WSU from the road


A real quick blog post this morning as we are in Seattle waiting for our flight to Texas. We’ve got our stories on the link. Read on.


• Washington State: We’ll start with basketball, because we want to add some football notes. We had this story out of the Pac-10 media day in Los Angeles, though we watched on the Net just like most of you. Wish we could pass along more, but the pickings are slim. … From football, we have our story on how the Notre Dame game came about. John Blanchette has this column highlighting the television differences between WSU and the Irish. Great for the channel surfer. … Otherwise, wanted to pass on a couple things from yesterday, including the news Paul Wulff shared during his press conference. It seems that LeAndre Daniels’ broken leg is healing faster than expected and the redshirt freshman might be back for Oregon State and the Apple Cup. That would help a depleted secondary. … Otherwise, not much what Wulff said was new except, in a later conversation, he passed on the thought Alex Hoffman-Ellis had done well at practice. He explained a player that lacks experience, like Hoffman-Ellis does, takes a little longer to bounce back practice and scheme-wise when they miss practice time. Expect Hoffman-Ellis to play a lot Saturday. … That’s about the limit of my available time, so we’ll sign off. I’ll post my game day items and our advance, centered around senior linebacker Jason Stripling, this evening from my hotel in San Antonio. And no, it’s not on the RiverWalk.
