Simers is not particularly impressed with the Steve Alford hire at UCLA (there's an all-time classic Simers line at the end of that column, too). … New USC coach Andy Enfield wants to create a national brand. … Utah's offensive line is making a good impression so far this spring. … Colorado's quarterback spot is still up for grabs. … Oregon State has a Chief of Staff position like WSU. … Oregon picked up where it left off as it began spring practice yesterday. … Oregon's basketball team hopes this year was just the start of something better.
