Blanchette: EWU Eagle Flies Coop

Grateful farewells and perturbed asides go down together like bourbon and butane, but that was the cocktail of choice on Vernon Adams’ getaway day. Eastern Washington’s quicksilver quarterback turned foregone conclusion into reality Monday, tweeting out his pledge to transfer to the University of Oregon for his last season of college football and first semester of grad school. Team Eagle put on its happiest face for its (former) guy, though you’ve never heard grins gnash like this. Or gallows humor so mordant. “I’ll be honest, (this) can be a little frustrating,” said EWU football coach Beau Baldwin. “I don’t see myself finding my next quarterback at Linfield.” Ka-boom/John Blanchette, SR.
