As Pullman turns


FROM PULLMAN — Might make for some riveting midafternoon television, no? The drama continues here on the Palouse, where the first considerable snowfall of the season greeted us yesterday morning. And today, who knows? Read on.

Tuesdays are already long enough during football season, but with basketball duties kicking in, too, there's even more to do. We'll start by linking to today's story in the newspaper, along with our first look at Arizona State and a blog post recapping Mike Leach's comments yesterday (with some player video to boot). … If you want to take a look at the football operations building action item on this weekend's Board of Regents agenda, here you go. … Howie Stalwick has this story in the Kitsap Sun. … Bud Withers has a column in the Seattle Times. … From Arizona State: Apparently, there is a position on ASU's defense called the Devilbacker, and this guy plays it pretty well. Here's a replay of a live chat with ASU beat writer Doug Haller.

Around the Pac-12 … Washington is trying its big tight end on defense. … There's no decision yet on the return of Arizona's quarterback. … UCLA isn't forgetting its last win over USC, and neither are the Trojans. Cool story here about a long-ago game from this rivarly. … How did Cal's football program fall to where it is today? The Bears get a D-grade for their loss to Oregon. … Stanford gets a plus for beating Oregon State. … A standout on Oregon's offense could play some defense this week. … Oregon State isn't naming a starting quarterback yet. … Colorado has two more chances to escape infamy. … Utah's freshman quarterback is feeling the pressure.

In basketball action last night, Oregon held off Portland State, 80-69, and Stanford won its home opener, 81-68 over Cal State Fullerton.
