To say the first half of the season around the Pac-12 has had its share of surprises would be an understatement. The fall of the Oregon Ducks has been one of the biggest surprises this season in a negative way, but the rise of Utah and Cal have been among the more positive surprises in the first half of the season around the Pac-12.

Make no mistake about it. The USC coaching job carries some importance all throughout the Pac-12, as the right coaching hire can have a significant impact on not just the Trojans but the landscape of the Pac-12 for years to come. USC terminated the contract of head coach Steve Sarkisian Monday, a day after placing the coach on an indefinite leave of absence. Sarkisian’s off-field demons with alcohol crossed over…

The last few days have made for a busy round on the coaching carousel. On Saturday North Texas pulled the plug on Dan McCarney following a massive embarrassment of a home loss to FCS Portland State.

We are just now hitting the middle of October and two coaches in the Big Ten have lost their jobs this season. Illinois head coach Tim Beckman lost his job before the first kickoff of the season as the school was investigating allegations of how Beckman handled his players.

Podcast: The Heisman Watch is officially on

Heading into the 2015 college football season my preseason Heisman Trophy pick was quarterback Trevone Boykin. There were some good reasons to believe he would at least be heading to New York City, including I believed TCU will go undefeated, he plays quarterback and hit his stride at the right time a season ago. Boykin may very well end up making the trip to New York City for the Heisman…

Oregon still team to beat, but is USC moving up? We are still in the midst of SEC Media Day Days Week, but now is as good a time as any to start looking a little ahead and catching up with the Pac-12. The Pac-12 media days are still a couple of weeks away at this point, overlapping with Big Ten media days this year, but the conference is full…

Wisconsin’s national semifinal victory over previously unbeaten Kentucky sent the Badgers to Monday night’s NCAA men’s basketball championship game. The Big Ten champions will take on Duke, who earlier this season defeated the Badgers in Madison during the ACC-Big Ten Challenge.
