Wassu had some other paper that was semi-reliable, but I cant remember what it is. A reminder from someone else would be nice.

For both Oregonian schools, the Portland paper generally sucks.  Better off with the Register Guard for Quackos and GT for the Beavos.  I always preferred the P-I to the Times for Seattle sports, but I've heard it has slipped a bit since they went to online only, and it was probably a wash even before that.  I get my Coog news from their SBNation site, but here's a link to the Spocompton Spokesman-Review page for WSU fwiw as the nearest decent size paper.  The LATimes sucks condoms for advertising dough so I never find them very balanced, unfortunately the onyl real newspaper-type alternative is the LADaily News and Scott Wolfe there is a real Trojan hater--between both you might get a reasonable middle ground view.  I don't really follow the Arizonan schools, I just fire off slightly doubting posts about them here because I know their sun addled fans will shriek and wail in agony, and I'm kind of a sadist and find it funny if not fun.  For the Bay Area, the San Jose Mercury News linktified above, is easily the best of the printed newspaper sports coverage teams around (I generally think the bloggers are better on average these days).

Spring practice opened well at WSU under first-year coach Mike Leach. I like what I read, but it's only one day of spring ball.

If you check out Leach's interview, you will see the stadium renovations happening in our football stadium. It's for premium seating (i.e. suites, loge boxes, club seats) and a new press box. Everything will be completed by our first home game against Eastern Washington...next season we will add a football only facility connected to our football stadium.

GO COUGS!

Oregon State cancelled their spring game. They also just spent $160,000 to host 3 CBI games that totaled 8000 ticket "sales" including freebies.

We don't have enough healthy OLine to play two sides. As for CBI, extra games, extra practice. Whatever. Did the Ducks host any NIT games?

"We don't have enough healthy OLine to play two sides."

Whoa---bad news I'll have to keep an eye on that when I rank the PAC later this spring--very bad news for beav fans. Especially considering that the OSU OL sucked last year.

I had to consult the roster sheet to see what kind of shape the ASU OL is in--it has about 14 healthy OL.

You still could have had a spring game of sorts, offense V defense. Some programs have done that.

Oregon sold more tickets to each of their home NIT games than OSU did for all 3 of their CBI games combined.

"

The O-line during spring practice “is going to be much different than what it’s going to look in the fall,” Riley says. “We have a line, plus a couple of extras. That’s it. We’ll have to be very smart in how much team work we do.”

When August training camp rolls around, Enger and Kelly will be on hand along with JC transfer Stan Hasiak and six incoming freshmen, “some of whom we expect to play right away,” Riley says.

Based on the ESPN attendance numbers that would appear to be false.  ESPN puts the three Beaver games at a combined attendance of 6,436 while your round 1 NIT game had an attendance of 5,158.

Damn, you got me there. Still, 13k for 2 games for Oregon and 6500 for 3 at Gill. And seeing as the NIT is an NCAA tourney, I don't think teams PAY to host games like they do in the CBI.

I feel your pain bro and WSU was there under Wulff in 2008 and 2009. It was pretty shocking to our fans when our Crimson and Gray game was cancelled in 2008 due to injuries, but I'm sure that won't happen under Leach. tongue

I'm pretty sure you're talking about the Spokesman-Review out of Spokane. Christian Caple is the new WSU football/basketball beat writer for The Spokesman-Review aka SR. It was Vince Grippi for years, but the SR offered Grippi (and other SR oldies/veterans) a solid retirement package. Grippi is still working for the SR, but more as a blogger. Caple has been solid thus far, but WSU fans were spoiled by Grippi for years and I miss Grippi.

You can always visit the WSU scout forum (cougfan.com) for info.
