FROM THE LOCKER ROOM

THE WRITTEN WORD
"Let me make a suggestion, if you will, to all the coaches and Harrises who vote in the BCS polls: Watch the games. For once. Don't just read the scores as they crawl by on the bottom of the TV screen." -- Fort Worth (Texas) Star-Telegram columnist Gil LeBreton, on Texas Christian being passed by Boise State in the two Bowl Championship Series polls following the Horned Frogs' 40-35 victory over San Diego State
