These links make great gifts.
- Oregon State is hurting at running back with Jacquizz Rodgers' shoulder still an issue and No. 3 running back Jeremy Francis leaving the team. Good story on the Rodgers brothers from the Houston Chronicle.
- Two Arizona players are coming home for the Las Vegas Bowl. It's been a long time coming for the Wildcats -- a lot has changed in the decade since they last played in a bowl game. Don't Hassel the Hoff... guess who's singing the National Anthem?
- Arizona State walks away from 2008 with the blues.
- There will be open competition this spring for the starting quarterback job at California -- the job won't automatically be Kevin Riley's.
- Rocky Seto is staying at USC after turning down the defensive coordinator job at Washington.
- Steve Sarkisian is cleaning house at Washington. That's a good thing. Sark met with Seattle reporters and gave them the low-down on where things presently stand.
- An early-bird 2009 rankings has USC No. 5 and California 20th. And that's it for the Pac-10. Got a fresh $1 bill that says the Pac-10 will do much better than that.
- Bowl season is a great time to consider academics... which bowl teams are the winners and losers (hello, Oregon)?
