Montana coach Bobby Hauck has disgraced his profession. Wonder why the American Football Coaches Association hasn't weighed in on this issue...Let's see, because it condones this conduct by ignorning it. Bullying students, real nice Bobby ... 

Let’s see, the SEC officials blew in the Florida-Arkansas game. Then, Bobby Petrino is reprimanded for reminding them that they blew it. The SEC can’t suspend the officials and reprimand Petrino at the same time. Only the SEC can tell Marc Curles he is wrong?

 There’s tough and there’s SEC tough: Since suffering a broken jaw and concussion on Oct. 3 against LSU, Georgia tailback Caleb King has missed one game while subsisting on a liquid diet. King scored two touchdowns against last week against Vanderbilt. The Bulldogs are off this week before the Cocktail Party on Oct. 31.

 Whatever happened to that Sam Bradford press conference to announce his future? Love this stat: Three starting Big 12 quarterbacks have started against Texas. Three Big 12 starting quarterbacks have not finished this games.

 WWL saw USC’s Matt Barkley on some Heisman lists this week. Check the Pac-10 first. Barks isn’t even the best freshman quarterback in his own league. Stanford’s Andrew Luck has thrown for almost 1,600 yards with nine touchdowns.

Pittsburgh’s Dion Lewis (fourth in rushing) is the only freshman in the top 22 in rushing.

 National rushing leader Ryan Mathews of Fresno State is on pace to rush for almost 2,000 yards. Four of the six rush defenses he will face the remainder of the season are ranked 98th or worse against the run (New Mexico State, Utah State, Louisiana Tech and Illinois).

Looking ahead to next week:  Florida-Georgia in the Cocktail Party. Dawgs get to rest up this week. Florida is at Mississippi State. Tebow plays his last Georgia game.

 USC at Oregon. Trojans haven’t won in the state of Oregon since 2005 and need this one to stay in the Pac-10 and national championship hunt. Beavers, though, could end USC’s seven-year run of dominance with a win.

Texas at Oklahoma State. Cowboys thought they should have beaten the Horns last year in Austin. If they win in Stillwater, Pokes take control of the Big 12 South.

Let’s see, the SEC officials blew in the Florida-Arkansas game. Then,  for reminding them that they blew it. The SEC can’t suspend the officials and reprimand Petrino at the same time. Actually, they can, and should.

Petrino isn't supposed to make public comments about the officiating, regardless of their truth value, just as he's not supposed to comment about other coaches (can you say "Kiffen"? I knew ya could...)

In particular, given that the SEC officials were clearly already doing THEIR job and doing something about the matter, he had even less business commenting than he usually might.

So yeah, they can, and should , be reprimanding both of them.

Stupid claim, Dodd.

I think he means that if O st wins today, it will give USC 2 losses which will put them in a big hole against Oregon who has 0 pac-10 losses.  7 years of dominance is referring to 7 years of winning the pac 10

Dodd,

Your statement about "USC at Oregon" sounds a bit confusing.  You state: "Trojans haven’t won in the state of Oregon since 2005 and need this one to stay in the Pac-10 and national championship hunt." This is true, but then you mention that the BEAVERS could end the dominance with a win.  However, the Beavers are playing at the Coliseum.  It isn't until next week, when USC plays the Ducks, where the game will be in Oregon.
