Cougs looking for positives, big and small

PULLMAN -- The defensive game plan wasn't complicated. "The number one thing was to stop the run, the second thing was to stop the run, and the third thing was to stop the run. And we didn't," said Chris Ball. Call it what you want, the 63-14 loss Saturday to Oregon. Paul Wulff called it a landslide. Ball called it a nightmare. A Coug defender said it was his worst game of organized football.

COUGAR NOTEBOOK: Injury updates

WASHINGTON STATE MAY get back their starting punter for Cal, a trouble spot for WSU last week, with Paul Wulff cautiously optimistic Tuesday on the return to duty of Reid Forrest for Saturday. Also taking a wait and see approach during the practice week, said Wulff, will determine the availability of starting left tackle Vaughn Lesuma.

Cougs' starting CBs: And then there were 3

PULLMAN -- Markus Dawes, recently back from surgery, made some picturesque leaping grabs during DB catching drills Sunday. He won't start against Oklahoma State this week, but his work served as a metaphor for the Cougs' entire corps of cornerbacks: They're rounding into shape. Co-defensive coordinator Jody Sears says three have made the biggest case for starting but many could be in line for PT.

FULL PADS: Up & down day for offense, defense

PULLMAN -- Paul Wulff the idealist wants his football team to be flawless after five days of practice. Paul Wulff the realist forces himself to take a deep breath and take a more sensible approach.

Cougs air it out in voluntary workout

PULLMAN -- If the Cougars' voluntary summer workouts are any indication, Gary Rogers and Brandon Gibson feel right at home in Wazzu's new no-huddle offense. The duo combined for three touchdowns and a bevy of completions in a spirited skelly session earlier this week out on the Palouse. Meanwhile, a pair of tight ends also had very good receiving days.
