Sometimes you just have to tip your cap

A GRIP ON SPORTS

I'm not really sure what to write about today. The weather, maybe. We are supposed to have a 60-degree day, which is nice. Or should I do something related to WSU or Eastern? Hey, I know. How about some cross country or tennis? Anything but baseball. Read on.

It’s deja Vandal all over again

Oct. 30, 2014 6 a.m.

Now where have we heard this before?

After a bye week that gave them extra time to savor their first victory of the 2014 football season, the Idaho Vandals are deep into prep mode for a run at two in a row when they host Arkansas State on Saturday at 2 p.m. in the Kibbie Dome. And the news from coach Paul Petrino this week? That both Matt Linehan and Chad Chalich (pictured above) figure to see action at quarterback.

Morning links: Halliday perseveres

Oct. 30, 2014 6 a.m.

Connor Halliday has had a great season in some respects, but it's not been the season the Washington State quarterback had hoped for. That's the thrust of today's story, which looks at the record-slaying quarterback's quest for wins.

We'd also be remiss if we didn't pass along a great story by Michael Weinreb that delves into the complex relationship between Halliday and his coach.

Less Halliday but more links, after the jump.

Preparing for USC’s defense

Oct. 29, 2014 9:24 p.m. - Updated: 9:24 p.m.

Three WSU coaches were asked about USC's defense and all three uttered the word “athletic” shortly thereafter.

The Cougars hope that the work they put in during Wednesday's practice can combat all that athleticism. How did it go? Our practice report is after the jump.
