USC, UCLA and Cal look like they will continue to be at or near the top of the conference. Those teams are reloading this year, trying to stay ahead of some of the have-nots.
The bottom half of the Pac-10 is undergoing a serious makeover. One school that has undergone an attitude adjustment in the coach's office is Stanford.
New coach Jim Harbaugh, the former Michigan quarterback, took on USC and Michigan during the spring. He insinuated that Pete Carroll was going to leave USC after this season, and indicated Michigan has ways of getting players with borderline academics into school.
He followed up his USC comments by saying, "We bow to no man at Stanford University." Whether that happens in the fall remains to be seen.
Other teams changing with the times this spring were Arizona, where Sonny Dykes brought his pass-oriented offense from Texas Tech. Also in Arizona, Dennis Erickson looks to revive the ASU Sun Devils in his third tour of duty in the Pac-10.
