NEWSMAKERS » Who’s making headlines this week

Mark Cuban

Never guessed we’d hear his name so many times in the same sentence with Martha Stewart. The good news for Cuban: He’s a lot richer.

Greg Robinson

In four seasons at Syracuse his teams have gone 9-36 while he made $1.1 million a year. The school finally canned him Sunday.

Barack Obama

He’s still talking about a college football playoff. The election’s over, so Obama must be at least somewhat serious about ditching the BCS, right?

Jimmie Johnson

Wrapped up his third consecutive NASCAR title with a 15th-place finish. Most exciting development: It gave folks a reason to talk about Cale Yarborough.

Kerry Collins

The MVP talk has started - and why wouldn’t it? In the past two weeks, he has 519 passing yards and five touchdowns. His Titans remain unbeaten.


1. Washington. The Huskies are 0-10 and have lost 12 straight dating to last season.

2. Washington State. One more win than the Huskies, but a worse offense and defense. Should make for a great game this weekend.

3. Southern Methodist. Mustangs have to wait a week before taking their nine-game losing streak into double digits.

4. San Diego State. Chuck Long has led the Aztecs to the first 10-loss season in school history.

5. Western Kentucky. Could have been North Texas … if the Mean Green hadn’t scored 51 points in a win against the Hilltoppers.
