Pac-10 lunch links: Where will Blount fit in?

Posted by ESPN.com's Ted Miller

Thou still unravish'd bride of quietness,

Thou foster-child of silence and slow time,

Sylvan historian, who canst thus express

A flowery tale more sweetly than our rhyme.

  • Arizona is worried about the Wild Bear.

  • Will freshman quarterback Brock Osweiler bring Arizona State fans change they can believe in?

  • California running back Jahvid Best makes an appearance on campus.

  • It's unclear how LeGarrette Blount will fit in for Oregon, but he will fit in somehow.

  • Oregon State is better in large part because its O-line is better, but that's not a surprise because Mike Cavanaugh is a heck of a coach.

  • Nice story here recalling Stanford's upset of USC in 2007.

  • UCLA is being cautious with quarterback Kevin Prince, who suffered a concussion against Washington. Pullman might be a little nippy for the Bruins.

  • USC offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates says blame him, not quarterback Matt Barkley. The Trojans' defense has struggled. Tackle Jurrell Casey has not.

  • Receiver Jermaine Kearse has emerged for Washington.

  • The revolving door at quarterback -- it appears that freshman Jeff Tuel won't play against UCLA because of a knee injury -- makes it hard for Washington State to refine its passing attack.

  • Chris Dufresne looks at how the BCS bowl picks might go, and he thinks USC could end up in the Sugar opposite Alabama. Laissez le bon temps rouler!
