As I'm writing this the snow is falling on the South Hill in Spokane. Thoughts turn to trimming the tree and who the heck can handle the snow in tomorrow's FCS playoff game between Eastern Washington and Illinois State. Eagle wide receiver Nick Edwards can handle anything, as this story shows. So can Jeff Minnerly, who can handle a double-major while getting a 3.78 GPA and playing high-caliber college football. In basketball, the Idaho Vandals can surely handle adversity, rallying from a 17-point deficit to beat Eastern Washington in overtime. Me? I can handle a few questions, as long as they're easy. Here's the transcript from our Live Chat on Eastern football.
