PULLMAN—It was helmets and shoulder pads only Tuesday but the intensity was more that of a full pad session -- with a few spirited 'discussions' occurred between the offense and defense -- before, during and after play. Meanwhile, one of the two units asserted themselves most. A couple rookies were again singled out by Bill Doba for their performance. Plus, a bunch of crimson-hued news and notes.

Mully out so light shines on Graise, Broadus

PULLMAN -- Matt Mullennix's seemingly snakebit career, on hold for a year due to a knee injury sustained earlier this week, poses big questions at one of the Cougs' least experienced spots.

Lance Broadus and Mike Graise are two of the Cougs who will now have to step up in a big way.

EVERY YEAR PROSPECTS suddenly emerge at the tail end of the recruiting process. One this year was Los Angeles area defensive end Preston Brooks out of Dorsey High, the same school that produced a January surprise for the Cougar Nation last season in the form of Courtney Williams, a close friend of Brooks. The 6-2 ½, 235-pounder who held six offers tripped to WSU this weekend, knew Washington State was the place for him.
