But then, even WSU athletic director Jim Sterk admitted it. “Going in,” Sterk said of Wulff, “he was the dark horse”/John Blanchette, Spokesman-Review. More here.

Related: A dream, a chance, a deal: Initially a dark horse, Wulff was unanimous choice to be WSU coach/Vince Grippi, Spokesman-Review; provides complete coverage of the Wulff hiring here.

Question: On a scale of 1 (lowest) to 10, how interested are you in WSU sports? Should Huckleberries Online bring you updates on important WSU sports news via in-house sources?
