Pac-10 2008 Helmet Schedule

Just a little something I cooked up–I was inspired by the SEC version and decided the nations’s other great conference deserved a little visual representation. Click on the image below for the gigantic version, because the helmets are pretty. You can also download it as an Excel file by right-clicking on the link at the […]

Pac-10 Recruiting Maps, Part II

Read Part I (Northwest/Northern California) here. Going again through the super awesome MapGameday, we see how important it is for the Pac-10 to defend their home turf from intruders. Cal did a so-so job, Washington a superb job. How would the southern schools fare? Arizona Bob Stoops gets another year, and Arizona gets another subpar […]

Pac-10 Recruiting Maps, Part I

While I’m not so hot on breaking down recruiting by stars, recruiting by location always intrigues me. It gives you an idea of a program’s reach, how well the team is recruiting in the local area, how many incursions a team is making on certain programs. And more importantly, you can dirty up Google Maps. […]

Retrospection Evaluation–Arizona

For the fourth straight year, Mike Stoops stumbles out of the box–the Wildcats have started their 2004-07 campaigns a combined 6-23 (half of those wins coming against Northern Arizona). For the fourth straight year, Mike Stoops saves his hide with an absurd upset in the desert and crawls his way back to mediocre respectability (3-8, […]

You know what’s fun? Liveblogs, that’s what! Don’t really have much else to do this Saturday night. And I love me some bowl action. 5:15–UCLA is one of the fiercest, fastest defenses in the Pac-10…but it’s bowl season, so what do you expect? Miss one tackle, miss another, miss another on a kick return. 5:17–FUMMMBLE! […]

Bowling Time

I have no concrete plans for how much I’ll be covering bowls this year. Hell, I might not even watch Cal’s bowl game–not because I don’t want to, but I’ll probably be on a plane for the majority of the game.  I’m going to be traveling this holiday season to see old friends, and I […]

Pac-10 Coaching Carousel: Epilogue

Well, so much for letting Gregory go the easy way. Washington State University has selected Eastern Washington head coach Paul Wulff as WSU’s new head football coach, a source close to the selection process told The Associated Press late Monday. The WSU source spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to make […]

Pac-10 Coaching Carousel, Part II

So after covering the scenarios yesterday of those coaches who have passed on from the Pac-10 rites, I’ll continue looking through those coaches who will be under the eye for the next twelve months…and could very well be looking for new work in 2009. (The following images were made by a Bruins fan. Hence why […]

Pac-10 Coaching Carousel, Part I

The coaching fluctuation has been pretty consistent in the Pac-10: Two coaches out last year, two coaches out this year. Bill Doba is out. The Karl Dorrell Kool-Aid is now fresh out, and Bruins Nation has now lost the inspiration for 80% of their posts. It’d be funny if the Bruins really did go ahead […]

Cal to the Armed Forces Bowl

The BCS looks like it’s snubbed Arizona State, sending them to the Holiday Bowl to face Texas. East coast bias strikes again! Thanks again Tom Hansen, you worthless douchebag. Enjoy rubbing one out to your precious volleyball matches. That leaves the following projections. Holiday: ASU Sun: Oregon Emerald: Oregon State Las Vegas: UCLA Armed Forces: […]
