PULLMAN – In a season where the punter has been the offense's best weapon, a pair of Cougs on Wednesday unexpectedly awoke the echoes of Gesser and Riley, Leaf and Jackson. Receiver Michael Willis and quarterback J.T. Levenseller teamed up for two head-turning plays during a short scrimmage near the day's end. Meanwhile, O-coordinator Todd Sturdy talked about where he sees the Cougs headed.

PULLMAN -- Maybe it's the water in Pierce County. Or just osmosis. Whatever the reason, Washington State senior wide receiver Brandon Gibson, a Puyallup product, looked all the world like he was channeling his position coach, Tacoma native Mike Levenseller, last week at Martin Stadium.

PULLMAN--The WSU coaching staff shook up the practice structure Tuesday. The end results were increasingly physical play, a faster paced environment and the first real scuffle of the spring with tempers running hot. Broussard talks Tardy and Ivory, and find out who DL coach Malik Roberson says is the 'most noticeable defensive line standout' two-thirds of the way through the 15 spring practices.
