Sturdy foundation being built in Cheney


Eastern Washington opened spring football Monday with some new coaches – including a new offensive coordinator – and a new attitude.

Dave Trimmer took a look at all of that in this story, though the focus is on new OC Todd Sturdy.

Aside: Isn't that a great name for a coach, Coach Sturdy? "Who can we rely on?" "Coach Sturdy." "Damn right."

There's more on Dave's Eastern blog.


The Huskies also opened spring practice and I guarantee you there were a lot more sports writers at the practice – and the corresponding more words – than there were in Cheney.

Every Puget Sound paper of note had a story, with most focusing on the anointed one, Jake Locker. Can the freshman quarterback lead UW to the promised land (better known as Pasadena)?

Here are the stories from the News Tribune, the Times and the P-I.
