From Pullman -- Well, hope you enjoyed having the Cougars in Pullman. It may have been brief, but at least WSU won its only home Pac-12 game out of the first six. With classes starting on Monday the team barely had time to grab its syllabi before jetting off to the Bay Area to face the Northern California schools. Up first is Stanford, and we've got an advance ... After beating Utah, the Cougars are hoping to put together a winning streak and get back on the right foot. That's the good news. The bad news is they'll have to do it without DaVonte Lacy, who won't be suiting up anytime soon.
With his rib injury, Lacy can't participate in all the fun Pac-12 guards are having this season.
Links from around the conference, after the jump.
- Maybe having NFL-caliber players isn't such a good thing. Safety Ed Reynolds declared for the draft today, along with Cam Fleming, meaning that Stanford has lost four starting offensive lineman.
- Oregon has a new defensive coordinator, albeit with an old face.
- Oregon State's Devon Collier is hoping a heart-to-heart with his coach will help him return to form.
- Washington's perimeter defense is no longer something to scoff at.
- Even No. 1 Arizona isn't immune to injury.
- Wanaah Bail doesn't wanna bail, he just wants more minutes. (Bows, graciously accepts applause)
