COACH BILL DOBA said while the Cougs will be focused on the fundamentals when spring ball kicks off tomorrow, they may also implement some razzle dazzle into their practice sessions. The Wazzu head man's spring outlook picked up right where he left off at the end of last year, with lots and lots of injuries to report. And there are newcomers and redshirt freshmen who have golden opportunities.

TONY BENNETT LIKENED the Cougs' heartwrenching loss Saturday to the old ski jumper from ABC's Wide World of Sports. "The thrill of victory ... and the agony of defeat." What a perfect metaphor. When the game was done, I felt like I'd gone down a mountain. A team that was so spirited -- and so good for a Crimson Nation that hadn't been this excited since the '03 Holiday Bowl -- was suddenly done.
