Lunch links: Bennett not ready to transfer
August, 29, 2012

"What's new?" is an interesting and broadening eternal question, but one which, if pursued exclusively, results only in an endless parade of trivia and fashion, the silt of tomorrow. I would like, instead, to be concerned with the question "What is best?," a question which cuts deeply rather than broadly, a question whose answers tend to move the silt downstream.
- Arizona's coaching staff had humble beginnings. Safety Adam Hall is back with the Wildcats.
- Might Arizona State coach Todd Graham change the Phoenix market place?
- California's renovated stadium looks great, but LB Cecil Whiteside isn't going to play in it this year. The Bears say they are ready for Nevada's pistol offense.
- While Colorado QB Jordan Webb just transferred from Kansas, he will have plenty of responsibility at the line of scrimmage.
- Oregon backup QB Bryan Bennett has decided not to transfer at this point.
- Oregon State will be down a receiver and starting safety in the opener.
- Stanford QB Josh Nunes seems like a good fit, post-Andrew Luck.
- UCLA is hoping its new offense is more consistent than its old one.
- Max Wittek will back up Mat Barkley at USC.
- Utah QB Jordan Wynn looks to regain his early-career magic.
- Jerry Brewer believes Washington is on the right track.
- Washington State OT John Fullington is full of hope for the Cougs season.
