Reporters' Notebooks

Eric Hansen, South Bend Tribune: Offensive guard Matt Carufel became the fourth Notre Dame sophomore to depart in the past four months.

J.P. Giglio, Raleigh News & Observer: Steve Spurrier after his South Carolina Gamecocks defeated North Carolina, 21-15m at Chapel Hill: "I didn't want to lose up here. I'm happy for the Dukies and the South Carolina people. I felt like I was coaching for both of them today."

Steve Spurrier is and will always act like a child. This win is for the Dukies too??? what are you talking about Steve? You spent three years there as a head coach. If they are so near and dear to your heart, why didnt you just stay there.

you ought to worry more about your anemic offense and overrated defense than the Dukies.

The 100% injury guy does not know what he's talking about.

Buffalo was not a DIII team prior to their move to the MAC. They were Division I-AA.
