A day many Coug fans fought to see: WSU nose tackle Robert Barber graduates from Washington State

ONE THING all football players know: don't be late to meetings. Perhaps the one possible excuse? Time spent with mom. Cougar nose tackle Robert Barber was a little late for his d-line position meeting on Saturday, held before Washington State's bowl practice in the indoor practice facility. But he had a pretty good reason.

Barber graduated from Washington State today. His mom made it to Pullman all the way from America Samoa to see the ceremony, and many other family members were on hand.  Other Coug notables graduating today were Gabe Marks, Riley Sorenson, Parker Henry, River Cracraft and CF.C's own Skyler Cracraft.

Here are photos from a day many Coug fans fought to see.
