Roundup: USC is good at water polo, too
We are going to have PLENTY of Sark coverage coming up for you, USC fan, so in this space, it’s only right to let you know that the USC men’s water polo team grabbed the No. 1 seed for the 2013 NCAA championships. No UCLA in the tournament this year, so we won’t have another USC-UCLA final, but the Trojans could win their sixth straight NCAA crown.
Sark to USC is big news, but don’t forget that the Pac-12 Football Championship Game is this Saturday, so let’s continue our coverage of the big game by linking out to the venerable Doug Haller, who writes that Arizona State stopping Stanford’s stellar success on third downs is key to winning the game.
While Stanford’s head coach has all the respect in the world for Will Sutton, the Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year, David Shaw is disappointed Trent Murphy wasn’t Pac-12’s top defender.
Colorado’s top wide receiver made it official yesterday: Paul Richardson is entering the 2014 NFL Draft. He had one year of eligibility remaining following his historic redshirt junior season. Best of luck to P-Rich.
With Ka’Deem Carey being named the Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Year yesterday, let’s take a look at Carey’s Arizona school records, thanks to Anthony Gimino.
One guy who wasn’t so happy with not making first or second-team All-Pac-12 is Oregon wide receiver Josh Huff, who felt “disrespected” by the Pac-12 honorable mention (and he has a statistical point).
Nice Q&A with Washington State AD Bill Moos conducted by Jacob Thorpe of the Spokesman-Review. Cougs hopin’ to get to play one more football game this season.
Ah yes, this is shaping up to be a very nice tournament with UCLA men’s basketball playing in the 2014 Battle 4 Atlantis in the Bahamas. Also there: North Carolina, Florida, Butler, Georgetown, Wisconsin, Oklahoma, and UAB. DEEP field.
Utah men’s hoops has a big game tonight at Boise State (both teams 6-0), and freshman guard Parker Van Dyke is living his Ute dream. He has bled Ute red ever since he was a wee lad.
The Cal men’s hoops team disposed of the Anteaters last night, and here is Justin Cobbs after his nine assists in the win over UC Irvine.
Doesn’t it sound like a good idea to take a moment to marvel at the hairiness of Oregon State kicker Trevor Romaine?
