Seattle Game talk, plus links


FROM PULLMAN — Lots to link to today, beginning with our story providing player thoughts on playing this week's home game in Seattle. Let's get to it.

Here's our story from today's newspaper, which passes along player comments on the location of Saturday's game against Oregon. We also have our Pac-12 picks, a recap of yesterday's live chat, our pick 'em contest (remember, UW and Stanford play tonight, so get your picks in soon) and some details from last night's practice. … Bud Withers has a feature on WSU linebacker Cyrus Coen, the nephew of legendary Cougar quarterback Jack Thompson. From Oregon: the Ducks are using a number of young receivers early in the season.

There's one Pac-12 game tonight …

Stanford (3-0, 1-0 Pac-12) at Washington (2-1, 0-0 Pac-12), 6 p.m. (ESPN) — Stanford's quarterback is facing his first road test. Washington hopes for a better result against the Cardinal this year.

Around the Pac-12 … An Arizona receiver can't celebrate too much after making some catches last week. … Arizona State's running back is closing in on some touchdown records. … California's offensive line needs to improve. … The Bruins need to tackle better, and could be helped by keeping those darn reporters out of practice. … This columnist thinks USC and UCLA should be a happy family. … Oregon State's patience is paying off. … Colorado's offensive coordinator brought energy to the Buffaloes' sideline last week.
