Gonzaga poised to have a special year

A GRIP ON SPORTS

There have been rumblings up around Boone St. and Hamilton Ave. You know, about how this may just be the best team Mark Few's put together at Gonzaga.

Arizona 3, Washington 0

A GRIP ON SPORTS

A decently early day of college football

A GRIP ON SPORTS

You know what will be happening tonight in the local college football scene around 9 p.m.? For the first time this year, nothing. Nada. Zilch. Read on.

The area’s college football scene has a bit of everything

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Are we blessed around here or what? We have four college football teams, all playing a different level of the game, all with varying degrees of fan support, but none on the outskirts of the game. That isn't the way it is everywhere. Read on.

The Hawks are just average right now

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Who was it that said, “you are what your record says you are?” Or something to that effect? Read on.

A road block may be ahead this morning

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Sunday mornings are usually the pivot point for the football weekend. We look back, we look ahead. Not this morning. No rearview mirror today. We're headed full speed down the highway. Destination: St. Louis. Read on.

Fall football always finds a way to entertain

A GRIP ON SPORTS

The yard is ready for winter. Well, the lawn is. Now if the darn leaves would just fall, I could settle in for a couple months of football watching before having to shovel snow. Read on.

The lies the men in blazers told us …

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Is even the specter of the college football playoffs ruining the regular season? Ha. Read on.

Take a breath; it isn’t as bad as feared

A GRIP ON SPORTS

In the world of the NFL, seldom are our worst fears realized. Monday was an example of that. Read on.

Is another long season already in the cards?

A GRIP ON SPORTS

One of my post-retirement, make-the-ends-meet jobs is providing commentary on the Washington State football postgame call-in show. Last night was no exception. But in a sense it was. Read on.

Are you ready for some college football?

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Remember that really cool book, movie and television show, “Friday Night Lights?” It was all about Pac-12 football, wasn't it? Read on.

A birthday is rarely perfect, but it can strike the right chord

We watched four hours for that?

Is it one and done around here?

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Alabama can lose one, maybe two games, and still will be in the hunt. Texas A&M can have a loss. Ditto Auburn. Heck, LSU and Georgia are still in the national playoff picture and they've already lost. But Oregon loses last night and it's kaput. Done. Finished. Well, maybe not. Read on.

Wait, it’s what time?

A GRIP ON SPORTS

I knew yesterday today was going to be a bad day. Even wrote it here. And I was right. Read on.

Breaking the rules occasionally pays off

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Any list of best or greatest managers in Seattle Mariners' history begins and ends with one name: Lou Piniella. That's how it should be. But last night, Lloyd McClendon went against one of Piniella's cardinal rules and it worked. Boy, did it ever work. Read on.

A big weekend is ahead

A GRIP ON SPORTS

The Seahawks are playing the Broncos in a rematch from last year's Super Bowl, the Cougars host No. 2 Oregon, the Mariners face a key series at Houston in their chase for a postseason berth for the first time in 13 years and there are a bunch of other games. Too bad I won't be around. Read on.

Talk about missing the mark …
