Tuesday morning Pac-12 links

From Pullman -- The Cougars practiced long into the night on Monday to prepare for Friday's Apple Cup showdown ... Don't expect to attend WSU's bowl game if you sent Bill Moos vitriolic emails last year ... It's still anyone's guess where the Cougars will end up ... Or who will start at quarterback for the Huskies ... WSU players and coaches credit the work done in fall camp for their recent rash of success.

Links from around the conference after the jump.


  • The Sun Devils still are not satisfied after winning the Pac-12 South.
  • Cal's football season is already over, which means it's time to get ready for next year.
  • Colorado's rivalry game against Utah isn't generating much of a buzz.
  • Mark Helfrich is learning on the job.
  • Don't tell Mike Riley the Civil War has lost its luster.
  • Stanford's season is back on track.
  • Ishmael Adams is UCLA's new flavor of the week.
  • The Utes seniors still have something to play for.

And in basketball news ...

  • Cal starts a good day for Pac-12 basketball teams with a win over Arkansas in the Maui Invitational.
  • And Arizona State continued to carry the conference's banner with an upset of Marquette.
  • Stanford rounded out the day with a road win over Houston.

Bonus Link: An awful lot has happened to WSU football in the past five years.
