Where are Cougs' casualties now?

SO WHERE ARE THEY NOW? At least four of the eight former Cougar footballers whose academic woes contributed most severely to the scholarship penalty the NCAA recently handed down on Washington State are still pursuing their athletic careers.

On eve of fall camp attrition rears it's head

FOUR PLAYERS, INCLUDING two starters, will not be present next week when veterans report for the start of the 2007 Cougs' fall camp. Andy Roof, who has started five games and was expected to be a key player up front at right guard, has been suspended for the semester. Along with Roof, another starter -- on defense -- plus two reserves, one on offense and one on D, will also miss the '07 season.

SCRIMMAGE 1: Offense rules the day

PULLMAN—It was wall-to-wall sunshine but even the skies had a hard time on Friday matching the picture perfect performances of QBs Alex Brink and Gary Rogers in the Cougs' first spring scrimmage. There were solid hits and head-turning feats on defense but the offense ruled the day, scoring five touchdowns. Despite the shining stat line, Bill Doba is thankful the 2007 season is still a ways away.

Cougar spring preview: Position fights on O

COMPARED TO THE DEFENSE, where several big holes need to be plugged, the to-do list on offense for Washington State this spring season appears fairly modest. Finding an answer at right tackle, where Charles Harris served so ably the last two seasons, figures to be job No. 1 for offensive coordinator Mike Levenseller when workouts start late this week.

Practice Report: Cougs get defensive boost

PULLMAN -- Tuesday's practice was a wet one out on the Palouse but it was nothing but bright sunshine for defensive coordinator Robb Akey, who welcomed key defensemen back to the crimson fold. O-line coach George Yarno discusses the injury situation up front, who has stepped up of late plus shed some light on the anticipated return of another offensive line starter to the practice field.

Injury woes shuffle Cougar offensive line

BILL DOBA said Tuesday the Cougs will field at least two new starters on offense at Stanford, with return estimates now in on injured WR Chris Jordan and LT Bobby Byrd. The news doesn't get a whole lot better up front as another offensive lineman is "very questionable" for Saturday. There's also some positive injury news, though, as Doba said WSU could get back three key defenders.

Injury Report: Cougs take a knee

BILL DOBA noted last week Washington State was headed into the Baylor game fairly healthy. They didn't come out of it that way, with four players -- three of them starters -- suffering knee sprains. Hardest hit was the o-line, a position at which WSU lacks experience. One starting hoss and a wide receiver are out indefinitely and another o-lineman will be held out of practice for the time being.
