Bay Area buzz changing without Luck

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- The buzz in the Bay Area is shifting this fall with Andrew Luck gone.

The first evidence of that came Monday when Stanford, California and San Jose State players and coaches gathered in front of fewer writers and even fewer cameras in downtown San Francisco for the fifth annual Bay Area media luncheon. The rest will sink in when fall practices begin later this week and games kick off next month.

Stanford has a quarterback competition that could take just that long to resolve. Cal is moving back into remodeled Memorial Stadium -- and might need every day left for construction to be completed -- after calling the Giants' AT&T Park home last year, and Mike MacIntyre is transforming San Jose State from laughingstock to legitimate winner.
