Pat Dooley, Gainesville Sun: Florida was terribly outplayed and terribly outcoached Saturday night in The Swamp. Something has to change.
Jeff Schultz, Atlanta Journal-Constitution: Tackling isn't any better. Blocking isn't any better. Even the most basic of common-sense football moments — like, dude, the ball is on the ground, so fall on it — seem to leave Georgia Tech players looking perplexed, like preschoolers trying to comprehend chemical engineering.
Mike Hlas, Cedar Rapids Gazette: You believed this Iowa team could win the Big Ten title, could join the 2009 team as one that finished the season in the top 10, could be a truly special Hawkeyes squad that would do things matched by only a few of its predecessors in team history. You believed wrong.
Kurt Kragthorpe, Salt Lake Tribune: Utah has gone from conceivably contending for the national championship to just hoping the Las Vegas Bowl will take it.
Steve Politi, Newark Star-Ledger: Now we'll see how much patience the Rutgers fan base has left. Now we'll see if the diehards will stay loyal to Greg Schiano, the man who built this program and held it together under devastating circumstances this season. Or if they'll start to turn on him.
Cedric Golden, Austin American-Statesman: Texas' latest loss? Let's not talk about it.
Terry Hutchens, Indianapolis Star: Can Bill Lynch survive Indiana's 83-point debacle in Madison?
Kevin Scarbinsky, Birmingham News: Auburn has won the Southeastern Conference's West Division. One question: Should it be written in pencil or ink?
Mike Szvetitz, Opelika-Auburn News: Cam Newton wasn't made available to the media after the game. What does that say? That depends on how much time you want to spend awake at at night trying to figure it out.
Mark Bradley, Atlanta Journal-Constitution: Colorado is apparently interested in Mark Richt to fill its coaching vacancy. And that might be the best for all concerned: Richt to the Rocky Mountains and a new challenge, Georgia spared a decision no program wants to make.
