HOT COUGAR ACTION: Thursday Morning Links

At some point in time this summer, we are going to reach a point where I have zero items to link. We are not there yet as today is a surprisingly busy day of links.

In addition to the links after the jump, there is also this podcast from Mike Leach's appearance on the Ian Furness show. Leach didn't break down the Pac-12 mascot battle again, but the interview did cover the Crimson and Gray game, Jeff Tuel's progress and the situation with Sekope Kaufusi.

If you haven't seen the Martin Stadium remodel for yourself, this video from KHQ gives a pretty good indication of just how large the new structure is. After seeing it for myself for the first time last week, I would describe it as shockingly large.

Finally, the NFL Draft begins today with the first round and continues into the weekend. Alex Hoffman-Ellis' name keeps popping up on mock drafts mostly in the fifth or sixth round. This mock draft has him going to Minnesota with the third pick of the fifth-round. Zach Williams was selected in the sixth round last year.

PULLMAN — Long before he literally helped build Washington State's current baseball stadium; and long before his name was attached to the facility; and long before he established himself as one of the most legendary coaches in college baseball history; Bobo Brayton says he received his greatest honor as a Cougar — and it had nothing to do with baseball.
