What Jefferson was saying was, Hey! You know, we left this England place 'cause it was bogus; so if we don't get some cool rules ourselves -- pronto -- we'll just be bogus too! Get it?
- Arizona has a new kicker with a familiar name.
- Arizona State has lost defensive end Junior Onyeali, most likely for the season, to a knee injury.
- California's freshman running back Brendan Bigelow expects to hear boos at Washington. Notes from practice.
- Colorado coach Jon Embree wants to end the slow starts.
- Oregon defensive end Dion Jordan hopes being back in his home state helps him get some sacks. LaMichael James wants to be a better receiver and to race reporters. (Beware, LaMike. As Usain Bolt once said, "I'd trade my sprinting past for the Pac-12 blog's sprinting future.")
- There's a 30 percent chance that Oregon State running back Malcolm Agnew will play against UCLA. The quarterback job now belongs to Sean Mannion.
- Who's going to step in for Stanford linebacker Shayne Skov? These guys. Coach David Shaw is stepping out of Jim Harbaugh's shadow.
- To redshirt or not to redshirt quarterback Brett Hundley, that is a UCLA question. The Bruins' D needs to play faster.
- The last time USC quarterback Matt Barkley played in Sun Devil Stadium, he was pretty lousy.
- A 10-step plan for Utah to go to the Rose Bowl. First rule: You do not talk about Rose Bowl. Second rule: You do not talk about Rose Bowl.
- Washington D-coordinator Nick Holt promises improvement for the Huskies defense. Bud Withers gets the low-down on the officiating at Nebraska.
- A report from Washington State practice.
- Did the Pac-12 make a mistake by not expanding? Here's a vote for yes.
