Rummaging through WSU’s Wednesday links


It’s hump day, or as it’s known in our house, the “ah crud, we forgot to put the trash out” day. It’s also a good day to catch up on links in the morning, then hit the links in the afternoon – if it would just warm up a bit. Anyhow, first to the electronic links. Read on.

• UPDATE: Though new basketball coach Ken Bone didn’t feel there was much chance of signing a player at this late date, it looks like it’s going to happen. Former Rainier Beach point guard Reggie Moore is in the process of getting his letter-of-intent in and will be joining WSU in the fall. We’ll have more later.


• Welcome to SportsLink, middle school edition. You know, first there’s the I’m-mad-at-you-for-your-friends-screwing-up-my-stadium-deal blast. That’s followed by a what-the-heck-are-you-talking-about response, which inevitably will result in everyone being sent to the principal’s office. You just wait. The rulers will come out, knuckles will be whacked and that will be that. In public. Behind the scenes? Let’s just say no one should be inviting Scott Woodward and Jim Sterk to a Cajun cookout soon.

We posted the unedited version of the Sterk response to Woodward’s comments here last night (along with a few more quotes), but we’ll pass on the S-R link as well. … Now that we’re done with that, there is still some flying shrapnel out there in reference to the Husky Stadium/Key Arena bill – see Art Thiel’s column on the P-I website – and the Apple Cup debacle – check out John McGrath’s column, though just enjoy the sentiment and ignore the little errors (it was WSU that quit talking, each school would have received more than $10 million from the deal, etc.). … OK, enough of the spit fights. Let’s get back to sports, which, after all, are supposed to be a refuge from this type of crap. But all I’ve got to offer you is a nice feature out of Philadelphia on Brandon Gibson. Well worth reading. And a good way to end the morning.


• That’s all for now. We’ll be back if need be. Until then I’ll be trying to beat the recycling truck down the street …
