Chuck Carlton, Dallas Morning News: The war of words between Texas A&M's Mike Sherman and Texas Tech's Mike Leach involving former Aggie quarterback Stephen McGee continued. Sherman: "There is nothing Mike Leach could ever say that would offend me. I do find it unfortunate, however, that a college coach feels the need to question the handling of a player by a staff particularly without any knowledge of the facts or the extent of a player's injury. It is equally bothersome that a football coach would question the draft status of a player. This doesn't make any sense to me."
Vince Grippi, Spokesman-Review: Washington and Washington State administrators are trash-talking after a bill to renovate Husky Stadium failed in the legislature. Husky athletic director Scott Woodard said Cougar fans who protested against the bill are partially to blame for it failing to pass. "The most disappointing thing about it is that [WSU president] Elson Floyd and [WSU athletic director] Jim Sterk didn't do anything to try to contain that little group of Cougars that were out there doing that. It was a shame that they didn't show leadership or courage to curtail something like that."
Jon Nyatawa, Omaha World-Herald: Former Nebraska linebacker Cody Glenn is backtracking on his story that he was suspended last fall for selling tickets, but did not disclose the reason.

"That was for the ticket sales," Cerrato said. "You know what? Our scouts do a good job with all the information we get. I talked to their people down there, and we felt comfortable with everything."
