NWACHUKWU: 'I think this one's on us'

PULLMAN -- They were ready for it, say the players. Indeed, WSU was well prepared for what was coming on the first play from Cal. They started their practice week on it. It was the first and last play they went over in the walk-through. But execute the defense against it, the Cougars did not. And Cal, with an 80-yard run for score right off the bat, set an early tone for how things would play out.

LINEUP NOTES: Hineline to step in for Ahmu

DEFENSIVE TACKLE Fevaea'i Ahmu will miss one half of Saturday's football game per a decision by the player Unity Council, according to Washington State's SID. Adam Hineline, also a senior, is expected to play in his place, and WSU also saw another defensive tackle, plus an o-lineman, return to action in Thursday's practice.

Football Notebook: Jeshua, depth test, more

PULLMAN-Seeing the No. 85 jersey on the practice field must have been a wonderful sight for any Cougar fan who watched last Saturday's offensive struggles -- sophomore wideout Jeshua Anderson ran a few routes with the first team Wednesday. The absence of the No. 92 jersey on the field, however, and a report stating that starting d-tackle Fevaea'i Ahmu has been suspended, may have dimmed the view.

ROUNDUP: Who starts at FS in place of Hicks?

ONE OF THE questions Washington State will need to answer in fall camp: Who will hold down Xavier Hicks' place for the first part of the season -- the starting free safety has been suspended the first three games by Paul Wulff. The Cougar head coach talked to CF.C previously, following spring ball, and what he said about a pair of safeties now takes on even more significance.

EVENING SESSION: Doba on D; injury news

PULLMAN--Bill Doba loves to talk football almost as much as he loves to coach it. And when Doba gets to coach and talk defense, well, life doesn't get a whole lot better for Washington State's head man. Doba, depth chart in hand, sat down prior to Sunday night's practice and provided a position-by-position analysis of the Cougar D. Also, some injury news at 'backer, observations, plus much more.
