WSU and the new Pac-12


COUGARS

So know that the water-boarding by the boss – better known as the yearly performance evaluation – is over, we can get back to the real work. Which is to give you folks some information on the Pac-12 and other Washington State-related news. Read on.

••••••••••

• Our story for tomorrow’s SR, available now on-line, takes today’s Pac-12 news and examines how it relates to the WSU football program. Our John Blanchette will examine the over-arching themes and write about them, a column we will pass on when we can. … Wulff held his usual Thursday afternoon last-look-at-Saturday’s-opponent press conference, and talked about Stanford, John Fullington and Arthur Burns, whose move to running back this week seemed to surprise some. … With the Cardinal, Wulff feels they have a great, great quarterback – his words – in Andrew Luck. They also have something Oregon and Arizona also has, Wulff said, experienced, veteran players. … Wulff thinks Fullington is doing fine. OK, as well as could be expected would be more accurate. But he also had high expectations about Fullington from the time WSU started recruiting him. So he expects a lot from the freshman. … As for Burns, Wulff’s not sure he will even play for a while at running back, but is more of a insurance policy for the end of the year and the next, giving the Cougars more experience at that position after three guys – James Montgomery, Chantz Staden and Marcus Richmond – graduate this spring. … A couple of other notes. Forgot to pass on the news Mike Ledgerwood won’t play this week. He’s recovered from his neck injury, but the middle linebacker pulled his hamstring yesterday at practice. … Chima Nwachukwu (hamstring) and Staden (ribs) have both been ruled out for this week as well. … As for Pac-12 news, the Seattle Times has this story, ESPN.com’s Ted Miller has this piece and there is this from Jon Wilner in San Jose.

• That’s all for now. We’ll be back in the morning, but it might be a little later because it’s a travel day. Until then …
