Pac-Tending 08-19-09




"We've had a couple instances where there were some hard feelings and the coaches didn't shake hands after the game. We think it is important for coaches to shake hands after the game - win lose or show - to show true sportsmanship and respect."

- AFCA executive director Grant Teaff, speaking the pre- and post-game handshake expected out of every college football coach in two weeks.



The 2009-10 championship season has begun at the Creek as two more pre-season polls were released in the Pac-10 - one for volleyball, naming Washington as the league champ, and one for women's soccer anointing Stanford as the league champ.

Meanwhile, at NCAA HQ, in collaboration with the American Football Coaches Association [AFCA], football teams are encouraged to exchange a pre-game handshake for games during the week of September 3-7.
