Late night means late post


You know you’re getting started late when Ellen is on the TV, but I have a good excuse.

Have you ever had a kid ride a bus home from college – or did you ever ride the bus home? For some reason they always arrive in Spokane after midnight – a fine time if you are college student or a cabbie or a burglar. But no so good if you have crested that hill everyone talks about and are on the other side. For goodness sakes, it took two cups of coffee for me to keep my eyes open and then, when we got back, I was too wired to fall asleep.

That’s my sad, sad story and I’m sticking with it.

Now on to the Cougs.

Glenn Kasses outlined their bowl chances in this morning’s paper, and, as Dennis Patchin called them, slim and none, though slim is still in town. But, I would add, his bags are packed.

There’s more on Glenn’s blog.

Craig Smith covers much of the same ground in the Times, echoing much of the information Glenn has written about this week.

Bill Doba made it clear talking to Todd Milles he’ll be back next year – and that he wants to bring his whole staff back. One minor suggestion: Rearrange who coaches the special teams. That group was poor from the start and didn’t improve as the year wore on. Isn’t that the goal of any coach, to see his charges improve?

In the P-I, Jim Moore isn’t eating turkey on Thursday. No, he’ll be dining on crow with a side of AppleCup sauce.


The Cougar basketball team is back in action tonight, with a 7 p.m. game (KXLY, 920-AM) against Idaho State. WSU is 4-0 for the first time since 1996.
