WSU athletic director Moos moves ahead with plans

PULLMAN – DirecTV isn’t on board with the Pac-12 Networks yet. And while Washington State athletic director Bill Moos doesn’t understand why, he knows the lack of an agreement with the self-anointed leader in sports won’t prevent the school from moving forward with the next phase of its facilities upgrades. Moos said he plans to present to the Board of Regents in November the designs for a new football operations building in the west end zone of Martin Stadium. If approved during the Nov. 15-16 meeting, construction would begin shortly after the Nov. 23 conclusion of the 2012 season.

Martin now pride of Palouse

PULLMAN – Maybe Washington State athletic director Bill Moos appreciates his department’s newest creation because he’s so aware of its predecessor’s shortcomings. Addressing reporters on the third floor of the almost-completed press box and premium seating structure on Martin Stadium’s south side, his back to the field, views of the sprawling Palouse landscape to his left, Moos said what anyone who’s ever covered a game at Martin Stadium already knew.

WSU’s Leach, Moos offer opinions on Penn State scandal

Blame will be assigned. Punishment will be meted. And by the time it’s over, Jerry Sandusky might not be the only former Penn State staffer behind bars. Should, then, the NCAA bother with a case that lacks precedent and doesn’t appear to deal in any way with the issue of competitive advantage? Washington State’s athletic director isn’t so sure.

Cougs’ opener picked up by ESPN

PULLMAN – The hiring of coach Mike Leach continues to pay dividends for the Washington State football program. The Cougars’ season-opening game at Brigham Young was already teeming with storylines. Now, the entire country will be able to tune in, as WSU announced Wednesday that the game has been moved to a 7:15 p.m. Pacific start on Thursday, Aug. 30, and will be broadcast nationally by ESPN.

McWashington will be his own Cougar in football broadcast booth

Given all the years Bob Robertson worked without a sidekick in the Washington State radio booth, the recent developments in broadcasting Cougars football must have Marconi spinning in his underground studio. Next year, it seems, four people will be outfitted with microphones to share the narration of Wazzu games. Didn’t realize so much description was necessary. Did new coach Mike Leach figure out a way to deploy, say, 16 players at a time instead of the usual 11?

Cougs’ football booth evolves

Bob Robertson will remain Washington State’s radio play-by-play man for football games, but several other changes to WSU’s broadcasts were announced Monday by athletic director Bill Moos. Bud Nameck will move from the sidelines to the booth, and former WSU receiver Shawn McWashington will replace Jim Walden as the color analyst. In addition, Jessamyn McIntyre, a producer at 710 ESPN in Seattle, will take over as the crew’s sideline reporter.

Walden out as WSU football commentator

PULLMAN – Jim Walden, whose opinionated style defined his 11-year tenure as Washington State’s color commentator for football broadcasts, will not return to the booth in 2012. Walden, 74, was notified of the change via letter by WSU athletic director Bill Moos, who said an announcement from the school about a new format for football broadcasts is expected early next week.

Forecast calls for throng at WSU scrimmage

Washington State athletic director Bill Moos has predicted that 10,000 or so fans would flock to Albi at 1 p.m. today to watch the Cougars’ annual spring football game, but with temperatures forecast in the 70s, he said attendance could be higher.

Cougars would welcome CBI invitation

PULLMAN – Remember the 2010 season, Ken Bone’s first as Washington State’s head coach, when the Cougars turned down a chance to play in the College Basketball Invitational? OK. Now forget about it entirely. Because the Cougars say their perspective of that postseason tournament is dramatically different this season.

Shawn Vestal: How about sharing the NCAA wealth?

We’ve heard all the perfectly reasonable reasons for the wild salaries being paid to the new football coaches at Washington State University. You gotta pay to compete. Everybody does it. It’s the market.

Cougars come home after long gap

PULLMAN – Every dribble, every corner, every square inch of the Beasley Coliseum hardwood feels like home to Washington State senior Charlie Enquist. “I’ve been practicing on this court for five years,” the 6-foot-10 forward said. “I pretty much know every dribble that I take, how it’s going to bounce.
