Ike & Cougars get defensive; Graise dismissed

PULLMAN--It was 648 pounds of beef going at it. In the Cougs' sumo drill, DT Matt Eichelberger squared off against OT Vaughn Lesuma. The offensive tackle, recently returned from a shoulder injury, put up a good fight. But after an 8-second battle royale, Eich got lower and drove him to the ground. The D erupted into cheers. The O turned to their up-downs. Meanwhile, Mike Graise has been dismissed.
