PASADENA, Calif. -- Some quick hits from media day.
Coach Jeff Tedford with LB Mike Mohamed. The Bears were picked seventh in the media poll after finishing tied for fifth in 2009.
Tedford pointed out that QB Kevin Riley is the conference leader in TD passes, wins and starts.
As for defense, "We need to get better in pass defense." He said they're still in a 3-4 with their new coordinator (Clancy Pendergast) but the scheme is "a little more multiple."
Tedford: "It used to be eight wins was good ... but that's not enough any more. We have a burning desire to go to the Rose Bowl."
Mohamed on USC NCAA sanctions: "I definitely feel for the players."
NY trip: "I was a proponent of it ... it was a first-class trip all the way."
On divisions: "I do hope it works out that we play the Southern California teams every year."
