From Pullman — It was a return to the spotlight for the Washington State football team, which played its spring game yesterday in Spokane in front of a few thousand fans and anyone who wanted to watch it on TV (except you poor DirecTV subscribers). As far as spring games go, it was another one. The Crimson appeared to be the better squad but the game made a game of it once it stopped turning the ball over. I wrote a game story and put up a blog post with some additional thoughts from the game. John Blanchette says that WSU's secondary proved its mettle during the game. Hard to argue with four picks.
From Pullman — The Washington State football team will hold its annual Crimson and Gray game at 1 p.m. tomorrow in Spokane's Joe Albi Stadium. The event will be televised by the Pac-12 Networks and is one of the final spring games of the year. Coach Mike Leach has said he wants a competitive game and has split the team into two rosters of roughly equal talent.
It will be a regular game with a normal scoring format, i.e, no points for interceptions, etc. The first two 15-minute quarters will be timed regularly, while the final two will have a running clock. Expect to see more of the younger players in the final 30 plays or so. Parking and admission to the game is free.
Rosters are after the jump.
FROM SPOKANE — Only one spring practice remains before WSU heads into the next phase of its offseason. For now, we look back at yesterday's spring game with the following links.
FROM SPOKANE — This post is brought to you by a Starbucks in Shadle Park, where we've sought refuge after the gates of Joe Albi Stadium were apprently on the verge of closing. Keep reading for more notes and such from another riveting spring game, which the Gray team won, 22-21.
FROM SPOKANE — It's that time again. Time for WSU's spring game. We're here in Spokane to cover it, and have links after the jump.
FROM PULLMAN — Had a rather lengthy post written — taking a look back at Saturday's scrimmage, tons of notes, tons of links. Then my computer froze and I lost the whole thing, because I'm an idiot, mainly, and didn't save anything, and also because the universe hates me. Or it does today, anyway. Sigh. Read on.
FROM SPOKANE — Albi Stadium is empty and we're leaving for fear of getting locked inside, so this post will be short for now. We'll be back later with plenty more from the scrimmage.
FROM SPOKANE — We're in the press box at Albi Stadium, where fans are enjoying the various concessions available, as well as some bouncy-house type activities for the kids. Pretty laid-back feel so far. More like a carnival than a football game, for the time being.
FROM COEUR d'ALENE — We're visiting a friend in this fine city in Idaho before heading over to Albi Stadium, but we've also got some links and news for you before the day begins in earnest. Read on.
