Reporters' Notebooks

Wendell Barnhouse, Fort Worth Star-Telegram: Two weeks into the season, the Pacific 10 is second only to the Southeastern Conference.

Tom D'Angelo, Palm Beach Post: There's the Big East, then there's the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Bob Condotta, Seattle Times: Now comes the tough part for Washington. The Huskies must navigate a murderer's row of Ohio State, UCLA and USC the next three weeks.

Eric Hansen, South Bend Tribune: Congratulations to Crewcut Charlie Weis. His Fighting Irish have put together four losses by 20 points or more for the first time in team history.

Mark Snyder, Detroit Free Press: Michigan quarterback Chad Henne is doubtful for Saturday's game against Notre Dame.

John Canzano, Oregonian: Three Michigan recruits who witnessed the Wolverines' loss to Oregon now say they want to go to — you guessed it — Oregon. Thanks to Kevin of We Are Penn State.

Rob Parker, Detroit News: Lloyd Carr should do what's best for Michigan and step down at season's end.

Chris Dufresne, Los Angeles Times: Don't look now, but another Bowl Championship Series nightmare may be brewing.

Pete Thamel, New York Times: Expectations have changed overnight at Louisiana State and South Florida.

Dirk Facer, Deseret Morning News: Utah coach Kyle Whittingham is taking responsibility for the program's first 0-2 start since 2000.

Mike Phillips, Miami Herald: Kirby Freeman or Kyle Wright? After a big loss at Oklahoma, Miami is undecided on who will start at quarterback against Florida International.

Brett McMurphy, Tampa Tribune: Despite a victory at Auburn, South Florida is unable to crack the Associated Press top 25.

Brian Murphy, Idaho Statesman: Boise State proved it is not ready for prime time. The Broncos need new leaders, a new imperative.

Bryant-Jon Anteola, Fresno Bee: That tough and rugged Fresno State team that wouldn't wilt in the face of adversity for so many years is back. Right? "Almost — not quite," Pat Hill says.
