  1. Heisman shaft for Pac-12

    Ted Miller

    The hits keep coming for the Pac-12. First, the nation's deepest and most ambitious conference in terms of scheduling gets just one BCS bowl team. Then it doesn't have a Heisman Trophy finalist, even with two candidates who are superior to the player...

  2. Perceptions of BCS conferences real or imagined -- college footba...

  4. Even without Kelly, Oregon aims for No. 1

    Ted Miller

    On Jan. 4, Oregon, fresh off its second consecutive BCS bowl victory, was at an all-time high. Then, while riding that wave of emotion, it watched Chip Kelly transformed into Hamlet -- "To go or not to go, that is the question..." Kelly was certai...

  5. The most interesting man in college football

    Ted Miller

    SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- There is a school of thought, now apparently subscribed to by a handful of desperate NFL teams, that if that uber-suave, hirsute gentleman from those wildly entertaining Dos Equis beer commercials revealed his true identity, he w...

  6. Lots of intrigue for 116th Civil War

    Ted Miller

    The 2012 Civil War between Oregon and Oregon State doesn't match the 2000 game, when both teams were ranked in the top 10 for the first time in the rivalry's history, or the 2009 game, when the winner-take-all stakes were a Pac-10 title and a Rose Bo...

  7. Consistency separates Oregon from Pac-12

    Ted Miller

    Alabama was up 38-7 over Mississippi State, but coach Nick Saban -- veins bulging, spittle flying and words pummeling -- was giving a backup player his own personal Crimson Tide. I had three thoughts: 1. That is beautiful; 2. Chip Kelly would appr...

  11. Re-ranking the 2008 recruiting classes

    Ted Miller

    We can all agree that Oregon and Stanford have done pretty well the past two seasons, yes? Both went 1-1 in BCS bowls, which is pretty darn good. Yet neither was ranked in the 2008 recruiting rankings top 25, upon which the 2010 and 2011 seasons h...

  12. Pac-12 second-half preview

    Ted Miller

    There were some nice moments in the first half of the Pac-12 season, but it was more about injuries and a poor nonconference showing. Here's hoping that the second half is chocked full of great games and great performances and the end result is na...

    Ted Miller

    This is about Cliff Harris and his bright idea to drive 118 mph at 4:30 a.m. last Sunday. But first, two stories. Went to my annual doctor's checkup a couple of weeks back. The nurse and I were looking at a cool new Mustang through the window whil...
