October, 8, 2010

- Wonderful column here from Greg Hansen on former Arizona coach Dick Tomey, but I bet it was easy for him because he probably knows Tomey -- one of the truly good guys in coaching -- better than anyone in the media. Patience pays off for a Wildcats safety.
- Arizona State is set at punter. Dear Vontaze Burfict: Character counts.
- California doesn't want to start 0-2 in Pac-10 play (again). It will help that frosh wideout Keenan Allen is feeling much better.
- Oregon and Washington State: The revolution -- er, game -- will be televised. A Ducks practice report.
- Markus Wheaton is giving Oregon State's offense another dangerous weapon. Couple of minor court issues for Beavers players.
- Stanford wants to bounce back with a new deal against USC.
- UCLA and California is a bitter song. Have the Bruins' weaknesses on defense been exposed? Quarterback Kevin Prince is ready to play.
- Allen Bradford will start at tailback for USC, but Dillon Baxter is no longer in the doghouse.
- This Washington practice report also includes some comments on the Pac-10 ADs meetings. The Huskies' defense is a work in progress.
- Washington State may start two freshmen at linebacker against Oregon. Gulp.
