Midday links: Bears prepping for big week in Berkeley

PROGRAMMING NOTE: Let’s do a Live Chat Thursday at noon.
Pac-10 leader California hasn’t sold out Haas Pavilion all season, however, the Golden Bears are hoping their fans come out in droves for Thursday’s game against Arizona, which is on ESPN, and Saturday’s bout with Arizona State, which could decided the regular-season champion.
— F Theo Robertson told SI.com’s George Dohrmann: “It is really the time of year when your legacy is defined.”
— More Pac-10 bashing from SI.com.
— SI.com’s Andy Glockner believes Washington must win the Pac-10 Tournament to make the NCAA tournament. He writes: “Losing at home to USC may have ended the Huskies’ at-large hopes. An 11-7 mark and a loss in the Pac-10 final isn’t at-large worthy this season, even if the Huskies win their final three on the road (where they’re 1-5 in league play).”
— Most of the brackets from the so-called experts has Cal as the lone Pac-10 representative.
— In Tempe, Ariz, they’re downplaying Ty Abbott’s arrest last week for driving with a suspended license and focusing on Arizona State’s chances of winning a Pac-10 championship.
Bud Withers offers an interesting story on a possible replacement for Oregon’s Ernie Kent.
— In Pullman, they’re celebrating the hire of athletic director Bill Moos.
— It looks as if USC was distracted before it’s 51-47 upset at Washington State. Trojans coach Kevin O’Neill was forced to remain in Seattle as the team to flew to Spokane because he had to attend a conference call with the NCAA’s Committee on Infractions.
The Los Angeles Times reports: “Along with O’Neill being absent Friday, assistant coaches Bob Cantu and Phil Johnson were absent the entire trip; both were in Tempe at the hearing. Gib Arnold was the only assistant coach with the team for the Washington trip.”
— Watch out for Stanford next season. The Cardinal has one of the top recruiting classes in the Pac-10, which features Bellevue point guard Aaron Bright and Vashon High center John Gage.
— Oregon State looks to snap a 10-game losing streak to UCLA.
