Halfway through spring, we have links


FROM PULLMAN — Only 13 days until WSU's spring game, and only 16 days until spring practice is officially over. There are seven more sessions in that time. There have been eight sessions so far. Let's celebrate the past-halfway point with some links, shall we?

Mike Leach decided not to have the Cougars scrimmage yesterday, but they did practice, and we have this story about it in today's paper. There are also more notes and quotes on the blog, as well as a five questions segment with Gunnar Eklund. … John Blanchette has a column today about former WSU kicker Jason Hanson, who announced his retirement from the NFL this week.

Around the Pac-12 … Washington's backup quarterbacks duke it out, and the Huskies talk about the Rutgers scandal. … A Colorado player finds a home at slot receiver. … A USC running back is making a case for playing a bunch this season. … UCLA's Malcolm Jones is back and has a new approach to the game this time around. … Marcus Mariota is becoming more of a leader for Oregon. … One of Arizona's top basketball recruits is inspired by his hard-working mother. … Arizona's quarterback battle is far from over, but a leader is beginning to emerge. … Arizona State might not end up playing Notre Dame in 2014. … Lastly, this isn't Pac-12 related, but it is unquestionably the best spring-game moment I've seen. Take a look.

That's it for today.
