    It's painfully obvious we should be in this game.

    Yeah, it's too bad that there isn't a playoff already. I'm not sure if we beat Alabama, but it would be a much better game than what ND provided.

    We better get our ***** moving on the recruiting trail it's not looking very promising at the moment. ND got soundly spanked by AL and I believe it was the best thing to happen. ND needed to be taught a lesson,and so do the idiot voters who continue to put the wrong teams in the national championship game. I'm happy it ended that way even though I live in Bama land and will have to hear about it for another year.
    It certainly will not change any time soon. Bama will dominate as long as Saban is their coach. For the most part I don't see any team that will be able to challenge them in the forseeable future. This year really was our year it was set up perfect for us to play either KS, Bama, or ND. I honestly believe we could handle Bama for the simple fact that Saban is afraid of the spread and at every opportunity demeans it as a joke and a detriment to the game itself. We do not have the depth in the future to handle Bama's D so its alittle depressing to think what could have been. I'm not giving up I do believe we still have a chance to get to the title game, I just think we will get our ***** handed to us with out the appropriate depth to handle Bama.

    Tanner McEvoy is visiting this weekend. He's a JUCO QB, but he has huge upside. This is likely a move to ensure our depth at the position for when Bennett transfers. He may stick around, but if he does I see him moving positions.

    In the coming weeks, players like Kylie Fitts, Austin Hooper, Torrodney Prevot, Alec James, Juwaan Williams, Nico Falah and a few others are all guys that are visiting or could choose Oregon. Oregon has a chance to close strong in recruiting like they always do. We aren't necessarily leading for most of these players, but I won't doubt our coaching staff's ability to close strong.

    Forgot to mention Cameron Hunt and Myles Jack will also be visiting soon. Thomas Oser is also a player Oregon is going after.

    Anthony Wallace is transferring. It's a bummer because of our LB depth, but it isn't that surprising. Hopefully Oregon closes strong in their LB recruiting efforts.

    Bryan Bennett is staying at Oregon. The interesting part of the news is that Bennett will more than likely be switching to defense. I expect that he would become a safety, and he could be a damn good one if he can make the transition quickly.

    I love the fact that Bennett doesn't want to transfer sounds like he loves Oregon and doesn't mind doing whatever he can to help the team. Not sure about him playing safety but maybe if he can add some muscle mass and be a dominant defender out there. Losing Wallace hurts and just adds another spot that needs to be filled. I don't really want us to sign that JC qb I heard if we give him a schollie then we would lose out on a 4 start wide out who already has a schollie offer from our track team Devon Allen I believe is his name.

    Bennett will definitely need to work hard, but you have to love his athleticism. If he puts it all together, he could be a pretty good safety. I agree that the main transition will be adding muscle, and getting used to the physicality of the position change.


    We already have a lot of young receivers, so I actually understand wanting a QB more than Allen. We all know that QB injuries can come quickly in Chip's offense, and McEvoy has considerable upside. If Carrington de-commits, then that could open the door for Allen though. I'd much rather have Carrington though.


    By the way, Hooper committed to Stanford. It's a bummer, but I actually think he wanted to play tight end, so it may not be a killer loss on the trail.

    Pac-12 bold predictions for 2013

    As all of you know, the Pac-12 blog -- Kevin and myself -- is bold. Not bold like, "Hey, this is a bold cabernet!" but bold like a guy willing to jump into a volcano to save his remote control.

    There is no fear with the Pac-12 blog. None. Other than cockroaches. We don't like those. And I personally found "The Ring" pretty unsettling, but it's not as if I woke up with nightmares for a month or anything ("Don't you understand, Rachel... she never sleeps!").

    The point is you folks out there know we'd storm the beaches at Normandy in Speedos to protect your freedoms.

    Bold.

    So, without further delay, we present BOLD PREDICTIONS for 2013.

    The Pac-12 will dethrone the SEC and win the final BCS national title: The SEC's streak of seven national titles will come to an end in an appropriate place: the Rose Bowl. But who will do the honors, ruining Alabama and Nick Saban's hopes for a three-peat?

    That team will be Oregon: The Ducks have a lot of nice pieces coming back in 2013 -- 15 position players -- but the key one will be Heisman Trophy-winning QB Marcus Mariota.

    Yes, that's Heisman Trophy-winning QB Marcus Mariota: Mariota will be in New York with USC receiver Marqise Lee and Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel, but it will be the Hurling Honolulan walking away with the bronze statue this time.

    No Pac-12 coach will be fired in 2013: Considering there's only one coach truly on the hot seat, what we're really saying is...

