Lots to digest from Thursday’s Pac-12 media day. Over the next few days, we’ll give you what we learned from one-on-one interviews with players and coaches.

For now, here’s a few links starting with our story on about Washington being picked to finish sixth in the Pac-12 race and a notebook  leading with Washington State coach Ernie Kent, who is trying to restore the Cougars’ battered psyche.

FRIDAY AFTERNOON LINKS:

— Here’s the transcript from coach Lorenzo Romar and Nigel Williams-Goss during their on-stage portion interviews at media day.

— Here’s a Q&A with Williams-Goss by the Arizona Daily Star.

— Good roundup of media day by Jon Gold at the Arizona Daily Star.

— For the third straight year, Arizona was picked No. 1 in the Pac-12 preseason media poll.

— Utah is the new darling of the Pac-12.

Colorado is good, but there’s a feeling the Buffaloes have hit a plateau.

— Former California coach Mike Montgomery likes what he sees in new coach Cuonzo Martin.

— More on Kent, who returns to coaching after a four-year layoff.

— Arizona State coach Herb Sendek believes the Sun Devils have a chance to make their first repeat trip to the NCAA tournament since 1981.

— Oregon will follow the lead of high-scoring Joseph Young.

— Oregon State is going to be awful this year, but new Ducks coach Wayne Tinkle is hoping to emulate his former Montana teammate and assistant coach Larry Krystkowiak who has turned Utah from doormat to potentially dominant in four years.

— ESPN’s Eammon Brennan writes the Pac-12 depth is plentiful, but I’m not so sure about that. The Wildcats are the only team ranked in the coaches’ poll top 25 and it remains to be seen if any other Pac-12 team will emerge as a serious conference title contender.
