Live chat, Sankey and links


FROM KANSAS CITY — Actually, by the time this posts, I should be landing in Denver en route to Spokane. We'll still hold our live chat at 1 p.m., though, and will be at practice later this afternoon. First, we have a bunch of links to get to, so read on.

A reminder that we'll still have our weekly live chat today at 1 p.m. … In today's newspaper, you can read about WSU's loss to Texas A&M last night in basketball. You can also read about Bishop Sankey, UW's running back who was once committed to WSU. On the blog, we have our tale of the tape from last night's basketball game. … The Seattle Times also wrote about Bishop Sankey. So did the News Tribune. … Bud Withers writes that a knee injury to Travis Long would be a sad ending to a great career. … The AP has a story from WSU's basketball game. … Howie Stalwick has this feature on Jeff Tuel, as well as an item about Drew Bledsoe. … More tough talk from Mike Leach. … CougCenter looks at UW's running game. … And lots of other Apple Cup links from Bob Condotta. … Nine WSU players were named to the Pac-12 All Academic team.

Around the Pac-12 … The big news yesterday was California officially firing Jeff Tedford, who had been the Pac-12's longest-tenured coach. Now begins the search for his replacement. … Stanford's top linebacker says he still isn't 100 percent. … Guarantee or not, USC's backup quarterback is confident heading into his team's game against Notre Dame. … Nobody's laughing at UCLA's Eric Kendricks anymore. … Arizona State's quarterback finally gets his chance to beat Arizona. … Rich Rodriguez's first year at Arizona has been a big-time success. … Oregon State knows there's no magic formula for beating Oregon. … Oregon's center is made more important by its offensive style. … OSU is still hoping for the return of an offensive lineman. … Colorado knows it's not easy to buy out a fired coach. … Utah is still smarting over its “debacle” of a defensive performance against Arizona.

In basketball action … USC beat Texas, 59-53. … UCLA beat Georgia, 60-56. … Arizona State beat Cornell, 64-53.

Check back at 1 p.m. for our chat.
