PULLMAN -- Momentum swung back and forth on Tuesday between the Coug offense and defense, and that's…
Cougs' Spokane Week now 3-state event
Athletic director Bill Moos will meet with fans from 12-12:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 16 at Bardenay restaurant in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho.
The following day, Moos and basketball coach Ken Bone will be on hand in Portland at a free, no-host social prior to the NBA game between the Portland Trail Blazers and the Golden State Warriors. Former Cougars great Klay Thompson stars for Golden State.
The social begins at 5:30 p.m. next door to the Rose Garden at the International Paper Room of Memorial Coliseum. No reservations are necessary, and fans do not have to attend the game.
The Cougars continue to push hard to top last year's school-record crowd of 10,000-plus, which some WSU officials believe was counted incorrectly (i.e. more fans were in attendance). Admission is free, and Pac-12 Networks television and Spokane's KXLY 920 AM radio broadcast the game live.
Beer, food and children's games will be available when the gates open at 11 a.m. The parking lot opens at 8, and the Cougars are taking reservations for RV spots that will be available as early as 4 p.m. the day before the game.
Players sign autographs from 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Some players may be a bit late after visiting Providence Sacred Heart Children's Hospital that morning.
As announced previously, former WSU football coach Mike Price headlines Spokane Week events.
Everything kicks off with a luncheon at noon Monday, April 15 at the Spokane Club in downtown Spokane. Price, Moos and football coach Mike Leach are scheduled guests.
That night, Price and 1997 Cougars like Lamont Thompson, Chris Jackson and Rob Rainville will review highlights of the 1997 Apple Cup win that sent WSU to the Rose Bowl for the first time since 1931. The event starts at 6, but a social begins at 5 at the Northern Quest Casino in suburban Airway Heights.
The Cougars play baseball at Gonzaga at 6 p.m. that Tuesday. WSU purchased 400 tickets, and Cougars fans can obtain up to four free tickets by contacting Krissy Gilbertson at (509) 358-7572 or email@example.com.
A tailgating event with barbecue and beverages is scheduled for 4-6 p.m. Tuesday at a nearby WSU-Spokane campus parking lot (WSU Spokane Green 2). That morning, from 10-11, Moos will chat with fans at the Spokane Bookie at 410 East Spokane Falls Boulevard.
Moos, who will make a number of TV and radio appearances in Spokane all week, will sit down long enough to meet with fans from 4-6 p.m. Thursday, April 18 at The Swinging Doors restaurant at 1018 West Francis in Spokane.
Price no longer golfs, but he's scheduled to attend a WSU golf tournament Friday, April 19 at Circling Raven near Worley, Idaho. Former WSU football stars Mark Rypien and Jack Thompson are those expected to be on hand for the 1 p.m. start.
A dance and social event aimed at younger adults is set for 9 o'clock that evening at the Impulsive nightclub at Northern Quest.
