Housekeeping and some links


First off this morning I want to say thanks to those of you who supported my arguments on the posts below. But I wish such phrases as “talking out of his ass,” weren’t used. There’s no need to go there. If someone doesn’t understand my sense of humor, so be it. I never got Milton Berle either. Just let them make their comments, disagree with them if you want, but GSLFan and everyone else, we don’t need to go there. Besides, the image you painted turned my stomach.

The last line was a joke, of course.

But the sentiment behind it is real. Let’s all – me included – remain civil – unless we’re talking about USC (maybe I should label all the jokes).

Now on to today. My story off Wednesday’s scrimmage can be found here. There are two practices scheduled for today and I’ll be at both. And, for those of you who asked about a future WSU beat writer, I would like to refer you to this recent blog post from our editor, Steve Smith. After you read this you should understand I’m your guy for the foreseeable future and I can see all the way to the summer of ‘08 right now.

I stand by what I wrote in this space yesterday, in that, as I look at each position, the Cougars are better than or just as good as last year in quite a few. Does that mean I believe a 12-0 season is in the offing? Please. But it’s been my experience if the Cougars remain comparatively healthy, they can compete with nearly everyone they play (for a recent example of that, look at last year’s first nine games). Isn’t that all any WSU fan could ask for?

• Jim Moore of the P-I had this piece on the player of the week, Romeen Abdollmohammadi. And the Times had this rewrite of the WSU release as did the News Tribune.
