The Good, The Bad and The Questions: TE

IT'S BEEN A while since WSU had an impact tight end. Good ones like Jed Collins are flat-out hard to find. The Cougs, however, may be on the verge of ramping up production there thanks to a pair of high-upside redshirt sophomores, an experienced senior and a touted incoming freshman from Spokane. In CF.C's ongoing series leading to the start of fall camp, we today analyze the tight end position.

Considerably so. Plus, one tight end who was thought to have exhausted his eligibility this past season is still with the Cougars this spring.

Charting the Cougar weight, muscle gains

THE UPDATED WEIGHTS for the Cougar footballers are in. The numbers, as they were in the spring, remain striking. There are many who have gained 15-20 pounds, and more, since last year. Then there are players who put on the bulk before the spring, then trimmed and repackaged it this summer to add quickness. CF.C charts the progression from fall of '08, to the '09 spring, to today.
