2012 All Pac-12 Picks for Tight Ends: What Is a Fourier Transform?
Jason O. Watson-US PRESSWIRE

A Fourier [foor-ee-ey] transform is a mathematical function that expresses the function of time as a function of frequency.

But at UCLA, it is Joseph Fauria [foor-ee-ey]. He is providing an important function for the Bruins - one that expresses points as a function of wins.

Every time the Bruins get into a third-and-long situation, Fauria hauls in a 12-yard pass for a first down! The code for third-down efficiency at UCLA is 'Fauria.' Joseph Fauria is also the pick for First Team All-Pac-12 Tight Ends.

Washington's Austin Seferian-Jenkins was an All-Pac-12 Honorable Mention last year; however, he will climb to Second Team in 2012.

USC’s Randall Telfer also was an All-Pac-12 Honorable Mention. Telfer would surpass Seferian-Jenkins if he did not split time with USC's other exceptional tight end Xavier Grimble.

Here is a quick look at the preseason picks for the best Pac-12 tight ends.
