You remember the three-headed monster, right? It's about returning production that will scare -- terrify! --opponents. Or not. On offense, it's elite combinations at quarterback, running back and receiver.
Taking stock of the final week of the regular season in the Pac-12: Team of the week: UCLA was coming off a tough loss to Arizona State, while Ed Orgeron and USC were the toast of the City of Angels after a 6-1 run, post-Lane Kiffin.
If not Coach O, then who? That was the lingering question among those USC fans suffering through a massive hangover in the aftermath of Saturday night's 35-14 loss to UCLA. The wildly emotional "Hire Ed Orgeron" campaign that undeniably had been building momentum for six giddy weeks wasn't just stopped by the Bruins and Brett Hundley; it was shattered into little cardinal and gold pieces.
Arizona running back Ka'Deem Carey has been named the Pac-12 offensive player of the week, along with Arizona State linebacker Chris Young, who was named defensive player of the week and UCLA returner Ishmael Adams, who was named special teams player of the week.
