Light news day around Pac-10


My guess is Monday morning’s post will be the lightest morning one of the week throughout football season. At least it will be if the pattern established today continues. As we scoured the web for news, there were two Pac-10 schools without a presence. If my math is correct, that’s 24 percent. Read on for our morning briefing.


• Washington State: We had our story from today’s Spokesman-Review that covered two areas: Sunday’s two practices and the departure of quarterback J.T. Levenseller. The sophomore will be granted his release, so he’ll be eligible to play next year at a Division I school and this year, if he wants, at any lower division school. … The Times took the Levenseller parts from the story and ran those. … CougFan’s report today is free, so here’s the link. And folks, that’s about it.

• Around the Pac-10: ESPN’s Ted Miller had an interesting post this morning, running down each conference school’s recent villain and its all-time villain. He has his choices. What are your’s for WSU? … Washington: Bob Condotta reports there is some disagreement concerning the bonus quarterback Jake Locker received from the Angels. Oregon State: It took me a while, but I found something out of Corvallis…. Oregon: Seems to be a little theme here. Two stories in three days on the Ducks’ backup quarterbacks. … Cal and Stanford: I knew you could guess which Pac-10 schools would not be represented. … USC: The Trojans’ punter has a tired leg. Probably because USC’s punter isn’t used to be called on all that much. And thanks Tom Floyd for the card. …UCLA: Reading this Chane Moline story brought to mind Jed Collins. A lot of similar things are said. … Arizona State: Just about every team in the nation has transfers sitting out. The Sun Devils happen to have a quarterback and a wide receiver. … Arizona: Give the Wildcats credit. They aren’t afraid to try wacky training aids.


• That’s it for this morning. With the Cougars getting the day off, we’re going to take some time as well. But we will be back this evening. Until then …
