College Football Notebook: Parker returns to Florida State

The college football notebook …
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. ó Florida State gets its top offensive playmaker back on Saturday when Preston Parker returns for a key early season Atlantic Coast Conference game against No. 18 Wake Forest following a two-game suspension that resulted from an arrest on weapons and drug charges.
A second-team all conference pick a year ago, Parker will be back on the field in time for what could be the 24th-ranked Seminoles most important game of the season.
“I could’ve lost my whole future,” said Parker, who has been kept off limits from reporters since discussing his situation last month.
NO BOOING PLEASE
AUBURN, Ala. ó Auburn University has a message for its students about Saturday’s game against LSU: Please don’t boo undefeated and No. 10 Auburn.
The dean of students, Johnny Green, sent a mass e-mail this week urging the student body to show good sportsmanship when No. 6 LSU visits Jordan-Hare Stadium. It read in part:
“First, please join me by agreeing to demonstrate your support for, and not criticism of, our football team. That means no booing! Remember, the team isn’t trying to lose the game ó the players work hard all spring and during fall camp to be ready to compete in the S.E.C.”
The message followed Auburn’s 3-2 win at Mississippi State last week, a victory that left fans grumbling about the lack of points from Auburn’s new spread offense.
With ESPN’s Gameday show due in Auburn for LSU, Green told students to “remember to have a great time, enjoy the weekend’s activities, watch our language and behavior, and display class, taste, and character in everything we do.”
VIRGINIA
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. ó Virginia quarterback Peter Lalich was dismissed from the team after admitting in court on Thursday that he violated terms of his drinking-related probation by consuming alcohol.
The dismissal, announced in a statement issued by the school, came on the same day that Lalich, 20, told a judge in Charlottesville General District Court that he had consumed alcohol while on probation following his arrest over the summer for underage drinking.
TENNESSEE
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. ó Tennessee coach Phillip Fulmer will not have to give a deposition in a lawsuit involving a former Alabama booster next week, according to a court order.
Fulmer was issued a subpoena on July 24 during the SEC’s media day to give testimony for Wendell Smith’s lawsuit against the NCAA stemming from a decade-old Alabama recruiting scandal.
