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.

PULLMAN—The Cougar defense has surprised with a strong showing this season. Arguably the most significant improvement has come in the secondary, where cornerback Don Turner has legitimized his role as a starter. Assistant coach Ken Greene talked defensive backs, while head man Bill Doba opined on the running game, the quarterbacks and a whole lot more on Tuesday.

THE WASHINGTON STATE DEFENSE flexed their muscles and the offense, powered by a dominant o-line, eventually put some crooked numbers on the scoreboard in the Cougs' 36-10 win at Stanford Saturday. From defense to offense and beyond, presented in living Technicolor, this exclusive crimson and gray pictorial, as seen through the CF.C photo lens.

BILL DOBA said Tuesday the Cougs will field at least two new starters on offense at Stanford, with return estimates now in on injured WR Chris Jordan and LT Bobby Byrd. The news doesn't get a whole lot better up front as another offensive lineman is "very questionable" for Saturday. There's also some positive injury news, though, as Doba said WSU could get back three key defenders.

BILL DOBA noted last week Washington State was headed into the Baylor game fairly healthy. They didn't come out of it that way, with four players -- three of them starters -- suffering knee sprains. Hardest hit was the o-line, a position at which WSU lacks experience. One starting hoss and a wide receiver are out indefinitely and another o-lineman will be held out of practice for the time being.

BILL DOBA had good news for the Cougar Faithful Thursday saying Scott Davis, who strained an Achilles earlier this week, will play Saturday, and starting RG Andy Roof, out since fall camp with a broken thumb, should be back in action a week from Saturday vs. Stanford. Meanwhile, more injury updates, recruiting a big part of the Seattle game trek plus Doba lists two keys for a "W" against Baylor.

BAYLOR IS A 13 1/2 point underdog for the Seattle game but Bill Doba wasn't having any of it Tuesday, citing Baylor's high number of senior starters & backups, plus an unusual alignment scheme on the BU offensive line as reasons for concern. As for Washington State, when the Cougs kick off the practice week today, they'll welcome back some players who missed the 56-10 win over Idaho Saturday.
