Neill Woelk, Boulder Daily Camera: The outcry for Dan Hawkins' ouster is certain to grow louder. A 2-6 season that as recently as Saturday morning still presented the Buffaloes with the legitimate opportunity to contend for the Big 12 North has only solidified a growing call for a coaching change.
Loren Tate, Champaign News-Gazette: Rich Rodriguez stopped by Saturday and took Ron Zook's "hot seat" back to Ann Arbor with him. It's an old story. No matter how serious your problems, someone else is worse off.
Michael Rothstein, Ann Arbor.com: Who knew it would be a U-turn back to 2008? Michigan has looked flat uncompetitive the past two weeks.
Adam Zuvanich, Lubbock Avalanche Journal: Mike Leach has a message for those who were upset with his "fat, little girlfriends" comment. "To those that are offended, I'm offended that you don't think I get to exercise my First Amendment rights, so that makes two of us. That's pretty much all I have to say about that."
David Ching, Athens Banner-Herald: This has been the trend for at least the last season's worth of Georgia football — a span in which the Bulldogs own a 7-6 record. Boatloads of penalties. Awful defense. Confounding midgame lulls where the opponent buries the Bulldogs. It's not getting better.
Chris Dufresne, Eugene Register-Guard: The best team in the country right now wears green and goes "quack, quack." The team has the same name as the state: Oregon.
George Schroeder, Eugene Register-Guard: Should Oregon jump Boise State in the BCS standings? The answer is easy: Yes.
Cole Manbeck, Manhattan Mercury: Saturday's matchup against Oklahoma was a game Kansas State wasn't supposed to have a shot to win, but the Wildcats sent a resounding message to the college football world Saturday night: They are a team to be reckoned with.
T.J. Simers, Los Angeles Times: UCLA still stinks and remains a disgrace, a big-time school with a small-time football program.
Dan Bickley, Arizona Republic: No one is blaming Dennis Erickson yet, but maybe they should start. Arizona State needs two victories to become bowl-eligible, and it's not going to happen.
Steven M. Sipple, Lincoln Journal Star: Nebraska managed only 273 yards of offense against Baylor. By way of comparison, Kent State racked up 424 yards in a loss to the Bears earlier this season.
Brice Cherry, Waco Tribune-Herald: It's high time Baylor fans look in the mirror and deal with this fact — as a whole, they are the worst fans in the Big 12.
Kirk Bohls, Austin American-Statesman: Quite simply, Texas is probably emerging as the most dominant, balanced team in America right now.
Mike Hlas, Cedar Rapids Gazette: The bedeviling Iowa Hawkeyes are imperfectly perfect.
Dick Weiss, New York Daily News: It was an emotional day for Rutgers' Tim Brown, who was a childhood friend of Connecticut's Jasper Howard.
Ray Melick, Birmingham News: Auburn had the answer for critics: A victory over Mississippi that made the Tigers bowl-eligible.
Bill Knight, El Paso Times: Few came and even fewer stayed for the end in this Wild West thrill ride, this roller coaster that is a Texas El Paso season.
Kurt Kragthorpe, Salt Lake Tribune: Everything Utah's Kyle Whittingham touches these days turns to gold.
