That wasn't the case yesterday. CF.C also turned the mic on head man Paul Wulff and CB Daniel Simmons. The defensive back, after watching the film of the USC loss, described the D's performance as "sickening." He said he and his teammates are going to fix it. And then he issued a guarantee. 2047 BRAULIO PEREZ Tue, 28 Sep 2010 15:27:00 GMT 1 137 Washington State washingtonstate Daniel Simmons Scout Cougs ramp up the tempo PULLMAN – A successful practice week is like a train gathering speed. It builds and builds, up to and through when players hit the field Saturday. There was a notable increase in energy on Wednesday with the Cougs, and the defense was leading the way. 2047 BRAULIO PEREZ Thu, 23 Sep 2010 15:16:00 GMT 1 137 Washington State washingtonstate Chima Nwachukwu Scout Hoffman-Ellis has words for Cougar fans PULLMAN -- Linebacker Alex Hoffman-Ellis after practice on Monday said that the Cougars, players and coaches alike, believe they can compete at a high level even if some fans don't. And he had some pointed remarks for those in the Cougar Nation who are questioning the coaches and players on the effort, performance and end result in the close win over MSU on Saturday. 2047 BRAULIO PEREZ Tue, 14 Sep 2010 15:38:00 GMT 0 137 Washington State washingtonstate Scout Wulff sounds off on blogs, message boarders WASHINGTON STATE COACH Paul Wulff bristled at the suggestion during Thursday's teleconference that Saturday's home opener at 4 p.m. against Montana State is a "must win," particularly where it concerns online blogs and message boards. 2047 CHRIS CHANCELLOR Thu, 09 Sep 2010 21:49:00 GMT 1 137 Washington State washingtonstate Paul Wulff Scout Defensive changes in the box? PULLMAN -- The Cougs are keeping a close eye on two defensive starters this week –- one d-tackle and one linebacker -- who are questionable with injury for Saturday's home opener against Montana State. If they can't go, who are the replacements, and how did they do in Wednesday's full contact session? 2047 BRAULIO PEREZ Thu, 09 Sep 2010 18:10:00 GMT 1 137 Washington State washingtonstate Scout Arm-tackling Cougs aim to 'wrap up' this week PULLMAN – The Cougs were back to full-contact drills Tuesday as they look to salve their Stillwater wounds with a big Saturday against Montana State. Tackling was a major emphasis, but it was an INT by a young corner that got tongues wagging. Meanwhile, Jared Karstetter showed no ill effects from his concussion at OSU but injuries at DT and LB surfaced. And taking it all in were some NFL scouts. 2047 BRAULIO PEREZ Wed, 08 Sep 2010 18:25:00 GMT 1 137 Washington State washingtonstate Chris Ball Scout WSU d-line dances to own music Wednesday PULLMAN -- Simulating road conditions, with the opener at Oklahoma State now just 10 days away, the Cougs closed out Wednesday's 95-degree session at Martin Stadium with the noise of screaming fans blaring out of the stadium's speakers. The Cougar defensive line turned the racket into a private anthem. 2047 BRAULIO PEREZ Thu, 26 Aug 2010 02:58:00 GMT 1 137 Washington State washingtonstate Scout Wolfgramm makes big return; injury at corner PULLMAN – Bernard Wolfgramm was back in action for the Cougars on Tuesday and the starting defensive tackle appeared to have lost nary a step during his hamstring rehab. All the news on the injury front wasn't good, however. 2047 BRAULIO PEREZ Wed, 25 Aug 2010 05:55:00 GMT 1 137 Washington State washingtonstate Scout DAY 5: Full contact brings big hits, volume PULLMAN -- The first day in full pads resulted in a tie at Washington State's practice Thursday. Not a tie on the scoreboard -- a tie between players and coaches for passion and energy. The defense had a big day, with Myron Beck, Kevin Kooyman, Tyree Toomer, Chima Nwachukwu and Nolan Washington all making the highlight reel. Plus, a true frosh got in some work with the No. 1 O, and much more. 2047 HOWIE STALWICK Fri, 13 Aug 2010 02:11:00 GMT 0 137 Washington State washingtonstate John Fullington Scout PHOTO CAVALCADE: Out on the Palouse PULLMAN -- The pads aren't on yet but the Cougars have been looking to hit someone the first two days, regardless. The CF.C lens takes a closer look at the action, including Cougars Myron Beck, Andrew Roxas, Bernard Wolfgramm, Alex Hoffman-Ellis, Jared Karstetter, Brandon Rankin, Zack Williams, Mike Ledgerwood, Logwone Mitz, Daniel Blackledge, Travis Long, Blair Bomber and more. 2047 ROD COMMONS Tue, 10 Aug 2010 21:12:00 GMT 0 137 Washington State washingtonstate Myron Beck Scout No summer surprises, says Wulff YOU GET THE sense in talking to Paul Wulff that he's about ready to take flight – that the Cougs' fall camp, which opens on Sunday, just can't come soon enough for the third year WSU coach. Maybe that's because he feels he and others are going to finally start seeing some of the early benefits from his rebuilding efforts. 