Good morning from sunny Phoenix. I have set up a live chat for noon today, so stop by if you can. I might be sitting next to the pool, shades on, feet up … but I’ll try not to rub it in.
— On paper, at least, this looks like a good matchup for Bishop Sankey.
— How about a little hoops: Here’s Percy Allen’s report out of Pac-12 media day in San Francisco Thursday.
— The News Tribune on Sankey’s pursuit of Corey Dillon’s school record.
— A new analogy from Sarkisian this season.
— More on Sankey from the Arizona Republic.
— Five Questions, Five Answers with ASU beat writer Doug Haller.
— And here’s a five-questions piece I did with Fox Sports Arizona.
— There’s a Q&A with Sarkisian in the middle of this Grantland weekend preview.
— Jon Wilner with some interesting insights on the relationships between the Pac-12 and FOX.
