A week nearly gone for WSU


FROM PULLMAN — At about 5:45 p.m. today, Washington State will have a full week — seven days, that is — of football practices behind them. What better way to celebrate the occasion than with links?

Our story in today's newspaper focuses on the play of JUCO transfer Justin Sagote, who looks to be a big part of the linebacker competition this season. We also blogged about yesterday's practice, as usual. … WSU's linebackers aren't concerned with outside perceptions. … Also, a note passed along by the WSU sports information staff the other day that I forgot to include in yesterday's story: more than 5,000 single-game tickets were sold by the WSU ticket office over the weekend. … And we have a basketball note for you, one we have also been meaning to pass along after tweeting about it — former operations assistant Tim Marrion is leaving the program to become an assistant coach at San Jose State.

Around the Pac-12 … An Arizona receiver is coming back from a lacerated kidney. … Arizona State's Junior Onyeali would like the chance to speak with Dennis Erickson again. Which puts him at odds with most of Moscow. … This season is the last chance for UCLA's seniors to make something of their careers. Then again, they were Pac-12 South champions(ish) last year. … USC wants Robert Woods to slow down, which would be fine with the rest of the Pac-12. … Taking a look at a couple of players on Washington's revamped (they hope) defense. … Colorado needs to get something out of their tight end position this year. … Utah regained its best hope for a starting left end. … A notebook from California's camp. … Oregon State's defensive coordinator is trying to end his unit's two-year slump. … Carson York, a local product, hopes to recover from knee surgery in time to help the Ducks this year. An Oregon cornerback is almost making a name for himself.

All for now.
