NOTING THE PANTHERS
Ron Turner was named FIU head football coach Jan. 4, 2013, bring-
ing with him experience coaching at the collegiate and NFL lev-
els during a career that has now spanned more than fve decades.
Turner, who enters his 37th season coaching in 2013, has spent 24
seasons at the collegiate level with nine of those seasons as a head
coach with Illinois and San J ose State. In his college seasons, he has
led or been an assistant for programs that went to eight bowl games
and produced numerous All-Americans and NFL draft picks.
The 2012 FIU roster boasted 52 student-athletes who had a com-
bined 759 career starts (includes 76 appearances from the kicker
and punter). Of those 52 student-athletes, 29 (or 56 percent) were
listed on the 2013 spring roster. Those 29 student-athletes have a
combined 180 starts (or 24 percent of last year’s fgure). FIU lost 23
student-athletes with a combined 579 career starts (or 76 percent).
Seventy-nine percent of FIU’s spring roster (61-of-77 players) comes
from the state of Florida. Twenty-three Florida counties are repre-
sented from the panhandle, to the frst coast and all along the way
through the local Tri-County area. Forty percent of FIU’s roster (31-
of-77 players) comes from the Tri-County (Miami-Dade 22, Broward
4 and Palm Beach 5) area.

NOTING THE OWLS
Carl Pelini begins his second season as head coach at Florida Atlan-
tic. His initial campaign in Boca Raton, Fla., saw the team improve
its national ranking by more than 20 spots in scoring defense, turn-
over margin (+35) and sacks allowed. The team also saw a dramatic
improvement in penalty yards per game, improving from No. 117 in
2011 (68.17) to No. 64 (51.15) last season.
The Owls return 54 letterwinners and 19 starters from last year’s
team. The offense brings back seven starters, while the defense has
eight returnees and four starters are back on the special teams unit.
Sophomore WR William Dukes earned second-team all-conference
honors last season and was named the team’s offensive MVP. He
was the wire-to-wire leader among the team’s receivers, fnishing
the season with 63 receptions for 979 yards and four touchdowns.
Highlighting Dukes’ season was a 204-yard performance against Lou-
isiana-Lafayette.
J unior LB Andre Kirk has started the majority of his frst two seasons
at Florida Atlantic and will be looked to as a defensive leader this
fall. He fnished fourth on the team in tackles last year with 70 and
added four tackles for loss and a fumble recovery.

NOTING THE BULLDOGS
Louisiana Tech lost 32 seniors and most of its coaching staff after
going 9-3 in 2012 and being ranked as high as 18th, but rebounded
quickly with the December hiring of new head coach Skip Holtz.
Throughout December and J anuary, Holtz compiled a coaching staff
and recruiting class, culminating in 21 National Letters of Intent be-
ing received on National Signing Day. Holtz won back-to-back C-USA
Championships at East Carolina in 2008-09 and led the Pirates to
four straight bowl appearances.
Sophomore RB Kenneth Dixon was named a Freshman All-American
last season as well as the WAC’s Freshman of the Year. He led the
nation in scoring with 28 total touchdowns (27 rushing) break’s Mar-
shall Faulk’s NCAA records for most touchdowns scored, most rush-
ing touchdowns scored and most points, all for a freshman. Dixon
had 200 rushes for 1,194 yards, j ust missing averaging 100 yards
a game at 99.5. Dixon set the WAC record for most rushing touch-
downs at any class level.
The Bulldogs return all but one defensive lineman, making that unit
the most experienced it has been in several years. Kendrick J ames,
Vontarrius Dora, Shakeil Lucas, Vernon Butler, Kevin Kisseberth
and IK Enemkpali all started or received signifcant playing time in
2012.

NOTING THE MEAN GREEN
Since the opening of Apogee Stadium in 2011 and the start of the
Dan McCarney era, North Texas has a home record of 7-4 in two
seasons, a stark improvement since 2005. In the previous six seasons
dating back to 2005, the Mean Green had won a combined fve home
games in six years.
For the frst time in 60 years the Mean Green had three players rush
for more than 500 yards in a single season. UNT eclipsed the 2,000
yard rushing mark for the third time in the last four seasons. Brandin
Byrd and Antoinne J immerson return and they combined to rush for
1,419 yards and nine touchdowns. It was the frst time since 1952
that three UNT players amassed 500 yards rushing in a season. It was
the third time in school history that the feat has occurred, with the
previous time coming in 1951.
Running back Antoinne J immerson rushed for the most yards in a
single season by a true freshman at North Texas since 2004 with 544
yards in 2012. Carlos Harris had 263 yards receiving, which was the
most by a true freshman since the 2009 season.
North Texas allowed the fewest sacks in the nation last season with
six. In nine of the 12 games the Mean Green did not allow a sack.
The Mean Green defense in 2012 held opponents to the fewest points
allowed given up in a single season since 2006. In addition the North
Texas defense held four opponents to 14 points or less, the most in
a single season since 2003.

