Sophomore quarterback Jeff Tuel spoke with the media after practice, and he talked about how he is looking forward to playing against someone other than his own team. I guess the point is Cougar fans, you are not alone.
More from today's practice after the jump:
Nolan Washington, who was dinged up during practice yesterday, returned today. He participated in a majority of the first half of practice.
Who else returned to Rogers Field this afternoon? The last person who will ever wear No. 14 for the Cougar football team - Tony Thompson. Actually, I suppose if Tony has a son who plays for the Cougars, he might be able to wear it. But that is probably it. The former Cougar is in Pullman and decided to come out in support of his former teammates, and to check out the new faces.
For the second-straight day, WSU went down to Martin Stadium for the last portion of practice. But today, the team was greeted with crowd noise blaring from the stadium speakers. The Cougars scrimmaged and worked on their two-minute drill with the crowd noise.
That's about all I have from today's practice. As a member of the media relations staff, sometimes my job requires me to relate to the media during practice. And while I am relating to said media, I can't always keep track of what is going on. Some days I will have more notes than others. Unfortunately, today and yesterday have been days where there are few.
So although I don't have much for you today, I will have more tomorrow. The Cougars are going to scrimmage in Martin Stadium at 7 p.m., and it is going to be as close to a real game as we can possibly make it. Game clock, play clock, officials, chain crew, quarters, etc. It will all be in effect tomorrow night, and it is your last chance to see the Cougars in a live game situation. If you can make it, see you at 7 p.m.
