  1. Greatest season in Pac-12 history? If Oregon wins it all

    Ted Miller

    If Oregon wins the inaugural College Football Playoff, the Pac-12 will cap the greatest season in its history, including iterations as the Pac-8 and Pac-10. Perhaps we should toss an "arguably" in there, particularly if the conference's seven other b...

  2. Oregon eyeballs playoff, first national title

    Ted Miller

    SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Oregon had a Stanford problem. And then it didn't. It had an Arizona problem. And now it doesn't after stomping the Wildcats 51-13 in the Pac-12 championship game. The Oregon program had a Heisman Trophy problem, but that li...

  3. Three times a championship for Arizona?

    Ted Miller

    Oregon's shocking 42-16 loss at Arizona in 2013 was explained away by the usual suspects of excuses. Oregon was flat after losing to Stanford two weeks before. The planets curiously aligned and Arizona played a perfect game. All the bounces went towa...

  4. Plenty of grumpy teams in Pac-12

    Ted Miller

    It's been another banner year for the Pac-12, one that might even get better if the conference wins its first national title since 2004. Five teams are ranked, eight are bowl-eligible and seven won eight or more regular-season games. Yet there's a...

  5. Jesus, girls, Marcus Mariota and Pac-12 South

    Ted Miller

    A great mystery has been lost amid the jocularity surrounding celebrity journalist and sixth-grader Charlie Pape's quizzing Oregon coach Mark Helfrich about the future of Ducks quarterback Marcus Mariota. While we can all appreciate that top topics o...

  6. Cody Kessler quietly becomes star QB

    Ted Miller

    LOS ANGELES -- Since the turn of the millennium, there has been no more celebrated spot in college football than quarterback at USC. It's produced two Heisman Trophy winners and household names pretty much every year, even after the NCAA kicked its j...

  7. Oregon, Arizona State make their moves

    Ted Miller

    And just like that, we have Pac-12 clarity. Or potential clarity, which some fussbudgets might insist is nothing like clarity. After impressively exorcising its Stanford demons a day after All Hallows' Eve, Oregon owns a decisive lead in the Pac-1...

  8. Stanford-Oregon ramifications are still significant in playoff ch...

    Ted Miller

    The apparent diminished status of Stanford 's visit Saturday to Oregon, the Pac-12's game of the year the previous four seasons, fits in with 2014's chaotic profile, though you could make a case that 2013 demonstrated little is truly won in early Nov...

  11. Week 2 statements can be deceiving

    Ted Miller

    Each college football season is a whodunit. Or, more accurately, it's a "who-will-do-it." It contains plot twists and turns, false leads and subtle clues about how things will play out. It's basically a 14-chapter potboiler, so if we seemed to have a...

  12. Oregon-Michigan State laden with meaning

    Ted Miller

    There will be no "real" Rose Bowl on Jan. 1, 2015. The "real" Rose Bowl, whose purity previously had been diluted by the BCS, is a casualty of the College Football Playoff this season. While that will make many of us old fogies wince, the only constr...

    Ted Miller

    A week from now, there's certain to be at least some fretful handwringing, but for at least three more days, every Pac-12 team remains undefeated, flushed with hope and imaging an entitled grabbing all of its 2014 goals. While the FBS season offic...

    Ted Miller

    Athletes often refuse to play along with media storylines, or they simply are oblivious to them. That's not the case with the Pac-12's stellar 2014 crop of quarterbacks. They get it. They know they are good and you are interested. They are perfectly ...

    Over the past five or so years, the Power Five conferences started playing expansion roulette. Although the ultimate wisdom of these moves can be measured only over the long term, the short-term results can be judged. That judgment? Things worked ...

  16. Greatest season in USC history?

    Ted Miller

    USC Trojans football has been defined by great teams and great individual seasons for decades. How about seven Heisman Trophy winners, starting with Mike Garrett in 1965 and finishing with Reggie Bush in 2005 -- though there is, of course, an asteris...
