HOT COUGAR ACTION: Saturday Morning Links

Washington State takes on Oregon at 3 p.m. today, but as Jeff mentioned here there will be no video of any kind. No TV, no Internet stream, nothing. Instead, we will all have to tune into Bud Namek's call to see if the Cougs can complete the road sweep.

Craig will be by later with his preview of the game, but until then you will have to settle for an assortment of morning links.

Leach welcomes challenge at Washington State
Mike Leach is back in the game. And so might be Washington State before you know it.

Grading College Football's New Coaches for 2012 |
Mike Leach, Washington State – In 10 years at Texas Tech, Leach led the Red Raiders to an 84-43 record, 10 bowl appearances and some of the top passing attacks in the nation. Leach had a rocky end to his tenure in Lubbock – largely not his fault – but don’t expect that to have any impact on his time at Washington State. The Cougars showed small progress under previous coach Paul Wulff, and the pieces are in place for Leach to lead this team to a bowl game in 2012.
