Notre Dame suspended star wide receiver Michael Floyd indefinitely Monday, a day after he was cited for drunk driving and authorities said his blood-alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit. Coach Brian Kelly said the suspension will not be lifted until Floyd changes his behavior and the legal and university discipline procedures run their course. It was Floyd's third run-in with the law over alcohol since 2009. Floyd was driving a white Cadillac at 3:18 a.m. Sunday when he ran a stop sign about a block from the school's main entrance, according to a probable cause affidavit from St. Joseph County deputy prosecutor Chris Daniels filed Monday.

No. 13 Arizona Cardinals: WR Michael Floyd, Notre Dame - - Floyd set a school record by catching 100 balls last year, eclipsing the mark of 93 set by current Seattle receiver Golden Tate. At one point a team captain, Floyd was stripped of that honor after being cited for drunk driving in April 2011. He was suspended from the team, but only for the off-season, returning to play and never missing a game. Comment: At 6-3, 200 pounds, Floyd will be a big, capable complement to Larry Fitzgerald.

— The day before his team took the field for its Champs Sports Bowl matchup with Notre Dame, Florida State Coach Jimbo Fisher acknowledged that he had higher hopes for his team than how they ended up in 2011. Loaded with talent and expectations in the preseason, the No. 25 Seminoles squandered early-season opportunities against ranked foes and fizzled again late in the year to end any path back to the Bowl Championship Series. Thursday night's 18-14 win over Notre Dame in front of a sellout crowd at Florida's Citrus Bowl might not have been the national stage Florida State expected to be on this season, but how it won the game could be proof it is finally making progress.

When it comes to recruiting, USC Coach Lane Kiffin rarely misses a chance to subtly jab the Trojans' previous staff. So with the Trojans preparing for Saturday night's game at Notre Dame, Kiffin was again reminded of the prospects that got away after he left his post as USC's offensive coordinator and recruiting coordinator to become the Oakland Raiders' coach in January 2007. Notre Dame stars Michael Floyd and Manti Te'o both had interest in USC before signing with the Fighting Irish in 2008 and 2009, respectively.

Reporting from South Bend, Ind. -- Defensive back Nickell Robey is only 5 feet 8, but he played a huge role for the Trojans Saturday by neutralizing Michael Floyd , Notre Dame's star receiver, in a 31-17 USC victory. Floyd, 6-3 and 224 pounds, managed only four catches for 28 yards. Last season, when the Fighting Irish defeated USC at the Coliseum, he had 11 receptions for 86 yards and a touchdown. He entered the game with 53 catches and averaging 106.5 yards receiving per game.

Extra, extra, you could have read all about it: Dec. 10, 2009. Notre Dame had just hired Brian Kelly away from Cincinnati. A blogger on The Times' website (take one guess) instantly pontificated: "Kelly, who has led Cincinnati to a 12-0 record this year, was so obviously the right choice. Notre Dame, the 'it' program, for so many years, finally hired a coach with the 'it' factor. " Notre Dame whiffed on three pitches in 2004, when it lost former assistant Urban Meyer to Florida.

If, as he has said, last year's loss to Notre Dame at the Coliseum was Lane Kiffin's worst defeat as a head coach, Saturday's win at Notre Dame Stadium in South Bend, Ind., surely was among the sweetest. USC ran its record to 6-1 and ended Notre Dame's four-game winning streak with an impressive victory. "I'm proud of our guys, not having penalties and taking care of the football. That's what you've got to do," Kiffin said in a television interview after the game. "You better play defense and run the ball if you come on the road.

The final score of this column about fantastic weekend finishes was 17-14 until the Pac-12 office, two hours after deadline, revised it to 23-14. If only Notre Dame had the ability to redraft its ending at Michigan, or the Big East office could intervene on behalf of Louisville versus Florida International. Rice defeated Purdue, 24-22. The Big Ten reportedly wants that changed to Purdue having the 24. It usually takes three weeks in college football for all of the candy to spill out of the pinata — this year it took two. It was as if the pigskin gods said, "Stop writing about Miami, full cost of attendance and expansion," and take a deep whiff of what makes this sport so wonderful.

Notre Dame probably will be without receiver Michael Floyd for the rest of the regular season and quarterback Jimmy Clausen might not be 100% when the Fighting Irish play at Purdue on Saturday. Floyd underwent surgery Sunday for a broken left collarbone. Coach Charlie Weis said he hasn't been told how long Floyd will be out, but he expects to be without him the rest of the way. Floyd might be available for a bowl game. The sophomore went into the Michigan State game second in the nation in receiving yards at 160 a game.

Greg Robinson's career as Syracuse coach started poorly and never got better. When he was fired Sunday with two games left in a fourth straight dismal season, even he figured it was coming. "I don't think it really comes as a surprise to anyone. It doesn't come as a surprise to me," Robinson said. Robinson, who will coach the final two games of this season, is 9-36 overall and 3-25 in the Big East Conference in three-plus seasons. He had another year left on a contract that pays $1.
