Sunday morning links from WSU

COUGARS

It's Sunday morning, the day your daily newspaper swells to the size of the roast we're having for dinner. And, because it is the Sunday before college football season begins, those papers are full of stories about Wossamotta U. We link those stories, though, sadly, Bullwinkle is out with an injury.


••••••••••

• Washington State: We start, as we probably should if we want to stay employed the next four months, with our story in today's S-R. It's an analytical look at the Cougars, built around a few awards. … We also had a post after practice yesterday. … The Seattle Times has its Pac-12 preview section in the paper today, with this Bud Withers' story on the receivers. … And that's about it from WSU today.

•••

• Around the Pac-12: Withers welcomes the newcomers to the Pac-12. … San Jose's Jon Wilner tries to scope out the BCS bowls. So does the LA Times' Chris Dufresne. … Washington: It looks as if Spokane's Bishop Sankey will carry the ball quite often in the opener. … Keith Price is in the Gene Bartow chair this season, trying to replace a legend. … The Huskies can look to the past for inspiration next week. … Oregon State: The Beavers are banged up. But they still have hope. … Here's a quick look at OSU. … Oregon: For all their success recently, the Ducks still need to win the big one. … LaMichael James is on the cusp of becoming Oregon's all-time leading rusher. … California: A walk-on is fitting in at linebacker. … Stanford: Nothing this morning. … Colorado: New coach Jon Embree is installing a new attitude. … Fantasyland is not a place sports writers should live. … Utah: The Utes have skill, but not experience, at the skill positions. … USC: A big guy has a big family. … UCLA: Will too many cooks ruin the offense? … Arizona State: A season preview built around coach Dennis Erickson. … The Sun Devils' schedule plays out darn well. … Arizona: The Wildcats are battling ASU and Oregon State for the title of “Most Banged Up Team” in the conference.

• That's all for today. Sundays are family day. Headed out to see this movie my two sisters made about me (just kidding, though they would endorse the title). Until later …
