As with many of the arts, there is a protocol for doing the proper kegstand, a heels-over-head staple of tailgate parties and bowl games across the land. It should be attempted only by the fittest and most deviant among us. A helmet would be wise, though I've never seen one worn. Tried my first kegstand the other day at the Rose Bowl. It was a grand game, held as always in an arroyo in west Pasadena. Or as Wisconsin Badgers fans now refer to the place, Les Miserables. Imagine paying for three straight disappointments, the way they have.

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 . The sophomore alleged the coach twice confined him to a small, dark place after the player received a diagnosis of a concussion.

Coaching Notre Dame is still Urban Meyer's dream job. It just isn't the one he's taking. Meyer said Saturday the professional and financial opportunity presented to him by Florida was too good to pass up. 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."

Another Florida coach has Tennessee's number. Dallas Baker caught a 21-yard touchdown pass from Chris Leak that gave Florida the lead in the fourth quarter and the Gators held on to beat No. 13 Tennessee, 21-20, on Saturday in a Southeastern Conference game. Coach Urban Meyer's first trip to Neyland Stadium as Florida head coach was a success, and he made it two straight against the Vols.
