Reporters' Notebooks

Mark Snyder, Detroit Free Press: Pricing for the new suites at Michigan Stadium: $85,000 between the 35-yard lines, $75,000 between the 35 and the 10, $65,000 between the 10 and just past the end zone, and $55,000 from that point to the end of the structure. Each suite features 16 tickets and four parking passes, and the suite terms are three-, five- or seven-year commitments.

Chris Amos, Navy Times: The tradition-rich Army-Navy game could be coming to a city near you, and it might have a different name when it gets there. Thanks to Brian at the Business of College Football.

John Hunt, Oregonian: Oregon redshirt freshman defensive back Todd Doxey drowned Sunday in the McKenzie River in a swimming accident.

Jason Whitlock, Kansas City Star: Kansas is suing, a company that produces T-shirts lampooning Jayhawk coaches and opponents.

Bob Condotta, Seattle Times: Washington will continue the practice of having its players drink chocolate milk after practices. Officials say doing so helps replenish certain nutrients.

Jennifer Iannone and Crystal Owens, Athens Banner-Herald: Georgia sophomore defensive end Michael Lemon has been dismissed from the team. He was charged earlier this month with misdemeanor battery and felony aggravated battery after police said he beat a fellow student during a cookout at an Athens apartment complex.

Bryant-Jon Anteola, Fresno Bee: Is Fresno State this season's Boise State or Hawaii. The Bulldogs, who play Rutgers, Wisconsin, Toledo and UCLA in nonconference games, return nine starters on offense and six on defense from a 9-4 team.
