Your Wazzu Crimson Sunrise 5/16: Pac-12 Track and Field, Ole Crimson Flying High, and Ny Redding


With apologies from the world of technology, my brief morning hiatus has now ended.  As I was unable to post the last few days, please forgive some of the more dated material.  With that, let’s hope for a great weekend wherever this might find you.


Well, if you find yourself with nothing to do in Pullman, the Pac-12 will be running and throwing all weekend at Mooberry.  Head on out and cheer for the Crimson and show the rest of the conference how things are done on the Palouse.

In case you missed it, Ole Crimson has reached higher elevations than we had previously hoped.  We will likely see more from this story during games next fall, but for now, Go Cougs!

The more we hear from Arizona, the more it seems they are ecstatic with their newest defensive weapon.  Good times for Deone, good times for the Cardinals, and we might see the second toughest safety duo in the Desert.  On that note, can we all agree that the jungle in the desert is the most asinine name for a venue in the League?  I understand the irony, but come on?

In case you missed it Ernie Kent lost a player yesterday.  Earlier in the week, however, they added Ny Redding, a guard our of Westwind Academy in Arizona.  If the school rings a bell, Que Johnson “prepped” there before bringing his scoring talents to Pullman.  Keep in mind at Westwind is playing against lesser talent,so Redding’s 30 pts and 9 assists per game are likely inflated.

What we can take away are the universal reports of his defensive skills, a 4.0 GPA, and that the worst thing we have read about his game is that he forces his passes.  That weakness will be coached out of him by Kent, so hopefully this is a ray of sunshine for WSU Hoops.


So, Mike Leach is in Lubbock.  It would have been interesting to have been a fly on the wall in BuddyHollyville.  Let’s hope he sold plenty of copies of Geronimo: Leadership Strategies of an American Warrior.
