A long, long Monday WSU post


We’re having some Internet problems at Casa Grippi, so the usual (virtual) trip around the West Coast is taking almost as long as a real one. So our morning post is not going to be filled with as many nuggets as usual. What the heck, it’s Monday, so you can’t see anyway. The eyes are too bloodshot. We’ll just run the post in bigger type, it will seem as long and you’ll thank us tomorrow. Read on.


• Washington State: Did you notice Deone Bucannon’s eight tackles Saturday were all solo? When a safety has that many solo tackles, it ain’t good. … Paul Wulff tackled the tackling problem and other stuff during his conference call yesterday, the basis, as it is each week, of our follow. … This is what Cougfan does so well, keeping folks abreast of recruiting news. … Some thoughts on Saturday’s crowd.


• Around the Pac-10: OK, so Ted Miller works his tail off on Sundays for He has his power rankings – Guess which school is No. 10? Too hard? Guess you’ll have to check the link – and what he learned from Saturday. … Bud Withers takes his weekly spin around the conference. … Chris Dufresne see the Pac-10 getting stronger. … And it measures up. … What the week meant for the conference. … Another look around the West Coast. … Washington: After the bye, not much, but if you really need a fix, we can send you to this Bob Condotta blog post. … Oregon State: Not only did the Beavers lose, they may have lost James Rodgers for a while to a concussion. With concussions, you just don’t know how long it will be. … Mike Riley had a lot to say afterward. … Oregon: Game Day is coming to Eugene for the first of many Pac-10 showdowns this year. … Cal: The Bears had a weekend to remember, and forget. … Stanford: As usual, members of the Cardinal football team earn high grades. … USC: Lane Kiffin hearts Jake Locker. … UCLA: At least one person is looking past WSU. But it’s not Rick Neuheisel. … Arizona State: Nothing really. … Arizona: The Wildcats’ bye week is welcome.


• That’s all for this morning. The Cougars practice late tonight and I expect at least a couple players to be sitting out. We’ll be back afterward. Until then …
