Jamie Pollard, Iowa State's athletic director, is upset with officiating in the Cyclones' 37-20 loss to Oklahoma State on Saturday. Pollard wasn't specific, but it's likely his venting centered on a fourth-and-one play involving the Cowboys' Desmond Roland, who was stopped short of the goal line as time ran out in the first half. However, the play was reviewed and the on-field call was overturned, giving Oklahoma State a touchdown and 13-6 lead at halftime.
Howie Kussoy, New York Post: Has there ever been a bigger football weekend in Mississippi? Mississippi plays host to Alabama and Mississippi State entertains Texas A&M. The teams are a combined 17-0. Reality check. The home teams are about to suffer their first losses of the season.
Bruce Feldman and Stewart Mandel, Fox Sports: Maryland has been making noise since joining the Big Ten. The Terrapins can make even more with big, bad Ohio State coming to town. It's not going to happen. The Buckeyes might not cover, but they're going to win.
Jon Wilner, College Hotline: Looking for Friday night action? Wilner says take San Diego State and give the points at Fresno State. He was 4-1 in his Pacific 12 picks last week and had Arizona on Thursday night. He is picking Stanford to beat Notre Dame and taking Utah and the points at UCLA.
Kelly Stewart, Las Vegas Review-Journal: Northwestern is coming off a huge road win at Penn State. That's great, bub, but now Wisconsin is coming to Evanston. Give the eight points and load up on the Badgers.
Mike Hlas, Cedar Rapids Gazette: Hlastradamus has suffered his ups and downs, with his record standing at 11-12-2. That is nothing to be proud of, but it is about to change, beginning with Oklahoma State (-17) against Iowa State and Nebraska (+7.5) vs. Michigan State.
Charlie Weis is laughing all the way to the bank. The ousted Kansas coach — winner of six of 28 games at Lawrence — signed a five-year deal in 2011 at $2.5 million a year. Kansas still owes Weis $5.625 million of the $12.5 million deal, and the former coach will receive monthly installments through December 2016 to close out the contract. If our math is correct, that's a whopping $208,333 a month. It also means that Kansas paid roughtly $2.08 million for each of Weis' six wins.
Not only that, but Weis is still being paid by Notre Dame, where he coached from 2005-09. That school signed Weis to a ridiculous 10-year deal barely halfway though the first year of the coach's original six-year contract. When he was fired in 2009, Weis received an initial $6.6 million in severance. The payments have continued, with tax records showing Weis was paid around $2.1 million in 2010, 2011 and 2012. He will continue to receive annual payments from Notre Dame through December 2015, making Weis one of the school's highest-paid employees.
