TRANSFERS HAVE REACHED MASSIVE PROPORTIONS IN DIVISION I, WITH MORE THAN 400 PLAYERS CHANGING SCHOOLS LAST SEASON. THESE SECOND-CHANCE RECRUITS WERE SNAPPED UP BY TOP PROGRAMS—BUT NOT ALL OF THEM ARE BULL'S-EYE CHOICES TO LEAVE A BIG MARK IN THEIR NEW ROLES
GAEL FORCE WIN The winds of change were howling over the 17th hole at Medinah Country Club late on Sunday afternoon when Rory McIlroy took a bow in front of the gallery. Moments earlier, McIlroy had gained Europe's second point of the day with his defeat of Keegan Bradley. It was just the beginning of a final-day rout that saw the Euros come from four down to defeat the U.S. 14½--13½ and retain the Cup (page 56).

DAWG SNOOP Some four dozen boys and girls were the distinguished house guests of UGA IX before last Saturday's Georgia-Tennessee showdown between the hedges. This youngster was content to let the sleeping Dawg lie; Georgia, meanwhile, played with more bite, defeating the Vols 51--44 (page 60).
