Unquiet on the Western Front: Jimmer Fredette, Stanford's Shane Skov, Chris Petersen, and more.

(Unquiet on the Western Front is SWRT's look at the Pac-12, WAC, Mountain West, and other West Coast/Rocky Mountain schools extravaganza.)   


UCLA is lacking in  fundamentals. Better pre-season coaching would help. Somebody other than Rick Neuheiselas head football coach would probably help too. But that's just my opinion. (Bruins Nation)

Cal may trot out alternate white helmets for 2011. They should probably ask Georgia how stunts like that work out first. (Sports by Brooks)

Meet Shane Skov, the Stanford junior linebacker who might steal a headline or two from Andrew Luck this year. (Dr. Saturday)

Stanford's recruiting class is smarter than you. Which will be a good thing for Stanford unless somebody teaches Watson the Jeopardy-winning computer how to throw a thirty-yard pass. (Wall Street Journal)

"Tiny" award is a big achievement. Former Cal wide reciever Jeremy Ross was honored with the Tiny Bates Award, which is given each year to the most outstanding Cal senior from the Sacramento Valley area. (California Golden Blogs).  

Chris Petersen's bonus round. Boise State head football coach Chris Petersen will get a $35,000 raise after changes to his contract were approved by the Idaho State Board of Education. The board also approved funding for a new football facility for Boise St. (Idaho Statesman)

BASKETBALL  

It's just a flesh wound.  America's New Mancrush, Jimmer Fredette says an injured left calf won't keep him out of Wednesday's  BYU home game against Colorado State. (Salt Lake Tribune)

CBS puts its eye on Ducks and Wildcats. CBS will broadcast the March 5 regular season Oregon-Arizona regular-season ending match-up. (OregonLive.com)

Blame it on inconsistency. If Utah men's basketball coach Jim Boylen gets fired, it will be due to the lack of consistent when it comes to success on the court. (Block U)

Blame it on Steve Jobs. Washington State junior guard Klay Thompson was benched for the first five minutes and 47 seconds of an embarrassing 71-69 defeat to Arizona State for being late to get on the team bus. He said he had lost his iPod. (The Spokesman-Review)
