So what does "o-rama?'' mean, anyway? Just seems to fit, I guess. On to the links. ...
---- Here's an interesting post from BruinZone.com via the LA Times UCLA blog with some entertaining comments from Rick Neuheisel at a recent auction. Neuheisel first apparently vowed to let the winner call the first play against USC next year (while whispering that the coaches will have the right to call an audible). Later, he said the winner of another auction for a trip to the UW game could stand next to him on the sidelines. "If you know my history at UDub, I need somebody next to me in case they want to throw debris,'' he is reported as saying. (By the way, I won't often link to message board posts, but this was already on the LA Times site, and it sounds so much like Neuheisel that I have little doubt he said those things).
--- Pete Thamel of The New York Times has this post speculating whether the change in commissioners at the Pac-10 as well as the departures of a few others who were against a college football playoff will change anything. His conclusion is the same one I voiced here yesterday --- that while it's popular to blame one guy for such things, commissioners are almost always just articulating the opinions of the presidents of the conference in which they serve. A new Pac-10 commissioner isn't suddenly going to change a whole lot if the presidents of the 10 schools don't want to go along. Hansen's an easy target, but this stuff is a lot more complicated than one person.
--- Jon Wilner's College Hotline has this look at the Pac-10 TV sked announced yesterday, pegging Sept. 13 as the best couch potato day of the season. He also says he plans to soon blog about potential replacements for Hansen. I like one that a poster mentioned --- Bill Moos. Karl Benson of the WAC is another logical one. Benson is a native of the state of Washington with deep ties to the area.
--- Scout.com has this look at the Washington Huskies from the perspective of the Oklahoma Sooners.
All for now.