2047 BARRY BOLTON Wed, 04 Aug 2010 16:35:00 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 Two D storylines with fall camp around corner FALL CAMP IS only about three weeks away (thank God) -- are Wazzu fans going to be treated to a noticeably faster Cougar D? Football games are so often won and lost up front, even though other positions get most of the post-game press. So how much improved might the WSU d-line be in 2010? 2047 J.V. HOLLAND Fri, 16 Jul 2010 17:18:00 GMT 1 137 Washington State washingtonstate 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 Sears saw a d-line this spring ready to hunt IT WAS ONE of the bigger concerns on defense pre-spring drills, and with two d-tackles lost to attrition over the course of the spring, you might think things would be trending towards dire shape. So why, post-spring, is co-defensive coordinator Jody Sears beaming over the Wazzu d-line headed into summer and fall camp? 2047 BARRY BOLTON Fri, 07 May 2010 22:00:00 GMT 1 137 Washington State washingtonstate Kevin Kooyman Scout With Luapo done, here's how d-line shapes up WASHINGTON STATE DT Josh Luapo has rendered himself academically ineligible for the upcoming football season, according to reliable sources close to the program. The 6-0, 311-pound fifth-year senior played in four games during his WSU career but was expected to compete for a notable role in 2010. His departure creates an opportunity for some younger guns, one they already took to this spring. 2047 the staff of Mon, 03 May 2010 19:11:00 GMT 0 137 Washington State washingtonstate Brandon Rankin Scout NOTEBOOK: Leader Kooyman focused on run stop PULLMAN -- Kevin Kooyman is 6-foot-6 and wildly athletic, but that's not why the Cougar defensive end from Maple Valley sticks out in a crowd. He's a wily old veteran on a team with precious few of them. And he's emerging as one of Washington State's true team leaders through his workmanlike approach to the game. 2047 HOWIE STALWICK Tue, 27 Apr 2010 21:32:00 GMT 0 137 Washington State washingtonstate Kevin Kooyman Scout Day 13: Evaluating DE/DT/LB position battles PULLMAN -— The Cougars took the practice field Thursday after a three-day absence and didn't lose a step on defense. Indeed, the crimson stop corps continues to impress, and has throughout spring ball. CF.C asked Paul Wulff about position battles at DE, DT and LB and recorded his thoughts. We also added quite a few of our own first-hand impressions ... 2047 BRAULIO PEREZ Fri, 23 Apr 2010 03:51:00 GMT 1 137 Washington State washingtonstate Brandon Rankin Scout SPRING DAY 7: Defense coming together PULLMAN—The Cougars returned to the football field after a couple days off and picked up right where they left off. The defense was on point and the front line continued to play strong with the addition of DT Bernard Wolfgramm to the 1's. Paul Wulff was all smiles following the session, and the former offensive lineman closed out practice in a very different way on Tuesday -- read on.. 2047 BRAULIO PEREZ Wed, 07 Apr 2010 04:51:00 GMT 0 137 Washington State washingtonstate Scout PODCAST: The CF.C Spring Hour THE COUGARS AREN'T quite halfway through spring ball -- a perfect time for our man on the sidelines to offer additional context and serve up some unique insights. In this CF.C Hour, correspondent Braulio Perez covers in depth the Cougar offense and defense, position by position, talks special teams plus offers some final thoughts on Washington State's spring drills and what it all means. 