Eric Hansen, South Bend Tribune: The pressure is building on Charlie Weis. CBS College Sports recruiting analyst Tom Lemming says in terms of pure talent, only USC has better players than Notre Dame.

Brett McMurphy, Tampa Tribune: South Florida's victory against Connecticut ended any hope Notre Dame had of playing in the Sun Bowl.

Brent Schrotenboer, San Diego Union-Tribune: The lengthy list of possible candidates for the opening at San Diego State includes Terry Bowden, Glen Mason and Dennis Green.

Bill Koch, Cincinnati Enquirer: As rumors continue to swirl about Brian Kelly and Tennessee, the Cincinnati coach has instructed his lawyers to "keep this stuff off my desk. I don't want to deal with it. I'm focused on Cincinnati. They call me every day. I won't return their calls."

Ron Morris, Columbia State: All signs are pointing to Dabo Swinney, who took over for Tommy Bowden, becoming Clemson's head coach.

Chris Dufresne, Los Angeles Times: Once again, the Bowl Championship Series is ready to discount the value of a head-to-head matchup.

Eric Crawford, Louisville Courier-Journal: He'd like to take some time to thank everyone -- "college presidents, the BCS, the Big 12, the Pac-10, the Big Ten, the Big East and the others who have opposed a playoff -- for the farce this has become. Nice work, folks. I don't think it could've been screwed up any better."

Jeff Walker, Lubbock Avalanche-Journal: Those outside of Lubbock will look at Texas Tech's 65-21 loss and automatically eliminate the Red Raiders from BCS contention, but they shouldn't. Why do one-loss Oklahoma, USC, Florida, Penn State and Texas still have a shot? Is this a double-elimination playoff?

Michael Sedor, Penn Live: Who is the best one-loss team? Don't dismiss Penn State.

Kirk Bohls, Austin American-Statesman: Dallas Cowboys tight end Martellus Bennett, who attended Texas A&M, on the Thanksgiving Day matchup between the Aggies and Texas Longhorns: "We're going to beat Texas 27-24. We're going to upset Texas. Actually it won't even be an upset. We expect to beat Texas -- the yellow bellies -- every year."
