Temple coach Fran Dunphy has decided to redshirt freshman forward Anthony Lee this season. A decision on whether to redshirt senior forward Craig Williams will be made after a few more games. "[With] Craig, we're still trying to decide how to handle him," Dunphy said Thursday. "He's still not healthy enough to play anyway, yet. And he has to, obviously, improve his conditioning. " Lee and Williams have missed all of 19th-ranked Temple's games this season. The Owls are 12-3.

Erica Acuff, who has already qualified for the 2000 U.S. Olympic trials, has decided to sit out the 1999-2000 swim season at North Carolina. The former Episcopal Academy standout said she had a number of reasons for redshirting what would be her senior year. "The main reason is because I felt that I wasn't ready to be finished with swimming in college," said Acuff, who plans to return to school for the 2000-2001 season. "I don't think I've reached my potential in college yet. I have some goals I want to achieve here.

With redshirt freshman Chester Stewart bruised and battered after making his first collegiate start last week against Western Michigan, Temple football coach Al Golden said yesterday that two-year backup Vaughn Charlton might come off the redshirt list and start at quarterback Saturday at Miami of Ohio. Stewart, who took a pounding while making 12 runs for 29 yards in Temple's 7-3 loss, was in the lineup because starting quarterback Adam DiMichele was sidelined for three to six weeks after suffering a shoulder injury Sept.

Chris Clarke, a redshirt sophomore forward who had yet to make his Temple debut, and Carmel Bouchman, a seldom-used sophomore forward, have decided to leave the Owls' basketball program. Clarke, who used his redshirt season last year after transferring to Temple from Pensacola Junior College, decided to transfer to Division II Morehouse College in Atlanta. A university spokesman said Clarke was likely concerned about playing time. Bouchman, a native of Tel Aviv, Israel, decided to remain in his native country.

Temple's Cherry and White Day scrimmage was not exactly an offensive masterpiece, but it was productive as far as coach Al Golden was concerned. Sophomore Brandon McManus converted a 51-yard field goal on the final play of the first quarter for the only points as White shut out Cherry, 3-0, Saturday before 4,400 fans at Temple. "We got a lot of work done today," Golden said on Saturday. "That was the most we've worked this spring. We have one more scrimmage on Thursday. I'm just trying to get them to understand how long they have to maintain their focus on game day. " A lot of attention focused on the quarterbacks.

He missed the 2009 campaign after suffering a torn ACL in his right knee during the 2009 Blue-White Game.

Villanova defensive end Marlon Johnson will miss the rest of the season after tearing two knee ligaments in the season-opening 31-24 loss to Temple on Friday. The 6-foot-2, 255-pound redshirt sophomore, who had a sack early in the game, was injured in the second quarter and did not return. He tore the medial collateral ligament and the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. Johnson entered the season as the Wildcats' only returning starting defensive lineman. He finished with 26 tackles, an interception, and a forced fumble in 2009.

STATE COLLEGE - For Kyle Carter, Penn State's redshirt freshman tight end who has yet to play a down in his college career, they're role models. For Bill O'Brien, Penn State's first-year head coach, they set the leadership standard. They, the seniors of the Nittany Lions, are ready to lead their team into battle this season, perhaps now more than ever. The 2012 group of Lions has been a close one throughout. During this training camp, they've played paintball together, bowled together and joked about one another's antics to the media.

REDSHIRTING is a common practice for college athletes, especially football players. Theoretically, the idea is to give freshmen a year to adjust to college life before throwing in the additional pressures of being an athlete. That they get a free year to physically develop is an important side issue. There are other reasons for redshirting, most often serious injury, and the first recognized case dates back to the University of Nebraska in 1937. Still, while redshirting is declining as more true freshmen are playing, a new phenomena involving the practice appears to be growing popularity.

