SCOTT DAVIS, the defensive playmaker surpeme from Kennewick, didn't mince words. He put heart and soul into preparations for his Pro Day workout two months ago. Perhaps an inch short and a step slow, he knew he was a longshot for even a free agent tryout. After he graduates this Saturday, Davis will trade his Cougar helmet for the professional variety.

PULLMAN -- Scouts from about a dozen NFL teams, plus the CFL's B.C. Lions, kept their stopwatches close to the vest Wednesday as they put 10 WSU seniors through workouts. But the buzz coming out of The Bubble was that two Cougs wanting badly to improve on their showings from last week's NFL Combine did just that. And one of their 323-pound teammates looked downright swift motoring down the line.

JASON HILL IS slated to be drafted as high as the first round, but for the rest of the outgoing WSU senior football players looking for a shot at pro ball, today offers a huge opportunity to make a statement. It's Pro Day on the Palouse, as scouts from several teams will put prospects through their paces. Linebacker Scott Davis says he's just looking for a chance to get on the free agent radar.

SEVEN COUGAR ASSISTANT coaches were on the recruiting trail within 24 hours of last year's Apple Cup victory. This year, though, because it's a big official visit weekend in Pullman, WSU's coaching road warriors -- no more than seven at a time per NCAA rules -- won't be fully dispersed until Monday morning. They'll be home for Thanksgiving and then back out shortly with specific positions in mind.

THE COUGS ARE TIRED and beat up, mentally and physically here in Week 12 of a bye-less season, said Bill Doba Tuesday. And so the coaches will do something they haven't done all year, take off the pads for the entire practice week. Doba said you'd probably have to tear Scott Davis' heart out to keep him off the field, all the injury news plus a potentially great linebacker waiting in the wings.

AT THE OUTSET of the Apple Cup practice week, a number of key players are listed in the WSU equivalents of 'day to day' and 'probable'. Among the notable names is that of LB Scott Davis. Despite suffering a fractured wrist against ASU, the senior captain has been cleared for limited practice, potentially boding well for his chances to take the field in the regular season finale against the UW.

AFTER BEING RANKED in the preseason Top 25 and opening the year 3-0, the Sun Devils have arguably become the conferences biggest disappointment. They've lost four of six conference games, nearly all in blowout fashion and now the best case scenario appears a lower tier bowl game for the team Dirk Koetter called, just a few months ago, the most talented he'd ever coached.

HE'S A THREE-YEAR STARTER and two-time All-Pac-10 honorable mention pick who was once dubbed by The Sporting News as the biggest defensive playmaker in the Pac-10. Yet Cougar linebacker and team captain Scott Davis is one of the most unassuming people you could possibly meet.
