Winners and losers from a great Saturday

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Well, that was fun. Even for the one team in the area that didn't post a “W.” And for all of us who got to watch. Read on.

The day after the Apple Cup

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

Who will fly tonight?

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Being it is the Thanksgiving holiday, I contemplated taking the day off. Relaxing, sleeping in and all that. But I couldn't. Not with all the sports news out there. And with the Seahawks' biggest game of the season coming our way this evening. 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.

Hawks block Cardinals’ path to NFC West title – for one day at least

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Ask a group of football coaches what play really swings momentum during a game and you'll get a variety of answers. A kickoff return for a touchdown, one might say, just because of how suddenly it deflates an upbeat team. An interception return for six, another may chime in. But there is one play that seems to pop up in this discussion more than any other. A blocked punt. Read on.

Overlap just makes our laps grow larger

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Want to talk football? It's possible right now because the NFL schedule is in full swing and college football is coming down to the wire. Want to talk basketball? Why not, college basketball is ramping up and the NBA has been going for a while. It's overlap season, that exciting time of the year when all manner of sports fight for your attention with ads for Black Friday sales and snow tires. 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.

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.

As weather cools off, college football talk heats up

A GRIP ON SPORTS

There's a line in the movie “Groundhog Day” that seems appropriate this morning. “It's cold out there every day.” Yes, “every day” has already arrived. And it's not even Thanksgiving. So when you leave the house today, don't forget your booties. Read on.

Not just another day

A GRIP ON SPORTS

It's Veterans Day, which means I should be sharing a story with you about the most important veteran in my life. Read on.

A GRIP ON SPORTS

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

Is Mike Leach looking to make more changes?

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Has Washington State's football season been disappointing? Yes. This was the season the Cougars were supposed to turn the corner, remember? Last year, when WSU earned the right to blow a late lead in the New Mexico Bowl, was a surprise, a season ahead of schedule. This was supposed to be the year of the revival. Nine games in, we all know it didn't happen. So will there be repercussions? 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.

Arizona 3, Washington 0

A GRIP ON SPORTS

There is a movie – sorry, a film – in the multiplexes right now that purports to describe a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. What, they already made a mov, er, film, about Saturday's college football in Washington? Read on.

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 week rolls on to Saturday

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Are we to Wednesday already? That means it is time to go back to work. 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.

Insomnia and football go together these days

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Get to bed early or watch the end of another down-to-the-wire Pac-12 football game? Some choice. We're exhausted this morning. Read on.
