Kawulok joins current Timbers first teamers Jake Gleeson, Freddie Braun and Brent Richards on the roster.
WIth their next pick they chose UC Irvine midfielder Miguel Ibarra.
In round three they grabbed St. Marys...
Wilcox had his left hip X-rayed this week, and the prognosis is a stress fracture in his femur.
It wont require surgery, just rest, including missing games this week.
Coach Romar isnt expecting to have Wilcox for today's game against Cal or Saturdays game against Stanford.
I feel like I can play right now, Wilcox said. Im just trying...
Upstart Baylor suffered their first loss of the season this week but wont have time to drown their sorrows before picking up action on Saturday. Can the No. 3 Bears bounce back in time for a run-in with the No. 5 Missouri Tigers?
Though Baylor had been undefeated up until their Monday night loss to Kansas, the crack in their armor has now been exposed. If the Tigers can capitalize...

M’s Add Legends
Randy Johnson is headed to Cooperstown in 4 years, but this week the former five-time Cy Young winner is going into the Seattle Mariners Hall of Fame first.
During his 22-year-career, Johnson won 303 games. The Mariners had just one winning season before Wilson arrived, and enjoyed their greatest success with him.

Whitecaps Superdraft analysis (Part 2)
Last week we looked at the good fortune that saw Darren Mattocks, the most talented player available, falling into the lap of the Vancouver Whitecaps at the number two selection, after the Montreal Impact opted to choose Andrew Wenger first overall.
What got lost a little amid the glamour at the top of the draft was another fine pick by the...
White Is The Colour
While new head coach Martin Rennie is working hard to bring better talent to the current Vancouver Whitecaps squad, his job would be so much easier if he were able to access the DeLorean and head back in time at a rate of 1.21 Gigawatts to pick up a useful player or five.
Were it possible, here are five names to consider.
Bobby was a hometown...
MLB Baseball: Lou Piniella
Seattle sports fans have a lot of respect for Lou Piniella. After all he is the ONLY Mariners manager to take the team into the post season in their 35 year history.
Born: August 28, 1943
Place of birth: Tampa, Florida
Championships: 3× World Series champion (1977, 1978, 1990)
Lou was born, raised and educated in Tampa Florida, those that were the closest...
Can’t win in Cali
The Los Angeles Kings took a rough road game to the Vancouver Canucks last night, controlling play and pushing the pace in a 3-2 shootout victory at Rogers Arena.
The loss to the Kings was the second straight game given up to a visiting California team after the Anaheim Ducks took it to Vancouver in a two-goal loss over the weekend.
The Hat Trick
For the 50th time, a total lack of consistency
This week, things that drive me crazy about the Canucks and the NHL schedule. Win against St. Louis, the best team in the NHL.
A great game, lots of players on the Canucks shone. Three days later? Lose to the bottom-scraping Ducks.
I think that I may have figured out the reason for these strange and incredibly frustrating letdowns...
Can’t get it together
The Vancouver Canucks have just three games left this month and they look like they need it. The team has looked flat since the emotional win in Boston.
Sami Salo‘s injury isn’t helping matters but the forwards up front aren’t exactly lighting it up either.
Ryan Kesler has been in a prolonged scoring slump five-on-five while the Sedins haven’t grabbed...
The Trail Blazers have really cooled off lately, but they did win their last game on the road even though it was against the weak Hornets. The Hawks suffered a big blow with the loss of C Al Horford for, at least, a couple of months, but they are still playing well and have won 3 straight.

The Vancouver Canucks have finally brought back defenseman Chris Tanev to bolster their injured blueline. No word yet if he make it intot he lineup this week. All I can say is Fiiiinally.
Nussmeier, Dawgs Parting Ways
As reported earlier this week, Doug Nussmeier has agreed in principal to join the University of Alabama as their new offensive coordinator.
Nussmeier held that position for the University of Washington for three years. The SEC is the premier conference in college football, and this will be a great career step for him.
With Nussmeier gone, it is believed...
Unrestricted Free Agent Priorities
Coming off an impressive second half of the season, the Seahawks need to build on their momentum from this past season. And the best way to do that is re-signing some of their talent that played a huge part in this years second half success.
Just like last years signings of Alan Branch, Raheem Brock, and, Brandon Mebane, who were helpful to this...
New era begins
It will be strange not seeing G Kasey Keller in goal for the Seattle Sounders this upcoming season, but instead of seeing him you can hear him and see him in a suit since he will be moving from the pitch to the broadcast booth.
The club recently announced that the legendary American goalie will be the Sounders’ analyst on all of the radio and TV broadcasts for the...
Take note ladies (and gents)
Cody Hodgson, the Vancouver Canucks‘ rookie who has worked tirelessly all season to prove himself, is, in fact, a stud.
Did you know?
Here are a few reasons why the Vancouver Canucks Co-ho is studworthy:
1. He’s becoming a Canucks sharp shooter
Cody just scored, off the post and in.
With three of the past six power play goals for the Canucks...
Last minute bargains?
As we near the February trade deadline, the rumour mill has heated up, linking the Vancouver Canucks with possible moves for Cory Perry, George Parros, or Travis Moen.
The Canucks will probably be tinkerers at the deadline, adding some depth to complement their core, like last deadline when they picked up Chris Higgins and Maxim Lapierre or the deadline before...
Here we go folks. If you've had enough of the Kesler media crap maybe you'd like to drop in and chat about some hockey. Specifically the Canucks game tonight.

We're reading on the Bob Condotta UW Huskies football blog today that one source said he was definitely "in the mix'' while Greg Biggins of ESPN.com is reporting that he's hearing that "it's a done deal.''
Kiesau would apparently come to UW as WR coach with Jimmie Dougherty moving over to QB coach.
What a week for UW's Sark eh?

I was going to write a blog post on this, but then I thought NAH. That requires about 10 minutes more effort than a forum post, and that's 10 minutes more than I want to spend covering this sitch.
Vancouver Canucks forward Ryan Kesler has taken exception to an assertion made by his coach that he doesn't use his linemates well enough.
Alain Vigneault suggested following...
