UA at WSU, Third Quarter


Not only are the Cougars losing 27-17 at the end of the third quarter, their receivers are falling to wayside like a ‘63 Buick.

Jason Hill and Michael Bumpus are out with ankle sprains. Charles Dillon is limping like an 80-year-old veteran but still playing.

Let’s put it this way: Oft-injured senior wide receiver Chris Jordan, who just returned after left-knee surgery, is the healthiest wideout the Cougs have.

Cody Boyd, the 6-foot-8 tight end who also has returned recently from an injury, has had to play as a standup receiver in the four-wide out sets. Scott Selby, who has yet to catch a pass this season, has played a few plays this quarter.

Remember last week when coach Bill Doba asked for volunteers to punt and Bumpus stepped up? At the end of the quarter, he may have been asking for wide receiver volunteers.

And someone to tell him when it’s a bad time to call a fake punt. For it was an ill-timed option on fourth down at midfield out of punt formation that led directly to UA’s third touchdown – and a 10-point lead.
