WSU sticks to basics in scrimmage


Washington State held its second-to-last spring scrimmage yesterday in Martin Stadium.

And what did the coaching staff learn?

There will be a lot of work to be done in the fall. As we've covered here before, the Cougars are thin right now. And downright Manute Bol-like in certain positions, including on the offensive line.

But backup quarterback Gary Rogers did throw a pair of touchdown passes and Kevin McCall, who left practice for a while Thursday with a badly dislocated finger - taking out his frustration on an orange cone en route to the trainer - ran for almost 100 yards, including a 42-yard scoring burst.

Glenn Kasses was at the scrimmage and filed this story, along with adding more information on his blog.
