Some stories to pass along on a Tuesday


Nothing huge to pass along this morning, but enough second-level news that it's worth putting together a post, so read on.


• Well, there is one decent-sized piece of Pac-12 news (as an aside, I wonder when I will quit having to backtrack after typing “Pac-10” instead of “Pac-12?”) and it comes from Tucson. Before we pass along that link, though, let's pass along this one from yesterday by San Jose's Jon Wilner. It's a look at next year's Pac-12 basketball race, with Arizona picked third (Wilner slots the Cougars 11th, citing the loss of Klay Thompson and DeAngelo Casto, a valid observation) behind Cal and UCLA. Now that's somewhat moot because Arizona is losing its starting point guard, MoMo Jones, who announced last night he's transferring somewhere closer to his New York home. The Wildcats have a couple of talented guard recruits coming in, but Jones' departure came as a surprise. … If you read the Sports Illustrated piece on college basketball recruiting and you ever had to figure out NCAA rules concerning said practice, then you might have been as shocked as I was that some Pac-12 assistant coaches were on the record talking about recruitable athletes. But they were. And now it might be a problem. … This is a bit old, but we didn't post yesterday so we pass it along now. An Oregon State football player is in trouble with the law. … Former WSU athletic director Jim Sterk had an exceptional year in San Diego. … And finally, we have something for you we can't remember having been able to share for a few years. A publication picking Washington State football anywhere but last in the conference for the upcoming season.


• And that's all for this morning. We'll be back if events warrant. Until then …
