The start-your-week WSU links


It’s Monday morning, which means many of you are going back to work after a more-than-likely fun weekend. For the Washington State football players, it means a day off, their first since fall practice started nine days ago. For us writers, it means the same thing, though first we have to get through this morning assignment. Make one click and you’ll find the usual assortment of links, though it will be a little thinner than usual. Sunday was a day of rest among much of the Pac-10. Read on.


• Washington State: We had our story on the infusion of talent at the cornerback position, a group that actually seems to have some Pac-10 speed in the mix. Last night we had an early version of the piece along with some more notes. … How do other schools’ fans see WSU? Well, this blog post give you an idea. There is actually some trepidation. … And, I’m sorry to say, that’s all I could fine this morning that was free.


• Around the Pac-10: The Times’ Bud Withers is doing his annual spin around the conference. Today he has a look at UCLA. Sunday he covered USC. … Washington: We had the news yesterday about the season-ending injury to WSU’s Jordan Pu’u Robinson. The Huskies lost a touted freshman, running back Deontae Cooper, this weekend to the same injury. It’s too bad for both players. … Oregon State: Nothing new here today. … Oregon: Ditto here. … Cal and Stanford: The Bears moved practice to a local high school and that made one beat writer very happy. … USC: Kennedy Pola sits in the eye of the storm. … UCLA: Hey, a cornerbacks story. Just proves that old adage, heavyset men think alike. … Arizona State: It’s time to give the Sun Devils an early report card. … Arizona: The Wildcats will be relying on the true freshman long snapper.


• That’s all the news and links for this morning. We’ll be back if news warrants. Until then …
