  1. Chris Petersen jumps into Huskies-Ducks rivalry

    Ted Miller

    The introduction of Chris Petersen to the Washington-Oregon rivalry comes as quite a relief to the ink-stained wretches who write about college football. Redundancy and predictability are the sworn enemies of the scribbling class, and the Huskies-Duc...

  3. Oregon, UCLA still in playoff race

    Ted Miller

    If Oregon wins the rest of its games, it's going to be in the College Football Playoff. You can take that to the bank. If UCLA wins the rest of its games, it's going to be in the College Football Playoff. You can take that to the bank. So, really,...

  4. Arizona beats Oregon, rewrites Pac-12 script

    Ted Miller

    If Arizona's shocking 31-24 victory at No. 2 Oregon on Thursday is indicative of the sort of spectacle ahead on this epic weekend of college football, we all might want to invest in seat belts for our easy chairs. And perhaps don helmets ourselves. ...

  5. Oregon looking for redemption vs. Arizona

    Ted Miller

    Mark Helfrich's 15-2 record at Oregon is the best start of any Pac-12 coach since Pappy Waldorf went 16-1 beginning in 1947 at Cal, but that second loss was a doozy. While there was no shame in losing 26-20 at No. 6 Stanford last season, the 42-16 sh...

  6. 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...

  9. 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...

  10. Breaking protocol, we check out Week 2

    Ted Miller

    The 2014 Pac-12 season starts tonight, and that is unquestionably a righteous thing. The first week's slate of games? Well, it's not exactly going to awaken any echoes. Still, Confucius say he who casts a disrespectful glance at a season opener finds...

  11. Pac-12's perfect passing storm

    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 ...

  12. Pac-12: Issue is schedule, not perception

    Ted Miller

    The only thing the Pac-12 has to fear in the new era of the College Football Playoff is itself. Oh, and other conferences gaming the infant system. Whatever negative perceptions formerly were held about the Pac-12 -- finesse, pass-first, defense-o...

  14. Key questions for Pac-12 North coaches

    Ted Miller

    In advance of media day last week, we told you what questions Pac-12 coaches would be asked and what they should be asked. Well, that sort of tied us in to asking those "should" questions. So we did, at least some variety of the suggested inquiri...

  15. Questions, whimsy for Pac-12 media days

    Ted Miller

    Pac-12 media days start Wednesday at Paramount Studios in Hollywood, California, and your entire Pac-12 gang -- we're going by either #4pac or #pac4, we haven't decided yet -- will be there soaking in the evasive and cliched quotes while plumb...

  16. Pac-12 coaching hot-seat rankings

    Ted Miller

    While some like to gleefully dance around a raging bonfire in nothing but a loincloth with the heads of college football coaches on pitchforks, the Pac-12 blog is less demonstrative. And more empathetic. It believes there is no glee in seeing some...
