A cup of coffee and WSU links


What a beautiful morning. As I look out from the dining room I can see buds on the plants, a little yellow bird flitting around the new growth and sunshine everywhere. Another perfect day in the Northwest. As I look around the Net I see a few links here and there about WSU. We have them on the link. Read on.

• We posted our stories last evening but we'll give you the S-R links here as well. There is our scrimmage piece and there is our article on Jim Sterk's Apple Cup thoughts. The long versions of these stories can be found on last night's post, which also includes a Steve Kelley column link. ... S-R columnist John Blanchette weighed in this morning with his thoughts on Sterk's future in this column. ... Freelancer Howie Stalwick had this story about Sterk's remarks in the News Tribune and other West Side newspapers. It also includes some scrimmage notes. ... UPDATE: The News Tribune's John McGrath has his point of view in this column. ... That's about it for football coverage. The S-R had this college baseball roundup. It leads with WSU's win over Arizona, lifting the Cougars to 7-4 in the Pac-10.


• That's it for this morning. We'll be back if events warrant. Until then …
