By the way, the Mike Leach hire scares me. I can't stand that guy, but I watched his team pick apart an Aaron Rodgers led Cal team in 2004 at the Holiday Bowl. Plus, we know that with the crappy talent he had at TT, he was still competing with the powerhouses. He puts Wash St. on the map immediately. The North division is no joke.
Rose Bowl: Oregon vs Wisconsin
Fiesta Bowl: Stanford vs Oklahoma State
Las Vegas Bowl: Arizona State vs Boise State
Holiday Bowl: Cal vs Texas
Alamo Bowl: Washington vs Baylor
Sun Bowl: Utah vs Georgia Tech
Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl: UCLA vs Illinois
New coaches are:
Washington State - Mike Leach
UCLA - Jim Mora Jr
Arizona State - Todd Graham
Arizona - Rich Rodriquez
Not a bad set of hires...
Leach & Rich Rodriquez are solid hires, but I'm not sold on Jim Mora Jr. or Graham. UCLA should have just admitted they were wrong to fire Karl Dorrell and hired him back. With a bigger budget now, Dorrell could have attracted even better assistant coaches than he had(Jon Embree, Tom Cable, Eric Bieniemy, DeWayne Walker, etc). I never realized how cheap UCLA was in terms of compensation to their coaches.
