Reporters' Notebooks

Jon Solomon, Birmingham News: The top athletic program in the first 75 years of the Southeastern Conference? It's the Florida Gators. The best rivalry? That belongs to Auburn and Alabama. Plus the criteria used and a searchable database.

Mario F. Cattabiani, Philadelphia Inquirer: Pennsylvania legislators are on the take, including tickets to Penn State games, paid for by the university. "If they want to put me in jail over this, then go ahead," said Camille "Bud" George, a plain-talking representative from rural Clearfield County. "I am tired of this goddamn place anyway." Thanks to Kevin of We Are Penn State.

Jay F. Marks, Oklahoman: A Texas fan is seeking more than $100,000 in damages from an Oklahoma city bar and a Sooner fan for injuries he suffered to his scrotum in a "vicious attack" last summer.

Ferd Lewis, Honolulu Advertiser: Hawaii and Southern Methodist are talking about a 2009 game at Aloha Stadium.

Paul Finebaum, Mobile Press-Register: Alabama abandon Kenny Stabler? Not in this hour of need.

Doug Smock, Charleston Gazette: Former Marshall defensive end Johnathan Goddard died from injuries suffered in a motorcycle accident.
