No revelations from Cougs or Commish

Pacific-10/12 Conference commissioner Larry Scott made a drive-by – he would turn up across the state at Oregon State-Washington later Saturday night – to speak eloquently about the revenue sharing/division splitting issues without saying anything at all.

Blanchette: Can’t duck Cougars’ progress

If Wazzu was overmatched in its 43-23 loss to the Ducks at Martin Stadium – and, yes, that’s still the case – the Ducks did not have to be coaxed into recognizing that something is different about the Cougars, even as some of the crimson constituency is reluctant to believe it or dismisses it as too little, too late.

John Blanchette: No defense for WSU’s

If Reggie Bush had played against a defense like Washington State’s, he would have been too sheepish to accept the Heisman Trophy in the first place, never mind being shamed into returning it.

Grays fingerprints all over this one

LAS VEGAS – His right elbow was Saran wrapped in ice, where before a sleeve of white tape had buttressed the joint bruised by a crash to the floor both spectacular and horrifying. The tips of the nails on the middle and ring fingers of his right hand looked as if they’d been dinner for a passing wolverwine, and the blood from them spotted both his jersey and his shorts.
