A needed break

After 12 straight days of covering football practice I know I'm starting to lose my legs, so I can only imagine how Washington State's players and coaches must feel. The kickers certainly looked a little wobbly yesterday, and maybe the defense could use a break, too (except the freshmen defensive linemen that is, those kids looked like they'd had a little too much sugar).

But we all made it through fall camp in Lewiston, Idaho no worse for wear. In fact, apart from one apparent head injury to Gabe Marks and some bumps and bruises along the offensive line and secondary, the Cougars Sacajawea Junior High with their health intact, which can't be said of a lot of schools.

Anyways, the links are after the jump.

— Our story from yesterday's scrimmage takes a look at WSU's emerging ground attack.

— We've also got our daily practice report, post-practice quotes from Mike Leach and stats from the scrimmage.

— Is Washington's fastest receiver ready to become a consistent playmaker for the Huskies?

— Grantland gives its Pac-12 preview.

— Anu Solomon can't make too many mistakes if he wants to start for Arizona.

— A senior offensive lineman at Arizona State, Chip Sarafin, has taken the brave step of becoming college football's first openly gay active player.

— Last year injuries doomed Cal's season.  Is history repeating itself in Berkeley?

— Colorado can't improve unless Sefo Liufau does.

— After four years with the Oregon basketball team, Johnathan Loyd is trying his hand at football.

— Oregon State's Sean Mannion is working on his footwork

— UCLA's Myles Jack is learning to control his temper.

— USC could have a youth movement in its first year under Steve Sarkisian. 

— Utah lost a cornerback for the season.
