Live chat today, plus WSU links

COUGARS

FROM PULLMAN — If you have any lingering questions about WSU as it prepares to begin the season in Auburn, you can get them out of your system at 1 p.m. today during our weekly live chat. Until then, you'll have to settle for these links.


– Today's newspaper features our first Pac-12 notebook of the season, giving a look at the conference's quarterback situation.

– We also debuted our Pac-12 power rankings in today's newspaper (in which I, like an idiot, spelled Colorado coach Mike MacIntyre's name incorrectly).

– Yesterday, the blog included WSU's official depth chart, some notes from Mike Leach's segment on the Pac-12 teleconference, and some notes and quotes from yesterday's practice.

– KREM's Darnay Tripp passed along this retrospective of Auburn quarterback Nick Marshall's high-school career that he put together while working in Georgia.

– Auburn likely isn't expecting Leach to play it safe on Saturday.

– The Tigers are expecting a “much improved” WSU team, and are willing to slow down if they have to.

– Here's some video Gus Malzahn's press conference yesterday.

– A Washington kick returner is receiving some lofty praise already. He's a true freshman. The Huskies are trying to increase their tempo this year.

– An Arizona State receiver has learned not to give up.

– For leadership, Arizona looks to a guy who rides motorcycles.

– UCLA is glad its practices are changing focus from grinding to game-planning.

– Lane Kiffin knows who his quarterback is, but he's not saying. So, neener-neener.

– California is ready to start the Sonny Dykes era.

– Jon Wilner looks at college coaches who might be on the hot seat.

– Utah plans to “stripe its stadium” for its opener.

– Colorado is ready for a fresh start under new coach Mark MacIntyre.

– Oregon's week-one opponent will get a big payday, and that's about it.

– Oregon State is trying to shore up its thin offensive line.

See you at 1.
