A slow Monday


FROM PULLMAN — Things seem to be moving a little slower today. Maybe that's because it's nearing mid-April and there isn't much college football or basketball news to report. Maybe it's because everyone's full from their Easter meals. Whatever the reason, we don't have much to read today. But read on anyway.

WSU had Sunday off, and won't practice again until tomorrow. Our only Cougar-related item is this video interview with Bobby Ratliff we passed along on the blog yesterday. … Spent part of Sunday watching the final round of the Masters, which I'm sure Vince will detail with far more thought in his space. But I wanted to note that Bubba Watson strikes me as the first  real people's champion in some time — and by that, I mean he clinched his victory by nailing an impossible shot from the pine straw to within about 15 feet of the cup. How many of us have tried a similar shot from a similar lie at our local muni? … Wouldn't you know it, we've got a WSU/Masters tie-in. CougCenter noted that the College GameDay tradition of waving the WSU flag made its way to Augusta National on Sunday.

Around the Pac-12 … Washington's Kasen Williams could be a difference-maker this season. … A look at Arizona's busy spring. The Wildcats picked up a basketball commitment. … Colorado's coaching staff remains intact. … Andre Roberson takes a long-term view of the NBA draft.

That's all for now.
