Morning links: Lots of WSU news and a live chat

We have plenty of Washington State football news to pass along in today's morning links. If that's not enough, we'll hold a WSU chat at 11 a.m.

Our links lead off with today's offensive line preview and continue with yesterday's blog posts about WSU's contingency plans for the season-opener if the wildfires encircling Pullman prove problematic. We've also got practice notes and video of Mike Leach.

Former WSU quarterback Connor Halliday had a workout with the Kansas City Chiefs. We have a brief story about that, as does CougCenter. And while you're over visiting our friends at SB Nation, give the CougCenter Hour a listen. I was a guest and host Michael Preston asked me lots of good questions about the Cougars. … Stef Loh weighs in on the wildfires in her links. … ESPN's Erik McKinney says WSU's pirate coach has done a good job plundering other school's recruits.
