USC gameday morning links

Shanna Lockwood-USA TODAY Sports

It's another Cougar Football Saturday and we have some links to pass the time.

Welcome to another one of the 12 best Saturday's of the year. WSU will play its second game of the season today, although you'll have to wait until 7:30 p.m. PT for the game to start.

When most teams travel to Los Angeles, they enjoy a couple days of nice weather and maybe an In-N-Out Burger. When WSU travels to Los Angeles, there is a famous director waiting for them at the hotel. Mike Leach spent some time with his friend and producer/director/actor Peter Berg on Friday, because that is how Mike Leach rolls.

These days, "multiple" is one of the first buzzwords on every football coach's lips. How many fronts can their defense line up in? How many sets does their offense run? How well can they shift and masquerade within those? The list goes on and on, and doesn’t figure to end any time soon in a world where subterfuge is a trendy path to dominance.
