    Yes. That is most of the short list.

    Also add Steve Spurrier to South Carolina.

    Back to rivalry talk- what PAC12 message boards do you like? I've struggled to find any that I like checking out. Cal has an absolutely putrid one, and I don't like the generic Rivals type boards. CU has one with a lot of soul and fan identity, but those guys are so bad that they don't have much to talk about.

    Does this surprise anyone? When everyone talked about how he was the best recruiter in the PAC-12, did anyone really believe it was because he knew better jokes, or had that special gleam in his eye? Why do you think SEC teams have better "recruiters" than other conferences? Is their charming southern drawl?

    Nope.

    It's the cash that gets left in the seat cushions when they leave. To believe otherwise is just naive.

    It's nice to be able to tease my UCLA fan friends that they are playing catch-up with us:

    They should also be teased about that announcement. Talk about no details

    I didn't even read the story, but I thought of Sancho when I saw the headline:

    Good stuff. Thanks. I recommend the idea to all, though there's no need for the language.

    That's the language that comes to mind when I think of Sancho.

    But I also agree with the overall tone of the article..

    Some drama from USC's Josh Shaw. Looks like he didn't sprain his ankles while heroically saving his nephew.

    Coming off of this, another player quits the team and calls Sark a racist. Sark definitely has some cleaning up to do with that program. It might be a great year to have them at home...let's hope for our sake it is!

    Well, because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

    Great to see WSU fumble the game away to Rutgers last night.

    Halliday looked great, though. The offense was crisp, and his passes were right on the money. I'm happy to see Wilson back, and I think Thompson looks alright as a backup, but what I wouldn't give for someone with that kind of accuracy.

    Cox was 3-3...

    And, if I remember right, one of those was rolling right (and he's left handed).

    40-56 passing? Gulp.

    BOO-YA!

    Hopefully Travis' scales up and translates to the FBS.

    Really, though, Halliday looked good to me. I didn't see his early pick - just his 2nd half domination.

    I also like that TW had over 250 yards in just 18 attempts, versus 500+ in 60 attempts.

    I am not knocking Halliday, I think he is a good qb, but i think his offense males him look better than he is. When you talk qb accuracy, ability, pro potential, etc. Manning is significantly better than Halliday.

    Are you talking about Peyton, Eli, or Connor? If Connor, I hope when he transfers that he doesn't choose a Pac-12 school.

    It's apples and oranges to compare Wilson vs ISU to Halliday vs Rutgers. I'm just saying his 2nd half performance was good, and I think WSU is a team for us to worry about.

    Right now, any team that knows how to throw the ball is a team to worry about

    Colin Cowherd, to whom I never listen unless I happen to turn on the car radio when he's on, made an interesting point today. It was something like "The game has changed," he says, because teams know they need a good QB who can throw to a field full of receivers and who can run 85 plays a game in a no-huddle. "The 250-lb linebacker is a thing of the past; he'd better be 230-35 and be fast." I can see that we are trying to do something like that on offense. I too wonder how we'll do against Hundley, Mariota, Halliday and Mannion. Those games may not be a lot of fun.

    And this is why Stanford, Wisconsin, and Michigan State are winning games now. Using a power run offense to take advantage of the spread defenses.

    Good point. Makes me wonder: How does a team position itself to defend both the Oregon-style and Stanford-style offense?

    Alabama does it really well. All you need is 30-40 five-star athletes on your defense.

    The answer was staring me in the face. I'm so embarrassed.

    UCLA's D looks good, their offense a little sluggish to start.

    Mora was yelling at the UVA ball boy, who just laughed at him and walked away.

    Well, because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

    Ucla's D now has 3 first half touchdowns. Their offense, zero.

    They certainly look beatable...maybe not by us, but that ASU game before they get us could be interesting and impact our game against them.

    So far Arizona looks very good (okay, I didn't watch their game but they manhandled an FBS opponent that played in a bowl last year with a new QB), Cal is looking good while the arrow seems to be pointing down for Wazzu, CU and UCLA. Stanford, Utah and ASU have all just done what they were supposed to against FCS teams so you can't really pass judgment on any of them. I am looking forward to USC-Fresno St later.
