WSU’s preseason practice schedule


If you are interested in attending any of Washington State University's preseason football practices in Pullman, bring sun screen, a good hat and a diet coke. That last item is for me. Just kidding. Anyhow, if you are thinking of heading to Pullman any time soon, you might want to check out the practice schedule on the link.


• Here is the practice schedule, with one quick caveat. I've been doing this for a while now, so I've come to understand these schedules are not chipped into stone. There may be changes as the practices wear on, and the players wear down. One thing Paul Wulff is darn good at is feeling the pulse of his team. If the players have been going hard, have accomplished a lot and need a break, or even a little more sleep, Wulff isn't afraid to pull the trigger and give them some time off. So, if you are making a trip to the Palouse, check here first. We try to warn of changes as soon as we hear of them – that being said, sometimes Wulff may surprise everyone at the end of a practice, telling the players they have the next day off, or at the least the next day will be lighter – so make sure you have checked in before heading out. Here's the schedule as it looks right now …

(Off days are in bold; two-a-days marked with •)
• UPDATE: Just a short update to update the status of a couple football players. It looks as if incoming freshman Brock Lutes didn't make the grade and will be attending junior college. That's what Wulff relayed in an online chat earlier today. As for the other four freshmen who were on the bubble, nothing is certain just yet. WSU still needs one freshman to either enroll in the spring (grayshirt) or not make grades, as the Cougars still have one too many players in their incoming class. Nothing is decided concerning Brandon Rankin's eligibility, other than Wulff's insistence that he'll be OK. As for fellow defensive tackle Toni Pole, Wulff said Wednesday he had passed his summer classes and was good to go.
• That's all for now. By the way, if you are in Pullman or will be nearby Friday (and you are a female), you might want to check out this link. The Cougar coaches are holding an informational seminar for women only starting at 5:30 p.m. There is more info on the link if you are interested. Until later …
