WSU news isn’t hard to find


We got a little sidetracked this morning listening to a couple of sports podcasts. Hard to believe what can be said on the radio in Passaic, New Jersey can be heard in Pullman, Washington … or Cairo, Egypt for that matter. And so can whatever is written. Strange world we live in. Read on.


• Washington State: Though I don’t think anything linked here will be read in Cairo (maybe not Pullman either), here’s what we’ve got. … Our story on freshman walk-on Jared Byers, who has filled a hole at fullback for the Cougars recently. … Also, we have our Pac-10 picks. … And that’s it for items out of the Cougar camp this morning. If you want more notes, check out this post.

• Around the Pac-10:’s Ted Miller has his picks for the weekend and things to watch. … Buster Sports Nick Daschel says Autzen Stadium has nothing on old Husky Stadium for noise. … The Pac-10 has a bunch of freshmen running around like lost chickens. They’re not looking for Humanities 101, they’re carrying the football. … Washington: With a lack of depth comes a lack of excellent special teams play. … Oregon State: The secondary will get tested once again. … Oregon: If you read just one link today, make it this George Schroeder column. … California: Oregon boy moves to California, grows beard. Big deal. Bill Walton did it the other way years ago. … Stanford: Sorry, nothing. … USC: The offense has to get going, and it won’t be easy this week. …UCLA: The injury bug visits Westwood again. … Arizona State: More changes for the Sun Devils at quarterback. … Arizona: The Wildcats add another weapon to their offense, as if the Pac-10 leaders needed any more against Washington State.


• That’s all for this morning. We’ll be back after practice with notes. Until then …
