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.