    Lane Kiffin and USC will post a bounce-back season: We expect the Trojans to win 10 games -- that's with a highly favorable 13-game schedule, by the way -- and return to the national rankings. Although the Trojans won't return to dominance, they will play better all-around football in 2013, and it will be enough to quiet Kiffin's critics -- at least enough for him to return in 2014. We don't, however, expect USC to win the South Division.

    Oregon will play Arizona State in Pac-12 title game: The Sun Devils will emerge from a pack that includes the Trojans and UCLA to win the South.

    Stanford won't win the North, but it will play in a BCS bowl game. Again: The Cardinal will lose only to Oregon and finish ranked in the top five.

    The Pac-12 will finish 2013 with six teams in the Top 25: That will be six of this seven: Oregon, Stanford, Washington, Arizona State, UCLA, USC and Oregon State.

    The Washington renaissance will arrive: The Huskies will finish 9-3 in 2013, opening the new Husky Stadium in style.

    Colorado will win four games in Year 1 under Mike MacIntyre: And Buffs fans will be reasonably encouraged.

    Washington State will go 5-7 in Year 2 under Mike Leach: And Cougs fans will be reasonably encouraged, particularly when the offense starts to look Leachian.

    The sledding will be rough in Sonny Dykes' first season at California: The Bears don't have great talent coming back, but the schedule is the biggest problem. By my guess, Dykes will play eight ranked teams in his first season, including a strong Big Ten duo at home the first and third weekends of the season (Northwestern and Ohio State).

    Arizona's offensive numbers will make everyone realize how good Matt Scott was: Arizona averaged 37 points and 522 yards per game last year because of QB Matt Scott, who ranked seventh in the nation in total offense with 338.5 per game. He was a perfect fit for Rich Rodriguez's K offense. We expect the Wildcats' offense to take a step back in 2013, whether B.J. Denker or JC transfer Jesse Scroggins wins the QB job. As good as national rushing champion Ka'Deem Carey is, he will find the holes a bit smaller without Scott, even with a solid offensive line coming back.

    Defenses will continue to rise: Arizona State defensive tackle Will Sutton and UCLA outside linebacker Anthony Barr will be first-team preseason All-Americans, and Stanford will again have one of the nation's top 10 defenses. But we also expect across-the-board improvement on defense.

    But it will still be the Conference of QBs: Mariota will win the Heisman and again earn the first-team All-Pac-12 nod, but the battle for second-team will be hot between Arizona State's Taylor Kelly, Stanford's Kevin Hogan, UCLA's Brett Hundley and Washington's Keith Price, who will be the conference's Comeback Player of the Year.

    Players of the Year? Mariota and Barr will win the offensive and defensive player of the year awards in the conference. Sutton and Stanford's David Yankey will repeat as Morris Trophy winners as the best linemen. Incoming Oregon running back Thomas Tyner will win offensive freshman of the year, and USC redshirt freshman linebacker Jabari Ruffin will earn defensive freshman honors.

    Breakout player: Junior Oregon State receiver Brandin Cooks will earn first-team All-Pac-12 honors with Marqise Lee.

    Breakout player II: Dykes will figure out a way to get talented junior running back Brendan Bigelow touches. Bigelow will make Dykes glad he did.

    Speaking of newcomers: Utah doesn't look as if it sets up for a great 2013, in large part thanks to issues on both lines. But things might perk up if 6-foot-4, 330-pound defensive tackle Junior Salt proves equal to expectations. And stays healthy. Salt was a JC transfer -- a former Florida recruit -- who sat out last year after breaking his foot in August. Coach Kyle Whittingham practically blushed talking about him and how he made Star Lotulelei look small.

    And Oregon State's starting QB in 2013 is ...: Heck, what do you think we are... psychic?

    No offense to the good UW fans like Boozer and Natey by the way. It's just a joke because a lot of UW fans have been saying that same thing for a decade.

    Also, Oregon is out of it for Myles Jack. Apparently our interest in him waned. Maybe Alec James is being looked at for LB, and he just visited. Chip had an in-home visit with Nico Falah on Monday also. It went well, but I still think Oregon is on the outside looking in.

    Ted did say they were bold predictions.


    I like Miller because he always homers it up for the Pac12 on a website full of SEC stans.

    Yeah and not like it matters but the nations what 2nd leading rusher is gone from Nevada and the QB and those 2 top WRs are both going pro from Tennessee. Non-League should be a cake walk this year and I really think all we have to do is beat Stanford and Oregon should go undefeated. We got to shore up the LB position but other than that we should be golden. I hope they get that Zach Cunningham kid in recruiting. His video that they just released has him playing in beast mode!!!!!!
