- Arizona State's James Brooks is ready to chase quarterbacks. Speaking of quarterbacks: The Sun Devils' decision figures to come soon, and Steven Threet appears to be making a move.

- Split end and linebacker remain concerns for Oregon State. Another look at some issues.
- Ole Man McGillicuddy is fighting for the lone void on Stanford's offensive line.
- Five observations from UCLA's scrimmage.
- Marc Tyler has decided to stay at USC, and he may still get a chance to shine. There may be an opportunity at tailback.
- Now that Washington is headed back to respectability, Bob Condotta takes a look at why it might have fallen in the first place. And it's good news that defensive end Everrette Thompson apparently will be ready for the opener with BYU.
- Youngsters will provide Washington State with depth at receiver.
- A Q&A with Pac-10 commissioner Larry Scott.
