WSU football Sunday night practice

From Pullman — The big news out of practice tonight was the participation of freshman defensive lineman Emmitt Su'a-Kalio, who was arrested last week (scroll down after clicking the link for the story on Su'a-Kalio). The team is handling the matter internally, but apprently won't — or at least hasn't yet — suspended the freshman from team activities. 

Freshman cornerback Daquawn Brown was very active, deflecting two passes and intercepting another in the 50-minute practice. Nolan Washington ran with the second unit at cornerback, after practicing with the starters last week.

After practice we spoke with defensive coordinator Mike Breske, whose group gave up 585 yards but just 20 offensive points. Some highlights of that interview are after the jump.

Senior spotlight: Marcus Capers


FROM PULLMAN — As I conducted interviews this week with each of WSU's outgoing seniors, I realized the insights and memories they shared were just too good not to print. And there's no way I'm getting everything they said into my story for Saturday's newspaper. So I decided to dedicate a blog post to each of them leading up to Saturday's home finale against  Washington. We'll start with Marcus Capers.

Eric Morris, Ken Bone and some links


FROM PULLMAN — We said the week would get busier as it progressed, and we weren't lying. More WSU reading material awaits you after the jump, should you choose to soldier on.

Calm before the storm on a Tuesday


FROM PULLMAN — It's about to be a busy week, but for now, we take a minimalist approach with our Pac-12 links. Because there aren't very many of them.

Day after the blowout


FROM PULLMAN — We have some more notes, quotes and Pac-12 links to brighten your Sunday. Read on.

The game that was: WSU 72, Arizona State 50

Pregame from a grayed-out Beasley


FROM PULLMAN — There's 3,700 gray t-shirts spread over many of the seats in the lower bowl, as you can see (kind of) in the above photo. We have some quick thoughts on today's game, so read on.

Is Motum POY worthy? That, plus links


FROM PULLMAN — The Cougars have a chance to climb back above .500 today against Arizona State, as well as a shot to avenge one of their poorer performances of the season. That and more after the jump.

Miller praises Motum, plus more links


FROM PULLMAN — We have some more notes from Washington State's 76-72 loss to Arizona, plus our usual Friday roundup of Thursday's Pac-12 action. Read on. Or don't. I can't make you, after all.

A Thursday full of WSU links

Links for your chocolate hangover


FROM PULLMAN — After a nice pasta dinner and some fudge cake last night, it's time to put the Hallmark holiday behind us and get on to Wednesday's post, brought to you by Russell Stover and an accompanying bellyache.

More links than usual on a Monday


FROM PULLMAN — Traveling is fun, but there's always a certain comfort to walking through your own front door and knowing you're going to be home for a while. Such was the case Sunday. But, Monday begins another week, and we have some links for you to get it started. Read on.

Day after for Cougs, game day for others

The game that was: Oregon 78, WSU 69


FROM EUGENE — WSU tried everything it could to prevent the Ducks from shooting the lights out again. And again, nothing worked. But the Cougars played considerably better today than they have on the road this season, and can head home with a sense of progress. Read on for our game in review.

Links on another Pac-12 Saturday


FROM EUGENE — WSU can play the role of spoiler today against the Ducks, who are still in the Pac-12 title hunt. We have some links to pass along as we preview another Saturday in the Pac-12.
