Oversigning – it’s not just for the SEC anymore.

Looks like Dennis Erickson’s got to sabanize his roster:

Three reserve Arizona State football players — wide receiver Rodney Glass, defensive lineman Zach Niusulu and linebacker Antone Saulsberry — are no longer with the program.

Glass, a converted running back, was sidelined for spring drills due to academics, Niusulu was low on the depth chart at defensive tackle and Saulsberry never found a position after being recruited as a linebacker, switching to running back, then moving back to LB.

Saulsberry has one year of eligibility remaining, Glass and Niusulu three.

More departures are likely to come, as the Sun Devils must be down to the NCAA limit of 85 scholarship players in the fall.

    Don’t forget that Clemson is having to do this as well.

    I can sleep well at night however, knowing that no self-respecting Big Ten program will ever stoop so low as to oversign.

    I was just looking at the CFB data warehouse, and I noticed 2 things about the 2007 dawgs. The defense gave up more points than any other CMR defense, and the offense scored the second fewest points only to the 2002 team, which had the benefit of another game due to the SEC championship. Not really trying to bring around any conclusions, but I thought the defensive statistic was kind of interesting.
