Your views on the Apple Cup


One more day to Apple Cup 2009. It's now your turn to weigh in with thoughts about the outcome. Most people I talk with are resigned to a loss, but how do you feel about? After you check out the morning post, share your thoughts.

• Washington State: We're finally done with our family connections series, finishing up with this story. ... The Cougar flag takes front and center, or at least right behind Chris Fowler, in this Bud Withers story. ... Another family piece from the Times. ... Wondering how Brandon Gibson is doing? wonder no longer. ... Jim Moore argues with himself over the Cougars' chances.

• Around the Pac-10: Withers takes a spin around the nation. ... Washington: Steve Kelley offers a speech to Steve Sarkisian for this weekend. ... Oregon State: You have to recruit your state if you want to be the best in the state. ... Oregon: An outsider with an outsiders' point of view. ... California: Nothing. ... Stanford: The biggest news from the Bay Area? It's about the Notre Dame coach's future. Sort of weird. ... USC: It looks like the Trojans will have Joe McKnight back next year. ...UCLA: Brian Price? He may not be back. ... Arizona State: Guess what? Another quarterback story. ... Arizona: Another state, another rivalry.


• That's what we have for this morning. We'll be back this afternoon with our game-day stuff and then this evening with basketball coverage. Until then …