NOTING THE OWLS
Rice returns 19 of 22 starters from last year’s 7-6 Armed Forces Bowl
champion team as well as 54 total lettermen. At the same, they will
be led by an intact coaching staff. This is the frst time in David Bai-
liff’s seven springs that the team will be guided by the same staff.
The Owls dominated the second half of the 2012 Bell Helicopter
Armed Forces Bowl, defeating Air Force, 33-14. J unior WR J ordan
Taylor was named MVP after catching nine passes for a career-high
153 yards and his frst three touchdowns of the season. Rice set a
team record for total offense in a bowl game with 508 yards, sur-
passing the 455 the Owls had in the 2008 Texas Bowl.
Senior QB Taylor McHargue completed 60 percent of his passes for
2,209 yards and 12 touchdowns with just fve interceptions. He was
also the leading rusher among quarterbacks in C-USA, gaining 667
yards on 164 attempts. McHargue tied for ffth in the league in rush-
ing touchdowns with 11.
Senior K Chris Boswell had six feld goals of 50-plus yards last sea-
son, the most in the FBS. His 11 career feld goals from 50 yards or
longer are nearly triple the total of the next-highest returning kicker
(Aaron J ones of Baylor has four). Boswell set school season records
for feld goals (23) and kick scoring (114) in addition to career re-
cords for feld goals (51) and feld goal attempts (67) and kick scor-
ing (270). He led C-USA in kick scoring and feld goals and fnished
fourth overall in scoring.

NOTING THE GOLDEN EAGLES
Todd Monken takes over as the new Southern Miss head coach this
fall after serving as offensive coordinator at Oklahoma State. He is
the third Golden Eagles head football coach of the last four hired
whose previous j ob was offensive coordinator at Oklahoma State.
Each of the previous two (J eff Bower and Larry Fedora) won at least
one Conference USA championship during his tenure at the school.
Senior DB Deron Wilson has started all 39 games of his career for
the Golden Eagles. His 34 passes broken up ranks second on the
school’s career chart (behind Greg Brooks/ 2000-03 who had 47) and
his eight interceptions are the most of any active Golden Eagle. Wil-
son registered 61 tackles and nine pass breakups last season.
Senior LB Alan Howze is the team’s leading returning tackler after
fnishing second with 66 stops last season. He added fve tackles for
loss, 2.5 sacks and forced two fumbles.
The Golden Eagles return three of their top fve rushers from a sea-
son ago, including sophomore J alen Richard, who tallied 426 yards
and four scores on the ground in 2012.
Southern Miss again plays a challenging nonconference schedule that
includes trips to Nebraska, Arkansas and Boise State in September.

NOTING THE GREEN WAVE
Senior WR Ryan Grant concluded the 2012 season with seven 100-
yard games, which was the most among C-USA players, and tied the
school single-season mark set by Marc Zeno in 1987. Grant finished
with 76 receptions for 1,149 yards. In j ust three seasons, he ranks
eighth in school history in yards per catch (14.5), 11th in receiving
yards (1,730) and 12th in touchdown catches (12).
Senior K Cairo Santos was named the 2012 winner of the prestigious
Lou Groza Award. Santos completed one of the finest campaigns by a
kicker in NCAA history by finishing a perfect 21-of-21 on field goal at-
tempts. Santos was named to the All-Conference USA First Team and
j oined 1996 Groza winner Marc Primanti as the only kickers in FBS
history to stay perfect throughout a season in which they attempted
20 or more. Santos finished with one more make than Primanti, who
was 20-of-20. Santos, who also connected 27-of-28 PAT attempts,
led the FBS with 12, 40-plus yard field goals, including a pair of
50-yarders, and set the school record with a 57-yarder vs. Rice. He
also nailed a 54-yarder against ULM. Santos led C-USA in field goal
percentage (1.000), field goals per game (1.75) and ranked eighth
nationally in field goals per game while sitting fifth in kicking points
scored (89) per game (7.4), tied for fifth in PAT percentage (.963)
and was seventh in overall points per game (7.4).
Sophomore CB Lorenzo Doss played in all 12 games with nine starts
as a true freshman in 2012, earning C-USA All-Freshman honors. He
led the team in interceptions (5) while sitting tied for second in
fumble recoveries (1), seventh with 44 tackles (33 solo, 11 assists)
and tied for sixth in pass break-ups (2). Doss recorded the most in-
terceptions by a Tulane freshman since 2003 and his interception
total was the seventh-best effort in school history.

