UW leads 13-0 at half


Are you loose? Think you might be available to play quarterback in the second half? Peter Roberts, are you at the game? Well, the way WSU quarterbacks are falling right and left - Kevin Lopina has left twice and Marshall Lobbestael once - anyone would be appreciated. With Dan Wagner finishing the half, it's obvious Jeff Tuel wasn't cleared to play. ... The Cougar defense is playing well once again, though it was burned by the long touchdown pass, something that it avoided last week. ... But the offense has been it's usually mistake-prone self, what with three false starts - Steven Ayers was pulled after his second - a turnover and two big dropped passes. If the offense can't make a couple plays in the second half, there is no chance of a comeback. It also might depend on whether Lobbestael or Tuel can play after halftime. ... We'll be back when we have our game story done. Until then ...
