Gives us your Apple Cup memories


What was your favorite Apple Cup? Was it the first one you remember? The Snow Bowl? Last year? As Apple Cup week wears on, just thought it would be a good idea to let you reminisce a little bit and share your most treasured Apple Cup memories. Pass them on. Before you do, however, check out the link with all we could find today.


• Washington State: The second of our family ties – I used to love that show when it was on in the ‘80s, but now, when I see a syndicated version, I wonder what I was thinking – stories is on the Lockers. You can find it here (can’t seem to get our website to update at 7 in the morning). Today, we’ll be doing the Trufants and tomorrow the Elisaras. … Speaking of family ties, Todd Milles highlighted another one. Seems to be a common theme this season. … We have our other story, based on a conversation with Jim Sterk, and notes here. There is also an advance of the basketball this weekend, which is the subject of this piece. … Sterk also did this interview with freelancer Howie Stalwick. … As we told you Monday in these notes, Kevin Lopina will start at quarterback for WSU. That news is the lead to this notebook. … This notebook begins with comments from Tony Thompson, who won’t be able to play. He’s one of four Cougars – Dan Spitz, B.J. Guerra and Johnny Forzani are the others – dealing with concussions this week. … Finally, the TNT’s John McGrath laments the lack of Apple Cup trash talk.

• Around the Pac-10:’s Ted Miller has his usual wide-ranging items, including his weekly picks and what to watch. … Buster Sports’ Nick Daschel writes Washington not only has to win this week, the Huskies have to do it in style. … Washington: There never has been a Husky freshman rush for 1,000 yards in a season. Chris Polk, a redshirt frosh, has a good chance this year with two games left. … Oregon State: Last year’s beat down by the Ducks still hurts. … Oregon: I can’t remember the last time a point after, and another pretty ugly kick, received this much ink. … California: Jahvid Best might play against UW or he might not. Even Jeff Tedford’s not sure. … Stanford: The Cardinal might play their bowl game near campus. … USC: Rivalry games some how help players get healthy. …UCLA: The Bruins’ special teams have really been special this season. … Arizona State: Another rivalry game without a lot of buzz. … Arizona: The Wildcats have some depth at running back.


• That’s all we have for this morning. We’ll be back in the afternoon with practice notes and our story. Until then …
