Reporters' Notebooks

Sam Ross Jr., Tribune-Review: Penn State linebacker Paul Posluszny is ready to play, and cornerback Justin King said he will be when fall practice begins.

Mike Sullivan, North County Times: A building boom at San Diego State has left no room for an on-campus stadium. This could be problematic should the NFL's Chargers leave town and Qualcomm Stadium is razed.

Andy Staples, Tampa Tribune: Some people called the 1984 Florida Gators champions. The NCAA said the Gators cheated.

Carter Strickland, Atlanta Journal-Constitution: An increasing number of teams are restricting players' activities on the Internet. But is this a violation of free speech? (registration).

Mike Baldwin, Oklahoman: Oklahoma State athletic director Mike Holder, who raised ticket prices by 50%, knows the Cowboys have to start winning — and fast (registration).

Ron Higggins, Commercial Appeal: The new supervisor of football officials for the Southeastern Conference is about to be tossed into the fire (registration).

Scott Rabalais, Baton Rouge Advocate: Louisiana State could have enough talent to compete for the national championship. But just as easily, the Tigers could finish 6-6.
