Norman Chad, Charleston Gazette: Chain-gang member, football games. It's among the five worst jobs in sports.
Mike Bianchi, Orlando Sentinel: Don't worry, Florida fans. You'll only have to put up with Steve Spurrier for, oh, another 10 years.
Tom Kubat, Lafayette Journal & Courier: Those preseason magazines? They're a lot like recruiting rankings and should come with a warning: For entertainment purposes only.
Ron Bracken, Centre Daily Times: You'd be hard-pressed to name a more anticipated, more hyped regular-season game in Penn State's history (thanks to reader Kevin for the tip!).
Terry Wood, Northwest Arkansas Times: Arkansas, which has not flirted with greatness since 1998, has nothing to lose if it starts a freshman at quarterback.
Berry Tramel, Oklahoman: Even if Adrian Peterson wins the Heisman, Oklahoma's rich tradition of running backs wouldn't match that of Ohio State or USC (registration).
Tom Keegan, Lawrence Journal-World: Down the rest of that cup of mud, let your brain awaken fully, and ask yourself: When is the last time you have been this excited to see a Kansas offense take the field?
Randy Kennedy, Mobile Register: A piece of advice for anyone thinking about placing a bet on the outcome of this season's BCS title game: Don't do it.
