Opponent's Notebook: July 31

From the shadow of the Walkup Skydome on the campus of Northern Arizona University, it's your weekly look around ASU's opponents.

Speaking of NAU, the Jacks open camp on the same day as ASU, and for the record, the new turf at the Skydome is pretty sweet. (Arizona Daily Sun)

Our boy Jon Wilner gives Stanford six things to accomplish during camp, which opens tomorrow. Here's #7: keep running that Tavita Pritchard to Mark Bradford (or any other receiver) fade. Every play. It'll never get old. (San Jose Mercury News)

UNLV also opens camp next week, but too bad Rebels fans, you can't go see your boys practice. (UNLVRebels.com)

One of UGA's Arrested 7 will only sit one game after his DUI was downgraded to a reckless driving charge. (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)

Oh boy! It's time for "Tedford Talk"! (CalBears.com)

Actually a fairly interesting uniform note: the NCAA might let the Trojans and Bruins renew their old tradition of wearing their respective red and blue home jerseys when they play each other. (Los Angeles Daily News)

The police blotter (non-Georgia edition) includes recently suspended starting LB Kevin Garrett getting arrested on suspicion of DUI. If he was looking to get reinstated quickly, these three words should end that thought: "There was resistance." (The Oregonian)
OSU to potential starting QB Lyle Moevao: Jesus Christ, STOP EATING! (The Oregonian)

While Moevao is avoiding unnecessary cheeseburgers, Jake Locker is trying to avoid unnecessary contact. (Seattle Post-Intelligencer)

Rick Neuheisel has put together a vastly improved staff on the same budget that Karl Dorrell had. (Los Angeles Daily News)

Yeah! UA has no major injuries! Tuitrauma must have stayed inside. All summer. (Tucson Citizen)
