• Some football news for Coug fans. SMU quarterback and Seattle native Corey Slater has left the Dallas school and will return to the Northwest. He may end up at WSU. … ESPN's Mark Schlabach picks Idaho at Washington State as one of the more interesting early games. … The Everett Herald is reporting that 6-foot-10 center Charlie Enquist of Kings has accepted a scholarship offer from Washington State (down in story).
• From Gonzaga, former guard Pierre Marie Altidor-Cespedes has been officially cleared to play next season at Marshall University.

I'm not sure if Kittredge ever played first this year. Third question: Why not more Mt. Spokane guys, at least one more, on the second team?
