Nose tackles hardly ever get the stats or the glory. But it was impossible to miss their impact on Friday in the Apple Cup victory by Washington State. 2047 the staff of Sat, 24 Nov 2012 03:05:00 GMT 1 137 Washington State washingtonstate Scout Senior Photo Essay: 13 Cougs bidding farewell FOR 13 WASHINGTON State seniors, today's Apple Cup is more than a rivalry game. It's their final game in crimson. Most names are familiar, some not. One ranks among the great Cougar defenders of the last dozen years. And all had a hand in pouring the foundation for a better future in WSU football. 2047 the staff of Fri, 23 Nov 2012 18:03:00 GMT 0 137 Washington State washingtonstate Travis Long Scout CF.C PHOTOS: Cougs ground Eagles PULLMAN -- Reserve Logan Mayes pressure hard off the edge in providing the game's first turning point, contributing to an interception and nifty return by Cyrus Coen. A depiction of that play plus many more in this exclusive photo essay of Washington State's win over Eastern Washington in the Cougs' home opener. 2047 GREG DAVIS Sun, 09 Sep 2012 05:01:00 GMT 1 137 Washington State washingtonstate Scout WSU PRACTICE: Tuel, offense on the move PULLMAN–The Cougs may have taken a depth hit to the secondary as a freshman has not been cleared, Mike Breske said, though it might be temporary. A key d-lineman continues to progress with an eye towards reclaiming a starting job but another DL has taken his spot in the walking-boot brigade. And an o-lineman might be cleaning sand out of his shoes for about a week after a visit to the Leach Beach. 2047 JOE DOYLE Thu, 06 Sep 2012 03:34:00 GMT 0 137 Washington State washingtonstate Scout What you need to know on Cougs before kickoff NO NEED TO pull out the worry beads when the Cougs throw consecutive incompletions to squander short-yardage opportunities -- under the Air Raid that will happen periodically. But at the end of the day, more good is going to come out of that philosophy than bad. That, plus many more things you need before kickoff tonight at BYU. 2047 the staff of Thu, 30 Aug 2012 18:30:00 GMT 0 137 Washington State washingtonstate Scout PHOTO CAVALCADE: Loose on the Palouse PULLMAN -- The Cougars are looking to hit someone in the mouth and in just over a week, they'll get their chance in the season opener at BYU. A look from the CF.C lens at more 2012 fall camp action at Washington State in this 25-shot pictorial.. 2047 ROD COMMONS Wed, 22 Aug 2012 19:50:00 GMT 1 137 Washington State washingtonstate CHESTER SUA Scout SPOTLIGHT: Rundown on WSU Position Battles WITH SCHOOL NOW in session at Washington State and the season opener against BYU just 10 days away, any and all position battles not yet decided will be soon – it's time to get the starters reps and the offense and defense running like a well-oiled machine. Here's the look from our chair at the position battles on offense and defense -- every starter, at every position, plus special teams. 2047 the staff of Mon, 20 Aug 2012 17:48:00 GMT 1 137 Washington State washingtonstate Scout WSU DAY 12: Safeties, shark tales and more PULLMAN -- The audible concern surrounding the WSU defense dropped another decibel level after a pair of safeties turned in solid performances Tuesday in Martin Stadium. There were shark tales, too. Meanwhile, the quarterback picture looked less muddled, as Jeff Tuel received a majority of the snaps behind center. What did Mike Leach have to say about the ongoing position battle after practice? 