  2. Pac-12 as NFL coaching pipeline

  3. Conference recruiting scorecard

    Ted Miller

    The SEC, as has become the pattern over the past decade, is ruling recruiting just as it has been ruling the national title hunt. On national signing day eve, it has five of the top 10 teams in the ESPN recruiting rankings -- it's pretty much the...

  4. Oregon ends Pac-12 season on uptick

    Ted Miller

    At least two people whispered the unthinkable to me after the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. "That," they said, "was a boring game." That, I realized after some pondering, is what happens when the superior team plays an outstanding game: 35-17 is what h...

  8. Larry 'Ca-ching' Scott is in the money

    Ted Miller

    Commissioner Larry Scott has opened up a new financial frontier for the Pac-12 -- most notably a $3 billion TV deal and a new network -- but he ain't doing too badly himself. USA Today published the 2010 salaries of college conference commissioner...

  9. Imitation is the highest form of flattery

    Ted Miller

    SEC and Big 12 folks have been tweaking the Big Ten and Pac-12's love of the Rose Bowl of late. That made me grin because the primary motivation for those tweaks was jealousy. Don't buy that assessment? Well, then what do you make of this: The SEC...

  10. Lunch links: Reyes is about to get paid

    Ted Miller

  13. Lunch links: Snub still irks Aaron Rodgers

    Ted Miller

    No! No! I want an Official Red Ryder Carbine-Action Two-Hundred-Shot Range Model Air Rifle! Rich Rodriguez and Todd Graham go way back, so the Arizona-ASU rivalry just got more interesting. The Wildcats are eyeballing some QBs. Paola Boivin's e...

    Ted Miller

    Just when we thought we were out of the expansion business, they pull us back in. Or does Missouri's wandering eye -- away from the Big 12 and toward the SEC -- mean anything for the Pac-12? It could but probably doesn't in the short-term. J...
