Stanford coach Jim Harbaugh drew questions on USC and its role as the Pac-10 champion.
"We're ready to kick the door in on this new season."
(can anyone challenge USC for the Pac-10 title)
"Yes, there will be nine teams challenging USC for the conference title."
(what will it take?)
"It's going to be mighty men who win this conference this year.
"It's a more physical conference that's evolved."
(on RB Toby Gerhart's future being in football or baseball)
"Personally, I think his future is as an NFL running back. I have a brother who is a head coach in the league who has told me so."
