Injuries strike Pac-10 teams


COUGARS

Washington State begins its week of practice this morning at 9 and we’ll be there. But before we get to that, let’s take our spin around the West Coast this morning. Follow the link.

••••••••••

• Washington State: Our Then and Now feature in today’s S-R was about former Cougar Ed Tingstad, now the team doctor. … Oregonian college football writer Ken Goe takes a quick look at WSU. … CougCenter examines the defensive line. … And Howie Stalwick features Kevin Lopina in a story that ran in the News Tribune.

• Around the Pac-10: New Pac-10 commissioner Larry Scott was in Pullman yesterday, part of his get-to-know-the-conference tour. He also came up to Spokane and talked with John Blanchette, who filed this column. … Our theme today is going to be injuries, so it’s appropriate that Nick Daschel examines the guy each team can least afford to lose. What do you think of his WSU pick? … Washington: The Huskies need kicker Eirk Folk to come through. … It seems your resume isn’t all that important to Steve Sarkisian. … Oregon State: OK, we said the theme was injuries. No one had a bigger one than the Beavers, losing junior wide receiver Darrell Catchings for the year with a broken bone in his right hand. He’ll be replaced by Damola Adeniji. … Oregon: Nate Costa, who has been injured enough for five guys, shined in the Ducks’ scrimmage. … Cal and Stanford: We need help here. Rarely are we able to find any news. And today wasn’t one of those rare days. … USC: Back to the injuries. Arguably the best center in the nation will be on the sidelines for a few weeks. The bad breaks are starting to add up for the Trojans. …UCLA: Norm Chow can’t be happy with all the picks his quarterbacks are throwing. … Arizona State: It’s time for quarterback Danny Sullivan to step up. At least the Arizona Republic columnist thinks so. … Arizona: The Wildcats would just like it if one of their quarterbacks would step up.

• That’s it for this morning. We’ll put up some highlights after the first practice. Until then …
