In its never-ending quest for more money and more TV exposure, the Pac-12 Conference is taking dead aim at something that used to be considered unfathomable - playing college football on Friday nights.

Roger Bake, then the second in command of the California Interscholastic Federation, the state's governing body of high school athletics, remembers that concerns were expressed.

Rarely will they acknowledge the existence of an investigation. Now several recent incidents - all in Southern California - have dragged them into the spotlight, raising questions about how they police athletes and coaches on campuses nationwide. In one of the cases, at UCLA, the lead investigator has been accused of prejudging UCLA freshman Shabazz Muhammad before all of the facts were gathered.

Some can't-miss NFL prospects simply miss. Every so often, a "who's he?" becomes a who's who. Pro scouts aren't always on the mark, but they are paid to use their keen judgment to project which college football players will succeed at the next level, and those opinions carry weight. There will be plenty of NFL scouts in attendance Saturday when UCLA plays host to USC at the Rose Bowl. This week, at the request of The Times, three NFL scouts opened their notebooks and anonymously shared their thoughts on the professional futures of some of the top Bruins and Trojans.
