Columnists' Corner

Chris Dufresne, Los Angeles Times: Fiesta Bowl officials see a thing of beauty when they look at Notre Dame Coach Crewcut Charlie Weis' sweaty upper lip.

Joe Henderson, Tampa Tribune: It's time they hide the Crayola box at Florida State so offensive coordinator Jeff Bowden can't design any more plays before the ACC title game.

Edwin Pope, Miami Herald: Only 37,629 were in attendance for Miami's victory over Virginia. It seems two-loss seasons are becoming too common for many Hurricane faithful (registration).

Kevin Van Valkenburg, Baltimore Sun: That didn't take long. The fallout from Maryland's 5-6 season has started. Defensive coordinator Gary Blackney won't be back in 2006 (registration).

Mark Bradley, Atlanta Journal-Constitution: Georgia Tech blew its chance to defeat Georgia. It's difficult to envision Chan Gailey beating the hated mutts anytime soon, if ever (registration).

Joey Johnson, Tampa Tribune: South Florida coach Jim Leavitt looks like a fool for calling a trick play late in the Bulls' devastating loss at Connecticut.

John Clay, Lexington Herald-Leader: Rich Brooks promises better days ahead, but after a 27-8 loss to Tennessee, there is little to suggest that the dawn of a new age is around the corner.

John Gambadoro, Arizona Republic: Put that phone down right now! No, you are not going to call that sportstalk show and demand that Arizona State fire Dirk Koetter.
