Hot Cougar Action: Day 1 of spring football in the books

William Mancebo

Washington State went through its first day of spring football and there are videos to prove it.

While most people were focused on the first day of the NCAA Tournament, the WSU football team was busy working through its first practice of spring football.

WSU posted three post practice interviews which include some clips from practice. There are a few clips of the team practicing in what appears to be a mini blizzard. Nothing too earth shattering from Mike Leach, Deone Bucannon or Connor Halliday although Halliday did say it felt good to not have any pain in his internal organs. So there is that.
