Rain falls throughout WSU’s practice


Washington State returned to the practice field Sunday night and was met with a rare occurrence for this season. It rained. Hard at times. How did the preparation for Saturday's game at Colorado go? Read on.


• Considering it hasn't rained this hard during a practice this year (it was really coming down at times, light drizzle at others), the grade would have to be at least a B. Good marks for enthusiasm, focus and vocal adrenaline (and yes, I just worked in a Glee reference; sorry). There was as much talk going on tonight as I've heard this season. Lower marks for execution, mainly due to the wet balls and field. … The best news of the day for Cougar fans would have to be the number of players who returned to practice. No, Jeff Tuel was not padded up, but just throwing like he did last week. And no, Adam Coerper did not have a miraculous return, though the defensive end is off crutches. But Rickey Galvin, who sat out last week after being dinged up, was back, albeit in a yellow, non-contact jersey. And center Andrew Roxas suited up, though he didn't take part in team drills. Safety Casey Locker returned, his right arm bandaged due to his infection, but didn't put on the shoulder pads everyone else was wearing. Reserve cornerback Spencer Waseem, injured in the Idaho State game, was back doing drills. Cornerback Daniel Simmons did some light running, though his knee kept him from fully participating. Linebacker Sekope Kaufusi was available as was defensive end Jordan Pu'u Robinson. Receiver Gino Simone is still not back from his calf injury. … And that was about it for the usually light evening workout.


• That's all we have tonight. We'll be back in the morning. Until then. …
