7. I don’t know why Stanford’s Jim Harbaugh decided to run it up on USC. I know that USC’s Pete Carroll has bullied some teams in the Pac 10 through the years, and we know what they say about payback. But Harbaugh is building a good program at Stanford.

Well that didn't take long. I wonder how Darren Collison feels about this.
Interesting article, but we've been talking about this for how long.. 2 years? We backed up with lots of data and analysis. Glad that the rest of the country is catching up... LOL Arizona coach Mike Stoops took a question about the conference's competitiveness and turned it into a plea for the league to cut back to eight games, something the league's coaches discussed last spring. "Nine conference games doesn't do anybody any favors,'' Stoops said. "When you're playing an extra conference game, just do the math — half the teams are going to have another loss.''
