* There were several comic books references on what ESPN referred to as "Monster Saturday." In discussing Jones' huge first half, ESPN studio analyst Mark May said, "What happened to Landry Jones? Did he go into a phone booth?" NBC analyst Mike Mayock in discussing Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson, who had 502 yards in total offense against Notre Dame: "(Michigan coach) Rich Rodriquez has Batman. I don't know if he has Robin yet."
* On the play after a rainbow appeared and NBC play-by-play announcer Tom Hammond wondered "if it would mean a pot of gold for the Irish," Notre Dame quarterback Dayne Crist completed a 95-yard touchdown pass to Kyle Rudolph to take the lead. The Irish lost 28-24.
* FSN analyst Dave Lapham marveled at Kansas' improvement in upsetting Georgia Tech 28-25. "This is as good an adjustment of game-planning as I have seen from a coaching staff" in noting the Jayhawks' Improved running game.
* On ESPN's "College GameDay," Lee Corso received a game ball from TCU coach Gary Patterson for predicting Oregon State would beat his Horned Frogs by three touchdowns in the first week of the season. TCU won 30-21. Former Florida State coach Bobby Bowden was the guest picker, and, of course, predicted his former team would defeat OU while Corso and Kirk Herbstreit took the Sooners.
* In an interview on FSN at halftime of the Colorado-Cal game, Pac 10 commissioner Larry Scott boasted about what the additions of Colorado and Utah would mean the conference. However, the Buffaloes looked dismal in a 52-7 loss to Cal.
