Almost done with previews


Only three more position previews to go. Today’s preview covered the quarterback spot, and when you are talking QB at WSU you’re really talking Alex Brink. The senior is the most prolific of all the starters no matter the position.

Tomorrow we look at the running backs.

Also, we had this little story on practice yesterday – the Cougs scrimmaged more than I’ve seen them this fall, with less individual time. The first game is drawing nearer.

Also drawing nearer is the day when WSU needs its starters healthy. All of them. If a guy isn’t back by Sunday, he will be a long shot to play. That being said, there should be only a couple of players who won’t be back by Sunday. Otherwise, guys like Andy Mattingly, Brandon Gibson, Alfonso Jackson, Daniel Blackledge, Dan Rowlands, they should all be back, as should highly touted JC safety Terry Mixon, who was testing his hamstring Tuesday. I don’t know if Alex Hamill’s foot will allow him to go.

• Here is the Times’ short piece from today - by the way, if you have been following the Sammie Stroughter saga at Oregon State, this story should interest you – and here is Todd Milles story on the tight ends.

• As we draw closer to the start of the season, there are a few more stories from around the nation with a Cougar mention.

• This Capital Times column about a WSU professor with deep Wisconsin ties is worth reading. It’s funny and has a great punch line.

• Next year’s opening game with Oklahoma State, to be held in Seattle in late August, is the subject of this Tulsa World story and this

• The Kansas City Star seems to be running on-line previews from the Sports Network of every major college team. Here is the WSU preview. Pretty superficial and out of date.
