It's hard to beat a better roundup of college/professional sports in the region than the AM SportsLink post by SR buddy Vince Grippi. He provides beaucoup links daily on WSU, UI, EWU, Gonzaga, Seattle Mariners/Seahawks, etc. Sample from today & WSU:
Washington State: Even though it was the middle of the week, Christian Caple found plenty to do, including making his Pac-12 picks and putting together the weekly pick-'em contest on the blog. And, yes Christian, the spread is tough. That's why the casinos in Las Vegas look so nice. … Christian also has a Q-and-A with Jim Allen, our EWU beat writer, on the blog, a live chat, plus a post-practice post with video (the buildup all season to the Apple Cup should be really fun with Mike Leach in Pullman), from last night. Add in his story from today's S-R and a morning post and you have a complete package. … Well not totally complete. John Blanchette puts the final touches on it with his column on the new Martin Stadium. … Speaking of picks, ESPN.com's Pac-12 blog has its choices. … More on the Pac-12's important weekend from Jon Wilner. Full post here.
Question: Would you like to see more regional college sports news on HucksOnline?
Yes, The Spokesman-Review sports staff lost five members due to early retirement on Saturday. But Sports Editor Joe Palmquist (pictured) points out that most of the five will continue on as part-time help: “(John) Blanchette will average two columns a week over the course of the year and continue to write on local topics. (Vince) Grippi has agreed to take on a part-time gig as our online producer. He will have daily posts in Sportslink, giving readers a gateway to all the interesting sports news in our area. I think you will see (Dave) Trimmer’s name on a lot of Then & Now stories, catching up with former area sports stars, and also covering events when we are shorthanded.” You can read about the SR sports department changes here.
