Reporters' Notebooks

Chadd Cripe, Idaho Statesman: He's interested. Boise State's Dan Hawkins says he "probably would listen" if Colorado contacts him about replacing Gary Barnett.

Chris Dempsey, Denver Post: How does Butch Davis and Colorado sound? The former Miami and Cleveland coach appears to be the front-runner.

Bob Clark, Eugene Register-Guard: Oregon receiver Matt Bramow allegedly spit on a police car. Shortly thereafter, he was fitted for handcuffs.

Robbie Andreu, Gainesville Sun: Florida might want to recruit a few quarterbacks. No. 2 Josh Portis is packing his bags.

Michael Wallace, Clarion Ledger: At least 14 players, including nine from Mississippi Madman Ed Orgeron's February signing class, have left the team since last summer. The latest is quarterback Ethan Flatt.

Honolulu Advertiser: You knew this was coming when Hawaii failed to become bowl eligible. The Hawaii Bowl is desperate for fans.

Jason Kelly, South Bend Tribune: There's a lot of pressure on Notre Dame. Lose to Ohio State and the bowl losing skid is up to eight.

Lenn Robbins, New York Post: It seems as if Vince Young has a little Joe Namath in him (hopefully not the Suzy Kolber part). He's predicting a Texas victory in the Rose Bowl (registration).
