Pro scouts come to Pullman, Cougs shine

PULLMAN — Three-plus months of intensive preparation for 10 WSU seniors boiled down to just a couple of hours this week on their home turf in Pullman. Wale Dada summed up afterward what each one of WSU's Pro Day participants must have been thinking: "If they give me a hole, I have to rip it wide open."

Cougs look to impress pro scouts today

PULLMAN — Jerome Harrison is a sure thing and Troy Bienemann is probably close, but for the rest of the outgoing Cougar senior football players, today may represent their best shot at drawing a serious look from the NFL. It's Pro Day on the Palouse, as scouts from a number of teams put prospects through their paces.

Cody Boyd and 'The Big Yard'

IT WAS GREG PRATOR's block. It was Jerome Harrison's cutbacks. It was Will Derting's presence, Trandon Harvey's burst, Alex Brink's focus, Bill Doba's steady hand. Washington State's rags-to-redemption Apple Cup salvage job in Seattle was all that and more. It was a classic case of Boyd rage.

Lots of faces coming and going

PULLMAN -- Touted Tacoma safety Michael Willis practiced Sunday for the first time with the Cougars, capping one of the longest-in-coming –-- and highly anticipated --- arrivals on the Palouse since the John Deere tractor. Meanwhile, three new recruits look to be late arrivals, two more are academic casualties, three veterans have left the program and a few Cougs are nursing injuries.

SPRING BALL DAY NINE: Raining footballs in Pullman

PULLMAN—The weather on the Palouse this spring has been downright nasty and on Tuesday there was a new element falling from the sky -- pigskins. The offense set about trying to duplicate the success that was Saturday's scrimmage but Tyron Brackenridge and Husain Abdullah had a few ideas of their own.

Fall Camp: Day Five

PULLMAN—As the Cougs head into the weekend, the quarterbacks and receivers looked to continue the week's dominant theme with another strong showing in Friday's practice. The first scrimmage of Fall Camp is slated for Sunday and while the receivers have looked sharp, they also haven't experienced a defender looking to decleat them after the catch.. until now, the players hadn't put on full pads. That all changed on Friday.
