WSU vs. Stanford: Links and such to start your Saturday


FROM SEATTLE — It's another WSU gameday that will require a bit of patience, as the Cougars don't begin their game against No. 5 Stanford until 7 p.m. Until then, you can read these links and watch a whole bunch of football.

– First, a reminder that we'll chat live at 6 p.m. tonight before the game. And here's our advance of today's game, along with our keys to a possible WSU victory.

– Bud Withers has this column about the Cougars proving their toughness as a passing team.

– A strange story out of Olympia, as a former WSU offensive lineman is suing former coach Paul Wulff and WSU over concussions suffered while practicing with the Cougars.

– The game could be a challenge for the Cardinal.

– Stanford comes to Seattle with a few pieces missing.
