Editorial: WSU fumbles response to crime issue

WSU’s brand has been damaged, and President Shulz should at least say that something is seriously wrong when so many athletes are running afoul of the law. If the university is handling this issue well, then why so many arrests?

Athletic director Bill Moos likes to say that merit and the market are the factors he uses to determine coaching salaries, but there is also a preventative consideration.

John Blanchette: Future WSU football schedules dressed for success

The gesture by Washington State to make complimentary – just the right word – tickets to the Cougars’ football opener today available to area firefighters is dialed in, generous and noble. And, yes, the obvious fact that a surplus of tickets remain unsold made the opportunity possible. Hey, it’s still Labor Day weekend in lake country. The opponent is still Portland State. College football is still an outing in Pullman and not a religion as in Columbus or College Station.

Wildfires may force WSU football to move opener

PULLMAN – The wildfires that have ravaged Eastern Washington during this abnormally hot and dry summer have been a thorn in Bill Moos’ side. The fires threatened the ranch near Spokane owned by the Washington State athletic director, and he recently took his family to a barn dance that may as well have been held in one of his meat smokers. And now, the fires might threaten his football team’s home opener against the Portland State Vikings. The air quality in Pullman is a real concern, and the Cougars have already moved one practice indoors because the Air Quality Index (AQI) was above 150 – any number higher is considered unhealthy.