Something just didn't seem right with Temple running back Zaire Williams. He knew it and the Owls coaching staff realized it. Finally, there was a reason for the lack of explosion in his game. Williams, who will be a redshirt sophomore, had a bulging disk in his back last season. He saw limited action in the Owls' opening 37-7 win at Vanderbilt, with 17 yards on seven carries. Then an MRI exam revealed his season-ending injury. Williams said he didn't need surgery but went through strenuous rehabilitation.

WHEN PENN STATE tight end Kyle Carter looks at the record books 10 years from now, he won't see this season's 7-6 mark and just think of the wins and losses. He'll remember a year of personal frustrations ending in jubilation. When Carter arrived at Yankee Stadium last Saturday, the redshirt junior hadn't scored a touchdown in 25 games. But that changed when it mattered most. The 6-3, 241-pound Carter used his size to haul in the final touchdown of the Nittany Lions' overtime win over Boston College in the Pinstripe Bowl to end an individually disappointing campaign by celebrating with his teammates.

EIGHT DAYS ago, Penn State's football team held its annual preseason media day at Beaver Stadium, where nearly 90 non-freshmen players were spread out across the yet-to-be-painted natural grass field. The defensive linemen were stationed to a far corner, in an area of the field typically used as part of the opposition's sideline. Midway through the hour the players spent in the stadium, about 10 reporters huddled around the 6-4, 255-pound defensive end sporting a blue No. 18 uniform.

The Temple Owls have their leader back. That was obvious during the Owls' media day, when members of the team were asked about Scootie Randall's return after redshirting last season. "He's like that older guy on the court that knows everything about the game of basketball," sophomore point guard Will Cummings said. "So just having him back is a great deal. His being able to coach on the floor makes everything a lot easier for everyone else. " Owls coach Fran Dunphy took it a step further.

STATE COLLEGE - Philadelphian Deion Barnes stands 6-4 and weighs 246 pounds. Judging from his frame, compared with his soft-spokenness, one might think the redshirt freshman Nittany Lion is a gentle giant. Then one sees the defensive end's Big Ten Co-Freshman of the Week Award and his team-leading five tackles for loss and four sacks and probably thinks otherwise. "Deion works hard every day and he brings a great passion to us," said senior defensive end Sean Stanley, whom Barnes describes as the guy on the team he looks up to the most.

STATE COLLEGE - Last season, the Penn State student section just couldn't decide whom it wanted at quarterback. It didn't particularly like either of its options. When former Nittany Lion Rob Bolden took the snaps and did poorly, fans would hold up two fingers - a symbol for No. 11 - in an effort to sway late coach Joe Paterno to make the switch to Matt McGloin. But when McGloin would fail them, they would simply hold up one finger and ask for Bolden, who has since transferred to LSU where he is a third-stringer even though he still wears No. 1. Now, four games into the 2012 season, the fans aren't asking for anyone but McGloin.

STATE COLLEGE - Penn State head coach Bill O'Brien said Wednesday that quarterback-turned-tight end Paul Jones has left the team for personal reasons. The move comes after Jones, a redshirt sophomore who was recruited out of Sto-Rox High School (near Pittsburgh) as a four-star quarterback, was switched to a tight end after the season opener against Ohio. He couldn't beat out redshirt senior Matt McGloin for the starting quarterback job this summer, and true freshman Steven Bench would eventually earn the backup role.

STATE COLLEGE - What's the deal with that "Spacebook" and "Tweeter," anyway? When asked Tuesday about the attacks that sophomore kicker Sam Ficken has received on Twitter after missing four field goals and an extra point in Saturday's 17-16 loss to Virginia, Penn State head coach Bill O'Brien poignantly responded, though he didn't quite get the names of Facebook and Twitter right. "Obviously, I think it's absolutely ridiculous. Not just because it's a 19-year-old college kid. It's just because, I mean, it's anonymous in some ways, and in other ways it's not. But at the end of the day, you know, these guys are really playing hard, giving great effort for us," O'Brien said.
