Another Monday with WSU


FROM PULLMAN — And a relatively quiet one on the Palouse, considering all the goings-on around the college football landscape (read: bowl selections). Read on for links.

We do have one WSU-related link for you — it's by Scott Johnson of the Everett Herald, and it's about how social media changes the way college athletes publicly address the way they're treated by coaches. … The bowl schedules were finalized yesterday, and there were no big surprises in the Pac-12 — Stanford will play Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl; Oregon will play Kansas State in the Fiesta Bowl; Oregon State will play Texas in the Alamo Bowl; USC will play Georgia Tech in the Sun Bowl; UCLA will play Baylor in the Holiday Bowl; Washington will play Boise State in the Las Vegas Bowl; Arizona State will play Navy in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl; and Arizona will play Nevada in the New Mexico Bowl. Here's a rundown of all the dates and times. … More information on California's coaching search. … And on Colorado's.

In basketball news … Washington came back and held off Cal State Fullerton, 74-72. … Another bad loss for the Pac-12: Wisconsin blasted California, 81-56, in Madison. … And Stanford beat Denver, 71-58. … Colorado's coach wants his players to get tough after a road loss to Wyoming. … Arizona's new point guard is making shots but struggling to take care of the ball.

Ken Bone will meet with reporters later today to discuss Wednesday's game against Gonzaga. We'll be back afterward.