NOTING THE GOLDEN HURRICANE
Tulsa has won 10-plus games in four of the last six seasons and has
been to a bowl game in seven of the last eight seasons.
Tulsa defeated Iowa State in the AutoZone Liberty Bowl, 31-17. The
victory allowed the Golden Hurricane to tie the school record for
victories in a season with 11 (set in 2008). Tulsa won the C-USA
Championship Game over UCF, 33-27, in overtime. The victory gave
the Golden Hurricane its frst conference title since 2005.
Senior RB Trey Watts was named MVP of both games. He ran for 149
yards and had 249 all-purpose yards in the Liberty Bowl, while rush-
ing 25 times for 134 yards, one touchdown and scored on a 54-yard
punt return in the C-USA title game. Watts fnished the season with
a league-high 2,191 all-purpose yards (1,108 rushing, 343 receiving,
154 punt return yards, 586 kickoff return yards).
Tulsa returns its three starting receivers (Keyarris Garrett, J ordan
J ames, Thomas Roberson), two tailbacks that shared starting time
and combined to rush for 2,044 yards and 10 TDs (Trey Watts, 1,108
yards and 3 TDs and J a’Terian Douglas, 936 yards, 7 TDs) and start-
ing QB (Cody Green).
Senior LB Shawn J ackson has 18 career sacks for -113 yards and
37 TFLs for -162 yards. He needs two more sacks to tie the school

NOTING THE BLAZERS
UAB returns eight starters on both sides of the ball for the 2013 sea-
son, including an offensive unit that ranked among the best in school
history last fall. The Blazers registered 5,029 offensive yards and av-
eraged 28.2 points last season, third-most in the UAB record book
in both categories. In addition, UAB’s 308.8 passing yards per game
established a school record and was the 19th-best mark in the coun-
try in 2012.
The Blazers will bring back their top passer, leading rusher and best
receiver from last season for the 2013 campaign. QB Austin Brown
set a UAB freshman record for passing yards in a season with 2,673
while Darrin Reaves tallied the third-highest rushing total for a sea-
son in Blazer annals with 1,037 yards. Reaves also had 13 rushing
touchdowns. WR J ackie Williams registered 58 receptions for 799
yards, team bests in both.
J ackie Williams will enter his senior season in 2013 with the nation’s
longest consecutive games streak with at least one reception. Wil-
liams has now caught at least one pass in every game he has played
for the Blazers during his career and has a catch in 35 straight con-
tests.
K Ty Longhas made 30-of-36 field goals in his first two years as a
Blazer and his 83.3 percent accuracy mark is the best in UAB history.
He has not missed a field goal from inside 43 yards during his career.
He owns the two-longest field goals in UAB history having kicked a
54-yarder at Ohio State and a 53-yarder against SE Louisiana.

NOTING THE MINERS
UTEP football begins a new era under the direction of frst-year
head coach Sean Kugler. He is no stranger to the program, having
lettered at UTEP from 1985-88 and was part of the football staff
from 1993-2000. Kugler spent three seasons as the offensive line
coach for the Pittsburgh Steelers prior to his return to the Sun City.
He spent 11 years in the NFL having also coached with the Detroit
Lions and Buffalo Bills.
The Miners return 45 letterwinners and 13 starters from last year’s
squad. UTEP has seven starters returning on offense and four start-
ers back on defense. Overall, the Miners have 24 players who have
starting experience returning for 2013.
Six individuals who accounted for 94 percent of UTEP’s rushing yards
from 2012 return for the 2013 campaign. UTEP scored 32 touch-
downs last season. Eight of the nine players who scored last year
return and they combined for 24 of those 32 TDs. The Miners also
bring back their primary place kicker, Steven Valadez, who hit all
10 of the Miners’ feld goals.
J unior RB Nathan J effery was UTEP’s leading rusher with 897 yards
(4.9 avg.) on 184 carries in 2012. He registered two contests with
more than 170 yards rushing (Oklahoma and UCF) and recorded
three multiple touchdown games. J ordan Leslie compiled 973 yards
on 51 receptions, the eight-highest season total in school history.
He had three contests with more than 100 receiving yards, including
218 yards at Tulsa.