2047 the staff of Tue, 06 Apr 2010 15:06:00 GMT 0 137 Washington State washingtonstate Skylar Stormo and LeAndre Daniels Scout PRACTICE: Lopina takes the reins, INJ update PULLMAN -- The Washington State Cougars received more encouraging news on the injury front Tuesday, but the chances of starting quarterback Jeff Tuel playing in the Apple Cup appeared to take a turn for the worse. That, plus news and notes from practice, an update on Tony Thompson and more. 2047 HOWIE STALWICK Wed, 25 Nov 2009 02:34:00 GMT 1 137 Washington State washingtonstate TONY THOMPSON MAKES HIGHLIGHT CATCH Scout Wulff lauds Cougar players post practice PULLMAN–Paul Wulff had high praise for his Cougars after the second practice session of the week yesterday. "Maybe (it was) because there was no school, we didn't have 7 a.m. meetings, they had 10 a.m. meetings -- but our guys are getting better, and they're working at it and I couldn't ask for more than what they're giving right now. They're giving a great effort and working hard," said Wulff. 2047 BRAULIO PEREZ Thu, 12 Nov 2009 19:52:00 GMT 1 137 Washington State washingtonstate Lobbestael Scout Cougars get some key players back after bye INJURY ISSUES ALONG WSU's offensive line have been a major focus for weeks. That has not necessarily changed, but coach Paul Wulff said the news is somewhat better. 2047 CHRIS CHANCELLOR Tue, 20 Oct 2009 22:07:00 GMT 1 137 Washington State washingtonstate Zack Williams Scout Wulff likes Tuel's moxie; Feagin, AL move up JEFF TUEL IS just a true freshman, but he does not lack confidence. He predicted during practice this week that WSU not only would be competitive in Saturday's homecoming game against Arizona State at Martin Stadium, Tuel said he expects the Cougars to win the game. Meanwhile, two first time starters look poised to line up on the Cougars' d-line on Saturday. 2047 CHRIS CHANCELLOR Thu, 08 Oct 2009 22:42:00 GMT 1 137 Washington State washingtonstate Anthony Laurenzi Scout Cougars' youth served ... on a platter JIM WALDEN, THE straight-shooting Cougar radio analyst, didn't mince words Saturday in Eugene following No. 16 Oregon's 52-6 rout of Washington State. "It was men playing with boys," the old coach said, noting that 25 or more of the Cougars' chief contributors were true freshmen, second-year freshmen or sophomores. "Whether we like it or not, that's a junior varsity team out there." 2047 CHRIS CHANCELLOR Sun, 04 Oct 2009 04:36:00 GMT 0 137 Washington State washingtonstate Jeff Tuel Scout WULFF: Cougs have new starter on d-line ONLY ONE OF the three linebacker spots was supposed to be filled by an inexperienced player in Washington State's season opener Saturday against Stanford. That no longer is the case. There's also a new starter on the d-line, more on the plan about which youngsters will redshirt this year -- it's a larger number than what you might expect -- and more. 2047 CHRIS CHANCELLOR Thu, 03 Sep 2009 22:35:00 GMT 1 137 Washington State washingtonstate Josh Luapo Scout WULFF: QB Plan; Roxas return and more THE PLAN REMAINS, said Washington State coach Paul Wulff on Tuesday, to give two quarterbacks playing time during Saturday's home opener against Stanford. And Andrew Roxas is back in Pullman. Will he be fitted for a redshirt? 2047 CHRIS CHANCELLOR Tue, 01 Sep 2009 21:22:00 GMT 0 137 Washington State washingtonstate Kevin Lopina Scout UPDATED: Depth Chart released for Stanford THE LATEST DEPTH CHART is hot off the presses. Many of the starting battles were won over the course of fall camp and have been previously reported. But there's still plenty of intrigue -- a junior makes his long awaited debut on the d-line. Two true frosh are in the starting lineup. A senior gets the start at WIL, and more. 2047 the staff of Tue, 01 Sep 2009 16:14:00 GMT 0 137 Washington State washingtonstate Travis Long Scout Cougars crisp all around, Norrell shines PULLMAN--The Cougars had to set their alarms earlier than normal this morning for an 8 a.m. practice -- sometimes that means a bit of lethargy creeps in. But this morning on the Palouse saw crisp play in team drills, by both offense and defense alike. Kevin Norrell was a grabmaster, the No. 1 d-line was strong against the run, while their o-line counterparts provided solid pass-pro, plus more. 2047 BRAULIO PEREZ Sat, 22 Aug 2009 19:01:00 GMT 1 137 Washington State washingtonstate Kevin Norrell Scout Bland rejoins 1st unit; Karstetter acrobatic PULLMAN -- Louis Bland, the outside linebacker who made an impressive mark for the Cougs the last half of last season, is officially back in the saddle. The knee injury that shelved the sophomore-to-be at the start of fall camp looked to be a thing of the past in his all-world practice on Sunday. And Tuesday afternoon, in the Cougs' second practice of the day, he was working with the first-unit D. 2047 BRAULIO PEREZ Wed, 19 Aug 2009 02:28:00 GMT 1 137 Washington State washingtonstate Dan Spitz and Casey Hamlett Scout
