Notre Dame loses a pair and Troy State loses a running back as goes team-by-team with the Independents.

Notre Dame
The Irish received bad news over the weekend as brother Greg and Chris Olsen decided to transfer. Greg, a freshman TE, got his release from coach Tyrone Willingham Monday, less than 48 hours after his older brother, Chris, the team's backup QB. Chris will transfer to Virginia and Greg is reportedly leaning toward Miami (Fla.).

Willingham would not discuss Greg's status Monday but was "not concerned about the perception of a package deal." Freshman QB Brady Quinn will move into the No. 2 slot behind starter Carlyle Holiday.
