Finally, the WSU, Pac-10 links


After battling a balky internet connection – here that Comcast? It's been that way off and on for weeks – we finally got our links figured out. Not a lot of news this morning, but what we've found, we've passed on.

• Washington State: We received a nice e-mail last night explaining we had the line wrong in our first look post. The e-mailer was right. Misread the website. Sorry. It's fixed – with the official line the S-R uses – on the web now. ... Freelancer Howie Stalwick has a Bob Robertson feature in the New Tribune this morning and a notebook on Cougfan as well. ... There's a great statistical analysis of the quarterbacks' performances against Stanford on CougCenter. ... Out of Hawaii, this week's opponents, this story will make the players happy they playing at Qwest - if they weren't before. And WSU drops the 2011 game in the Islands. ... It was a productive recruiting weekend.

• Around the Pac-10:'s Ted Miller believes the Cougars and the Huskies will win this week. … Each week, after the games, Buster Sports Nick Daschel rates the Pac-10's coaches. ... Washington: The glow over Saturday's loss still hasn't faded. Jerry Brewer wonders what would have happened if the Dawgs had actually won. ... The secondary is undergoing change according to Tacoma's Todd Milles. ... Oregon State: The schedule must be weak when playing UNLV in week two is considered a huge step up. ... Oregon: Usually I don't do this, but with no Cal or Stanford news – again – I've got three, yes three, stories on the Ducks. They're all unique in their own way. There's the practice story we feel obligated to pass along, a Ken Goe column about the Oregon offensive woes and, finally, the best of the bunch, from longtime Register-Guard reporter Bob Clark, this column that takes a contrarian's view of the LeGarrette Blount suspension. ... Cal: One more day without news. ... Stanford: From here as well. ... USC: The Trojans must find a way to stop Terrelle Pryor, without opening other opportunities for the Buckeyes. ...UCLA: Just love the headline on this story. ... Arizona State: Surprisingly, I couldn't find anything. ... Arizona: After saying all week they would play both quarterbacks in the opener, the Wildcats didn't play Nick Foles a single down against Central Michigan.


• That's all for this morning. It's a busy day so we better get at it. We'll be back after practice. Until then …
