As’s Ted Miller points out, sometimes hype works. Especially if it’s new, and the Pac-10 football tour going east is new. Though there wasn’t all that much in the New York papers (and really, the emphasis seemed to be on other media), the Associated Press jumped on the bandwagon with this Ralph Russo story.