2047 ADAM LEWIS Wed, 15 Aug 2012 03:49:00 GMT 0 137 Washington State washingtonstate Scout WSU FALL CAMP: What we've learned on defense PULLMAN – In the second of a three-part series, focuses in on the crimson stop corps, digging into the first 10 days of Washington State's fall camp to lend context and take a closer look at some of what we've learned. Position battles, opinion, analysis, observations and more, with the Cougar D under the microscope… 2047 JOE DOYLE Mon, 13 Aug 2012 20:35:00 GMT 1 137 Washington State washingtonstate Scout SPOTLIGHT: Coug D has chip on its shoulder PULLMAN – Texas Tech led the nation in passing six of the last eight years Mike Leach coached the Red Raiders, so it comes as no surprise that most of the focus has been on the offense as Leach prepares for his first season at the helm of Washington State. WSU defensive players say they understand why there's so much fuss about the offense, but they plan to earn a few headlines themselves. 2047 HOWIE STALWICK Sun, 12 Aug 2012 18:27:00 GMT 1 137 Washington State washingtonstate Swarming Cougar D Scout SCRIMMAGE 1: Explosive offense on display PULLMAN -- Offense dominated the afternoon Saturday as the Cougars suited up for a live scrimmage for fans to enjoy. Senior quarterback Jeff Tuel and sophomore Connor Halliday were prolific, hitting a variety of wide receivers for scores all afternoon. Temperatures exceeded 90 degrees once again, but Washington State fans were not phased as more than 1,000 spectators attended at Martin Stadium. 2047 JOE DOYLE Sun, 12 Aug 2012 03:07:00 GMT 0 137 Washington State washingtonstate Scout Anthony Laurenzi's Diary: Week 6 PULLMAN – The heat has definitely been turned on this past week. We also switched up our schedule a bit and that's got things even hotter. Over on the d-line, I think we're starting to round into really good form for our upcoming fall camp. And there's something else this summer at WSU, something that has not been in short supply. 2047 ANTHONY LAURENZI Fri, 13 Jul 2012 16:48:00 GMT 0 137 Washington State washingtonstate Scout Andrei Lintz's Diary: Week 5 PULLMAN -- Hello Cougar Fans! After a week off, our team returned to get back to work and did not lose a step from the first half of the summer. This week I will fill you guys in on what we did on our week off, how guys spent their down time, and give some shout-outs to guys who have been stepping up their intensity. 2047 ANDREI LINTZ Fri, 06 Jul 2012 22:52:00 GMT 0 137 Washington State washingtonstate Scout Andrei Lintz's Diary: Week 4 PULLMAN--Hello Cougar fans! Andrei Lintz back with another CF.C diary entry. This will be my last entry for the month of June as we have next week off. I have lots to cover and will try my best to pack this entry to its fullest. This week has been an exciting one on the Palouse as temperatures have increased, freshmen have arrived and the Idaho Vandals made a trip to Pullman for a friendly 7-on-7. 2047 ANDREI LINTZ Sat, 23 Jun 2012 00:24:00 GMT 0 137 Washington State washingtonstate Scout Anthony Laurenzi's Diary: Week 3 PULLMAN -- College quarterbacks aren't the only ones who put in a lot of film study. As a nose tackle, I can tell you that watching tape is critical to success. Because offensive linemen, all of them, have one thing in common. 2047 ANTHONY LAURENZI Fri, 15 Jun 2012 21:29:00 GMT 0 137 Washington State washingtonstate Scout PHOTO ESSAY: Crimson D PULLMAN -- The focus is on the defensive side of the ball during Washington State's spring drills in this latest photo essay.

