A look at the before-and-after pictures of Brad Culpepper -- a 280-pound NFL defensive lineman in one, a 205-pound lawyer in the other -- leads to a perfectly logical assumption: He had to be using steroids, right?

Texas Tech fired Mike Leach on Wednesday after the coach took the school to court to try to overturn his suspension for alleged mistreatment of an injured player. "I'm very sad to say there's only one person to blame for this and it's Mike Leach," Texas Tech Chancellor Kent Hance told the Associated Press. Jerry Turner , vice chairman of the university system's board of regents, said "other things" came to light during an investigation of Leach's treatment of receiver Adam James .

Rick Neuheisel was head coach at Colorado, Washington and UCLA, so the former Bruins quarterback knows his way around the Pac-12 Conference. He also plays the guitar, and the Pac-12 Networks analyst is in the habit of penning and performing college-football related songs. Neuheisel's latest composition is a tribute to USC interim Coach Ed Orgeron, who has guided the Trojans to five wins in six games. Last Saturday, the Trojans upset Stanford at the Coliseum. "A tribute to what has taken place there," Neuheisel said during the Pac-12 Networks Football Podcast.

And by the time Notre Dame called, Meyer already knew he was heading for the Swamp, not the Golden Dome. "This was a family decision that was made prior to the other situation," Meyer said Saturday after the fifth-ranked Utes practiced.

Utah quarterback Alex Smith, who was a Heisman Trophy finalist and already has earned his degree, is strongly considering declaring for the NFL draft instead of returning for his senior season. He is awaiting information from the NFL about where he might go in the draft, and also has been conferring with his uncle, Michigan State Coach John L. Smith. "It's pretty tough any time to turn down a first-round contract," said Smith, adding he has "heard a lot of different things."
