WSU DEPTH CHART: New starter at MLB

THERE IS A SURPRISE ON the just-released depth chart from Washington State heading into the Arizona game on Saturday -- a new starting middle linebacker.

Time for Cougs to make a run, Morrow says

PULLMAN— Woulda, shoulda, coulda gets you nowhere -- so says Jamal Morrow. The Cougar running back also said youth is not an excuse and Washington State coming out of the bye week is preparing to make a run over the remaining five games on the regular season schedule.

Future Cougars Report: Week Eight

SOME FUTURE COUGARS were challenged this weekend, posting lesser numbers compared to what we are accustomed to seeing from them. Among them were Tyler Hilinski and Dominic Davis, but their performances did secure the most important thing -- a win. Austin Joyner, meanwhile, continued his impersonation of a one-man wrecking crew.

The Early Glimpse: Cougs vs. Wildcats

The Early Glimpse: Cougs vs. Wildcats

RIGHT NOW, you’d take a return trip to the New Mexico Bowl, right? Of course you would. Because that means the Cougars will have reached at least six wins for 2014, a goal that seems quite formidable heading into this week. Indeed, Washington State has its collective backs to the wall, placed there by a 2-5 start to the season.

WHILE A NAGGING hamstring should never be confused with the severity of a season-ending knee injury, the former may have a similar impact as the latter did last season on playing time for Miami Dolphins receiver Brandon Gibson.

WSU Practice: Who's on D?

PULLMAN— The defense received a makeover on Sunday night during a short practice in Martin Stadium. The performance did not suffer, but it certainly looked different without its starting nose tackle, one of its starting cornerbacks and both of its usual safeties. These alterations were present during the bye week, but now that the game week has begun, the change just became more real.

WSU Notes: Cougs a slight underdog to Arizona

WASHINGTON STATE opened as a four-point underdog to Arizona, (Saturday, Pac-12 Networks, 3 p.m.) And there would appear to be plenty of fireworks in the offing come Saturday in Pullman.

WSU Practice: Groundhog Day

WSU Practice: Groundhog Day

PULLMAN— For the third consecutive practice, the Cougars participated in a Thursday Night Football scrimmage, and this one forced the youthful offense to play conservatively. Asked for his take, Mike Leach after practice said the Cougar D had the upper hand. At the same time, multiple passes were dropped by young receivers who were sometimes covered well and, other times, were wide open.

Comparing WSU, Pac-12 statistics

Comparing WSU, Pac-12 statistics

WASHINGTON STATE in the scoring offense statistical category is averaging 35.0 ppg this season. That places them in the top 35 nationally – but only in a tie for sixth in the Pac-12. Still, it’s instructive to see how WSU fared in that statistical category and others a year ago, as compared to their Pac-12 brethren.

Cougar QB Connor Halliday needs a nickname

Cougar QB Connor Halliday needs a nickname

THE WHAMMER FROM LILLEHAMMER. Doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue, does it. And Connor Halliday is of Norwegian and Irish heritage, he isn’t actually from Norway. The timing isn’t great either, bestowing a nickname on a QB seven games into his senior season. But one has to try. He's gunning for the most single-season passing yards in the history of college football for cryin' out loud.

Thursday Night Football déjà vu

Thursday Night Football déjà vu

PULLMAN — Freshness was on the minds of the Cougar coaches on a crisp fall day. They have stressed that this bye week is a time to regroup, heal and hone skills, and that was readily apparent by the way the team practiced on Thursday. Several young players were featured for a second consecutive practice during Thursday Night Football, particularly along the offensive line.
