Being a fan of WSU Football is really about coping with being kicked when you're down. It appears the venerable Ted Miller of ESPN's Pac-10 blog is making the journey to the great Northwest to check in on Fall camp at UW, Oregon and Oregon State. That's right...he is skipping the Palouse.
These are hard times, indeed. I guess there is just nothing going on way up here in the hinterlands of Eastern Washington that is worth reporting on. Except, wait... there is LOTS to report on! How about an emerging QB battle that was thought to be a forgone conclusion coming out of spring, but now has a much maligned senior in the lead, a veteran transferring and a true freshman now part of the discussion? How about two talented transfers from Cal who are looking to make a big impact on the Palouse this year? How about a rebuilding defensive line that will feature a glut of new talent with the letters DNP next to their names on the depth chart. Is Mr. Miller really not interested in seeing, in person, if any of these guys look like up and comers?
As Hawk would say, "it is what it is". Nobody cares a lick whats happening on the Palouse right now. It's sad, because there is a real story going on up here. Looks like we're going to need to make people start paying attention, beginning September 5.
All for now. GO COUGS!
