A light WSU, Pac-10 morning


Since I've been doing this morning post, I've never seen the web so lacking in Pac-10 news. Or had more trouble getting out on it in the first place. I'm using my backup connection because the high speed isn't working. Weird. Anyhow, found some stuff, so read on.

• Washington State: There was some pretty big news in Coug-land yesterday afternoon, which we covered in this story and post. What are your thoughts on the quarterback decision.

• Around the Pac-10: There are a lot of schools that won't be covered today, but we do have a couple items that pertain to the conference as a whole. There's this column from yesterday's Arizona Republic I saved just in case we were light. ... There's also this Pac-10 primer from the Sacramento Bee. ... Washington: There's little available, as the Huskies took the day off, so here is Nick Daschel's UW season preview. ... Oregon State and Oregon: Nothing I could find this morning. ... Cal and Stanford: What do you think? ... USC: With the injury to Ronald Johnson – as far as I can tell, no top-10 caliber program in the nation has been hit with more injuries thus far this season than USC – the spotlight shines on the Trojan receivers. ...UCLA: Though the Bruins' quarterback play was awful last year, they expect improvement with Kevin Prince. However, the former UW-commit hasn't played in a long, long time. ... Arizona State: Another no-show. ... Arizona: The Wildcats have three major concerns and they all revolve around injuries.


• That's what we have for this morning. The Cougars don't practice today, so all we'll have later is our first look at Stanford and a few notes. Until then …
