A quick Saturday WSU post


A short and sweet post this morning before the scrimmage. Two reasons. Not a lot to talk about, what with Washington State’s football team taking Friday off, and we’ll be back with a lot this afternoon, including our scrimmage coverage and a Sunday S-R story on incoming athletic director Bill Moos. For what we have now, read on.

• Coach Paul Wulff was informed Friday night defensive tackle Toby Turpin had been dismissed from WSU by the Student Conduct Board, we learned this morning. The 6-foot-5, 301-pound Turpin, who started six games last season and made a career-high 28 tackles despite being suspended for the final two games for an undisclosed violation of team rules, was slated to compete for a starting spot. Turpin, from Los Alamitos, Calif., was dismissed from WSU for an academic infraction, according to sources with knowledge of the situation. We’ll try to get comment from Wulff today.


• We can send you to a couple links, including a free one from Cougfan. It’s an opinion piece on the basketball transfers. … Other than that, there is some news out of Corvallis as a starting offensive lineman suffers a knee injury and has surgery. … Down in Los Angeles, the Bruins are looking to be a little more deceptibe offensively this season. … That’s about it.


• That’s all we have for this morning. We’ll be back after the scrimmage, which should get going a little after 10 this morning at Martin Stadium. If you are in Pullman, put on a warm coat – though the sun is out, the wind is blowing pretty hard – and come watch. Until then …
