Roundup: Arizona State All-American Ka'Deem Carey?

Arizona Athletics


So running back Ka’Deem Carey’s AFCA All-America plaque was sent to Arizona State. Wait a minute… he didn’t go to Arizona State! Let's check the TL of Maggie Emmons, who works in the media relations department at ASU:

Things got a little, how do we say, uncomfortable: 

Gives us the perfect opportunity to talk smack six weeks in advance of the Territorial Cup. 

Sounds like Maggie's conscience got the best of her in the end, but maybe the Arizona athletic department should thank its lucky stars that Carey ended up in the Windy City. 



The Associated Press voted the 2004 USC football team as the best team of the BCS era. Tough to argue against a squad with Reggie Bush and Matt Leinart.


Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott did a Q&A with CBS Sports’ Jon Solomon, and in it he claims that the Pac-12 has the toughest road to the College Football Playoff. Also, important programming note: the Utah-Oregon State Thursday night game will be simulcast on the Pac-12 Networks because of the MLB playoffs.


Anne M. Peterson of the Associated Press writes that Oregon silenced its critics by beating UCLA the way it did. The rushing attack was as explosive as ever and Mariota was much better protected, in large thanks to the return of left tackle Jake Fisher to action.


How about this? Stanford golfer Viraat Badhwar met Tiger Woods and then shot a 59 the next day.


David Lombardi plans out what Washington has to do to beat Oregon Saturday night. As he notes, it has been 4,000 days since the Huskies last took down the Quacks. That's nearly 11 years ago.


UCLA linebacker Myles Jack showed his support for Georgia running back Todd Gurley on Instagram with a #FreeGurley hashtag. The Bulldog back is indefinitely suspended for a potential NCAA rules violation. Also, UCLA wide receiver Jordan Payton outlined for reporters what the Bruins need to change in order to get back to winning football games.

Arizona State

Doug Haller writes that Arizona State’s defensive line is trying to grow up quickly. This is a group that’s still feeling the losses of Will Sutton, Carl Bradford and Davon Coleman.


California Golden Blogs gives us a Cal football injury report. The biggest news is that Cal’s leading tackler, safety Griffin Piatt, is out for the season.

Oregon State

There isn’t any precipitation in the forecast for Thursday night, but the Beavers are getting ready to play in the rain because the rainy season is almost here in Corvallis, notes Gina Mizell. In fact, it’s supposed to rain this week in Beaverville (just not during the North-South showdown of 4-1 teams).


It sounds like Utah defensive back Tevin Carter is questionable for the Oregon State game, though some of the players that reporters talked to made it sound like he’s out.


Tom Kensler shines The Denver Post spotlight on Colorado tight end Kyle Slavin, a senior who is making the most of his time on the field and in team meetings. His parents and grandparents went to CU, so you could say (as he does) that he was born to be a Buffalo.

Washington State

Andrew Crookston of CougCenter details efforts of the Cougar athletic department to get people excited about Washington State men’s basketball this year. DaVonté Lacy sure is fun to watch, and that Que Johnson kid showed off more than a thing or two last season. Also, proven winner Ernie Kent is in town.
