One day til Spokane

COUGARS

FROM PULLMAN — We're officially one day away from the spring game, but we've got a few loose ends to tie up here in Pullman before driving to Coeur d'Alene later today. Visiting a friend there before Saturday's big scrimmage. Read on for some links, because there are a few.

One more practice before the real(ish) thing

COUGARS

FROM PULLMAN — WSU practices this afternoon for the 13th time this spring — and the final time before perhaps the most anticipated spring game in the history of the program. (The Cougars do have another practice scheduled for the following Tuesday, though I'm guessing that won't receive as much attention.)

Cougs roll on with the spring

COUGARS

FROM PULLMAN — With so little else going on right now, two days away from spring football almost feels like a week. But WSU is back at it today with its 12th practice of the spring, the first of two this week before Saturday's spring game. As usual, we'll be there. And as usual, we have some links and whatnot.

Slowing toward summer

COUGARS

FROM PULLMAN — We're getting to that time of year when things start to slow down around the Pac-12 football and basketball landscape. Sure, the Cougars still have three more practices and a spring game to play. And there are still some basketball recruits who have yet to sign letters of intent. But the news is becoming more and more scant each day. Still, we have links, so read on.

Another Saturday, another scrimmage

COUGARS

FROM PULLMAN — Saturday was a special day. It marked the final practice of Washington State's spring that began before 10:30 a.m. Not complaining. But still a positive note. Read on for more notes.

An early(ish) Saturday awaits

COUGARS

FROM PULLMAN — Saw a funny tweet from a WSU athlete yesterday. It came from women's basketball player Sage Romberg, who said: “Whoa everyone and their mothers are in Pullman!” In case you didn't know, it's Mom's Weekend here. But there are other things going on, too, such as another football scrimmage this morning. Read on.

Heading toward the stretch run

COUGARS

Cougars about to hit the two-thirds mark

COUGARS

Live Chat, plus more WSU news on a Wednesday

COUGARS

FROM PULLMAN --  Washington State is 60 percent of the way through its spring football practice schedule. We got 100 percent of the way through these links this morning. Oops. Already used that joke, and it wasn't funny the first time. Moving on.

Some links for your Sunday

COUGARS

FROM PULLMAN — It's Sunday, the sun is supposed to be shining, and the Cougars have the day off from football practice. Might head over to Moscow for a bite at the Breakfast Club to celebrate the occasion. But first, some links.

Whoa, we’re halfway there

COUGARS

FROM PULLMAN — Anything for a Bon Jovi reference. WSU will surpass the halfway point of spring football practice with a scrimmage later this afternoon at Martin Stadium. As usual, we'll be there. For now, your daily dose of links and whatnot.

Links on the day before your weekend

Another day, another WSU practice

COUGARS

FROM PULLMAN — After a day off, WSU will be back on the field this afternoon for its seventh practice of the spring. Which means it will be really nice outside. Or snowing. We'll see.

A quiet Monday on the WSU front

COUGARS

FROM PULLMAN — Another week, another three spring football practices. But there isn't one today, and there wasn't one yesterday, so we don't have a whole lot of WSU news for you. There are still links to pass along, though. And hey, you've got a national championship game to watch tonight.

Motum’s in a suit, but not suited up

COUGARS

FROM PULLMAN — We're on press row preparing to cover WSU's final game at Beasley Coliseum this season (for real, this time). And, as expected, the Cougars will be without leading scorer Brock Motum.

Spring ball means more snow

COUGARS

FROM PULLMAN — The sun came out and the sky was blue when the Cougars began spring football practice on Thursday. But the night ended with me scraping snow off my windshield. Yep, it's spring time on the Palouse. Read on for our coverage.

Hoops, football about to overlap

COUGARS

FROM PULLMAN — With the basketball team on the road in Corvallis and spring football practice about to begin, it figures that it would snow enough to muck up the roads in Pullman. It has until Thursday to burn off, or else WSU is going to be practicing in the white stuff. Read on, because we have plenty of links.

The game that was, CBI edition: WSU 89, San Francisco 75

COUGARS

FROM PULLMAN — We're back at the apartment after spending the last two-plus hours at Applebee's, where we watched the Cougars beat San Francisco, 89-75, in the first round of the College Basketball Invitational.

Day after selection Sunday, Cougs head south

COUGARS

FROM PULLMAN — The dust has settled after another selection Sunday. But selection Sunday means a heck of a lot more selections than it used to. The Cougars were selected by the CBI, along with Oregon State. Four Pac-12 teams were selected by the NIT. And two are headed to the big dance. That's eight conference teams in postseason play. Hey, who said the Pac-12 was down? Wait. Don't answer that. Instead, read on.