The defensive line at Washington State this spring figures to look a whole lot different than it once appeared heading into the offseason -- so much so it arguably makes the d-line the most intriguing position to watch this spring out on the Palouse. 2047 BARRY BOLTON Tue, 20 Mar 2012 20:46:00 GMT 1 137 Washington State washingtonstate Scout COUGAR PRACTICE REPORT PULLMAN-- The status of starting CB Daniel Simmons is no longer up in the air – he's been cleared to play and returned to practice on Tuesday. Linebacker C.J. Mizell missed Tuesday with a leg injury, but Alex Hoffman-Ellis returned and made his presence known during the shoulder pads and helmets only session. And defensive tackle Steven Hoffart got in some extended turns with the 1's up front. 2047 BRAULIO PEREZ Wed, 27 Oct 2010 04:46:00 GMT 1 137 Washington State washingtonstate Scout A scrimmage to remember for No. 1 D, No. 2 QB PULLMAN — Jeff Tuel might have a restless sleep tonight. If his day is a prologue to his evening, he's going to have visions of Mike Ledgerwood dancing in his head. And Steven Hoffart. And Nolan Washington. And Kevin Kooyman. In the Cougars' first scrimmage of fall camp, the defense mostly ruled both the field and line of scrimmage. 2047 MIKE ROBINSON Sun, 15 Aug 2010 01:54:00 GMT 0 137 Washington State washingtonstate Scout FIRST PHOTOS: Fall Camp, Day 1 PULLMAN--It's been 106 days since the Cougars last suited up and took to the practice field -- and while full pads and full contact won't take place for a few days yet, the playing field on Sunday, the first day of fall camp, was awash in crimson and gray. And the action was pitched, and the CF.C lens was on hand. 2047 ROD COMMONS Mon, 09 Aug 2010 01:15:00 GMT 0 137 Washington State washingtonstate Scout Where do Cougs stand at defensive tackle? DAN SPITZ'S nine-game suspension from the NCAA is just the latest chapter in Washington State's revolving-door depth chart on the defensive line. Counting Spitz, three steak eaters have been lost since the spring season. On the flip side, two others – both late additions out of the JC ranks -- have come on board. So with the start of fall camp looming, where, exactly, do the Cougs stand at DT? 2047 J.V. HOLLAND Mon, 02 Aug 2010 18:01:00 GMT 1 137 Washington State washingtonstate Brandon Rankin Scout Kevin Kooyman's Diary: Week Two PULLMAN -- Another week is in the books for us and we have come to the midpoint of our summer program. The impressive thing about this year is that we have already matched our high water mark of last year's workload. Let me clarify.. 2047 KEVIN KOOYMAN Thu, 01 Jul 2010 16:56:00 GMT 0 137 Washington State washingtonstate Kevin Kooyman Scout Coug DT/DE beginning WSU career today THE SUMMER OFFSEASON program at WSU ramps up in earnest today, with many current roster players back in to town for summer school and voluntary workouts. The incoming recruiting class arrives soon and also get an early start. But one from that '10 class is getting an even earlier jump -- DT Steven Hoffart. He's taking his first college class at WSU today, and getting in some workout time as well. 2047 BARRY BOLTON Mon, 07 Jun 2010 19:07:00 GMT 1 137 Washington State washingtonstate Steven Hoffart Scout WSU to have most early grid arrivals ever C.J. MIZELL WAS the shock of Signing Day but attention among the crimson faithful soon turned to when he would arrive at WSU. Under Paul Wulff, the Cougs no longer bring in their incoming recruiting class just as fall camp begins. Last year the Cougs welcomed, in the latter part of June, the largest influx in program history of new arrivals. But the 2010 group's arrival will shatter that mark. 2047 BARRY BOLTON Tue, 18 May 2010 18:01:00 GMT 0 137 Washington State washingtonstate C.J. Mizell Scout COMMIT: Cougs land 2010 class DE/DT JUCO DE/DT STEVEN HOFFART didn't appear to be eligible until 2011. So when Letter of Intent Day rolled around this past February, he didn't have much to do. But then it turned out he was in fact eligible, and he had 3-to-play-3, and he was on pace to get his AA anyway this spring. Earlier this week, he became a Coug and will start classes at WSU next month. CF.C talks to the newest Cougar.. 2047 BARRY BOLTON Sat, 08 May 2010 16:14:00 GMT 0 137 Washington State washingtonstate Steven Hoffart Scout Hoffart commits to Washington State One of the top JUCO pass-rushers in the entire country last year was Butte DE Steven Hoffart (6-4, 270) and earlier this week, the talented defensive prospect decided he'd seen enough and committed to Washington State and will enroll there this summer... 2047 Scott Eklund Sat, 08 May 2010 01:56:00 GMT 1 87 JC Football jcfootball Steven Hoffart Scout
