Sunday Memo: Reichert’s name pops up in Petraeus inquiry … “Abuse” at WSU? … Seahawks take on Jets

We’ll call this the late Morning Memo:

The resignation of David Petraeus  now has a local angle: Rep. Dave Reichert, of Auburn, was contacted by whistle-blower concerned about national security, according to The New York Times.

Marquess Wilson accuses WSU coaches of abuse: Mike Leach and the coaching staff at Washington State University aren’t showing tough love, Wilson says, in a statement issued Saturday. It’s “physical, emotional and verbal abuse,” he says, explaining that he is done with the university. And yes, the Cougars lost. But a late rally made the game less than bad than usual. 

 This morning,  the controversy escalated — or at least the response. WSU President Elson Floyd issued this statement: “After consultation with WSU Athletic Director Bill Moos, I have asked our athletic department to fully review recent allegations raised concerning the football program and report their findings and conclusions as soon as possible. Simultaneously, I have asked the Pac-12 to independently do the same. Together, both reports should get to the bottom of the matter.

The N.Y. Jets bring their drama to Seattle today at 1 p.m: It’s now just about the Sanchez-Tebow situation.  Danny O’Neil notes that  ”the Jets have 12 sacks, a total that ranks fourth-fewest in the league and stands as a symbol of how this team has eroded.” We’ll see how Russell Wilson and Seahawks fare.

 It’s chilly and dry outside. The forecast.
