A big day from San Francisco


FROM SAN FRANCISCO — We have plenty of football links for you, as usual. But today, we shift  our attention to basketball with media day being held at the Pac-12 Studios in downtown San Francisco. We'll be there, and you can join us. Read on.

As we mentioned a few days back, we'll hold a live chat that will run throughout the day. That, as well as my Twitter feed, will be where you can find notes and quotes for the duration of the event, and you can obviously chime in with any questions you might have. … In today's newspaper we took a look at Utah's successes in its home stadium this season, and also had our weekly Pac-12 picks. On the blog we took a look at Mike Leach's contract. And, unfortunately, I must correct an error made in the newspaper today. I miscalculated Utah's point totals at home. They have actually outscored their opponents 142-86 at home, not 152-76. … From Utah: A Utah defensive end has respect for Mike Leach. More on Leach from the Utah side.

Around the Pac-12 … Washington is winning close games (again). … Arizona is being lifted by its quarterback. … An Arizona State defensive lineman fills gaps now. … A small, speedy UCLA back gives the Bruins a big-play threat. … USC's defensive coordinator says Oregon seems to get faster every season. … Jon Wilner answers some college football questions. … Oregon State is getting into Halloween mode. … Oregon's injured linebackers are making progress this week. … Stanford's goose is good at getting loose. … Someone should feed this Colorado cornerback, because he is apparently hungry.

We'll have plenty of basketball for you on the chat today. Stop on by.
