WSU’s loss to UCLA, the day after


One thing I hate about the middle of the month is all the bills for the end start to arrive. Open an envelope, cry a little. One thing I like about Sundays is all the stories from Saturday’s games. I’m going to ignore the former and get to the latter. Read on.


• Washington State: Let’s get right to the news items. You can read the long versions of my game story and notebook here. There was less to read in the paper – space limitations and all that – so we’ll keep you on the blog. … We also had the statistics, the scoring and my grades in the paper. … And, finally, there are Chris Anderson’s exceptional photos. … Freelancer Howie Stalwick had this notebook in the Kitsap Sun and a game story in the Olympian. … The Associated Press story appeared in the News Tribune.

• Around the Pac-10:’s Ted Miller hands out his helmet stickers. … Washington: When we have a chance, we try to find good columns to read. We found this one. … Oregon State: The Beavers are two wins away from having a great shot at the Rose Bowl. And remember, they play in Pullman next Saturday. … Oregon: The Ducks are two wins from a Rose Bowl berth after handling ASU easily. … California: OK, we can officially give up trying to understand the Bears. … Stanford: Wow. Another column worth reading. Actually, don’t miss this one. … USC: Pete Carroll’s first November defeat comes with a record attached. …UCLA: It’s come to this. The Bruins were able to use players that have never been on a field before. … The early interceptions set the tone. … Another game story. … Arizona State: True freshman Brock Osweiler gets his first start in Eugene and is knocked from the game early. Sound familiar? … Arizona: Another freaky pass play dooms the Wildcats.


• That’s all for this morning. We’ll have our look back and follow available for your this evening. Until then …
