Live chat on Day 1 of Life After Twitter


FROM PULLMAN — In a world now void of tweets from WSU football players, we soldier on. And we shall tweet. Read on.

It's Wednesday, which means we'll have our weekly live chat today at 1 p.m. … We wrote a couple of items on the aforementioned Twitter subject last night — this short story in today's newspaper, and this blog post with some notes from practice. We also took a look this morning at the road ahead for the Pac-12's BCS contenders. … As mentioned last night, athletic director Bill Moos seemed a little frustrated by the whole ordeal. He used the words “disappointing” and “vulgar” to describe some of the tweets he's seen by players. The good news, Moos said, is that no players have been using Twitter to insult or complain about teammates or coaches. But he was clear in saying he supported Leach's decision, and that it's simply another area of the program that requires some cleaning. … Sign of the times: my first thought when the decision was announced was, “Wonder what the reaction will be on Twi … ah, right.” … Sportspress Northwest adds some social media insight with this story. … From Stanford: The Cardinal's offensive linemen have remained relatively healthy this season. Stanford hopes to have a little more success against this spread offense than the last one it faced.

Around the Pac-12 … Arizona doesn't have a ton of big-name recruits on its roster. … Arizona State wants to improve its run defense. … Lane Kiffin, that ol' trickster, is up to his ol' tricks. … UCLA's offensive coordinator knows Arizona State's quarterback well. … At least one Colorado player still thinks the Buffaloes can turn the corner. … California and Utah are alike — both of them are struggling offensively. … Jeff Tedford doesn't want to talk about the Bears' rushing woes anymore (wonder if he'd talk about the WSU game?) … Oregon State coaches are enjoying the ride this season. … Kenjon Barner's Heisman stock is rising at Oregon. … Washington's defense wants to bounce back this week.

That's all for now. See you at 1 p.m.
