Where do the Cougs rank in the Pac?


Glenn Kasses ranks the Pac-10 as the conference football race turns toward the home stretch. His No. 1 team? Cal. His No. 5 team? WSU.

He wants to know if you think that's too high or too low. You can click on his Cougar blog and weigh in.

Glenn also has his first look at Saturday's game.

Backup quarterback Gary Rogers was put on the "no practice" list released Monday by WSU after suffering a shoulder injury against Cal. His status for Saturday's visit by Oregon (2 p.m.) is still up in the air.

UPDATE: The Register-Guard's Pac-10 notebook compares USC and Cal. It also has notes on SC quarterback John David Booty was booed by the Coliseum crowd.


If you had a chance to hear former U. of Miami football player Lamar Thomas' color commentary during the U's brawl with Florida International, you probably couldn't believe someone could say such things and not get fired (you can read what he said here).

Ask Steve Lyons.

Anyway, you were right. Thomas was fired Monday. I'm not adding any commentary. Don’t want to get fired.
