EWU self-reports football violations


Eastern Washington has reported itself to the NCAA for possible violations in the football program.

And boy does it sound awful. There’s the problem with the life skills “coach.” Because he’s a “coach,” EWU may have had too many “coaches” on staff. Add to that the student assistants weren’t taking enough fondue-making classes or something and Eastern is in real trouble. Ya, right.

The Eagles are lucky, really. If these violations had occurred at USC or Notre Dame, then the NCAA would have put four or five small schools on probation (possibly including EWU) and added 127 new rules. As it is, maybe the Eagles will get by with a slap on the wrist.

You can read about the Eagles’ problems in Dave Trimmer’s story.

• A handful of local kids have decided to head to Pullman and compete for the Cougar track team.

• Speaking of recruits, having been turned down by the letter-of-intent oversight committee, Lewis and Clark High’s Katelan Redmon has decided to honor her commitment to the University of Washington. You can read more about the about-face on Mike Vlahovich’s Prep Report blog.
