There’s another ground floor being built in Cheney

A GRIP ON SPORTS

It seemed as if last night was a good night to watch a college basketball game live. It was. Read on.

The day after the Apple Cup

A GRIP ON SPORTS • UPDATED: 10:10 A.M.

We're finally ready to post our usual combination of thoughts, links and cat videos. Read on.

It all seemed a little out of place

A GRIP ON SPORTS

There is a time and place for everything. Sometimes, even mature adults get that mixed up. Read on.

Eagles fly higher than they ever have before

A GRIP ON SPORTS

There's a fun game to play in the local sports bar with your buddies. You know the one I'm talking about, where you pick a subject and argue for hours. The most dominant Seattle Mariner pitcher? The Seahawk who meant the most to the franchise? Most entertaining Apple Cup? Well today we have a subject that, while interesting, wouldn't lead to a long discussion. Best non-conference win in Eastern Washington basketball history? Read on.

What time is the right time?

A GRIP ON SPORTS

What time is the right time to start a college football game? Is it 11 in the morning? Or 1:30 in the afternoon? How about 7:30 at night? Read on.

Zags have already tasted some success

A GRIP ON SPORTS

It's not easy putting a team together from what basically is scratch. Taking less than a handful of returning players and using them as the base, mixing in new faces in the starting lineup and off the bench. It's not the usual recipe for success. But Mark Few and the Zags seem to be cooking already. Read on.

Winning out isn’t all that easy

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Want to know what the dumbest statement in all of sports is right now? “If they win out.” Using the term in relationship to college football is just plain silly. Nobody “wins out” anymore. Well, except maybe one team. Read on.

Another busy Friday night – and day

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Friday was the night the lights were turned on in college basketball arenas all over America. It was also, as usual for the fall, a high school football night. Read on.

College basketball is back – thank goodness

A GRIP ON SPORTS – ON THE ROAD

The band is setting up, the fans are, slowly, beginning to wander in as we are about 45 minutes away from the college basketball season beginning. In Cheney. Who knew that would be the spot? Read on.

Felix’s numbers didn’t come up this time

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Just when you think you have baseball's postseason award voters figured out, the target moves again. As that long-time Red Sox fan Ralph Waldo Emerson once wrote, foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds. The hobgoblins took down Felix Hernandez this time. Or was it the little minds? I'm not sure. Read on.

What a Saturday

A GRIP ON SPORTS

It was a pretty eventful Saturday around here. Did you enjoy it? We certainly did. Read on.

Falk gets his chance for Cougars

A GRIP ON SPORTS

A new era in Washington State football begins today in Corvallis. It may be a three-game “era” or it may last longer. Today's game won't completely determine that, but it will go a long way in the decision. Read on.

Yes, the college football season is nearing the end

A GRIP ON SPORTS

I know this can be hard to swallow, but the college football season is winding down. Really. Read on.

Cross country races can stay with you for a while

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Of all athletic endeavors, running seems to be the most basic. Just about everyone has done it at some point in their life, whether it was in competition or just to get to the fridge quick enough to get back in time to watch a game-winning field goal. Basic. But running, as is practiced in a cross country race, is anything but. There's more strategy than the average Joe imagines. And more drama. Read on.

A sad day in the Palouse

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Why is it the saddest days always seem to be accompanied by rain? A gloomy day filled with gloomy news. That was Saturday. Read on.

Sometimes you just have to tip your cap

A GRIP ON SPORTS

I'm not really sure what to write about today. The weather, maybe. We are supposed to have a 60-degree day, which is nice. Or should I do something related to WSU or Eastern? Hey, I know. How about some cross country or tennis? Anything but baseball. Read on.

All eyes this weekend will be on …

A GRIP ON SPORTS

You know what happens this weekend? Summer ends, in a metaphysical way. See, this is the last weekend of baseball. The last gasp of summer's game. Of course, it won't be that big a deal. Saturday the nation's eyes will not be turned to Joe Dimaggio's successors, they will be tuned-in to Knute Rockne's descendants. And Sunday will be, as always, about the NFL. 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.

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.
