Live chat today, mid-week links


FROM PULLMAN — Later this afternoon — at 1 p.m., for those of you interested in details — we'll be chatting on the blog, as we usually do. But now, we'll be passing along links, like we usually do. So read on, like you usually do.

For today's newspaper story, we took a bit of a different angle, asking a few Pac-12 coaches about their philosophies when it comes to scripting the first 15 or so offensive plays of each game. We have our usual practice recap on the blog. … Missed this notebook from Howie Stalwick yesterday. … From Oregon State: Looks like it could be a sellout this weekend in Corvallis. OSU receiver Brandin Cooks is being recognized for his strong start. A bit of controversy when it comes to the colors worn by Beavers fans.

Around the Pac-12 … Oregon benefits from in-house competition, especially on its defensive line. … Arizona needs to run the ball better. … Arizona State's coach isn't shy about calling timeouts. … Stanford isn't dwelling on its loss to Washington, and David Shaw isn't interested in questions about whether he might replace his quarterback. … California's offense has been going the wrong way. … Utah is preparing for USC's explosiveness. … A Trojans defensive back wants to snag a few more passes. … A UCLA player returned to practice after missing some time due to a scooter accident. … A Colorado tight end has his mind on his family. … Former Oregon player Justin Wilcox now guides the Washington defense.

Check back at 1 p.m. for our live chat.
