Thursday morning from WSU


Another morning, another morning post. There aren't many things in the universe this regular. Now the quality of each one, that's up and down more often than United Airlines. But, as folks like to say these days, it is what it is. Read on.


• Washington State: It's quiet in Pullman today. Too quiet? Maybe it's because the wind died down overnight and the bushes next to the apartment are no longer beating a Gene Krupa drumbeat on the wall. But it's also quiet in the news, with our piece on WSU needing another strong finish and a CougCenter post on the receivers the only Cougar-related items we can find. We also had our Pac-12 picks in the paper today and we passed along the Andrew Furney news (a Lou Groza semifinalist) last night along with some practice notes.


• Around the Pac-12:'s Ted Miller let's us know what to watch this weekend and makes his predictions. … Jon Wilner has his conference rankings. … Washington: The Ducks' tight end is a load and so are their special teams. … Oregon State: Mike Riley speaks on Andrew Luck's behalf. Who will speak for Riley? … Oregon: As Husky Stadium gets ready to close for its facelift, everyone has memories. Will Darron Thomas remember this start fondly? … California: Though Zach Maynard is embattled, he's still the Bears quarterback and his teammates have his back. … Stanford: Doing the little things the right way can keep you on the field. … Colorado: A transfer quarterback still can't wait for his turn to lead the Buffs. … Utah: The Utah defense is tough and each week a different player steps up. … USC: Despite having an exceptional season, Robert Woods is looking for redemption. … UCLA: A Bruin can't believe how lucky he is. … Arizona State: The Sun Devils are waiting on a contract extension for Dennis Erickson. … Arizona: Mike Leach was in Tucson yesterday and yes, he would like the UA job.


• That's all for this morning. We'll be back after practice, as usual, before we start the trip to the Bay Area. Until then …
