'Our whole goal is to get to 7-5,' TCU coach Gary Patterson said. 'I don't think there's been any quit in our team all year. There's a lot of character there.'

7-5 or bust!

The Big Ten will suspend the officiating crew that called the Purdue/Penn State game last Saturday and may fire a few, as well, according to Tom Dienhart. Meanwhile, there's still an official in the SEC named "Penn Wagers," and Bob Stoops still spends his Sundays perched in the woods opposite a certain Pac-10 referee's house with an Italian sniper rifle...waiting...
