Chris Foster, Los Angeles Times: In a decision that is sure to spark controversy, Ben Olson was named UCLA's starting quarterback over Patrick Cowan.

Michael Hunt, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: The decision by the NCAA to do away with text messaging should be cheered. It's a victory for athletes' privacy.

Lafayette Journal and Courier: Former Purdue player Kyle Williams is facing up to 28 years in prison after a conviction on five of six criminal counts.

Jeff Wilson, Fort Worth Star-Telegram: Texas Christian players Stephen Hodge and Robert Henson have been charged with weapons-related misdemeanors.

Hmmm, Patrick Cowan. A guy whole led UCLA to a win over USC, a guy that got his team pumped (confidence), took a mean hit running the sideline in the game and got up right away. This might end up like the Steve Bellisari and Craig Krenzel situation at Ohio State. It's not totally similar, but after Krenzel beat Michigan it left us OSU fans scratching our heads and saying, "why wasn't this guy starting?"
