A GRIP ON SPORTS • As Gonzaga celebrated its 84-66 shellacking of Saint Mary’s on March 10, some folks realized it was head coach Mark Few’s 599th career victory. No. 600 was sure to come nine days later in Spokane, where the Zags would have played a 16-seed in the NCAA Tournament’s first round. Then it didn’t.
Two EWU players - both starters, per sources close to the program - have tested positive for the coronavirus, days before the Eagles are slated to visit the 20th-ranked Ducks on Wednesday.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • Thanksgiving week is upon us. It begins without many things, including a Washington State game to analyze or a Seahawks’ game to anticipate. And, most importantly, thousands upon thousands of our fellow Americans whose lives were cut short by the insidious virus. But we want to stay true to the holiday’s mission and be thankful this morning, no matter how difficult it may be.
Before David Evjen understood the nuance of wheelchair basketball, he miscalculated.
J.C. Sherritt took down NDSU quarterback Brock Jensen just short of the goal line in overtime of this FCS quarterfinal thriller, Zach Johnson recovered the fumble and the Eagles advanced with a 38-31 win to advance to the semifinals.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • There is so much to unpack this Friday morning, it seems akin somehow to a three-week vacation in the wilderness. Except, of course, things like that don’t happen these days. But we have football news, basketball news and, ahem, season-saving news. What a Friday.
With the return of four starters and nearly its entire bench — the most returning lettermen in the league — EWU is eager to buckle its harness for another ascent.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • Of all the recent innovations instituted by the NFL in the past 20 years or so, Thursday night football has to be the worst, right down there with the way the league handles replay or marks the football. The Seahawks’ appearance this year occurs tonight. At home vs. the Cardinals. Strap in folks, because we don’t know what’s going to happen.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • OK. I will say it. This week is weird. I blame the NFL. Partly because the Seahawks will be wearing their garish “color-rush” uniforms but mainly because they will face Arizona on Thursday night. For the second time this season. The first one didn’t go all that well.
The NCAA announced Monday it is planning to move the entire 68-team tournament to a single geographic area and is in negotiations with Indianapolis, originally scheduled to host the Final Four in April.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • Not sure what’s worse. That the Seahawks lost yesterday at the Rams or that they played a boring brand of football while doing it. Who are we kidding? Boring is fine if there is a win involved.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • We watched quite a bit of Pac-12 football yesterday, especially after the Masters finished play for the day. And we have some thoughts.
The Big Sky Conference co-champion Eagles were issued a curious No. 5 seed - high enough to get a first-round bye and host Southeast Missouri State in the second round, low enough for some head-scratching in Cheney.
The Rams (5-3), who host the Seattle Seahawks (6-2) on Sunday, have utilized Webster at punt returner (10 returns, 56 yards), kick returner (six returns, 133 yards) and kickoff team (six tackles) this season.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • It is going to be an odd weekend ahead. No, we’re not talking about the weather, though it looks a little like Chicago in January around Spokane this morning. We’re looking at a college football schedule that is not only light on games but light on decent matchups as well. At least there is golf.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • You want normal? You crave normal? Than the irony of what’s happening today in Georgia should fill your heart with, well, not joy, but something. The best golf tournament in the world spent part of its morning on pause. All because of inclement weather. It was raining in Augusta. That’s about as normal as life gets.
The Eagles were picked first in both Big Sky preseason coaches and media polls on Wednesday by a sizable margin.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • There are any number of things we could say about Washington State football this morning, but five of them stood out to Theo Lawson. And, more than likely, you as well.
Jacob Davison's new mustache isn't the only thing that will make him more distinguishable heading into an adjusted 2020-2021 season.
