Ted Miller Death is always on the way, but the fact that you don't know when it will arrive seems to take away from the finiteness of life. It's that terrible precision that we hate so much. But because we don't know, we get to think of life as an inexhaustible well. Yet everything happens a certain number of times, and a very small number, really. A young defensive lineman gets an opportunity at Arizona. It's not only about catching the football for this Arizona State receiver. California is already getting ready for Oregon, and it's interesting that quarterback Zach Maynard thought Colorado's Folsom Field is louder than Washington's Husky Stadium. Colorado wide receiver Paul Richardson promises to break out of a mini-slump. A running back volunteers to help the secondary. Very sad: Mike Helfrich, the father of Oregon offensive coordinator Mark Helfrich, died before last Saturday's game at Arizona. What's wrong with Oregon State? Stanford's co-defensive coordinator Jason Tarver is an interesting guy who could have done a lot of other things rather than coach football. If Stanford safety Michael Thomas seems theatrical at times, there's a good reason. A young safety needs to step up for UCLA. Some notes and an injury update. Is George Farmer, one of USC's top 2011 signees, going to switch from receiver to running back? Utah's tough defense will be tested by Washington. It appears Washington has found its next great tight end. Washington State receiver Marquess Wilson is a difference-maker. Originally posted by ESPN.com - Pac-10 Blog Click here to view the article.
