Time to empty out the notebook. Anything you may have missed from an emphatic Cougar win Saturday afternoon at Martin Stadium. Starting with the most essential, Oregon State quarterback Jake Luton was discharged from Pullman Regional Hospital Saturday evening and was able to return home. Luton was stretchered off the field after taking a violent hit from Cougars safety Jalen Thompson in the fourth quarter. Luton’s dad reported on Facebook that his son had suffered what probably is a “thoracic spine fracture,” though the Beavers have yet to provide an official injury report. Luton also posted on Twitter Saturday night, “Thank you to everyone for all the kind messages and support. I’ll be back! #GoBeavs”
PULLMAN – If there was ever an offense in the history of civilization that didn’t go through a lull at some point or another, Mike Leach would like to be the first to know about it. He can say with absolute certainty that there isn’t, but before just handing this win over to the Washington State coach, maybe consider a few of history’s greatest offenses.
Together, Tavares Martin Jr. and Isaiah Johnson-Mack caught 19 passes, accumulated 273 receiving yards and scored five touchdowns on Saturday night, giving life to Washington State’s vertical passing game in a 52-23 win over Oregon State.
The first pass covered a cool 14 yards, but then there was a bubble screen that went nowhere, a sack – by a team that had sacked nobody all season – and finally a medium-deep ball swatted away at the last minute. This was Washington State’s start on Saturday afternoon, worse even than the Cougars’ start last Saturday. Which tells you a lot about how much gravitas to attach to “starts.”

Last week’s triple-overtime win over Boise State – Washington State came back from 21 in the fourth quarter to stun the Broncos, if you happened to be off the grid – churned the heart more than the heart is meant to be churned. The season is only two weeks old, but already the Cougars could probably use one of those low-key afternoon games against a lesser opponent to iron out the kinks and reset before things ramp up again.
Tyler Hilinski put on his Superman cape to lead Washington State past Boise State on national television last Saturday. But it certainly wasn’t the first time one of the Hilinski brothers did something extraordinary on a football field.
