The first new week begins (with a depth chart)


FROM PULLMAN — Washington State  won't practice today, because it's Monday of game week. Holy cow, it's Monday of game week. How about that? Read on for links, as well as a look at what WSU's depth chart might entail.

– Our story today provides a brief narrative of a projected (and that is a key word) depth chart for Washington State, and that projection is also posted below for your viewing pleasure.

– The Cougars did hold a Sunday night practice session, but the seemingly never-ending lightning storm in Pullman forced the team inside. They held a walk-through in a practice gym, and that was that. So there's really nothing to pass along on that end.

Here's a feature from WSU Athletics on a few Cougars who like to play golf. (I had a similar conversation with Connor Halliday during camp. His handicap is much better than mine.)

– The Ledger-Enquirer has a first look at WSU.

– Here's's college football preview. There might be a thing or two about Auburn in there.

– A fascinating story from Todd Dybas about a Washington defensive tackle's search for the truth.

– UCLA has more size at Y-back.

– Another story about USC's quarterbacks.

– Arizona's practices haven't included a whole lot of contact, and the Wildcats hope that pays off in the future.

– Arizona State has a bit of a wait until its season opener.

– Stanford's trajectory continues an upward trend.

Here's a preview of California's season.

– Oregon State isn't worrying about bumps and bruises.

– Oregon's quarterback and center are good friends.

– A Utah defensive tackle shook off retirement, which isn't easy to do.

– Colorado might end up playing quite a few freshmen this season.
