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 …
