Saturday morning Pac-12 links

From Berkeley — Sometimes a loss serves as a big enough wakeup call. Sometimes an extra intense practice full of shouting and punitive conditioning isn't the best motivational tool at a coach's disposal. Washington State's men's basketball coaches are subscribing to that philosophy, and had a light practice on Friday in preparation for today's game against Cal. They face a Golden Bears team that is quickly rising in the national conscience. The football team saw its first departure of the Spring, with wide receiver Bobby Ratliff deciding to retire his mouthguard

The women's basketball just keeps winning, and is now 5-0 in the Pac-12 after knocking off No. 21 Colorado.

More links, after the jump.

  • As sweet-shooting 2-guards that score in bunches with similar sounding last names, it's inevitable that former WSU player Klay Thompson and current Coug Que Johnson will draw numerous comparisons. Let it be said that CougCenter had the first.
  • Bellevue's Buddah Baker no longer plans to sign with Oregon.
  • How did UW's Mike Anderson get so intense? Why, playing with the jail-ballers, of course.
  • Arizona's 18-0 start is no fluke, says an Arizona columnist.
  • At long last USC's search for a defensive line coach is over.
  • A good feature on an OSU basketball player.
