Mike Leach isn’t necessarily bothered by a recent NCAA ruling that disallows teams from holding multiple full-contact practices on the same day. His teams at Washington State, nor those at Texas Tech, ever employed two-a-days to begin with.
For awhile, it looked like the offense would have its own version of Saturday's defensive showcase. But the defense had its own reasons to be pleased.
LEWISTON – It didn’t take long for redshirting running backs Gerard Wicks and Jamal Morrow to show that they were ready to move beyond the lesser competition they faced in Washington State’s 2013 underclassmen scrimmages. Facing mostly fellow first-years, away from the big crowds and bright lights of a Cougar Football Saturday, the two constantly one-upped each other with broken tackles and big runs.
PULLMAN – Sometime during the night before last year’s New Mexico Bowl, before the Cardinals made Deone Bucannon a first-round NFL draft pick, the Washington State safety planned his succession. Bucannon played an integral role in leading the Cougars to their first bowl game in a decade, as did senior cornerbacks Damante Horton and Nolan Washington. Before Bucannon could take the field against Colorado State he had to make sure that the gains those seniors fought for would be protected after they left.
Before he took the field for his last game at Washington State, Deone Bucannon sought out Daquawn Brown and conferred the responsibility of leading the defensive backs in the years ahead.
LEWISTON – The depth chart has changed more than the roster since Washington State’s 2014 spring football practices ended. The Cougars scrimmaged for 62 plays on Saturday and coaches said that the starters and backups reflected how the snaps would shake out if a game were held today, providing hints at answers to questions about who has parlayed a good fall camp into a starting spot and which freshmen may see the field.
