Howie Stalwick checks in with a Cougar hoops notebook for Cougfan.com, and there's a bit of trepidation heading into the official start of practice next weekend.
Oh, and then there was this little nugget:
(Xavier Thames) was forced to quit practicing with the Cougars recently after the NCAA Clearinghouse raised questions about his high school transcript. Like Casto and Watson, he continues to attend practices.
Bone told Stalwick he expects all three to be ready when practice starts, but ... sheesh. Do we really have to even entertain this?
