Recruiting boon: Summer camp underway

IF PAST IS PROLOGUE, WSU will come out of its annual summer camp that begins today with a verbal commitment or three -- if not at the conclusion of the sessions, then shortly thereafter. The camp for kids and high schoolers has been a boon to Cougar recruiting over the years. Brandon Gibson wasn't expected to garner an offer a year ago, but his camp work --- like unheralded Will Derting and Pat Bennett before him -- was so explosive that he was offered and accepted, a scholarship at camp's end.

GETTING OFF ON <br> THE WRONG FOOT

PULLMAN -– Last week, in studying USC game film, Cougar coaches thought they found a chink in the national champions' armor. And not just any chink -– one with the potential, right from the get go, to super-charge the already juiced Dads Day throng at Martin Stadium. An onsides kick to start the game. Who'd have thunk it?

COUGS SHOCK WILDCATS WITH AMAZING FINISH

IT WAS OVER. The Cougs had fought and clawed their way back but the hole was just too deep. Despite moving the ball behind a suddenly rejuvenated offensive line, WSU's earlier miscues had sealed their fate. Arizona, with a first down and but 1:25 to play, was surely destined to run out the clock. But the Cougar defense again came up with the biggest of plays, wresting a victory and producing a win that'll be talked about both out on the Palouse and down in the desert for a very, very long time.

Interceptions highlight Wednesday scrimmage

PULLMAN - It may have looked erratic to those on hand Wednesday night. And, sure, those two interceptions returned for touchdowns may have gotten some reaching early for the panic button. But it was a scrimmage the Washington State football team needed to have.

Brink, Smith shine during second scrimmage

PULLMAN -- WSU head coach <b>Bill Doba</b> always sees the positive side. "We're a little banged up but at least we're building depth," Doba said. With backup quarterback <b>Chris Hurd</b> out due to an inflamed knee and <b>Jermaine Green</b> sitting out most of the day because of a tight back, two unlikely candidates -- freshman quarterback <b>Alex Brink</b> and senior running back <b>Jonathan Smith</b> -- stepped into the spotlight Saturday morning during the team's second scrimmage.
