Way to aim high Dan


If UCLA athletic director Dan Guerrero had to stress one thing to the selection committee, it'd be this – don't forget about seeds 5-12. The committee seeds all 12 playoff bowl participants: Four semifinalists and eight teams in the host bowls. "The implications of 5 and down the line are crucial," Guerrero said. "The whole world will be focused on 1-4."

Rick Reilly speaks his mind.


There has not been an NCAA men's basketball championship team in the last 20 years that could come within 30 points of the John Wooden championship UCLA teams. Those were men. These are babies.

Put the Brakes on USC


1. Let me stipulate that Steve Sarkisian is a talented coach who didn’t get sufficient credit for the resurrection of Washington football. But the expectations that Sark will pick up USC and deposit it into the top 10 are shortsighted. The coach might be new, but the Trojans are still operating under NCAA scholarship reductions. USC still has fewer players than the other contenders, and more of the Trojans are young and inexperienced. A team with one quarterback who has taken a college snap (sophomore Cody Kessler) is headed for the playoffs? USC’s margin of error remains too thin.

If you hire TIARA, this won't be a problem

Barking Carnival w a great perspective on Texas/Mora


He's at exactly the right job. Great recruiter, has embraced the college environment, good player relations, and has restored pride to the Bruins in a medium-expectation environment. Sky high expectations, relentless pressure, and the constant criticism at Texas might reveal the NFL Jim Mora of Atlanta and Seattle who was an embarrassingly petulant weenie. I'm happy for the guy. I hope he has the good sense to stay in a sweet spot.

Seattle Times Columnist Exposes Mediocre Sark (aka "Seven Win Steve")


Five years ago, if Washington had hired the best assistant from the staff of, say, Texas, and he’d gone 24-21 in league games at the UW, does he get a sniff from the Trojans? Or think about it like this: In the Apple Cup the other day, Washington State was at its own 28 with 5½ minutes left, down 20-17. If it had driven the length of the field, scored and won the game, and the Huskies go 4-5 in the league, can USC hire Sarkisian? If it can, then John McKay, John Wayne and Howard Jones just flinched, in unison, in their graves.

John Wilner highlights tough choice for Haden and Southern Cal

Steve Lavin problem of the century: USC athletic director Pat Haden.

I saw Haden in the Coliseum tunnel after the game and his elation was unmistakable, but the pressure to make Orgeron the permanent coach is mounting by the win. John Wilner at College Hotline
