Hmm, can't seem to find my earlier postseason updates thread, so I guess I'll create a new one.

And his Nov. 19th update that was in the original (and now pruned) thread: (http://sports.yahoo.com/ncaaf/news?slug=jm-prospects111907&prov=yhoo&type=lgns)
POSTSEASON UPDATES

• Nebraska senior quarterback Sam Keller is still hopeful that he can rehab his injured left shoulder in time to play in the East-West Shrine Game. Keller has completed more than 63 percent of his passes this season, but had a touchdown-to-interception ratio of 14:10.

• Alabama defensive lineman Wallace Gilberry has accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl.

• Clemson offensive tackle Barry Richardson has accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl. Richardson needs to pick up his game as many scouts believe he is an underachiever.

• Newbery (S.C.) offensive lineman Heath Benedict has accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl. Benedict, who is recovering from a minor injury, will be allowed to practice at both tackle and guard, although most scouts believe he is an interior lineman.

• The injury to Oregon QB Dennis Dixon could create a spot for Erik Ainge (Tennessee), Matt Flynn (LSU) or Chad Henne (Michigan) to be added to the Senior Bowl.

• Hawaii wide receivers Jason Rivers and C.J. Hawthorne as well as offensive lineman Hercules Satele have accepted invitations to the Hula Bowl.

• Kentucky wide receiver Stevie Johnson has accepted an invitation to the Hula Bowl.

Guess I'll also include these earlier notes:
