Morning links: Returning WSU’s return game to respectability

42 points. That's what Washington State's special teams gave up last year. In 2015, Eric Mele hopes the kick return and coverage units can help, not hinder the Cougars.

That's the upshot of our story in today's paper about WSU's return game. We've also got a packed practice report and videos of Mike Leach, Mele and Colton Teglovic speaking after yesterday's practice. We held a live chat yesterday and here is the transcript.

Jeff Nusser of CougCenter doesn't much care for recent arrest lists with WSU at the top. … Bill Connelly of SB Nation has the Cougars at No. 58 in his ranking of all 128 FBS teams.

And in other Pac-12 news …

-- Vernon Adams is already turning heads in Eugene.

-- USC cornerback Adoree' Jackson is practicing with the offense lighting things up.

-- SportsLink old buddy, old pal Christian Caple answered questions about the Washington Huskies.
