FROM PULLMAN — Later this afternoon, we're joining a media contingent on a tour of the renovated press box/premium seating structure at Martin Stadium you may have heard something about. We'll pass along plenty from that, but first, there are links to read.
Our story in today's newspaper gives an update on what's happening with the next Martin Stadium project — the new football operations building, for which Bill Moos had hoped to gain approval at this week's Board of Regents meeting.

We have a short post about practice, too. … Bud Withers has a feature on freshman receiver Gabe Marks. … Tim Booth of the AP has a lengthy feature on Mike Leach. … The Sports Network has a WSU preview on the Charlotte Observer's site, though they're a bit confused about WSU's running back situation, Matt Goetz's new primary position and a certain defensive lineman that is no longer on the roster. … A BYU fan site wonders about WSU's defense.
Around the Pac-12 … It's time for Washington receiver Kasen Wiliams to step up. Taking a look at UW's offensive line. … Arizona has a linebacker whose first name is Shadow. I think that's pretty cool. … Arizona State is trying a receiver at cornerback. … Colorado needs its boosters to step up to improve their facilities. … Utah has a player who is rather large. … A productive USC linebacker is moving from the outside to the inside. … UCLA's receivers coach is keeping things light. … Oregon's quarterback candidates have stated their cases, so to speak, and now the waiting begins. … Oregon State announced its starting running back. … A BYU receiver is still a little miffed over the departure of quarterback Jake Heaps.
All for now.
