Jake Dean, etc. named to ESPN’s All-Pac-10 Bowl Team

From Ted Miller:

The Pac-10 bowl season didn’t go well, but that doesn’t mean you don’t make an all-bowl team.

You may notice a lot of USC and UCLA players. You might remember that the LA schools posted the conference’s only two wins.


QB Matt Barkley, USC: Barkley completed 27 of 37 throws for 350 yards with two touchdowns against Boston College in the Emerald Bowl. He also had two interceptions.

RB Toby Gerhart, Stanford: Against an Oklahoma defense ganging up on him, he rushed for 133 yards and two touchdowns on 32 carries in a Sun Bowl loss.

RB Stanley Havili, USC: He only rushed for 2 yards, but he also he caught six passes for 83 yards with two touchdowns.

WR Damian Williams, USC: He caught 12 passes for a season-high 189 yards.

WR Damola Adeniji, Oregon State: He caught seven passes for 102 yards and a touchdown in the Beavers’ Las Vegas Bowl loss to BYU.

TE Anthony Miller, California: He led Cal with five receptions for 55 yards in the Poinsettia Bowl loss to Utah.

OL Chris Marinelli, Stanford: The offense was without its starting quarterback, but Gerhart gained 133 yards and the Sooners only had one sack.

OL Mike Tepper, California: Cal’s pass protection wasn’t great against Utah, but running back Shane Vereen finished with 122 yards rushing and two touchdowns.

OL Charles Brown, USC: The Trojans didn’t run terribly well vs. Boston College, but they only yielded one sack and gave Barkley plenty of time to throw.

OL Jake Dean, UCLA: He was thrust into the starting lineup after starting center after Kai Maiava was ruled academically ineligible, and the Bruins yielded only one sack vs. Temple.

OL Chase Beeler, Stanford: See Marinelli.

K Kai Forbath, UCLA: He kicked field goals of 40 and 42 yards.

DT Jurrell Casey, USC: Casey had five tackles, a sack and a 22-yard return of a fumble.

DT Brian Price, UCLA: Price started slowly vs. Temple but he dominated the second half and finished with five tackles, with one coming for a loss.

DE Tyson Alualu, California: Alualu had five tackles, with 1.5 coming for a loss.

LB Akeem Ayers, UCLA: Ayers led the Bruins with nine tackles, two for a loss, and his leaping interception at the Temple 2-yard line, which he returned for a TD, was the play of the Pac-10 bowl season.

LB Kyle Bosworth, UCLA: He finished with seven tackles and 1.5 sacks.
LB Eddie Young, California: Young had seven tackles and returned an interception 31 yards for a TD.

CB Shareece Wright, USC: In his first game back after academic ineligibility, Wright grabbed a key interception.

    Jon – you need to edit Kyle Bosworth’s and Rahim Moore’s names and descriptions into BOLD as well. Thanks for the information



    Speaking of Dean, who is our back up center, assuming Kai gets his grades back up?

  • That Ayers pick-6 still gives me chills… play of the year for UCLA in my mind, even if it was half-lucky.

    Back-up center should be Ryan Taylor..

    Other USC problems:

    INDIANAPOLIS—The NCAA Men’s Water Polo Committee has reprimanded the University of Southern California men’s water polo team for inappropriate behavior following the championship event at the 2009 NCAA Water Polo Championship.

    Specifically, the team’s actions at the Westin Hotel following the men’s water polo championship caused damage to the hotel, discredited the event and could have potentially caused harm to other hotel guests. Because of these actions, the committee decided to issue a public reprimand to the entire University of Southern California men’s water polo team.

    The men’s water polo committee was disappointed in the University of Southern California men’s water polo team actions and strongly believes the championships should not be tarnished by such acts.

    There should be an award for the heroic play of TE Logan Paulsen. Paulsen will be playing on Sundays in the future.
