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.

The new crop of talent isn't officially unveiled until Wednesday and this lad's already gone. That fact alone is intriguing, but more pressing is what this means for WSU's depth at tight end in 2009.

Cougar TEs: Big Expectations

THE TIGHT ENDS are an integral -- and versatile -- piece of the offense Paul Wulff and offensive coordinator Todd Sturdy have brought to Pullman. Position coach Rich Rasmussen doesn't have many concerns with the top three guys on the depth chart: Devin Frischknecht, Ben Woodard and Tony Thompson. But he may also have some surprises in store for the Cougar Faithful.
