Robert Griffin III is gone, off to Washington, where he has already won the hearts of the burgundy-and-gold clad faithful, to no one’s surprise. He’ll be seen again in Waco, but only in highlight montages — he has time… launches it into the end zone… touchdown! — and on the odd fall Saturday, should he be free of all N.F.L. obligations. All that’s left are records, plenty of records, along with a duplicate of the greatest individual award in amateur sports, as well as the sort of imprint that comes only with being the finest player in program history. That’s no hyperbole: There’s Griffin, followed by a solid gap, then there’s Mike Singletary, then there’s Don Trull, and then there’s everybody else. So how does Baylor recover from losing the most transcendent figure in program history, not to mention losing him one year ahead of schedule?

Charlie Weis’ first recruiting class at Kansas included five F.B.S. transfers, including three from his old stomping grounds in South Bend. The remaining pair will sit out this coming season: Jake Heaps and former Oklahoma wide receiver Justin McCay will be key to K.U.’s success a year down the road, but neither will contribute to the Jayhawks’ cause come September. The three Notre Dame transfers, however, will serve in major roles for K.U. in Weis’ first season.

The details aren’t in question; whether Oregon stepped outside the lines, however, might be up for debate. According to a Yahoo! Sports report, Oregon gave more than $28,000 to a pair of individuals “with ties to multiple recruits who signed letters of intent with the school,” including redshirt freshman Lache Seastrunk, once a heralded recruit, and Heisman Trophy contender LaMichael James. That’s according to official Oregon state — that’s the state itself, not the school in Corvallis — records, numbers that place the Oregon program firmly in the cross hairs of the N.C.A.A.
