In Pullman

Arrived safely in Pullman, if with a lighter pocket book after running just slightly afoul of the law while heading up Highway 26. As the ads say, don’t speed or it will cost, or something.
The team is here, as well, and just completed its “on-site inspection” of Martin Stadium. All they did was get off the bus and walk around for a few minutes wearing their travel uniform of suits and ties.
Johnny DuRocher didn’t make the trip, but Isaiah Stanback did to provide some morale support.
Michael Braunstein and Chris Hemphill made the trip, as well, just in case anyone was wondering.
I talked with Braunstein the other day and he made it clear he still wants to be part of this team, though that’s obviously probably not going to happen.
But he said he wanted to clarify his comment that appeared in another media outlet about kicking for himself. He said he was referring to a meeting he had with other players where he wanted to assure them that they didn’t have to worry about his mental outlook in light of what had happened, that “I’m kicking for everyone in this room” including himself, and that he wouldn’t want to let himself down.
One observer said the team seemed loose, looser than it often has been for road games this year. So maybe that’s a good sign for the Huskies.
One last note — it’s about 40 degrees and clear here right now. But somehow, 40 degrees here feels a lot colder than 40 degrees in a lot of other places.
