GEORGE YARNO was a one-of-a-kind player and assistant coach at Washington State. When I heard he had passed away Monday after a lengthy battle with abdominal cancer, two stories immediately came to mind.

Value of Yarno's system clear in face of woes

HAD THINGS TURNED OUT differently, George Yarno might be presenting closing arguments these days. Instead, he and his 2006 Cougar linemen are putting together a remarkable season. As fine a job as the offensive line coach did in '05, when Jerome Harrison ran for the fifth- most yards ever in the Pac-10 and sacks allowed were few and far between, the work he's done this season has been better.

The key to 2004

<b>BILL DOBA</b> OUGHT TO be running a political campaign. He and his assistant coaches are so consistently <i>on message</i> they could drive Christopher Matthews or Bill O'Reilly to distraction. Better yet, the message they're so unified in delivering is short and easy to understand. It consists of just three words that, when strung together, will go far in shaping the Cougars' 2004 season.
