A Matter Of Opinion

Home game I

Not that anyone should be surprised to learn that money drives the decisions around big-time college athletics, but how will Seattle go over as the permanent home of the Apple Cup?  WSU has more alums in the Puget Sound region than they do in Eastern Washington, so getting a crowd won’t likely be a problem. And you’d have to be a dewy-eyed romantic to think home fan enthusiasm could outweigh a lucrative gate.  But off in the future, when today’s students’ kids and grandkids are students in Pullman, is it crazy to think that alumni loyalty (as measured by financial donations) might be dented just a tad?
