WSU FALL CAMP: Day 3 Roundup

Day 3 is in the books, with the Cougars practicing in shells (helmets and shoulder pads) for the first time this fall.

In case you missed it yesterday, our fearless leader Jeff Nusser was able to snag 15 minutes with Paul Wulff. The Cougs' head coach seemed at ease while discussing the team and has some high hopes for the young Cougars.

As a reminder, we're only three days into training camp and it's hard to glean any real information right now. The team hasn't put on full pads yet and many of the drills are basic things every football team does.

The offense has looked great, but they're in a situation that's decidedly slanted in their favor. The skelly, or 7-on-7, drill makes it very easy for the quarterbacks to make good throws and the wide receivers to make plays. Yes, Marshall Lobbestael and Jeff Tuel have looked great, but they should when practicing without pads. Try not to read much into it. We'll start to learn more when the Cougs strap it on tomorrow.

After the jump, some football links, videos, and a hire by Bill Moos that may prove to be very significant.

Focus and intensity continue to be the buzzwords. Grippi has some observations about fall camp and a note about the basketball schedule. The Seattle game and schedule are set, we're just waiting on some possible site adjustments.

"Montgomery is on track to graduate in December with a general studies degree. He dreams of playing in the NFL, but said he might apply for a medical hardship year to gain one more year of eligibility after being limited to three games, 167 rushing yards and one touchdown last season."

How to break the chain of ineptitude? Focus and discipline will help right the ship, as will new schemes he began introducing in the spring, says Ungerer, who has overseen outstanding special teams at Alabama, Cal, Oregon State and elsewhere in his 25-year coaching career. But the bottom line is that "we hope to play aggressive football."

Scout.com: Breaking: Moos lands recruiting plum
"Marlow was a finalist for the Missouri State AD job a year ago and is believed by WSU sources to be Moos’ heir-apparent at WSU in seven years should all the pieces come together."

That's it for this morning. We'll be back later with more football coverage.
