PULLMAN -- Things looked decidedly dim at defensive end when starting DE Matt Mullennix was lost to a knee injury in fall camp. Proven depth was thin, and the big junior looked to be on the verge of finally being healthy, and making some serious noise once the season started. But after it was clear he wouldn't be hitting the turf this year, the Cougars looked to Lance Broadus.

PULLMAN -- Monday's second practice session saw two d-line starters on the chalk -- DE Matt Mullennix and DT Aaron Johnson were each deemed out indefinitely earlier in the day following morning practice injuries. Line coach Mike Walker commented after practice on their return timetables. Meanwhile, yet another fleet-footed WR in the form of true frosh Anthony Houston made his presence known.

PULLMAN -- In about an hour, Washington State will take the field for the first day of fall practice. They'll do so without backup defensive linemen Odell Howard and Paul Stevens. Coach Bill Doba said Stevens, a defensive end, and Howard, a defensive tackle, are suspended until further notice for a violation of team policy.

PULLMAN — Monday marked the first official day of practice for the 2004 Cougars and the look of the club, on offense, was dramatically different than the last time we saw them. The receiving corps, inexperienced and showing it at the Crimson and Gray game in April, is bolstered by the return to health of three of its most talented members. Plus there's a solid JC transfer in the mix as well as hotshot freshman from California who showed Monday why he was a five-star prospect.

And what he's saying lately is music to the ears of a Cougar Nation.The vocal coach has nothing but praise for his crimson-clad defenders,as he should, considering their game has been air tight the entire spring and so far this fall camp.

OVER THE PAST six months I've read countless stories on Cougfan.com about football prospects who have tripped to WSU and returned home talking about the "family atmosphere" in Pullman. Yesterday's signing of letters of intent put an exclamation point on that sentiment. In so many ways, "WE ARE FAMILY" should be the motto of Cougar football.
