Tuesday Morning Links

From Pullman — Finally some semblance of order as the Pac-12 coaches teleconference will take place on Tuesday, today, just like always. We'll also have our weekly Wednesday WSU football chat tomorrow at 11 a.m., so keep an eye out for that. The Cougars are just two short days away from taking on Arizona State and, like Simba, they'll need to put the past behind them … Safety Deone Bucannon is a semifinalist for the Jim Thorpe award … Their opponent is impressed by the Cougars' character …The Sun Devils are led by an assistant coach who is no stranger to WSU.

More links after the jump.

Arizona: These Wildcats are practically nocturnal … Arizona is on the brink of bowl eligibility.

Cal: Cal's new linebacker is playing really well, and getting recognized for it.

Colorado: The Buffaloes will face a pumped-up opponent this weekend … With good reason, especially for the quarterbacks.

Oregon: If there's one thing Oregon needed — nay, deserved — it was a really good running back … No. 2 is the new No. 1.

Oregon State: The Beavers know, they have to get better in pass-pro.

Stanford: Trent Murphy is your Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Week.

UCLA: Anthony Barr is a Butkus Award semifinalist … Another linebacker couldn't keep his hands to himself against UCLA.

USC: The Trojans are finding that most recruits want to know who their coach will be.

Utah: The Utes' quarterback is going to tough it out … Utah's coach is concerned about his team's turnovers.

Washington: Kasen Williams will need surgery … He's not the only Husky who's hurting.

Bonus Link: Today's bonus article is one of my favorites. It's written by one of the Masters of the craft and this article — and its author — played a big role in me pursuing a life as a sports writer. It's a bit long but if you have the time, you won't be sorry.
