At 8:46 a.m. on September 11th, 2001, a Boeing 767 flew into the North tower of the World Trade Center. At first, many people thought this was an accident, but soon found they were very wrong. “Everything was dead quiet in our office” said Monsanto employee Kristin Ludwig. “But then our phones started ringing off […]

This time last year, the South division was loaded with intrigue driven by fresh faces, be it the new head coaches at Arizona, Arizona State and UCLA or the freshman quarterback at USC. There’s no shortage of intrigue this winter, either, but now it’s about several of those fresh faces reversing negative narratives. The Hotline’s two-part preview of spring practice across the Pac-12 begins with the South because one team, Arizona State, is already halfway through its spring session. The North preview is coming later this week. Links to the Hotline’s early look at the 2019 season are at the bottom. (Note: All spring games/scrimmages will be televised by the Pac-12 Networks.) *** Arizona State Start: Feb. 5 End: Feb. 28 Key addition: freshman quarterback Jayden Daniels What to watch: Three freshmen quarterbacks, one junior quarterback, and a huge void to fill following Manny Wilkins’ departure. Daniels was the top-ranked quarterback in California in the class of ’19 and will be given every opportunity to win the job. There seems to be less-than-zero chance of coach Herm Edwards and offensive coordinator Rob Likens naming a starter at the close of camp, but we should have a decent feel for which of the four quarterbacks won’t have a chance to start in September. It’s not all about the rookies; don’t discount veteran Dillon Sterling-Cole. Spring game: Feb. 28 (6 p.m.) *** Utah Start: March 4 End: April 13 Key addition: offensive coordinator Andy Ludwig What to watch: Yes, we’re curious about Ludwig’s approach but assuming there won’t be radical changes to the scheme his predecessor, Troy Taylor put in place. Instead, the Hotline plans to keep a close eye on the middle of the defense following the departures of linebackers Chase Hansen and Cody Barton and safeties Marquise Blair and Corrion Ballard. The most intriguing player in that regard is linebacker Francis Bernard, the BYU transfer, who takes a larger role for the Utes in 2019. The perimeter should be first rate. If the interior is merely solid, Utah will again have one of the best defenses in the conference. Spring game: April 13 (10 a.m.) *** UCLA Start: March 5 End: April 20 Key addition: freshman offensive lineman Sean Rhyan What to watch: Sophomore quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson’s development is vital to a turnaround, but several other areas that demand attention, too. Topping the list, in the Hotline’s opinion, are the defensive edges. UCLA was 119th in the country in sacks per game last season (1.25) and 117th in tackles-for-loss (4.58). The pressure must improve. The Bruins have several solid pieces, including Keisean Lucier-South, but no obvious replacement for the dynamic Jaelan Phillips, who left the program. Spring game: April 20 (TBA) *** USC Start: March 5 End: April 6 Key addition: offensive coordinator Graham Harrell What to watch: The Hotline is of the opinion that the Trojans should recreate their Student Body Right/Left dominance at the line of scrimmage and bludgeon all foes. Of course, that would take a different head coach, a new mindset and revamped recruiting/teaching of offensive linemen. Given the realities of the program in 2019, anything Harrell can do to spread the field and add creativity to the passing game — screen passes! — will upgrade the offense. It’s Pro Style (traditional USC) vs. Conference USA (Helton’s background) vs. hybrid Air Raid (Harrell). Spring game: April 6 (11 a.m.) *** Arizona Start: March 18 End: April 13 Key addition: freshman receiver Jalen Curry What to watch: We could  focus on Khalil Tate’s body language and interactions with play-caller Noel Mazzone and coach Kevin Sumlin and leave it at that. But we won’t, because Tate needs someone to throw to. More than one someone, in fact, and the Wildcats lost their top-three receivers (Shawn Poindexter, Shun Brown and Tony Ellison combined for 23 of 29 touchdown receptions). Who emerges this spring? All eyes will be on Curry, the Wildcats’ only 4-star recruit. But the role players from ’18 must develop. Spring game: April 13 (5 p.m.) [related_articles location=”left” show_article_date=”false” article_type=”curated” curated_ids=”5878065,5877260,5881283″] *** Colorado Start: March 18 End: April 27 Key addition: defensive tackle Jauna’vius Johnson (from Auburn) What to watch: Obvious answer: Laviska Shenault’s toe. More nuanced answer: CU’s mindset. The Hotline chatted with Mel Tucker at the national championship game, and it’s clear that he plans to deploy a physical approach at the at the line of scrimmage, one shaped not only by his time in the SEC (Alabama and Georgia) but also the AFC North. (He was on the Browns’ staff when did did not stink.) Going old school in a division with several finesse teams makes sense for the Buffaloes. Adding Johnson is a good start toward that end.

Midterm exams at Ole Miss are next week, so I suppose it’s a bit late to be writing a post about spring activities. Indeed, we’ve already had a few goings on in the low brass studio, including a trombone ensemble performance of the national anthem at the women’s basketball game against Auburn and a master […]

Infants appreciate early exposure to […]

To the stalwart few readers I have left: you may recall that last year I released a post around this time that put a number of predictions about the Academy’s annual soiree into the rough-and-tumble land of cyberspace.  Checking the tape, it appears that I miraculously went 5/7 on my predictions that were actually predictions, […]
