Morning links: Overwhelming depth at wide receiver

You probably know this, but Washington State has a deep group of wide receivers. If you didn't know, you should check out our position preview in today's paper.

You know what? Go ahead and read it either way. Also be sure to check out yesterday's practice report, featuring the return of Thursday Night Football, and our video of Alex Grinch after practice. … Stef Loh of the Seattle Times took a game-by-game look at WSU's schedule and gives five keys to the Cougars season. … Don't miss Brian Anderson's exploration into how the Cougars force more turnovers.

In other Pac-12 news …

-- What's weirder than Popular Mechanics writing college football predictions? Popular Mechanics sending cupcakes to the Utah football team.

-- Tom Fitzgerald compares the media policies at Pac-12 programs and boy, Sonny Dykes seems like a reasonable fellow.

-- UCLA is going to start a true freshman at quarterback.

-- Eventually, Mark Helfrich is going to have to decide who Oregon's starters will be. That moment is getting closer.

-- Apparently a lot of "really quality dialogue" took place at the $500 booze parties Steve Sarkisian hosted on Washington's dime.
