Linking to Vegas


FROM PULLMAN — Listen, here's the thing — if you can't spot the sucker in your first half-hour at the table, you are the sucker. But there are no suckers in our morning links. Read on.

(FYI, there's no sound until about the 4:03 mark in the Monroe video)

OK, yeah, I quoted the movie “Rounders” to start off our morning post. But with a trip to Las Vegas awaiting the Washington State football team, it seemed  appropriate enough. … Our notebook in today's newspaper leads with an update on WSU's quarterback situation. We also have this first look at UNLV, an updated depth chart for WSU, a post with some practice details and a post about Andrew Furney's newfound celebrity. … Howie Stalwick has this notebook. … The Cougars picked up a verbal commitment from a California running back yesterday. Numbers and charts and things from CougCenter. … 

Around the Pac-12 … An Arizona linebacker is giving up football after problems with concussions. The Wildcats want to keep things in perspective and forget about their wins. … An Arizona State running back is trying his hand at defense. … UCLA's freshman safety made the most of a start against Nebraska. … Matt Barkley — and USC — are sick of losing to Stanford. … The Cardinal get a B-plus for their effort against Duke. California gets a D against Southern Utah. … Can Colorado kick its road woes? Or any woes? … Bad news for Utah yesterday, as quarterback Jordan Wynn's shoulder injuries have forced him to give up football. … Also bad news for Oregon, as two senior defensive standouts are done for the year with knee injuries. … Steve Sarkisian wants to puke over the way his Washington team played last week.
