    [​IMG]The first official football gathering of the new Pac-12 -- media day -- will be held on July 26 in Los Angeles. It will feature all 12 coaches, and each team brings along a star player.

    Hmm. I wonder what reporters will ask Oregon coach Chip Kelly about?

    [​IMG]I don't wonder what his answers will be: Some form of "no comment," though the exact phrasing might include some chippy Chipperism that we've all grown to love.

    But even with those no comments, there will be plenty to talk about -- with Kelly and all the other coaches.

    Do you have questions you want asked? Feel free to send them along. Or comment below.

    Here a list of who will be there and what we're interested in asking.

    Quarterback Nick Foles and coach Mike Stoops

    Top questions: While the rebuilding of both lines is a prime issue, Wildcats fans will want an update on receiver Juron Criner's health from Mike Stoops. And they will want to know about 2010's late-season slide.

    Arizona State
    Quarterback Brock Osweiler and coach Dennis Erickson

    Top questions: Are the Sun Devils ready to play as the favorites in the Pac-12 South? And is there any chance cornerback Omar Bolden plays this fall?

    Receiver Marvin Jones and coach Jeff Tedford

    Top questions: Is Zach Maynard the man to restore Tedford's reputation as a developer of QBs? How does Tedford feel about growing fan discontent?

    Quarterback Tyler Hansen and coach Jon Embree

    Top questions: Does it feel different heading into the season as a member of the Pac-12 instead of the Big 12? What went wrong under Dan Hawkins that's going to go right under Embree?

    Tight end David Paulson and coach Chip Kelly

    Top questions: Er, any comment on Willie Lyles? What about those rebuilt offensive and defensive lines? What's up with suspended cornerback Cliff Harris and linebacker Kiko Alonso?

    Oregon State
    Safety Lance Mitchell and coach Mike Riley

    Top questions: What went wrong last year? How's James Rodgers knee doing? And about those lines...

    Quarterback Andrew Luck and coach David Shaw

    Top questions: Does it feel different to be a frontrunner rather than a darkhorse? What's going to be different under Shaw compared to Jim Harbaugh? What about holes at receiver and on both lines?

    Running back Johnathan Franklin and coach Rick Neuheisel

    Top questions: Is this a win or else season for Neuheisel? What's going to happen at quarterback? What's the status of O-lineman Jeff Baca (broken ankle)?

    Quarterback Matt Barkley and coach Lane Kiffin

    Top questions: What's the approach with no postseason as a motivation? Injury update, please! What about the depth on the O-line and LB? And is Armond Armstead going to play in 2011?

    Offensive tackle Tony Bergstrom and coach Kyle Whittingham

    Top questions: Do the Utes think they will become an immediate contender in the Pac-12 South race? Is quarterback Jordan Wynn 100 percent and back to his old self after shoulder surgery?

    Running back Chris Polk and coach Steve Sarkisian

    Top questions: What's the offense going to look like post-Jake Locker? What's the pecking order at linebacker? What does the bowl victory mean about the state of the program?

    Washington State
    Receiver Jared Karstetter and coach Paul Wulff

    Top questions: Is this a win or else season for Wulff? Will the defense improve enough to support what should be a good offense? How good can quarterback Jeff Tuel be?

    I have one. If Dan Hawkins were on a hiking trip and he was on a path that had a peak above and a valley below, would he ever find shelter?

    Coach Embree, what is your feeling about playing leapfrog or matador during football games?
