Happy Friday Cougs. Here's hoping you and yours are ready for an enjoyable weekend around the northwest, as it's supposed to be extremely nice the next few days! Yours truly has been off the grid for the last week, out of town for work down in Florida (Fort Lauderdale, to be exact). It was a lot of fun and a lot of work, but probably not nearly as glamorous as it sounds. I did get on the beach for a short time one night with some co-workers, and it's a beautiful setting on that long strip of beaches and hotels in the Ft Lauderdale area. But I'm back home now, and ready to get to the grind, as the Cougs finally kicked off fall camp yesterday! And as you can probably imagine, there's a lot of stuff to get to, so let's proceed, shall we?
So, right off the bat I think we're seeing the true effects of Mike Leach at WSU in regards to media attention. Not only does it appear that there is a lot more interest among the WSU faithful, obviously, but you...
BEST OF MAXIM
Back in May one of our ten sports media questions for this upcoming football season was "Will Peter Berg's Mike Leach documentary series become a reality?"
It was certainly something I was hoping to see come to fruition. But with no real updates from Berg's camp or Washington State, I had all but given up on the chance of the show being produced. Unfortunately...
WITH THE START of fall camp less than 24 hours away for Washington State, one thing stands out to Mike Leach. Lack of depth. The head man also touched base on a variety of other topics, including the offseason dismissals that have affected the Cougars’ depth.
PULLMAN – Mike Leach in his WSU first fall camp is expected to place major importance on the special teams units. An underwhelming third phase of the Wazzu’s game in recent years, the Cougars appear ready to turn a corner in 2012, both literally and figuratively.
New Washington State coach Mike Leach wants to take his team back to junior high as fall camp opens on Thursday.
Leach says he plans to emphasize blocking and tackling in the first week of practice as the Cougars seek to improve on a 4-8 season that ended with coach Paul Wulff being fired.
Leach says blocking and tackling are the same things that a good junior high would have emphasized...
PULLMAN - After Washington State wrapped up day three of practice, head coach Mike Leach held court and Annabel Stephan was there to capture his thoughts on the Cougs...

Just in time for the start of Mike Leach’s first fall camp, you'll enjoy the most comprehensive WSU coverage on the planet -- reports, news & notes, breaking news, exclusive CF.C photos.

PULLMAN – Mike Leach quickly established himself as a stern disciplinarian at Washington State by kicking four players, including three starters, off the team in the off-season. And Leach has definitely caught the attention of the remaining players. Plus, Travis Long and Xavier Cooper talk about what's new, John Fullington and Cooper are aiming high, Connor Halliday can move again and more.
Happy Thursday to you, Followers! Hope you are having a great week!
Today marks the penultimate episode of our world-wide hit mini-series, “Three Questions.”
(And it also marks the start of fall training camp!!!!!!!!)
In the event that you missed a previous installment in the series, you can find previous episodes below by using the WSUFB blog’s special “On Demand”...
PULLMAN -- The Cougars welcomed a new face, and a much-hyped freshman showed why he was the highest-rated recruit from WSU’s 2012 class on Friday. Meanwhile, the offense and defense both took strides while racking up big plays during a grueling three-hour practice. In the end, coach Mike Leach sounded impressed.
PULLMAN -- Washington State kicks off fall camp far more comfortable at the signal caller position than in years past. Senior Jeff Tuel comes into 2012 healthy and primed to lead Mike Leach’s Air Raid offense. The position figures to put up some gaudy numbers in 2012, thanks to a new scheme and a plethora of targets. But what else can Cougar fans expect?
