Championship Monday in Pullman


FROM PULLMAN — Didn't realize until I pulled out the record books yesterday afternoon just how rare it is for a Big East team to come out here. In fact, Pittsburgh is about to become the first team to face WSU in Pullman as a member of the Big East. Ever. That counts former members, too. Read on for more.

Getting to know Pittsburgh


FROM PULLMAN — With the rare occasion of a Big East team coming to town, we decided to ask Ray Fittipaldo, the Pittsburgh beat writer for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, to answer a few questions about the Panthers. He obliged.

Hoops, football about to overlap

Getting to know Wyoming


FROM PULLMAN — We haven't done a question-and-answer session with an opposing team's beat writer in quite a while. But since Robert Gagliardi of the Wyoming Tribune-Eagle made himself available this week, we asked him a few questions about the Cowboys. Read on for his answers.
