My guess is that everyone is in Pullman to catch tomorrow's scrimmage. If you aren't here, I would suggest getting here to see this team for yourself. The Cougars will get going tomorrow at 2 p.m. in Martin Stadium.
So how was practice?
The team was in helmets and shoulder pads, and it seemed as if there was a heavy dose of special teams. Quarterback Jeff Tuel looked sharp in skelly, but he did have to throw one away because of the coverage.
During scrimmage, the first-team defense got the better of the first offense in round one, thanks in large part to linebacker Myron Beck's coverage ability. The birthday boy made a great play on third down, halting the offense's drive.
It seems as if every day I have something to say about freshman running back Rickey Galvin, and he shined again when the twos lined up. Galvin broke off a 20-yard run and was stopped just short of the goal line. The coaches moved the ball back to the five and declared it third down for situational purposes, and quarterback Marshall Lobbestael hit running back Marcus Richmond for the touchdown.
The second defense got its stop in the next session when the teams went to the other end of the field to work on a two-minute drill. The first units then came out, and on second down Tuel hit wide receiver Jeffrey Solomon for a 38-yard touchdown. Tuel said after practice that he thought he overthrew Solomon, but the senior wideout came down with it for the score.
So what did Coach Wulff think?
I also have a video with Skylar Stormo. Thanks to Richard for the questions, and my apologies to David for not being able to grab Brandon Rankin. I assure you that he is happy he is your favorite player, and I am happy that you're going to get another couple years out of your Michael Bumpus jersey.
On another note, I would be more than happy to continue doing these if you guys like this. Let me know...
Don't forget to be at Martin Stadium tomorrow at 2 p.m. Until then...