NOTING THE ROADRUNNERS
UTSA begins its third season of play this fall and frst as a member of
Conference USA. The Roadrunners were 8-4 overall and 3-3 in their
frst and only season in the WAC a year ago. That came on the heels
of a 4-6 inaugural campaign as an FCS independent in 2011.
The Roadrunners return frst-team all-conference safety Triston
Wade. He tied for the team lead with four interceptions, four forced
fumbles and two fumble recoveries in his 12 starts a year ago and
also ranked second on the squad with 74 tackles (45 solos) and 11
pass breakups. Wade has had a hand in a total of 13 turnovers (seven
fumbles/six INTs) in the frst 22 games of his career.
J unior punt returner Kenny Harrison ranked second in the FBS last
fall with his 17.3 average. He returned 12 punts for 208 yards, in-
cluding a 79-yarder for a score against Texas State.
The Roadrunners once again will feature one of the nation’s small-
est senior classes. UTSA has 10 seniors (nine scholarship) on its 2013
roster and had a national-low six (fve scholarship) last season.
UTSA ranked seventh nationally with its 1.17 turnover margin per
game last season. The Roadrunners recovered 16 fumbles and inter-
cepted 13 passes, giving them a total of 29 forced turnovers (t-20th
FBS) in the season’s 12 outings. Conversely, UTSA gave the ball away
j ust 15 times last season (8 FRs/ 7 INTs). The Roadrunners scored 22
times (15 TDs/ 7 FGs) following an opponent turnover in 2012.

NOTING THE 49ERS
Charlotte will play its inaugural football season in 2013. In 2013
and 2014, the 49ers will compete as an FCS Independent. Charlotte,
which j oins Conference USA in all other sports in 2013, will begin
competition in Conference USA football in 2015. Charlotte is one
of the nation’s frst teams to be welcomed into an FBS Conference
before having held its frst practice.
Head coach Brad Lambert, hired Mar. 1, 2011, most recently served
as Defensive Coordinator at Wake Forest, during his 10-year stint
with the Demon Deacons. An all-Big Eight Defensive Back at Kan-
sas State, Lambert also coached at Georgia, Marshall and Oklahoma
during his 25-year coaching career.
Lambert’s staff includes a pair of coordinators with more than 20
years of coaching experience, as well: Offensive Coordinator J eff
Mullen with 21 years and Defensive Coordinator Bruce Tall with 30
years. Charlotte’s current 11-man, start-up coaching staff has over
100 years of collegiate coaching experience and has coached in 21
bowl games.
The 49ers will play their games on McColl-Richardson Field, thanks to
the generous combined contribution from Hugh McColl, the banking
industry pioneer who built Bank of America into one of the nation’s
strongest fnancial institutions and J erry Richardson, the owner of
the NFL Carolina Panthers who built that expansion franchise into a
Super Bowl participant. The 15,300-seat on-campus facility opened
for Charlotte’s practice last October.
The 49ers football feld house, which includes the locker rooms, of-
fces, academic center, strength training suite is named after long-
time director of athletics J udy Rose. Rights to name the facility
were purchased by Dale Halton, who, along with Chancellor Dr.
Philip Dubois, saw ft to name the building in her honor: The Judy
W. Rose Football Center.
Before ever playing a game, Charlotte inked contracts to play fu-
ture games against Kansas State, Virginia Tech, Temple and Eastern
Michigan, among other schools.

Cairo Santos of Tulane won the 2012 Lou Groza Award,
given annually to the nation’s top placekicker.
Tulane’s Cairo Santos Named the 2012 Lou Groza Award Winner
It was a perfect ending to a perfect season. December 6 in front of a national television audience on ESPN, Tulane j unior kicker Cairo San-
tos was named the 2012 winner of the prestigious Lou Groza Award during the 2012 Home Depot College Football Awards Show at the Walt
Disney World Resort. Legendary NFL kicker and former New Orleans Saint Morten Andersen presented Santos with the 21st Groza Award.
Santos, who was named a fnalist, along with Florida's Caleb Sturgis and Florida State's Dustin Hopkins, completed one of the fnest cam-
paigns by a kicker in NCAA history by fnishing a perfect 21-of-21 on feld goal attempts. Santos was named to the All-Conference USA First
Team and j oined 1996 Groza winner Marc Primanti as the only kickers in FBS history to stay perfect throughout a season in which they at-
tempted 20 or more, but Santos fnished with one more make than Primanti, who was 20-of-20 in 1996.
Santos, who hails from Sao Paulo, Brazil, but prepped as an exchange student at St. Joseph's Academy in St. Augustine, Fla., is the second
Green Wave kicker to receive the nation's top place-kicking honor, joining All-American Seth Marler who claimed the Groza Trophy in 2001.
Santos is now the third kicker from Conference USA to claim the Lou Groza Award, joining Marler and Cincinnati's Jonathan Ruffn (2000).
Santos, who also connected 27-of-28 PAT attempts, led the nation with 12, 40+ yard feld goals, including a pair of 50-yarders, and set the
school record with a 57-yarder vs. Rice, which tied for the fourth longest in the nation this season. He also nailed a 54-yarder against ULM.
Santos led C-USA in feld goal percentage (1.000), feld goals per game (1.75) and ranked eighth nationally in feld goals per game while
sitting ffth in kicking points scored (89) per game (7.4), tied for ffth in PAT percentage (.963) and was seventh in overall points per game
(7.4).
