After a late start to the day, Cougars head coach Paul Wulff and senior WR Jared Karstetter were bumped from 10:20am to about 10:40. Their time was also cut short to roughly 10 minutes instead of the allotted 15 the schedule called for.
Wulff began with an opening statement regarding Karstetter calling him, "One of those guys that changes programs." The duo then went on to answer questions about the 2011 Cougars, ranging from the stability of the offensive line, to the ability to stop the run.
Wulff didn't really say anything too surprising. He made sure to point out the youth of the team, as well as the fact that they have a "chance to surprise a lot of people." Karstetter was asked about the perception that other teams didn't respect the Cougs, and he responded with the fact that they use it as motivation.
Again, pretty standard stuff here. One thing that did stand out was when our main man Vince Grippi asked Wulff to name some players he thought would break out. Wulff mentioned RB Rickey Galvin, WR Kristoff Williams, LB Sekope Kaufusi, and LB Alex Hoffman-Ellis.
Wulff mentioned the experience the offensive line now has together as a reason they'll be better. He also talked about how the WRs and RBs will help Jeff Tuel more. Wulff believes the Cougs are at a point where Tuel can have an off-day and they can still win.
If Tuel has an off-day and we still manage to win, it will be because Rahmel Dockery returned a punt 250 yards for a 70 point touchdown.
