Day 7 brings rain, pain


FROM PULLMAN — After a relatively healthy first six practices, some nicks and bumps began catching up with the Cougars during Thursday's session. It also rained. Read on.

Live chat, Marks, practice and links


FROM PULLMAN — We'll get back on our live chat game this afternoon, though it will be later than usual — 2:30 p.m. — so we can chat with a WSU baseball player for a story later this week. Read on for links.

Cougs keep score during Tuesday practice


FROM PULLMAN — Tuesday's practice involved a bullhorn and a whole lot of up-downs. Read on.

Sunny Easter Sunday links


FROM PULLMAN — Funny how much different this place looks when the weather is nice. Or maybe it's just because I actually left my apartment yesterday. Either way, we have links — Easter links, even — so read on.

WSU offense, defense trade jabs in the sun


FROM PULLMAN — Mike Leach was sure to point out that the defense played well during team session, and it did. But WSU's offense — the receivers, particularly — had its moments in 1-on-1 drills, too. Read on.

Day 3 in the books for WSU


FROM PULLMAN — Would be hard to ask for better practice conditions in Pullman in March than what we saw today. Well, I guess it wouldn't be that hard to ask. It would just be hard to actually see that request granted. Read on.

WSU spring football roster

I'm admittedly jumping back and forth between a few things this week, so I haven't had a chance to fully peruse WSU's spring roster. But at first glance, there doesn't appear to be any major personnel defections or additions, with the obvious exception of a number of new walk-ons. But that's standard procedure.

Have a look.

The offense: WSU spring position previews


FROM SALT LAKE CITY — There's some sort of basketball tournament starting this week, but Washington State also begins its spring football practices on Thursday. Just to whet your appetite — and to have an excuse to use the word “whet” — here's a look at where the Cougars stand at each offensive position. We'll look at the defense tomorrow.

A couple of caveats: the players listed are based on what the roster reflects at present, but the roster hasn't been updated since the end of the season. We know about the defections of players like Cody Clements (transfer) and David Gilbertson (graduated with a year of eligiblity left), but it's entirely possible that a handful of other scholarship players or a walk-on or two (or three, or four) have left the program. We'll know for sure when the spring roster is released tomorrow (presumably, anyway. It will at least be out there by Thursday).

Anyway, here's what the offense looks like, near as we can tell at this point.

Live chat today, lots of news from WSU


FROM PULLMAN — As we've said in this space recently, this time of year is typically accompanied by a dearth of college football and basketball news. Well, Tuesday was different. Read on for our daily rundown.

Day 15: Cougars put a bow on the spring


FROM PULLMAN — The next time we see Washington State on a football practice field with coaches and pads, it'll be August. Yes, the Cougars practiced for the 15th and final time on Tuesday, putting the finishing touches on the first spring of the Mike Leach era. As usual, we have some notes, though they come with a caveat.

One for the road


FROM PULLMAN — After beginning spring practices just over a month ago, WSU wraps up its 15-practice schedule with a final workout this afternoon. We'll be there with our usual coverage. To get your day started, have at some links.

One day til Spokane


FROM PULLMAN — We're officially one day away from the spring game, but we've got a few loose ends to tie up here in Pullman before driving to Coeur d'Alene later today. Visiting a friend there before Saturday's big scrimmage. Read on for some links, because there are a few.

Day 13 in the books as spring game awaits


FROM PULLMAN — WSU needed to go without pads either today or on Tuesday — you're only allowed 12 practices in pads and they've already had 10, with the spring game coming up Saturday — so they were in helmets and shorts this afternoon. It was a lighter workout than usual.

One more practice before the real(ish) thing


FROM PULLMAN — WSU practices this afternoon for the 13th time this spring — and the final time before perhaps the most anticipated spring game in the history of the program. (The Cougars do have another practice scheduled for the following Tuesday, though I'm guessing that won't receive as much attention.)

Live Chat today, plus news and links


FROM PULLMAN — We bemoaned the lack of linkable content the past couple days, but fret not. There is plenty more to read today. And if you just can't get enough, you can join us on our weekly live chat later today at noon, right here on the blog. Read on for more words.

Day 12 in the books for WSU


FROM PULLMAN — Just one more practice remains now before WSU's spring game, as the Cougars went through their 12th workout of the spring on Tuesday. Not much news to pass along, though we do have some interesting notes after the jump.

Lintz might be grizzly, but D was bullish


FROM PULLMAN — Mike Leach liked how the offense responded at times, but Saturday's scrimmage seemed to go to the defense for most of the day. We have notes and the like — plus another quote from Leach that you're sure to get a kick out of — so read on.

Heading toward the stretch run


FROM PULLMAN — If there's such a thing as a stretch run in spring practice, the Cougars are getting there. Just five more practices before they pack it up and call it a spring. We have news and notes from the latest session — as well as other places — so read on.
