Cal at WSU: Pregame No. 3


There is something magical about a Saturday and college football players. Call it the Lourdes effect.

All these injured 20-year-olds suddenly are healthy enough to play.

Marshawn Lynch and his bad ankle? He looks fine. Ditto Cougar offensive lineman Charles Harris and his ankle. It wouldn't shock me if Cody Boyd jogged on to the field - that was sarcasm in case you didn't know.

Anyway, many of the walking wounded are running wounded today. We'll see how long that lasts.

Remember, if you have questions or comments, we're here during the game. Ask if you want.

We'll be back at the quarter.
