FROM PULLMAN -- Plenty of happenings on the WSU front yesterday, though today figures to be much quieter. There's a lot to read for now, though. Get your coffee/orange juice/Tang ready, and read on.


First, there's the matter of Ken Bone and his future as WSU's coach, which you already know about. But Bone held his end-of-season teleconference yesterday, out of which we wrote this story for the newspaper. Also spoke with athletic director Bill Moos, whose comments you can read in this blog post. ... There was spring football practice yesterday, too, and afterward we wrote this blog post recapping the day's highlights, and wrote this story about junior-college transfer Ivan McLennan, who figures to help the Cougars as a pass-rushing buck linebacker this season. ... Bud Withers has this story on the Bone situation in The Seattle Times, and Howie Stalwick writes about the same topic in the Kitsap Sun. ... More from CougCenter on the Air Raid playbook.

Around the Pac-12 ... Arizona gave No. 2 seed Ohio State a tight game last night, but ultimately lost, 73-70, in the Sweet 16. The Wildcats' season ended before they wanted, but it turned out OK, all things considered. ... Previewing Oregon's Sweet 16 game against No. 1 seed Louisville. There's a bunch more Oregon coverage from the Oregonian, which you can read here. And more from the Register-Guard. ... California's Allen Crabbe received a postseason honor. ... A Utah running back is proving his worth. ... A USC offensive lineman is ready to give it another go in 2013 after struggling last season. ... An Arizona State running back is trying to contribute this season. ... Colorado is working on a multi-year contract for its defensive coordinator. ... Looking at Oregon State's defensive line.

That's all for now. WSU is off today, then returns to the practice field Saturday at 10 a.m. There won't be a scrimmage, though.
