A Thursday without a WSU game


Everyone in the Pac-10 has a game tonight, everyone except WSU and Washington, of course. Which means there are a lot of stories about everyone in the Pac-10, everyone except WSU and Washington, of course. Read on.


• Washington State: We had a few items today, including our Reggie Moore-as-former-UW-fan story and the no-Seattle-game short (third item). We also have a few more notes on our Moore blog post. … There’s a long interview with Ryan Leaf on Cougfan. … The Times’ Bud Withers had a short chat with former WSU coach Tony Bennett.


• Around the Pac-10: Washington has been able to find a third scorer in most games lately, and that’s taken pressure off Quincy Pondexter and Isaiah Thomas. … Interesting times in Eugene. There is pressure on athletic director Mike Bellotti, and a lot of it comes from the poor play of the basketball team, though the football team has picked up another major recruit. … UCLA’s basketball season might have been saved by a guy who wasn’t recruited by many. … The Beavers, with the same Pac-10 record as their archrivals, welcome USC tonight, with the Trojans saying they welcome Oregon State’s pressure. … Craig Robinson says that’s subterfuge, but we think it is a stratagem. … There are two Duke transfers making a big impact in the Pac-10, and they used to be roommates. … ASU is trying to let go of the Arizona loss. … Tavita Pritchard is coming to the rescue of another Stanford athletic team. Too bad the Cardinal aren’t playing USC tonight. … Another discussion about how bad the Pac-10 is.


• That’s all for now. We’ll be back as events warrant. Until then …
