Mid-season Monday


FROM PULLMAN — Can you believe that after Washington State plays Oregon State five days from now, the season will officially be at its midway point? Well, it will be for the Cougars, anyway. It's always midseason at SportsLink, so read on for our usual notes and links.

For today's newspaper, we wrote about coach Mike Leach finding the positive in Washington State's loss to Oregon. We also posted some additional thoughts on the blog late last night. … Howie Stalwick has this notebook in the Kitsap Sun. … Is Oregon State, WSU's next opponent, for real after starting 3-0?

Around the Pac-12 … Washington's win over Stanford landed the Huskies in the AP top 25, giving the Pac-12 six ranked teams this week. … Here are 10 moments that made the difference in Arizona's loss to Oregon State. … Arizona State will put an emphasis on healing during its bye week. … UCLA's quarterback needs to learn how to run the right way. … USC needs to get its passing game back on track. … It will be an historic visit for USC to Salt Lake City this week. The Utes have done well following byes under Kyle Whittingham. … Colorado is limping into its bye week, much the way it limps into most weeks. … Catching up with Oregon.

That's it for now, but we'll be back later from WSU's media availability.
