Saturday morning Pac-12 links

From Pullman — Yesterday Washington State had a good, old-fashioned Friday news dump. Funny thing was, none of the news were bad. Ernie Kent got his first two recruits as WSU basketball coach. The first was a forward, Aaron Cheatum, who signed his NLI yesterday. The second was a coach, Curtis Allen, who will remain at WSU as Kent's third and final assistant. Yesterday we had another live chat and put up our Five Questions segment with River Cracraft.

Today WSU will hold its Crimson and Gray game in Spokane. We have the rosters and other details here. We've also got our advance of tomorrow's game, focusing on Mike Leach's affinity for film.

CougCenter took a look at the state of the baseball program. It's doing a little better after a win over No. 5 Washington.

 

Saturday morning Pac-12 links

From Pullman — Some good news for the Washington State football team came down last night when Austin Joyner announced his intentions to play for the Cougars. Joyner is listed as a four-star running back but it appears he'll play cornerback at WSU. Yesterday we also posted some notes following an interview with athletic director Bill Moos.

In other Pac-12 news Washington unveiled its new football uniforms and they sure are uniforms … An Arizona basketball recruit's prep career is ending with a bang  … A departing Oregon assistant is going to get a quarter million dollars every year from the public employee pension fund … Gonzaga added a head-to-head series against UCLA.

UPDATE: Somehow I missed John Blanchette's column on the Gonzaga series. Forgive me.

Tuesday morning Pac-12 inks

From Pullman — Lots of links following yesterday's big news that Ernie Kent was hired as the WSU men's basketball coach. Follow the jump and we'll direct you to the news in bullet form.

Saturday morning Pac-12 links

From Pullman — Lots of links from a surprisingly busy Friday. Following Thursday's practice, we had a live chat and a notes, quotes and five questions followup post. We'll have the same tomorrow.

Shortly after the news came down that Washington State had apparently offered the men's basketball coaching position to somebody, we confirmed that Boise State's Leon Rice interviewed with the Cougars. But apparently has decided to stay in Boise.

You're not going to believe this, but it looks like that 7th grader who committed to USC once upon a time may not actually end up a Trojan … Oregon is reloading in the secondary … Washington's Desmond Simmons will transfer.

Saturday morning Pac-12 links

From Pullman — Friday was good to the Pac-12, which went 3-0 in the NCAA tournament with Stanford upsetting New Mexico, Arizona beating Weber State and UCLA crossing Tulsa off the bracket.

It was a good day for the WSU baseball team as well. The Cougars shutout No. 14 UCLA and have won their last five games. 

Oregon will play tomorrow. John Canzano has a column on UO's transfer-filled roster.

Thursday morning Pac-12 links

The Cougars must have been nice this year, picking up Christmas commitments from a highly-regarded defensive tackle as well as a receiver from Texas (both stories are behind a paywall). On the basketball side of things we have our first Four Corners of the season, and a notebook. As we get deeper into bowl season you'll notice these morning links metamorphose from a football-specific feature into a post focused on basketball stories. Did you forget to buy a present for WSU coach Mike Leach? 

Links from around the conference, after the jump.

Thursday Morning Links

From San Francisco — The city by the bay has been taken over by Pac-12 basketball players, coaches and scribes. Back in Pullman, the football team is getting ready to face the No. 2 Ducks, and here is a nice summary of today's practice … Oregon is hoping the Cougars make plenty of mistakes in the passing game … But WSU is going to win, obviously … The NFL is starting to notice Oregon's stellar quarterback.
