Eric Barriere was among the top Football Championship Subdivision quarterbacks entering a fall 2020 season that was ultimately postponed, truncated and played in a rare spring setting.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • This weekend is going to be a bit weird. No, were not referring to the possibility of a cold, rainy Saturday. That happens in late April around here way too much for my tastes. Nor are we alluding to the M’s facing the Red Sox at a half-empty Fenway Park. Nope, we talking about football. FCS playoff football. With Eastern on the road.
Sixth-ranked NDSU, playing without several of its key components from its 2019 national title team who either entered the transfer portal, opted out of the spring season to enter the NFL Draft or battling an injury, isn't the talent-heavy team it typically is, considering the circumstances.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • We get it. It’s early. There is a long season ahead, full of ups and downs. And the M’s have teased you before in the past 20 years. So there is a hesitancy to embrace what’s been going on at T-Mobile just yet. But, please, just keep an open mind.
Dozens of of departures by athletes and coaches have appeared to compound EWU's well-documented financial issues that have led to talk of the Eagles potentially making cripping cost-cutting measures throughout the entire athletic department.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • Ho hum. Just another Monday, right? Just another one-and-done Gonzaga player leaves and, more than likely, another one signs ups. The way it’s always been. Ya, right.
It was the most difficult decision of their basketball lives, but former Eastern Washington stars Tanner and Jacob Groves are happy they chose Oklahoma.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • How does that Beatles song go again? “You say goodbye and I say hello?” Yep, that’s it. And that’s probably what’s happening this morning with Gonzaga basketball.
Tanner Groves, who scored 35 points against the Jayhawks in Eastern Washington's first-round NCAA Tournament loss last month, is headed to the Big 12 Conference after committing to Oklahoma
Four seniors on the Eastern Washington football team – linebackers Ty Graham and Jack Sendelbach, defensive end Jusstis Warren and offensive center Conner Crist – have been recognized by The National Football Foundation & College Hall of Fame as members of the 2021 NFF Hampshire Honor Society.
Eastern Washington will travel to North Dakota State in the first round of the Football Championship Subdivision Playoffs at the Fargodome.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • Let’s see what is on tap for today. Spend some time reading the Sunday paper. That’s a given. Wait for the eldest son to return from his second vaccine shot and hope he feels well enough to enjoy his scheduled round of golf. Turn into ESPNU and see where Eastern Washington is headed in the FCS playoffs. Watch the M’s and the Astros. That’s more than enough, isn’t it?
A GRIP ON SPORTS • We had a disagreement on what to watch last night. On one hand, the Mariners were hosting the Astros and we really wanted to hear all the booing. (Let’s be clear. It was booing of the visiting team.) Someone else in the house wanted to watch the Sounders’ season opener against Minnesota. Thankfully, we were able to watch the best of both.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • There must be a correlation. The weekend TV schedule is a bit light. That’s OK, though. It is supposed to be in the 70s around these parts this weekend, with the sun showing itself for at least some of it. It’s a trade off we’ll be happy to make from now until football season begins, right?
A GRIP ON SPORTS • Sitting in a pile of papers on my desk is a worn yellow legal pad. On it is a whole bunch of lines, circles and squiggles. The type of scratches that is actually informative if you know how to break the code. Tommy Lloyd’s code.
The Eagles added former Central Arkansas guard Rylan Bergersen, a 6-foot-6 senior who earned All-Southland Conference honors last season.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • There are always holes in the sports schedule in April. Big events, sure, but the month also features days when it seems as if little is going on. Thankfully, we’ve adapted over the years and are willing to mine out-of-the-way places to get you your daily fix. Like Pullman.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • Bloomsday wasn’t in May last year. It wasn’t even in the spring, held virtually in September thanks to the coronavirus pandemic. This year it will combine the virtual nature of last year with the usual timeline of spring to give us a hybrid event. That’s how you make lemonade out of the year’s many lemons.
In a coronavirus-altered season where dozens of the nation's FCS teams -- even Big Sky powers Montana and Montana State -- opted out of the rare spring season, the Eagles appear to have the sort of resume that will extend its strange but electric campaign.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • Sometimes the key moments in the morning revolve around game results or scores. Sometimes they don’t. This fine Sunday morning is one of the latter. We’re examining more off-field items than those occurring on.
