Reporters' Notebooks

Barry Jackson, Miami Herald: Miami's expected move of home games to Dolphin Stadium appears to be losing momentum, putting the Orange Bowl back in contention.

Eric Hansen, South Bend Tribune: It appears the 40-year marriage between Notre Dame football and the Westwood One Radio Network will come to an end at the conclusion of the 2007 season.

Jim Carty, Ann Arbor News: Is former Michigan quarterback and Stanford coach Jim Harbaugh, who ripped his former school for soft admissions standards for recruits, sore over not getting hired as Wolverine quarterbacks coach in 2002?

Brett McMurphy, Tampa Tribune: South Florida has extended its lease with the Tampa Sports Authority, meaning the Bulls will play home games in Raymond James Stadium for at least another five seasons. Plus why the deal makes sense.

Brent Zwerneman, San Antonio Express-News: Is this a make-or-break season for Texas A&M coach Dennis Franchione?

Bob Condotta, Seattle Times: Washington has sold 42,154 season tickets for the 2007 season. That's 444 shy of what the Huskies sold for the 2006 season.

Seth Emerson, Columbia State: South Carolina recruit Quintin Richardson was released from a hospital, two days after being stabbed at a friend's apartment.

Jim Kleinpeter, Times-Picayune: Speedy Louisiana State receiver Trindon Holliday will skip the IAAF World Track Championships in Japan to prepare for the upcoming football season.

Milo Bryant, Colorado Springs Gazette: Big, bad Colorado will play Eastern Washington in 2008, but doesn't have the vigor to play little, old Air Force.

Idaho Statesman: ESPN is still working out the kinks in its ESPY ballot. Boise State was incorrectly listed as an nominee for Best Finish. ESPN called the error "regrettable."

Ted Miller, Seattle Post-Intelligencer: Basically, the Pacific 10 Conference smoked a championship cigar and then stubbed it out on the forehead of the rest of the college sports community.

And here is today's mystery link.
