We missed the UFL draft on June 3, but considering nine former Pac-10 players were selected, we thought we'd provide an update.

Seems that Sacramento is going to be Pac-10 rich.

OL Tavita Thompason, Oregon State, Sacramento (2)
CB Tim Clark, Oregon State, Sacramento (3)
DE Udeme Udofia, Stanford, Sacramento (4)

Pac-10 lunch links: Neuheisel trying to motivate wounded UCLA

I don't know about you, but when unranked West Virginia scored 31 unanswered points last night and rolled up 445 yards against a SUPER-VICIOUS SEC DEFENSE, I wondered if our SEC friends got an idea of why playing any BCS team on the road isn't so easy.

For all of the discussion about OSU's offensive line, and how much the insertion of prodigal tackle Tavita Thompson (if he moves right into the starting lineup) will impact continuity in the ASU game, the more pressing issue this week might be starting RG Gregg Peat's sore shoulder, which kept him out of practice. ... the depth chart shows Jeremy Perry as Peat's backup. That is wishful thinking, with Perry not even around because of his health and some personal issues. ... OSU has not made an official announcement, but we wouldn't be surprised if JP is done.

Pac-10 lunch links: Time to end the Longshore-Riley debate

These links have no fumbling issues.

  • Arizona RB Nic Grigsby is trying to solve his fumbling issues so he can hold onto his starting job.
  • Arizona State can't run the football and here's a big reason why the passing game hasn't compensated.
  • Two California players have been arrested on suspicion of robbery. Get a feeling that won't make things easier for Jeff Tedford this week, though it might distract from the endless question about the quarterback situation. This, however, is a fairly compelling argument that it's time to commit to Kevin Riley as the starter over Nate Longshore.
  • Oregon can run; Arizona State can't. That's good for the Ducks, bad for the Sun Devils.
  • Oregon State's offensive line takes a hit... a good one: Tavita Thompson returns.
  • UCLA running back Kahlil Bell is playing through pain, but the Bruins offensive and defensive lines are just banged up. Cal center Alex Mack vs. UCLA defensive tackle Brigham Harwell is an intriguing matchup.
  • It's not always easy dealing with parents for USC coach Pete Carroll.
  • Are Notre Dame fans happy that Tyrone Willingham has failed at Washington? Short answer: Yes.
  • And here's a great look at Football Futile States.

The Pac-10 visits Stuart Smalley: "We deserve good things. We are entitled to our share of happiness. We refuse to beat ourselves up. We are an attractive conference. We are fun to watch. Because we're good enough, we're smart enough, and, doggonit, people like us!"
