Washington State

It has been awhile, but USC will finally get a look at - and a test against - improved Washington State in a Pac-12 Conference opener Saturday at the Coliseum. Because of Pac-12 scheduling rotations, USC is playing the Cougars for the first time in three years. And Washington State under pass-happy second-year Coach Mike Leach appears to be a different program than it was under former coach Paul Wulff . In 2010, USC defeated the undermanned Cougars, 50-16, at Pullman, Wash.

The Pacific 10 Conference's two men's basketball coaching vacancies were filled Monday when Sean Miller of Xavier was hired by Arizona and Ken Bone of Portland State was hired by Washington State. Miller accepted the head coaching job at Arizona to end the Wildcats' sometimes frustrating search for a high-profile successor for Hall of Fame member Lute Olson.

SEATTLE -- A Washington state man is scheduled to appear Wednesday in federal court here after being taken into custody for allegedly threatening President Obama via an email to the FBI, authorities said. The man, identified as Anton Caluori, 31, was arrested following a brief struggle after the U.S. Secret Service and police from the city of Federal Way, south of Seattle, confronted him at his apartment door Tuesday afternoon. He answered the door carrying a shotgun, according to police.

UCLA 44, Washington State36 (final) Now I feel bad about saying Washington State had little talent. That was a cheap shot born of frustration because of undisciplined play by both sides and officiating that was losing control of the game. The Cougars do have some talent, and it's giving the kind of effort that will probably save the team from a post-game Mike Leach rant. Note: we did say probably. At the end it was a one possession game. The Cougars passed for 456 yards and outgained UCLA in total offense by 193 yards.

Former Texas Tech coach Mike Leach is the new head coach at Washington State. The school said Wednesday that Leach had agreed in principle to a five-year contract. He will be introduced Tuesday at a news conference in Pullman, Wash. Terms of the contract were not immediately available. Leach, 50, posted an 84-43 record at Texas Tech, leading the Red Raiders to 10 bowl appearances in 10 seasons. He was fired in 2009 amid allegations he mistreated a player with a concussion.
