Nebraska (4-6)
In the weekly Big 12 teleconference on Monday, the first question for Huskers coach Bill Callahan was, "At this point, is there any reason to believe you're going to be back at Nebraska next year?" Callahan paused -- for a painfully long time -- before replying, "Yes, the thing I would say to that, I'm going to let the powers that be make those decisions. All I'm going to do is prepare our team for Kansas State and do the best I can. I think that's all any coach can do, is do the best he can with the situation he's in. That's what we're trying to do." According to the Lincoln Journal Star, Callahan has not yet been asked to resign; such a decision is expected to come at the end of the season. Callahan later said that "those are issues that I would have to defer right now to the higher-ups."

Notre Dame (1-8)
A nice stat from Sunday's Chicago Tribune: Through his first 34 games at Notre Dame, head coach Charlie Weis is 20-14. In Tyrone Willingham's first 34 games with the Irish, he was 21-13. Willingham was fired after three years ... whereas Weis signed a 10-year extension seven games into his tenure. Not that he's the least bit defensive about it. "I'm going to be here for a long time," Weis told the Tribune. "I'm going to be judged by what happens when I leave. Let's see where I am when I walk out the door."
