Morning links: Live chat today

We'll be holding another one of our weekly live chats at 11 a.m. Until then, tide yourself over with these tasty links.

Yesterday, we media types spoke to Kyrin Priester, and so it was natural write about the Washington State receiver. Here is my story about Priester, who recently learned he can suit up with the Cougars this year. And here is a good story from Stefanie Loh of the Seattle Times, who spoke with Priester's prep school coach. Don't know Loh, yet? Allow her to introduce herself.

Here on the blog we have practice notes and post-practice video of Mike Leach, Graham Harrell, Gabe Marks and Priester.

Michael Preston and the CougCenter Hour are back. … Nicholas K. Geranios of the Associated Press has a story about the WSU defense. … The Pacific Takes blog predicts the Cougars will go bowling.

The Cougars practice at Rogers Field and Martin Stadium today at 3:30.

Here is what the 11 other schools are up to:

-- Jaydon Mickens' is stepping up as a vocal leader for Washington.

-- Arizona's defensive line had one goal this offseason: Get bigger.

-- Jeff Metcalfe explores what the Sun Devils are like off the field.

-- The Oregonian previews that California Golden Bears.

-- Turnovers could be key to a Colorado turnaround.

-- Two-a-day practices are rare at Oregon, and getting more rare across the country.
