Cook finds good luck charm just in time

PULLMAN—As redshirt senior Steve Cook stood on the 20-yard line just before the start of the 87th annual Apple Cup, he glanced down and saw a shiny silver object between his feet. Staring up at his 6-3, 293 pound frame was the profile of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. To find a penny lying face up is considered lucky, but can the same be said for a dime?

Cook back; Swogs sore but solid; Bienemann limited

PULLMAN – The Cougar defensive line will have a tested leader back in the starting lineup Saturday against struggling-but-dangerous Oregon. Senior tackle <b>Steve Cook</b> returned to practice this week and looks ready to roll. Tight end <b>Troy Bienemann</b>'s status, however, probably won't be clear until game time.

One BIG question

THREE LONG MONTHS of waiting are over. Football season is back. After three straight top 10 seasons, Washington State's Cougars will officially embark on a fourth when spring drills commence this afternoon. And while all eyes will be on the three-way battle at QB, the most pressing question may instead be directed at the defensive line, where replacements must be found for four long-time standouts.
