Just a quick post because I promised Kim today was her day. So while she's getting ready to go out to breakfast, some random thoughts from Saturday.

The best Pac-10 teams I saw yesterday were, in order, USC, Oregon and UCLA. The poorest were, in no particular order, Arizona (and the Wildcats are my pick to surprise this season), Stanford and, yes, WSU. The Cougars played the best opponent of the trio, however.

Idaho was a much-improved football team, and will give anyone they play fits - if the Vandals play like they did Saturday. You can find more on Jim Meehan's blog.
