1) Is D. Riley just pulling our chain? Do you think he is really considering UCLA? I know he was in the chat, but everything I’ve been reading says he has been a USC fan since childhood…? – PasadenaBruin07
I think he really likes UCLA, but in the end, will choose a bigger program. Just my feeling.
2) Do you think Zumwalt backed off his UCLA lean in your interview with him because he is a soft verbal to Stanford and will be visiting there this weekend, thus avoiding an awkward situation? It looks to me like UCLA is such a fit for him and his family… – PasadenaBruin07
3) What exactly goes on in an in-home visit? Is it done over a dinner, what is being discussed? How does this sways a recruit’s decision. – Mom
Everything is discussed, sometimes they eat, sometimes they don’t, sometimes the whole family is there, sometimes just one parent. It all sways a recruit’s decision.
4) What is your (very) early prediction on the Pac-10 standing for the 2010 season in football? – Matt A
Oregon, Cal, Oregon State, USC, UCLA, Arizona, Washington, Stanford, Arizona State, Washington State.
5) My own biases aside, I have seen way too many seemingly one-sided affairs just like last Saturday. Do you think the officials in the Pac-10 are biased, incompetent, or a combination of both? – Dean
I think home teams always get the benefits on all courts in every conference in America.
6) Any thoughts on George Uko and how his recruiting situation may pan out? – Spencer
I don’t think it’s looking good.
7) Also, do you know when Xavier Grimble will visit? – Spencer
It’s been cancelled. He’s firm with USC.
8) Carroll leaving has left me quite depressed. I even had a fight with my wife when she said she hoped it rained every day in Seattle while Carroll is there. But I will only recall how he brought class, enthusiasm, good looks, national championships, and a sense that college football was the greatest sport on earth to ol’ SC. Who will be new coach as ‘SC and will the new coach take Norm Chow to ‘SC? What have you heard? Thank you. – BE REAL
Uh, well, Lane Kiffin is there. So I guess you can be happy? And, um, no, Norm Chow is staying. Sorry?
9) Any updates on Barr or Pullard? What are our chances with Grimble? – Anonymous
Barr is leaning Notre Dame, Pullard is still looking good for UCLA, Grimble is solid USC.
10) One rumor was that Neueheisel was pushing for Mike Riley’s OSU recruits pretty hard back where Riley to USC was still a possibility. Did he make any progress? – Anonymous
The biggest is Owa, and he’s still up in the air.
