A Turkey Day WSU post


Thanks for your Apple Cup memories. If you want to add yours, just click here. But now it’s Thanksgiving and I want to get to other things. Family for one. Football for another. And the morning post for a third. Read on.


• Washington State: We have our third story in our series this morning, this one on the Trufants. Too bad I couldn’t get a hold of Marcus, despite numerous – and I mean numerous – attempts over three weeks. … We also had our Pac-10 picks, which are guaranteed to start your holiday weekend with a laugh. … Freelancer Howie Stalwick has this feature on Xavier Hicks.

• Around the Pac-10: Buster Sports’ Nick Daschel makes his picks for the weekend. … Bob Condotta takes a look at the youth in the conference. … Washington: Let’s see. There is this piece on a couple of teammates with WSU connections and this one on the same subject. … Oregon State: Talk about Duck hunting. … Oregon: One of the key figures in Duck football is Kenny Wheaton. His story is not an easy one. … California: Nothing. … Stanford: The Cardinal have a pretty promising freshman class. … USC: Looking at Pete Carroll’s history against the Bruins. …UCLA: The Bruins make a change in the offensive line. … That group should have been out protecting the Bruin statue. … Arizona State: Dennis Erickson has picked his quarterback for this week. … Arizona: Nick Foles is like most college quarterback. He’s a film buff.


• That’s all we have for this morning. Before we say goodbye today, I want you to know how thankful I am for the readers of this blog. You folks make this job a lot easier because you understand and respect the tone of the blog and each other. OK, every once in a while you guys want to spit in each others’ eyes, but most of the time your are civil, intelligent – unlike the blog moderator – and articulate – again, unlike the guy in charge. So thanks. Keep up the good work. But don’t be afraid to express your opinions. … That’s all I wanted to say, except have a great Thanksgiving and go ahead, eat too much. We’ll be back tomorrow. Until then …
