Washington State University dreamed and spent big on its new football operations building in the hope that the lavish facility will help the Cougars compete with their better-financed opponents. The football team will eat, dress, lift weights, train and receive medical attention in the $61 million, five-story, 84,192-square-foot facility, which stands behind Martin Stadium’s west end zone.
The modern history of track and field at Washington State can be measured in eras, and it does not take very long to list them. Since 1946 there have been three men’s track and field coaches at WSU: Jack Mooberry, John Chaplin and Rick Sloan. Sloan coached the men’s and women’s teams, as well as cross country.
PULLMAN – Legends came off the books Sunday at Mooberry Track. John van Reenen, Gabriel Tiacoh, George Ogbeide and Tony Li – eight NCAA and 11 conference championships among them, plus a world record and Olympic silver. And no longer owners of the best performances on record at their old home loop at Washington State.
Bill Moos is meticulous, everything in its proper place. He notices a coaster is missing and adjusts a chair before beginning an interview. Not the chair he will sit in, mind you, simply a chair in his office that isn’t where it needs to be. The former retiree, who came back to his alma mater after supposedly wrapping up his career at the University of Oregon, is clinically organized, famously so for his lists.
PULLMAN – The Washington State football team will host Eastern Washington on Sept. 15, 2018, in Martin Stadium the school announced on Wednesday. The Eagles will also travel to WSU for a game on Sept. 3, 2016.
Wednesday: One of the rites of Spring, with a capital “S,” is watching the Masters on television. It’s coming up, but it won’t be the same. Not with Tiger Woods sidelined. Years ago, when Tiger was just beginning to make his mark on professional golf, someone asked Jack Nicklaus if this was the guy who was going to break his record of 18 professional major wins. Nicklaus answered in the affirmative, but had a qualifier. If he stays healthy, the greatest golfer of all time said.
PULLMAN — For one day at least, Bill Moos’ wish came true: people cared about men’s basketball again at Washington State. Nudged along by free pizza and T-shirts, more students showed up at Bohler Gym to hear Ernie Kent presented as the new basketball coach in a pep rally than showed up for any game at Beasley Coliseum this year.
For one day at least, Bill Moos’ wish came true: people cared about men’s basketball again at Washington State. Nudged along by free pizza and T-shirts, more students showed up at Bohler Gym to hear Ernie Kent presented as the new basketball coach in a pep rally than showed up for any game at Beasley Coliseum this year. And so many media flocked to Beasley for his introductory news conference you would have thought it was football season.
PULLMAN – Bill Moos enjoyed hiring Ernie Kent so much that he decided to do it again. Kent has been hired by Washington State athletic director Moos as the school’s new men’s basketball coach.
So much for the big splash. You could mop this one up with a Kleenex. Not that splash matters anyway. Cannonballs and bellyflops produce the biggest splashes, and how artful is that?
What matters is whether Ernie Kent can do more than tread water at Washington State University. Or whether it’s reasonable to expect more than that on a sustained basis.
