PULLMAN – Before the Air Raid revolution at Washington State, it would have been a sin for a receiver to miss any part of the quarterback’s play-call in the huddle. “Last year, there was a lot more wording in the plays and whatnot,” said sophomore receiver Kristoff Williams. “They would have a line call. The signals were a lot longer.”
PULLMAN – Mike Leach won’t be spending much time duplicating 16-millimeter film this spring. Because that’s no longer in style, the Washington State coach hasn’t bothered with playbooks, either.
PULLMAN – The assembly of Mike Leach’s first recruiting class at Washington State may have, in a way, offered a guideline for what to expect from the Cougars when they begin spring football practices this week. Leach and his assistants did as much as a new coaching staff could do prior to signing day on Feb. 1, noting afterward that piecing together a class in two months is not a task for the meek.
MOSCOW, Idaho – The offense has yet to coalesce. Key players from almost every position are either on crutches or hobbled. And the Idaho football team is forced to operate outside, where bone-chilling weather hasn’t departed the Palouse.

Washington State holds the first of its 15 spring practices Monday afternoon on Rogers Field with two new assistant coaches, returning players sporting new muscles, a trio of junior college transfers and, for the first time, three high school seniors.
