Roundup: Mike Leach loves it in Pullman

Washington State Athletics

Washington State

Great story from Chantel Jennings on Washington State head coach Mike Leach’s comfort level with Pullman (it’s high; he loves it there), how he got the job in the Palouse and much, much more. Great longish-form story.

Utah

Let’s watch Pat Forde speak on why Utah will beat Michigan. Also, Chantel Jennings writes that Utah quarterback Travis Wilson’s return to football has been very positive thus far.

Arizona

Ted Miller opines that Arizona will get a stiff test from Cal Saturday night in the Wildcats’ quest to improve to 4-0.

UCLA

Ben Howland’s footprint is almost wholly removed in Westwood with the departures of Jordan Adams, Kyle Anderson and Zach LaVine (who was recruited by Howland), so now it’s all on UCLA head coach Steve Alford’s guys, writes Jon Rothstein. Also, hope you watched “The Drive” last night – great inside look at the win over Texas, and great narration writing, IMO.  Whether you watched it or not, here’s Episode 4 of “Overdrive.”

Arizona State

With the yeoman’s work he has done in the first three weeks of the season, Arizona State running back D.J. Foster is featured by the venerable Doug Haller. Gotta love his nickname “The Human First Down.”

Colorado

As Colorado tries to get back to .500 on Saturday with the Warriors coming to town, Tom Kensler of the Denver Post notes that Hawai’i has already shown it can compete against Pac-12 teams this year – the Mountain West squad lost to U-Dub by just one and fell to Oregon State 38-30, scoring the last 23 points in the game.

USC

Thanks to CoachingSearch.com on Conquest Chronicles, we now know that former USC coach Ed Orgeron turned down the Nicholls State head coaching vacancy.

California

Jeff Faraudo documents the “delayed success” had by some of Jeff Tedford’s recruits at Cal. Guys like Mustafa Jalil, Brennan Scarlett and Stefan McClure are having nice starts to the 2014 campaign.

Washington

Washington wide receiver Kasen Williams has just four catches in three games so far this year, but Williams says it has nothing to do with last season’s injury and he should be featured more against Georgia State, according to Percy Allen.

Oregon State

If you wanted the opinion of defensive line coach Joe Seumalo, he’d tell you that Oregon State defensive end Obum Gwacham can be an every-down kinda guy for his defensive front. Don’t forget those two sacks against Hawai’i now.

Oregon

Now that it’s nothing but conference foes, The Oregonian takes a look at the 10 best plays from Oregon’s non-league schedule.

Stanford

Care to know Stanford head coach David Shaw’s plans during the bye week for his football team? Jon Wilner has you covered.
