Lodge notes


From George Schroeder of the Daily Oklahoman: "Just wanted to note a unique occurrence in today's college football. Covered USC-Arkansas (On Sept. 2). Both post-game locker rooms were open. I wonder if that might have been the only game this year between big name programs to feature two open locker rooms?"

Editor's note: USC-UCLA should also be one of those post-game situations where both teams will have open locker rooms. Can anyone think of another?
