Post-practice post from WSU

COUGARS

Coach Paul Wulff's radio show is about to begin and we don't want to miss all the excitement, so we'll keep tonight's post-practice post short. Read on.


••••••••••

• The biggest news Tuesday afternoon? Travis Long came out to practice suited up. He was joined by Jordan Pu'u Robinson. And Aaron Dunn. And Nolan Washington. And Brandon Golden. All had been suffering from a variety of injuries, from Long's knee to Golden's ankle. Now they all participated in practice at different levels – Long did individual drills but no team work; Robinson did drills for a while, then iced his knee; Dunn did a bit more; Washington did just about everything; and Golden, his left ankle in a brace, ran with the scout defense at corner and with the regular defense a bit – but they all had made some improvement. … A couple of the freshmen with paperwork problems, Tana Pritchard and Darryl Paulo, got their work done and were back out. … I wrote yesterday that I didn't believe Alex Mitchell would qualify right now and it looks more like that is the case for the offensive lineman. The freshman wasn't at practice for the second consecutive day. It looks like he's now working to get his scores up so he can return to WSU in the spring. As for Rahmel Dockery, he was out watching practice again Tuesday as he awaits the NCAA. There is still no official word on either. … Andrew Furney was 6 for 6 in field goal action early in practice Tuesday while backup Alex Gauper was 3 for 3. And at the end, when the Cougars finished with a two-minute drill, Furney drilled back-to-back field goals. … The one offense matched up with the one defense in that drill (and twos vs. twos), with the defense getting the better of it. Strong pressure forced two Jeff Tuel incompletions and, facing a third-and-10, Tuel dropped back again. Sekope Kaufusi blitzed and forced Tuel to his right. The quarterback tried to hit Marquess Wilson on the run, but the throw was a bit behind Wilson, caromed off him and into the hands of Daniel Simmons, who was covering the receiver like a Snuggy. Simmons rolled over but kept control of the interception.
