Lunchtime Pac-12 links

Many thanks to Vince for passing along my note and taking care of the morning links in his daily post so I could get to sleep before the witching hour was over. But now it's time for our daily roundup of Pac-12 news and I don't want to make you wait any longer so let's get to those links.

They're right after the jump.

-- The reason I was in Spokane so late was that I flew back from the Pac-12's media day. Our coverage of the event includes a story on Washington State senior DaVonte Lacy and a Pac-12 notebook.

-- On the blog we also had a post previewing the day's proceedings, video and a transcript of WSU's session, as well as highlights of each school's time at the podium. Additionally, we're passing along a transcript of Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott's opening remarks and the Pac-12 media poll.

-- Lacy also is prominently featured in a Pac-12 Networks documentary that premiered last night.

-- Still no word on who will start at quarterback for the Huskies.

-- The Arizona Daily star has a story on WSU running back Jamal Morrow and another on Arizona's Jonathan McKnight.

-- Arizona State defensive end Marcus Hardison's too valuable to sub out.

-- Cal's new basketball coach wants to toughen up the Golden Bears.

-- Colorado isn't taking any chances with UCLA return man Ishmael Adams.

-- Texas A&M has backed out of a two-game series with Oregon.

-- Oregon State's Sean Mannion is poised to break the Pac-12 passing record despite the lowest passer rating in the conference.

-- Stanford's coach sees similarities between his program and Oregon State.

-- Doctors told UCLA's Marcus Rios he wasn't expected to live after he checked into the hospital with a serious infection but now he's back making big plays for UCLA.

-- Stopping the run is priority No. 1 for USC.

-- Utah has suspended a defensive end.
