Pac-12 Media Day Highlights


The 2011 football season is officially underway with the first Pac-12 Media Day in the books.  We have video interviews, a feature story and photographs to come, but here's the best stuff of the day.

Line of the Day

Matt Barkley on debunking a Lane Kiffin myth: "You are in the same place for two years in a row now, which is good. I'm happy to have the same coach for two years in a row.  We're progressing."

Story of the Day

Andrew Luck's beard.  The Stanford QB and Heisman candidate is rocking the Dan Fouts' facial hair, which even he admits might be a questionable look for him

Real Story of the Day

UCLA freshman QB Brett Hundley, who was expected to compete for the starting job, will miss 3-4 weeks after undergoing knee surgery brought on by an injury suffered on the basketball court, Rick Neuheisel announced in his presser.

Interview of the Day

After a million interviews and no food, Matt Barkley was inspired by the Fox studio surroundings and broke out his favorite accent just for us.

I know this post is about Media Day, but ... we are getting close to the beginning of fall practice and know that a few players - new recruits are not yet on campus. However, no one seems to know where Buck Allen is. Do you know his status?
