Live chat, and another game day on the Palouse
FROM PULLMAN — If the haze doesn't get any worse, there will definitely be a football game played in Pullman today. OK, so there's probably going to be one played no matter what. But it might not be too pleasant for the spectators. Read on for links and ponderings.
Saw a tweet yesterday from the Pullman Police Department, encouraging folks to stay inside due to the smoke from the fires in Wenatchee that has cast a haze over the city here. Can't say it's been too bothersome in the time I've been outside, but it certainly is noticeable. Still, a school spokesman said yesterday that postponement of the game wasn't a consideration when we spoke, but they were monitoring the situation and would handle it as need be. Maybe bring a respirator, if your lungs aren't keen on the irritation. … Fewer than 1,000 tickets remain. … For today's newspaper, we wrote about WSU having a chance to go 3-1 for the second consecutive season, and included these keys to victory and another story with an update on the stadium renovations. We also posted our pick 'em contest on the blog — very short notice, I know — so go ahead and jump on that if you haven't already. … Howie Stalwick has this preview of the game. … Bud Withers has a preview box in the Seattle Times. … Colorado has nowhere to go but up. … Lastly, as the headline says, we'll be holding a live chat during the game this week. It will begin at noon and end when the game ends. Feel free to stop by and converse.
Around the Pac-12 …
We'll be back with more later, before the game.
