Passing along a few stories from the Football Forum, as well as some other notes, while wondering what I'm doing inside on such a nice day:

--- As noted yesterday, Tyrone Willingham is attending the Football Forum in Dallas. Among the stories emanating from that event is this piece on the lack of black coaches in Division-I. Just six this year including Willingham.

--- Minority hiring, plus a possible playoff, were the hot topics Friday, according to the Dallas Morning News.

--- Here's a good breakdown of the Forum.

--- Here's one for the anti-Willingham contingent. Willingham was among those coaches at the Forum who said they are against a playoff. John Ryan of the San Jose Mercury News says cynics would note that there may be a good reason Willingham would be against a playoff.


--- Scott Wolf reports that USC will be ranked No. 2 in Lindy's pre-season poll.

--- Wolf also reports that the Pac-10 apparently turned down a chance for an eighth guaranteed bowl slot. Who wouldn't want to celebrate the holidays in Fresno?

--- It won't help them this year, but UCLA is getting a transfer from Colorado to help with O-line depth down the road. Guess Rick Neuheisel is allowed to take Colorado transfers now.

--- The Spokesman-Review has a good look at how Washington State ended up in so much trouble with the APR.

--- has a pretty-detailed look at OSU receiver Sammie Stroughter.

--- The Husky coaches tour hits Everett on Monday.

All for now.
