Friday links


The Washington State basketball team will be back in action tomorrow in Kennewick. We try to get back in the swing of things with a few Pac-12 links this morning. Read on.

The day before Gonzaga


FROM PULLMAN — There's a big basketball game here tomorrow night, and we have some information on that front. But there are also a few football notes and links to pass along. Read on.

EWU and Big Sky links

It's Senior Day at Eastern Washington, which hopes this won't be the last home game this year. A win today vs. UC Davis and next week at Portland State will do the trick. A Big Sky title is also possible, but the Eagles need some help as Northern Arizona is still perfect in the conference. Here's a feature on the Lumberjacks' kicker, Andy Wilder. …Also in the chase is Montana State, which hosts Portland State today … So is Cal Poly, which is coming off a loss at Eastern last week and figures to take it out on Idaho State. Meanwhile, ISU coach Mike Kramer will not face criminal charges from an incident last month in which he shoved a player. The goals are more modest at Montana, which visits Weber State today.

Time for prep postseason football

Call this a prep playoff primer. Or, everything else I couldn’t get into our postseason information box today. And a few other things. Pictured above is Coeur d'Alene running back/linebacker Reece Mahaffy two weeks ago against Lake City.

And as always, feel free to comment. What are your predictions for the games this week?

EWU football and Live Chat

We'll have a live chat on all things EWU football at noon today with S-R reporter Jim Allen (that's me). Also this morning, here is my first Big Sky notebook, and my feature yesterday on EWU defensive tackle Evan Cook. Today, our WSU beat writer, Christian Caple weighs in what the Cougars need to do in the running game.

EWU opponents are busy

While the Eagles opened their first two-a-day practice on Monday (here is my story and blog post), the Eagles have been nusy as well. Here is the latest from the Palouse and the Big Sky Conference:

EWU practice report, Day 8

Yes, this really is Day 8, since the conditioning and orientation sessions last Monday and Tuesday count toward the NCAA-mandated maximum of 29 practices. Actually, two-a-days count as two practices and there are five of them, so the Eagles have 25 practice days before Idaho. … The Eagles had a great practice Monday morning, especially if your name is Kyle Padron or Demetrius Bronson.

EWU two a days … and then some

The Eastern Washington University football team begins two-a-days this morning, and in that spirit, we'll try to step it up as well, with a morning blog on SportsLInk, a practice report and an evening blog, also on SportsLink. And follow me on Twitter at @srjimallen for up-to-the-second updates continuing this morning. And in case you missed it, here was my last report on practice and my post-practice blog Friday afternoon:

Meanwhile, future Eagle opponents have been busy as well …

EWU football camp, Day 2

I've just filed my story from Day 2 of camp, which is mostly a look at some of the incoming freshmen. Look for it online shortly and on your doorstep tomorrow morning. … Thursday's two-hour session was definitely ramped up in tempo; throw in some high humidity and shoulder pads, and the sweat was pouring and the drinking water running …

EWU football live chat today at noon

Please join me at noon, right here, for a live chat on Eastern football. In the meantime, here are links to some recent EWU-related stories, including last night's announcement by former SMU quarterback Kyle Padron that he has been cleared to play football this fall at EWU.

EWU drills get more physical

We are halfway through spring drills at Eastern, and also with our eight-part series on the different unit. Here's a link to my story today on the offensive line . Tomorrow, space permitting, you can expect the same treatment on a defensive line that should be very strong.

Meanwhile, I spent Tuesday afternoon at practice, which everyone agreed was the most physical of the spring,

Cougs roll on with the spring


FROM PULLMAN — With so little else going on right now, two days away from spring football almost feels like a week. But WSU is back at it today with its 12th practice of the spring, the first of two this week before Saturday's spring game. As usual, we'll be there. And as usual, we have some links and whatnot.

EWU begins spring drills

The Eagles opened spring drills Tuesday afternoon, and here's my story from Roos Field, where I will be again this afternoon (wearing snow boots, judging by what I see outside this morning). I will also be sending regular Tweets, so please follow me at @srjimallen.

Meanwhile, the rest of the Big Sky Conference is gearing up for spring ball…

EWU hires running backs coach

On the day of their first spring practice , the Eastern Washington Eagles completed their coaching staff Tuesday with the hiring of running backs coach Kiel McDonald.

McDonald is the third new coach Eastern has hired since last season. The Eagles earlier added cornerbacks coach Cherokee Valeria and tight ends/offensive tackles coach Brian Strandley.
