Pac-10 lunch links: Robinson stepping up for Sun Devils

There is no such thing as a moral or an immoral book. Books are well-written or badly written. That is all.
- Injury report might be a bit long for Arizona, though nothing appears serious as of yet. Donald Horton, moving from defensive tackle to end, appears healthy, though. The Wildcats head to Fort Huachuca on Thursday.
- Gerell Robinson looks like a far more refined receiver so far in Arizona State camp, and that could be huge for an offense that wants to use three, four and even five receivers.
- So how did Jahvid Best get so fast? Some California receivers had the dropsies.
- An Oregon practice report. A trio of Ducks receivers are banged up.
- Oregon State believes 2009 is their time. So that's where all my time went! Interesting stuff in that Buker story about the Sean Canfield-Lyle Moevao QB competition. Appears Moevao has a ways to go to be 100 percent. Buker also had these day one notes. Pictures and video here.
- A look at some of the Stanford players who are going both ways. Also take note of the quick hit at the bottom about guard David DeCastro. Prediction: He'll be All-Pac-10 at season's end. This Stanford player swims against the current.
- You tell me: Does UCLA offensive line recruit Stanley Hasiak look like a freshman? Or does he look like the grumpy guy who holds the velvet rope outside that club that won't let you in? The Bruins are young but it's still now time. Update on some Clearinghouse issues.
- An injury scare for USC quarterback Aaron Corp but it was a short one. Linebacker who? LB Chris Galippo is ready for his close up.
- Washington's new assistant strength coach has a familiar name. Special teams are a concern. This Huskies assistant remembers the good old days.
- Washington State looks a lot fitter compared to last fall, but this running back has been kicked off the team.
