Mark Viera, Washington Post: Brandon Kennedy has put it all on the line in an attempt to bring a playoff to college football. He has moved from his home state of Washington to Washington D.C. and has lived homeless for the past 13 weeks as he lobbies for change. He has drafted a paper, "The Kennedy Proposal," that outlines the new system, and by his estimate has sent more than 15,000 emails and letters to college athletic conference commissioners, athletic directors and NCAA officials over the past year. With video.
Bob Wieneke, South Bend Tribune: Notre Dame backup quarterback Nate Montana, the son of former Irish great Joe Montana, has enrolled at Pasadena City College.

Ron Morris, Columbia State: Steve Spurrier's omission — and that of his assistant Jamie Speronis — of Florida quarterback Tim Tebow from the first-team ballot all-SEC team merely exposed the fallacy of preseason teams. They are silly. They are meaningless. They should be abolished, or at least never be given credence.
Berry Tramel, Oklahoman: Not even Spurrier, as plain-spoken of a coach as we've got in the sport, has the courage of his convictions. He either wussed out and found a scapegoat or didn't care enough in the first place what was attributed to his name.
Dennis Dodd, CBS Sports.com: Spurrier's fraudulent SEC vote makes a fraud of the coaches poll, too.
Andy Baggott, Badger Beat: In the last five years, no other front office in the Big Ten has had more turnover than Wisconsin. Plus, if you're buying what Barry Alvarez is selling, the Badgers are trying to upgrade their nonconference schedule.
Dugan Arnett, Lawrence Journal-World: Running back Jocques Crawford, a former national junior college offensive player of the year who was expected to jumpstart Kansas' running game, has left the team.
Tim Griffin, ESPN.com: Blaine Irby, Texas' projected starting tight end, will miss the season as he recovers from a dislocated right knee, an injury he sustained last season. Video of Irby's injury against Rice.
