PULLMAN -- Hey there CougFans! Kenny Alfred here again and at the risk of sounding like a broken record, but these last few weeks have seriously flown by. The workouts have been great and we've made some progress each day towards where we'd like to be as a team.

PULLMAN--Hey again CougFans, this is Kenny Alfred. Another week has passed in the Pullman sun and with it, we're one week closer to showing what we've been up to when Stanford arrives Sep. 5. I know I speak for all my teammates when I say we can't wait to start things off right in the greatest place there is to play a college football game: Martin Stadium. On the o-line, we're thinking VITL.
