An early morning WSU post


Up early this morning to catch WSU’s basketball workout. Coach Ken Bone has to catch a plane to Los Angeles this afternoon for Pac-10 media day, so the Cougars are going at 6. With football and basketball practices conflicting, thought this would be a good day to watch. Now wondering what I was thinking. But I’m up, so I’m headed out the door. Read on.


• Washington State: This is really all I have time for before I leave. Here is our Pac-10 notebook and a link to my practice post from last night, which is full of news items. Also, we ran this wire story about Notre Dame and the trip to San Antonio. … Freelancer Howie Stalwick has this WSU notebook which is chock full of Notre Dame items. … Notre Dame’s home game road trip is the subject here as well. … Hey, in this story as well. … For actual football news, try this piece.

• UPDATE: Now that I have a few moments, I’ll pass on a note or two along with a link. … On the note side, Nik Koprivica is the Cougar player rep at tomorrow’s Pac-10 media day. But Koprivica is hobbled a little right now at practice with a groin issue. He just did conditioning and light shooting in the morning. … Everyone else seems healthy and all have taken steps in the past week. They are starting to get the idea of what coach Ken Bone is looking for from them. … The Times’ Bud Withers takes a look at what not being on TV means to WSU. … Conference-wise,’s Ted Miller wonders who will be the All-Pac-10 quarterback.


• That’s it for now. We’ll be back later, unless I fall asleep. Until then …
