September 10, 2014 at 1:59 PM

The weekly Pac-12 Prankings . . .

Wherein we take a stern, serious, traditional look at the state of football in the league:

1. Oregon (2-0) … Missing Lyerla’s leadership, but still doing OK

2. USC (2-0) . . . Sark promises to summon only USC president to sideline

3. Arizona State (2-0) . . . Foster best D.J. in league since legendary Husky coach

4. UCLA (2-0) . . . Pac-12 renames series on underperforming Bruins “The Jive”

5. Stanford (1-1) . . . Now referring to scoring territory as the Dread Zone

6. Arizona (2-0) . . . In huddle, Trey Griffey sometimes checks iPhone for Mariner scores

7. California (2-0) . . . Bears stirring memories of best Tom Holmoe teams

8. Washington (2-0) . . . Huskies now required to fold hands on sideline, too

9. Oregon State (2-0) . . . Bye week, so still hanging out at Hanauma Bay

10. Utah (2-0) . . . Revealed: Actually thought it was joining WAC, not Pac, in 2010

11. Colorado (1-1) . . . Win over Minutemen not a second too soon for Buffs

12. WSU (2-0) . . . No wins, but tied for league lead in new buildings
