Eagles will fly in Corvallis tomorrow


When Eastern Washington opens the college football season tomorrow night in Corvallis, the game will have special meaning to Eagle running back Ryan Cole. If you want to know why, read Dave Trimmer's feature from today's paper.

There is more on the game on Dave's EWU blog.

Dave's blog, Glenn Kasses' Cougar blog and Jim Meehan's Vandal blog all have links to the numerous college football stories we ran today in our preview section. But there is one story I wanted to link to myself. It's John Blanchette's piece concernng old/new Idaho coach Dennis Erickson and his connections throughout college football.

As usual, over on the other side of the mountains, there are numerous stories about the Huskies, including this Times' piece on quarterback Isaiah Stanback and Bob Condotta's blog post on Saturday's opponent, San Jose State. Everett also looks at the Spartans.

The best of the rest is Don Ruiz's story in the News Tribune concerning freshman running back Paul Homer.
