Reporters' Notebooks

John Niyo, Detroit News: The punk band formerly known as the Dead Schembechlers is hinting at surprise concert this week in Ann Arbor.

Austin Ward, Casper Star-Tribune: Wyoming's Joe Glenn has apologized for his one-finger salute during Saturday's loss at Utah. He was also reprimanded by the Mountain West Conference.

Dwain Price, Fort Worth Star-Telegram: It's official: Texas Tech's Mike Leach is not backing off comments he made about officiating. "I don't have any regrets," he said.

Daniel Lyght, Fresno Bee: Western Athletic Conference commish Karl Benson said the hit by Fresno State's Marcus Riley on Hawaii's Colt Brennan was "legal," but he wouldn't acknowledge it as "clean."

Berry Tramel, Oklahoman: This one hurts, 50 years later. Oklahoma fans recall the loss to Notre Dame that ended the Sooners' 47-game winning streak.

Mark Snyder, Detroit Free Press: Lloyd Carr, expected to step down at season's end, says the only thing on his mind is the Michigan-Ohio State game.

Shannon Shelton, Detroit Free Press: Michigan State's Mark Dantonio laughed when he learned that his news conference after the Michigan loss had gained national attention and become a popular video on YouTube and blogs. :-)

Jake Schaller, Colorado Springs Gazette: Air Force could be headed to the Dec. 31 Armed Forces Bowl in Fort Worth.

Rocky Mountain News: The paper's Heisman poll has Dennis Dixon in the lead, followed by Tim Tebow and Chase Daniel.
