COUGFAN TV: Mike Leach lauds Halliday

PULLMAN -- Mike Leach after a spirited Wednesday practice session lauded the season-long work of Connor Halliday. He also said USC and some of the other Pac-12 defenses don't always get their due.

CF.C Coach's Chalkboard with Robin Pflugrad

A FOOTBALL PLAYER is often told by his coaches to never look forward. But if the Cougar program took just a quick glance at their remaining schedule, it might actually be beneficial.

BRENDON HAYES

New Orleans DE has Cougs in top three

IT WAS LAST WEEK that the Washington State staff extended an offer to Louisiana defensive end Brendon Hayes. The Cougs spot recruit that region, though, so it might seem like a long shot for WSU to ultimately land the 6-4, 250-pounder out of Bayou Country, right? Wrong, he told Cougfan.com.

The Heisman has changed, Mike Leach says

The Heisman has changed, Mike Leach says

PULLMAN — Let's be clear, Washington State head coach Mike Leach noted Tuesday when asked about Connor Halliday and the Heisman Trophy. The award doesn't go to the best player in college football. It goes to the best player on one of the handful of teams contending for the national championship. And he offered up a history lesson about a Notre Dame and Green Bay Packers legend to make his point.

WSU Practice: Coug legend visits the Palouse

PULLMAN — The big news of the day came at the end of Tuesday’s practice when coach Mike Leach said wide receiver Kristoff Williams is no longer on Washington State's roster. But there was another face on the field very familiar in Cougar Nation: former WSU coach Mike Price delivered an animated speech to the team before practice got under way, and that gave way to a spirited session.

PULLMAN -- Washington State offensive line coach Clay McGuire is nothing if not a man of action. Cougfan.com asked him to play a quick round of word association today and he didn't hesitate for a moment.

JUSSTIS WARREN ADDS WSU OFFER

Recruiting: WSU sends out three new offers

IT’S BEEN A BUSY few days for the Cougars on the recruiting hunt, with three known offers going out to prospects. They include a pair of junior-college prospects and an in-state linebacker who has seen his recruiting really take steam this fall.

CONNOR HALLIDAY

Connor Halliday all straight talk in this Q&A

PULLMAN – Connor Halliday plays football exceptionally well, but he might talk an even better game than he plays. Washington State’s senior quarterback, much admired for his willingness to take a big hit if a play can be made, is every bit as willing to take on a tough question without flinching. His candor and honesty is welcome in the increasingly homogeneous world of athlete-media relations.

Future Cougars Report: Week Nine

THE BOYS AT Upland High are making the Cougars' future look promising, as Tyler Hilinski and Kameron Powell each had strong days in a shutout win. Aaron Porter showed off his prowess on defense, and Matt Abramo made several booming kicks this weekend. However, Leach & Co. did take a hit by losing one of their top recruits to USC.

Youth not an excuse for Cougars’ struggles

Youth not an excuse for Cougars’ struggles

PULLMAN — Washington State football players frequently conveyed one message during Monday’s new conference: youth is not an issue. The larger issues behind the Cougars’ struggles, they said, are related to confidence and playing too loosely.
