Some Saturday morning WSU links


If there was a flood of Pac-10 news following Thursday’s media day, then I guess you could say the reservoir has been drained, because there’s not a lot out there this morning. But we did find a few items of interest, so read on.


• As usual, we start with news of interest to WSU aficionados, with our story concerning the upcoming Pac-10 expansion and how athletic director Bill Moos would like to see that play out. Though it seems as if the ADs took some steps, they were just the first in a long journey that isn’t too contentious now but could get chippy down the road. The Oregonian’s John Hunt also filed this report about the meeting. … The Ducks finished up their summer conditioning drills Friday with the players scattering for a week before reporting for fall camp. The same is happening all over, including Pullman – where safety LeAndre Daniels joked it is a week of getting your life back. By the way, for more from WSU, check out Joe Nickell’s blog. There are some behind-the-scenes items from media day along with other news. … A couple looks back at media day, with’s Lisa Horne purporting to be debunking myths about the Pac-10 and Arizona Republic’s Doug Haller examining ASU’s quarterback battle. … Staying in Arizona, where other issues are taking center stage, the NCAA says UA’s long NCAA appearance streak has been cut down thanks to recent sanctions. I’m sorry, but just because the Wildcats vacated some wins, they still played in the NCAA tournament for 25 consecutive years. That’s history. You can’t change that. … Finally, the LA Times’ Bill Dwyre takes Pete Carroll to task for not staying at USC and helping the Trojans heal from the Reggie Bush mess.


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