The first method for estimating the intelligence of a ruler is to look at the men he has around him.
- Arizona looking everywhere for some defensive pressure, including the offense. Why defensive line coach Bill Kirelawich left West Virginia for Arizona.
- James Morrison becoming the jack of all offensive trades for the Sun Devils.
- Zach Maynard looking more mechanically sound in practice.
- With Shane Dillon redshirting, CU's quarterback competition is down to three. Speaking of QBs, Nick Hirschman is 100 percent.
- Rob Moseley breaks down Oregon's quarterback battle. Mark Helfrich also weighs in on the competition. Is Josh Huff ready to live up to his potential?
- Jordan Poyer out to leave his mark in final season. News and notes from Oregon State's practice.
- Stanford kicker Jordan Williamson smiling again after Fiesta Bowl misses. David Shaw says he has high expectations for receiver Ty Montgomery.
- UCLA feeling the heat practicing away from home. Weather conditions forced some players out of practice and into IVs.
- Silas Redd is a welcome addition to the Trojans. USC offense picking up where it left off last season.
- Redshirt, injury and mission will delay quarterback Chase Hansen until 2015. John White ready to carry Utah again.
- A video interview (and some thoughts from Steve Sarkisian) with Keith Price. Some notes from practice.
- Mike Leach not afraid to show off his disciplinarian side. Rickey Galvin is a wide receiver, at least for now.
