WSU in search of a left tackle


Glenn Kasses is back in town and back at Cougar football practice.

He’s got this story concerning the Cougars’ offensive line, and the one big hole assistant coach George Yarno has to fill.

He’ll also have more on his blog today.

•UPDATE: Missed this earlier today, but coach Bill Doba is giving the Cougs most of their Saturday’s off.


• Yesterday afternoon we shared with you a link to a YouTube video of Tony Bennett being named Chevrolet’s coach of the year on CBS, with the UW logo under his name.

That screwup is the lead of Bud Withers’ basketball column today, but in a good way. Withers’ hypothesis is it won’t happen again, because the Pac-10 is going to be so good next year, even the Eastern power-brokers (and by Eastern I mean anyone East of the Rockies) won’t be able to ignore the conference.

Me? I’ll believe it when I see it.


• Steve Bergum has his college baseball notebook today, leading with the Cougars getting the week off – and needing the time.

• We shared the news about UI defensive back Jevon Butler’s troubles yesterday, but there’s more in this story from today’s S-R. Plus there’s all the college action from Tuesday.

• Tennessee won it’s seventh women’s NCAA Division I basketball title Monday night in Cleveland.

• UW freshman center Spencer Hawes is expected to make a decision about the NBA draft this week.

• The search for a new UW women’s coach got shorter, as Georgia Tech’s MaChelle Joseph pulled her name out of the running. That probably means the Dawgs are close to picking a coach.

• Tacoma’s John McGrath isn’t too pleased with University of North Carolina coach Roy Williams being named to the basketball hall of fame.

• Finally, basketball coach Dana Altman left Creighton for Arkansas. Then, less than 24 hours later, he left Arkansas for … Creighton. Yes, he changed his mind. Maybe he had never been to Fayetteville. Now, will Gail Goestenkors renege on the Texas job?
