Wednesdays with WSU


Wednesday morning is always a big day for links and today is no different. So instead of wasting your time with my inane drivel and inadvertent typos (and redundant redundancies), we’ll get right to them. Read on.


• Washington State: We’ll start with John Blanchette’s column asking “why not” when assessing WSU’s chances of winning the Pac-10. Really, with the conference so muddled, why not? … There’s an Associated Press story from Ken Bone’s press conference yesterday. I will caution you that there is a factual mistake concerning the ASU game.


• Around the Pac-10: Today seems to be the day to write about the weird nature of the Pac-10 race, ranging from a notebook or two in Arizona to some thoughts out of Tacoma. … What’s up with the Huskies? Percy Allen had to ask after last weekend. … What’s up with Stanford (in a good way)? Jon Wilner had to ask. … Ernie Kent had an awful few days last week and the problem wasn’t his Ducks’ play on Sunday, though that couldn’t have helped. … Oregon State is finally back home after two weeks of conference play. … A couple UCLA stories, one about how difficult practice was and one about the key freshmen. … Finally, we switch gears, and sports, to football. With Pete Carroll now get his caffeine in Seattle, the Trojans hire Lane Kiffin. Didn’t Al Davis use to coach at USC? Maybe he can return as the offensive coordinator. No, Kiffin is talking to Norm Chow about that spot. … The news didn’t sit well with Bill Plaschke, who wrote this blistering column.


• That’s it for this morning. We’ll be back as events warrant. Until then …
