COUGARS

Let's get right to it this morning. There are lots of links available to stories concerned with the Pac-10 football media day yesterday and we want to share them. Read on.
••••••••••

• We'll start, as we most always do, with our stories, including one on center Kenny Alfred (at left, above) and the offensive line and this notebook. ... Alfred was the subject of Todd Milles' story in the News Tribune. Milles also had this overall piece. ... The Times' Bud Withers was in LA and he had this team-by-team account and this column. ... Outside the Northwest, the LA Times had this follow up on a Thursday story on USC possibly breaking NCAA rules by having too many assistant coaches – in some ways similar to some of Eastern Washington's violations while Paul Wulff was coach; do you think, if the NCAA is really mad at Pete Carroll, they'll punish Paul Wulff more? – along with a column by Chris Dusfresne. Also from Los Angeles, the Daily News had this column from Jill Painter and the Orange County Register's Randy Youngman had this column. ... Outside of Los Angeles, we offer Ken Goe's coverage, which includes a story on new Oregon coach Chip Kelly and a USC-as-favorite story in the Oregonian, this notebook in the San Francisco Chronicle and this piece on the Pac-10's running attacks in the Arizona Republic.

• Before we close, two more links. WSU's official basketball schedule was released yesterday (you can find it here), and it's little different than the unofficial one we shared last week. The Kansas State game will be on ESPNU, according to this article on the Kansas State website.

•••

• That's it for this morning. We'll be back if news breaks. Until then …
