Reporters' Notebooks

Gary Klein, Los Angeles Times: A USC "spoof" video featuring Brennan Carroll, son of USC coach Pete Carroll, has been pulled off YouTube. UCLA coach Rick Neuheisel reportedly was showing the video to recruits because he thought it reflected negatively on USC's program.

Jake Schaller, Colorado Springs Gazette: The U.S. Army is reviewing its "Alternative Service Option" program that allows West Point graduates to play professional sports immediately after graduation. The program is not in place at the Naval or Air Force academics.

Ken Tysiac, Charlotte Observer: The Atlantic Coach Conference said no to a proposal to add a ninth conference game. Coaches were firmly against the proposal.

Get the Picture: If you want to watch the 1947 Sugar Bowl between Georgia and North Carolina or the 1943 Rose Bowl between Georgia and UCLA, those games are now online.

Dennis Dodd, CBS Sports: Trickle-down economics appear to work in the coaching fraternity. Coordinators are cashing in and salaries of other assistants are on the rise as well.

Marc Morehouse, Cedar Rapids Gazette: You think it's easy putting together a cushy nonconference schedule featuring Maine and Florida International? An Iowa official explains how it's done.

Drew Edwards, Knoxville News-Sentinel: Junior receiver Kenny O'Neal is leaving Tennessee.

Mike Kern, Philadelphia Daily News: This is the most anticipated season for Temple since, well, feel free to fill in the blank.

Here is today's mystery link (not safe for work).
