12 down, 3 to go (and a live chat)


FROM PULLMAN — The headline refers to spring practice sessions remaining for Washington State, though there are really only two, if you exclude the spring game. Keep reading for links.

First, a note that we'll have our weekly live chat at 2:30 p.m. … The subject of our newspaper story today is Tana Pritchard, whose athleticism and football IQ have helped him overcome his lack of size and made him a candidate to start for WSU at weakside linebacker next season. On the blog, we have our usual post-practice notes. … CougCenter looks at WSU's quarterback competition. … Jeff Choate, who left WSU after one season to become the defensive coordinator at UTEP, is reportedly bailing UTEP after four months to work at Florida.

Around the Pac-12 … Washington is still waiting on the stay-or-go NBA decision of guard C.J. Wilcox. … Arizona lost a commitment from a basketball player in the class of 2014. … Arizona State has high hopes for one of its cornerbacks. … The spring basketball signing period begins today, and Washington hopes it brings good news. … UW's offensive line appears more stable this season than last. … Keenan Allen's draft stock may be in trouble after a report of a failed drug test. … Oregon State likes the depth and experience of its offensive line. … Oregon isn't likely to get off easy from the NCAA just because Chip Kelly is gone. … A Colorado linebacker has been forced to give up football. The Buffs' coach thinks they can win in the Pac-12 this season (what the heck else is he going to say?) … The philosophy of Utah's defense is the same despite some new faces.

See you at 2:30.
