COUGARS • UPDATED: 10 A.M.; 2:30 P.M. We got up early to watch the Ryder Cup, which means I'm already hoarse. But instead of yelling at Stewart Cink for missing putts, we decided to get our morning post done. Read on. UPDATE: Though this weekend's...

COUGARS We're done with Washington State football coach Paul Wulff's post mortem on the UCLA game and have our follow story for tomorrow's S-R done as well. We also have a few more thoughts on the links, so read on.

COUGARS After watching the Cougars' offense almost do enough to overcome a UCLA rushing attack that covered more ground than Patton, we left the Rose Bowl and caught the second half of a Division III football game. But we still have more thoughts on Washington...

COUGARS It's game day in Southern California – or SoCal as the hip and informed call it – which means we have a lot of items related to Washington State's battle with UCLA in the Rose Bowl. Well, maybe a lot is stretching it. Read...

COUGARS It's late, I know, but that's what happens when you have to catch a couple early flights to Los Angeles. Whoever scheduled both Washington State and UW in Los Angeles the same weekend probably got a little kickback from Alaska Airlines. Anyhow, we have...

COUGARSWe're back with the second in our series of preseason basketball Q&As. Today's subject is Washington State center DeAngelo Casto, one of the leaders of a team that has no seniors. Read on.

COUGARS By definition this isn't an Indian summer, because we never really had a freeze. But it is summer in early fall, which might be the best time of the year in the Palouse. The days are warm, the nights cool and football is being...

COUGARS • UPDATED: 9:45 A.M. Being without a computer for a day is like being without your hair – no, I'm used to that. So it's more like making do without your brain, and all evidence to the contrary, I'm not used to that. Yesterday...

COUGARS We're having some Internet problems at Casa Grippi, so the usual (virtual) trip around the West Coast is taking almost as long as a real one. So our morning post is not going to be filled with as many nuggets as usual. What the...

COUGARS • UPDATED: 8:25 P.M. A quick post on the departure of graduate assistant Chad Eaton from the Washington State program. Read on for an unedited version of our story. UPDATE: We also have our follow on the USC game on the link.

COUGARS Get a cup of coffee. Grab a Danish. Strap yourself to your chair. There's a lot to cover this morning, and we're not just talking about the rest of the Pac-10. We're talking about Washington State's debacle yesterday against USC and the rest of...

COUGARS Early in the week, it was hard to see this one coming. But as the day dawned today it finally hit me that Washington State was playing a team with a bunch of horses up front, horses that haven't played all that well. Well...

COUGARS A quick halftime post, with WSU trailing USC 28-13. The Trojans have 312 yards of total offense in the first half despite trailing by 5 minutes in time of possession. USC has 11 plays of more than 10 yards. The Cougars are moving the...

COUGARS It's your typical Saturday morning with one huge exception. It's typical in that there are enough previews, notebooks and features available from around the conference to keep you busy until game time. It's atypical because the Washington State game time is noon, so you...

COUGARS You know, even though the last six months haven't been kind to the University of Southern California football program, in a lot of ways USC is still USC. There is a cachet to the name, a ring to it. Say it just right and...
