Cold day at WSU


As we kick off Dad’s Weekend in Pullman, the WSU stories are hard to find – sort of like a warm day in mid-November. But we did unearth a couple, along with the usual Pac-10 items. Read on.


• Washington State: We decided to take a look at the play of Myron Beck, a safety-turned-linebacker-turned-safety. Beck has been switching back-and-forth between the two positions most of the season, filling in wherever the WSU defense has a need. … The weather remains a topic of discussion, with, in LA, an emphasis on the cuss part. … The Tacoma News Tribune ran freelancer Howie Stalwick’s basketball preview today.

• Around the Pac-10: The Times’ Bud Withers has his picks for this week’s games. … So does Buster Sports’ Nick Daschel. … Washington: Safety Jason Wells is just happy to be back on the field. … Oregon State: Believe it or not, the Beavers’ home schedule ends Saturday. Which means it is senior day. … Oregon: What would a basketball team, made up of Duck football players, look like? … California: Take a class, lose your starting spot. … Stanford: The importance of the USC game speaks well for the Pac-10. … USC: The Trojans get tight end Anthony McCoy back this week. …UCLA: The Bruins receive a commitment from a Southern California running back. … Don’t expect WSU to get many chances to return kickoffs. … Arizona State: Usual starting quarterback Danny Sullivan won’t be able to be the backup this week due to an injury. … Arizona: The Wildcats believe this week is the true Big Game.


• That’s it for this morning. We’ll return before the basketball game with some thoughts. Until then …
