"I've got to hand it to our current players," Bill Moos said Monday on his weekly radio show. "I've never seen in my entire time as a Division I athletic director seen a more focused football team."
Moos said he's been impressed with the players' voluntary work in outdoor drills as well as their conditioning and weight training work.
The Cougars will hold the NCAA limit of 15 spring practices, including a final scrimmage April 21 at Spokane's Albi Stadium.
"We feel we could have as much as 10, 12, even 15 thousand (fans)," Moos said.
The Cougars moved their final spring scrimmage to Albi last year for the first time since 2001 and drew more than 4,000.
"Admission is free," Moos noted. "There'll be concessions, beer gardens, a chance to tailgate, lots of things for kids to do."
The Cougars are planning to bring in booster buses from Pullman, the Tri-Cities and Seattle for the scrimmage, known as the Crimson and Gray Game.
Moos said renovations at Martin Stadium remain "on budget, on schedule." Suites, other luxury seating, a club room and a new press box are being constructed. The Cougars want everything ready for the opener Sept. 8 against Eastern Washington.
Moos says player focus sky high this spring
