Jonathan Okanes, Contra Costa Times: A trial date of Sept. 19 has been set to stop California's plans to build a $120 million athletic facility.

Pete Bosak, Centre Daily Times: At least 12 Penn State players began receiving their punishments from the Office of Judicial Affairs for their roles in a downtown melee in April, but none are expected to face permanent expulsion or miss classes during the season.

Michael Rothstein, Fort Wayne Journal Gazette: Could it be that Notre Dame's Crewcut Charlie Weis was paid only $565,566 for his first season as coach?

John Kaltefleiter, Athens Banner-Herald: Georgia coach Mark Richt won't have a say in the suspensions of tight end Tripp Chandler and quarterback Blake Barnes because of the university's ludicrous policy on alcohol-related arrests.

Tony Phifer, Coloradoan: Colorado State will wear throwback jerseys and helmets in its home opener against California to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the school's transition from Colorado A&M to Colorado State.
