What were we talking about? Oh, ya, the WSU win over Stanford and the muddled state of Pac-10 basketball. Well, there’s not much more to say about the former until Ken Bone’s teleconference this morning. But there is a little bit to chew over concerning the latter, especially compared to yesterday morning when there was basically a barren landscape. Read on.
• Washington State: As we said, yesterday was pretty barren, though Cougfan did report over the weekend defensive tackle Quayshawne Buckley has changed his mind again and expects to be qualified and enrolled in WSU for summer school. We’ll see. Also, for what it’s worth, WSU has moved up the Scout.com recruiting rankings. … That’s about it until later this morning. We’ll be at Bone’s teleconference and will post a quick update here on his thoughts.
• Around the Pac-10: Washington took care of home court last weekend – something WSU came up six points from doing – and that earned Quincy Pondexter the Pac-10 player-of-the-week award. … Here is one Pac-10 ranking. And, if you’re interested in the only ranking that truly matters, you can find the standings here. … The Oregonian’s Mike Tokito thinks Oregon State needs to mover now to lock up Craig Robinson, so the school doesn’t lose him a la WSU and Tony Bennett. Sorry, but when Bennett decided to leave, he left. Nothing could keep him in Pullman. Same with Robinson or any coach. They hold all the cards. … Another Pac-10 ranking - and a great Kevin O’Neill quote. … Lute Olson has some fond memories of Mac Court. … A couple of football links, one on the stability of Pac-10 programs currently and one on the best Pac-10 players of the past decade (fell free to disagree with both lists if you want).
• That’s it for this morning. As I said, we’ll be back around 11:30 or so. Until then …
