Killian Tillie’s belated entrée into the 2019-20 basketball season came at precisely 6:05 Tuesday evening, greeted with a clamor that made up in volume what it may have lacked in duration.
The Cougars have at least put themselves in the conversation for one of college football’s many consolation prizes, though that’s barely a challenge with 39 bowls. And like every other Power 5 school, Wazzu gave itself a three-win head start with a squishy September schedule.
This grad transfer business – it’s a little like Christmas shopping, right?
Playing actual basketball at both ends. Guarding and everything. With a ... what do they call those again? Oh, right. A plan.
There was a sitcom-worthy moment last week after Gonzaga’s exhibition game romp as a few young Bulldogs relaxed in their locker-room lounge, refueling on some grub and, well, doing what kids do.
John Blanchette: Perhaps it’s time for the Seattle Seahawks to ditch the beloved Haida eagle logo for something more befitting the 2019 season, like the tai chi symbol. You know. Yin and yang.
Ol’ Doc Frankenstein – movie Frankenstein, anyway – had it easy.
Sam Jankovich, who died in his sleep early Wednesday morning at the age of 85, was sometimes brusque, often polarizing, combustible, fiercely loyal. Also wise counsel and enduring friend.
Jason Hanson joins the Inland Northwest Sports Hall of Fame on Tuesday as part of a splendid 2019 class in a ceremony at the Spokane Arena which, alas, he won’t be able to attend. But he will be at a Cougar game in a couple of weeks for induction into the State of Washington Sports Hall of Fame.
His previous four passes had sailed or fallen incomplete, and 20 minutes of clock time into the proceedings at CenturyLink Field, it was apparent that Russell Wilson wasn’t Russell Wilson this day. But it was his next throw that would bring clarity to just what that can mean for the Seattle Seahawks.
Other than Wazzu’s first step into the Pac-12 win column, the best news out of Saturday’s 41-10 drubbing of hapless Colorado was Borghi amassing a career high for touches – 21 – in a splendid evening that included a team-best nine receptions and 105 yards rushing, making him the first WSU running back since Jerome Harrison in 2005 to post three 100-yard games in a season.
On Thursday, the 6-foot-10 senior and presumptive drive train of these Bulldogs underwent surgery on his right knee, and a brief statement from the school said “his status will be evaluated weekly.”
As the sure-thing kick missed by no more than the width of the hyphen between sure and thing, there was one obvious conclusion: It’s better to be lucky than ... well, it’s just better, OK?
Larry Scott can’t get his league’s games on DirecTV, and now he can’t get them on Dish, either. But apparently he has enough pull to harness lightning.
Safe to say that a favorite topic around Sunday’s tailgates was Saturday’s late-night Marx Brothers movie on national TV, featuring a core melt by the Washington State Cougars – turnovers ordered in bulk, tackling slapstick, tempo stubbornness, suspect clock management and a blown 32-point lead. Then the locals had to endure the Seahawks’ various brain locks.
Faux outrage is fun reserved for winners, and surely the Vandals were that on Saturday at the Kibbie Dome – 35-27 over the school up the road, Eastern Washington, which Idaho hadn’t beaten in 20 years, though granted that amounted to just three defeats.
Earl Thomas got himself an interception in his NFL season opener. Richard Sherman had a pick-6. And their old team, the Seattle Seahawks, surrendered 418 passing yards to Andy Dalton, the 20-teens NFL version of Dave Krieg, whom he very much tried to channel Sunday at CenturyLink Field by doing one of those bar-of-soap-in-the-shower numbers with the football.
Look, winning football is a fan magnet, but there’s still a limit for a discerning clientele.
Just another reminder that the old-school household economics learned as mom and dad balanced the checkbook at the kitchen table just don’t have much application in today’s world of college athletics.
All in all, it’s pretty good being Washington State these days, and not just because the scoreboard read 58-7 in the Cougars’ favor on Saturday night.
