Welcome to the Fallout: Charlie Weis gets tough, Da'Rick Rogers and Derek Dooley, and more.

(Welcome to the Fallout is the SWRT off-season weekend wrap-up of college football related news.)

No More Mr. Nice Guy. 
Kansas players are learning very quickly that new head football coach Charlie Weis is more of a disciplinarian than former coach Turner Gill.  (The Chicago Tribune)

More fuel to the fire.
Wide receiver Da'Rick Roger's nebulous future with the Tennessee Volunteers is adding making Vols' HC Derek Dooley's Hot Seat talk just a little bit hotter. (The Tennessean)

No Price too High.
Michigan will be raising season ticket prices to $390 for the six home games in the Big House, (The Detroit Free Press)

Dawg Gone.
Georgia defensive lineman Derrick Lott is transferring due to lack of playing time. (The Atlanta Journal-Constitution)

Getting the full-time gig.
Michigan State wide receiver Tony Lippett is happy that he won't be splitting time on the offense and defense in 2012. (The Lansing State Journal)

Iowa RB out for year.

Kentucky-Louisville Final Four showdown is "going to be bigger than the Super Bowl."
No. (ESPN)

Don't confuse me with the facts.
Steve Eubanks compares Alabama HC Nick Saban's recent contract extension and pay raise to the state of Alabama's financial struggles. Never mind the fact that the money for Saban's contract comes from the Alabama football programs profits (which is successful in no small part due to Saban), and not from the state of Alabama's treasury. But don't let small things like facts spoil a poorly written article, right, Steve. (FOX Sports Tennessee)
