How all occasions do inform against me,
And spur my dull revenge! What is a man,
If his chief good and market of his time
Be but to sleep and feed?
- Unlike Hamlet, Arizona cornerback Devin Ross got his revenge without dilly-dallying.
- Jeff Metcalfe and Dennis Erickson agree: It's way too early -- and unfair -- to blame senior quarterback Danny Sullivan for Arizona State's offensive woes. The Oregon State game is big, and the O-line is banged up.
- With USC coming to town, California needs to move on -- quickly -- from the Oregon game. Still, the Trojans-Bears matchup is deflated.
- Anyone notice that not that many people are still doubting whether Chip Kelly can handle the Oregon job?
- Oregon State needs to heal itself at Arizona State.
- Stanford-UCLA, not Cal-USC, is the Bay Area game of the week.
- UCLA is undefeated but still doubted. It should be a physical game in the trenches.
- USC is banged up in lots of places, including the secondary, but Matt Barkley is feeling better.
- What went wrong for Washington vs. Stanford? Some specific problems described here.
- More on Washington State's QB change. First look at the matchup with Oregon.
- Ken Goe is also slapping his forehead over the dubious voting in the coaches and Harris polls, which determine the BCS standings.
