Hotdog & Friends:
Stanford did a few impossible things last weekend: They stopped Oregon’s offense. They won at Autzen Stadium. They won at Autzen Stadium WITH A FRESHMAN QB MAKING HIS FIRST ROAD START. Shocking result, but of course very welcome around these Purple parts. (Note: Purple parts.)
UCLA beat USC for the first time since 2006, confirming Jim Mora as a bona fide savior in Westwood. Oregon State thrashed Jeff Tedford right out of a job. Arizona ended Utah’s hopes of bowl eligibility. Miss the Mountain West yet, Utes? ASU obliterated Mike Leach, who isn’t even trying anymore. Washington kept their winning streak going, handling Colorado by 35.
Should UCLA tank this week’s game against Stanford in order to secure Stanford as the Bruins’ Pac-12 Championship Game opponent, rather than Oregon? Can Colorado find a second win against Utah? Any chance for the Beavs against the wounded Duckaroos?
All that and I reveal that I’m wary of the Cougs this week. The last thing I want is to saunter junk-first into the Nuts Kickin’ Saloon.

Jim Mora was being coy. He admitted such as he walked out of the Rose Bowl last Saturday night.
He was just a couple of hours removed from winning the first crosstown rivalry game he'd been a part of as UCLA's head coach.
He spent the week prior downplaying his team's matchup with USC and what it meant to be playing the crosstown rivals with the Pac-12 South Division...
Jeff Tedford could probably have seen this day coming miles away. Reports coming from the U of California indicate that Tedford is being dismissed. If there was ever a coach that could see his own firing coming, I would hope it was Tedford.Think about the PAC12 for a minute. As much pub as the SEC gets as being dominant, the PAC12 has become nothing to sneeze at. Oregon is a perennial...

There was another verbal dust-up involving UCLA Coach Jim Mora and USC that hit the airwaves Tuesday, though Mora claims it was the product of selective editing.
Mora, a guest on "The Dan Patrick Show," was asked about USC, and said, I dont give a rats behind about USC.
Mora said that was only half the comment.
What I said, without editing, is I dont give a rat's...
UCLA coach Jim Mora doesn't care who the Bruins face in next week's Pac-12 championship game.
Stanford is looking to join them, and play host.
The No. 11 Cardinal will try to set up a rematch with 15th-ranked UCLA by extending their winning streak in the series to four games Saturday.
The Bruins (9-2, 5-2) are headed back to the conference title game after beating then...

UCLA, in the first season under Jim L. Mora, have defended their Pac-12 South title. Unlike last season's team that was coached by the now fired Rick Neuheisel, this team has earned their way into the game and have a chance to host the game this season. UCLA beat archrival USC last week to...
