  2. Pac-12 lunch links: A college football draft?

    Ted Miller

    I do not, for one, think that the problem was that the band was down. I think that the problem may have been, that there was a Stonehenge monument on the stage that was in danger of being crushed by a dwarf. Alright? That tended to understate the hug...

  8. First quarter: Stanford 10, UCLA 0

    Ted Miller

    PASADENA, Calif. -- It's strange to write that Andrew Luck doesn't look sharp when Stanford leads 10-0 after the first quarter and when he has thrown a touchdown and rushed for 27 yards. But so far he's only been 5-of-11. The problem for UCLA is e...

  13. Pac-12 problem: Losing expansion?
