WSU links: Auburn picks a QB, dumps a safety

COUGARS

FROM PULLMAN -- In addition to our WSU links, we pass along yesterday's news out of Auburn on this fine Sunday morning. Details below.

...

--- The most important news from down south is that Auburn has settled on Nick Marshall as its starting quarterback. Marshall originally played a season at Georgia (as a defensive back) before being dismissed from the team and heading to a junior college. His playmaking ability is augmented by his speed and athleticism. He has never taken a snap as a Division-1 quarterback.

--- The Tigers also made news yesterday by dismissing their leading returning tackler after he was arrested for marijuana possession.

--- Our position preview series continued today with a look at WSU's defensive line.

--- We had a practice recap on the blog, along with a video interview with Rick Neuheisel and a post taking a look at my AP ballot.

--- Washington wants to play faster this season. The Huskies are trying to stay healthy.

--- Oregon might have to approach its kicking game by committee.

--- Oregon State sure is having fun this camp.

--- USC's quarterbacks are still duking it out.

--- UCLA breaks camp with more confidence.

--- A California receiver is back in the coaches' favor after losing weight.

--- Stanford has a big tailback rotation. The Cardinal's tight ends are assuming greatness.

--- A Utah linebacker got back on the field yesterday, though his status for the season is still up in the air.

--- Colorado's players want to tackle for real.

--- Arizona's senior quarterback is showing improvement.

--- Arizona State's offense got the better of its defense in a scrimmage.
