Sometimes senioritis can be good

Let’s get started with the Cougs and Huskies before I have to hit a meeting.

The one thing I learned while covering high school football is that seniors make or break your season. There are lots of reasons for it that I won’t delve into here, but trust me.

Now it seems like that might also be the case with the Cougars this year, albeit on a smaller scale. Glenn Kasses profiled fifth-year senior Josh Duin today, and the Seattle Times’ Craig Smith wrote about all the fifth-year guys.

Glenn also had more on the center battle on his blog entry this morning. He also covered the verbal committment WSU’s hoop team received from Nick Witherill, a guard from Arizona, and the Cougs’ 2006-07 basketball schedule. Glenn’s story about Witherill is here.

Todd Milles also wrote about a fifth-year senior, tight end Cody Boyd, whose Cougar career has been hampered by injuries.

It’s nice to know the WSU campus police don’t play favorites. Read to the bottom of Jim Moore’s column and you’ll see what I mean.

On the other end of the experience spectrum, the P-I’s Molly Yanity writes about three Husky freshman who might contribute this year. Ferris High grad Cameron Elisara seems the most confident of the trio.

Uh oh, there’s already dissension in the Husky camp, and it’s coming from a senior. According to Bob Condotta’s story, two-year starter Scott White has been running with the second team, and the linebacker isn’t happy about it.
