First official WSU spring scrimmage Saturday

WASHINGTON STATE will hold their first official scrimmage of the spring on Saturday, with the plan calling for a 70-play session.

It’s unknown what format the Cougs will go with in the scrimmage though Mike Leach in years past has often gone with ones on ones, twos on twos, threes on threes.

Whatever the plan may be, Leach isn’t averse to changing things up on the fly – he’s been known to increase the number of planned plays in the “second half” if the execution in the first half didn’t meet expectations.

The first official team scrimmage last spring didn’t take place until Day 11, this year it will come a little earlier on Day 8.

The Cougs will hold an abbreviated practice session before getting into the scrimmage.

Both the practice and the scrimmage are open to the public. Practice begins at 10:15 a.m, the scrimmage is scheduled to start at 11 a.m.

The defense in an early spring scrimmage has sometimes gone with limited packages, with the same base and little or no blitzing, but there’s a new defensive coordinator on the Palouse in Alex Grinch and it’s unknown if the Cougs will keep it simple or open things up for the first spring scrimmage. will bring you full coverage on Saturday.

Stay tuned later this evening for our report on Day 7.
