Back to the grind for WSU


FROM PULLMAN — Washington State practices another three times this week before departing for Salt Lake City. But we've got other plans. Read on.

Today's practice is the last we'll see this week. That's because Pac-12 men's basketball media day is being held on Thursday in San Francisco, so we're headed to the bay area tomorrow night. On Thursday, we'll plan on a live chat starting early in the morning and running through the end of the podium session, a total of a few hours. We'll have notes, quotes and the like throughout the day. … On the content front, we had this notebook in today's newspaper, this first look at Utah, this blog post summarizing Mike Leach's comments and this post with some news about a player committing to the WSU basketball team. … Howie Stalwick has this notebook in the Kitsap Sun. … From Utah: Officials are searching to see if a Utes kick returner set a national record last week against California. Utah is sticking with its streamlined offense.

Around the Pac-12 … Washington is running out of time to get its offense going. … Oregon State is switching quarterbacks again. … A pair of Oregon linebackers are questionable to play this week against USC. … Another week, another F-grade for a California performance. … Stanford fared better, but not great. … Never thought I'd read a story about a debate over which L.A. quarterback is better. The Trojans are trying to cut down on penalties, but not succeeding. … UCLA is preparing for Arizona's scheme, not its personnel. … Colorado doesn't know who its quarterback will be this week. … Matt Scott has been cleared to play against UCLA. … A freshman at Arizona State is already showing his leadership qualities.
