From Pullman—Following a hectic week both in the Pac-12 and around the country, the Pac-12 has made a clear case for the arugment that it is the nation's deepest conference. However, according a Las Vegas insider says that its the toughest at the top as well.

The saga of Oregon assistant Nick Aliotti — who made disparaging remarks about WSU coach Mike Leach following UO's 62-38 victory — continues. Aliotti made a public apology, to which Leach responded. WSU athletic director Bill Moos had some remarks as well. In the end, Aliotti was fined by the conference despite the apology. Was Aliotti's greatest strength his downfall?

The Cougars won't practice until Thursday with a bye game this weekend … Norman Chad has a third installment of his Couch Slouch series … Has Vince Mayle become a real weapon for Leach's offense? 

Arizona: Finally, Arizona's quarterback is good enough to win with … A big Wildcats recruit decided to stay home.

Arizona State: The Sun Devils now have their breakout win … But aren't getting much love nationally.

Cal: Maybe the Golden Bears need to shake things up at quarterback.

Colorado: The Buffs' have a tough task ahead of them.

Oregon: De'Anthony Thomas is ready to go against UCLA … For the first time all season Marcus Mariota needs to work on his ball security.

Oregon State: The Beavers have their toughest test yet coming up.

Stanford: The Cardinal bounced back last weekend thanks to a lot of luck (No, not THAT Luck) … not playing fake football helped.

UCLA: Things could be worse for the Bruins.

USC: There's a kicker controversy in Los Angeles … Josh Shaw's career boomerang of a career may take another turn.

Utah: Things aren't exactly going swimmingly in Salt Lake City … Utah needs to have Plan B at quarterback.

Washington: Nick Saban, Joe Steele and others react to the passing of coach Don James.
