Quotes from the Trojans' head coach Lane Kiffin after Sunday's practice at Howard Jones Field.
Now that we’ve gotten a good amount of games under our belt I feel comfortable with making a top ten among the college football teams.
1. Alabama. Their defense is awesome of course. What separates them from the rest though is their ability to demoralize their opponents with their running game. I honestly don’t see them losing.
2. Louisiana State. Like Alabama their defense...
Quotes from the Trojans' head coach Lane Kiffin after a Monday practice at Howard Jones Field. Read on for what the coach had to say about USC's receivers Marqise Lee and Robert Woods, offensive lineman Aundrey Walker and a look at California ahead of Thursday's game.
While Andrew Luck continues to draw effusive praise from his coach, he's apparently not doing enough to impress himself.
Luck will try to help the No. 7 Cardinal set a school record by extending the nation's longest win streak to 14 games Saturday night when they visit Washington State.
Stanford (5-0, 3-0 Pac-12) is seventh in the country with 46.2 points per game behind...

Take Peyton Manning off the field, and the Indianapolis Colts are the worst team in football. They are currently 0-5 and have poll position (if you want to call it that) in the race for the first overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. The prize for last place figures to be Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck. Colts owner Jim Irsay has expressed interest in drafting Luck if the team gets...
A regular feature on Friday’s edition of NBC SportsTalk comes from one of Peter King’s favorite phrases: “You’re wrong and here’s why.” This week’s debate focused on the question of whether teams will try to lose (or not try to win) late in the season in order to secure dibs on Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck,…
During the NFLs annual fall meeting in Houston Monday, Colts owner Jim Irsay strongly indicated that his team would be willing to take someone such as Stanfords Andrew Luck in the 2012 NFL draft if the opportunity presented itself. Guys like that come along so rarely, Irsay said, referring to Manning and what many are projecting of Luck. The Stanford senior is already widely...

Simply stated, we’re looking at 12 major unbeaten teams in the Top 25. Teams are bowl-eligible. The big boys will have to play each other…and already, that process has begun.
Here’s what I learned about college football this weekend:
1. Quarterbacks are beginning to emerge and make huge differences in games. Out west, Stanford’s Andrew Luck (above) is quietly enjoying...
Cals defensive coordinator, Clancy Pendergast, has been known to get a little bit fancy. His efforts in the past have slowed some very high powered offenses down, the most notable result being Cals 15-13 loss against Oregon last year. Only losing by two points was the closest anybody came to touching the Ducks until the BCS national championship.
How do they do it?
They are very...
If you’ve ever walked out of a casino penniless you’ve likely felt Gambler’s Regret. You look back on what just happened trying to pinpoint where it all went wrong. Maybe you were up a little bit at some point and thought about leaving, but ultimately pushed your luck a bit too far. Maybe you played perfect strategy at a table, but then the dealer turned over a brutal...
NFL rules generally prohibit team personnel from commenting on college players who have yet to be certified for entry into the draft. Thus, when Colts owner Jim Irsay talked to Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports about Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck, who still has one more year of college eligibility, it appeared that Irsay could be…
While Stanford QB Andrew Luck picked apart Colorado on Saturday, Broncos football guru John Elway watched closely -- presumably in awe. This can't bode well for Tim Tebow's future.
