Mic'd up tackling drills

The long holiday weekend is over, but you can jump start your week by watching two 300-pound offensive linemen try to run with the football/tackle.

It's the Monday following a long holiday weekend which means a few things. For one, there isn't much content to share. It turns out most people don't spend their Fourth of July weekend's churning out content about WSU Athletics.

There is a good chance, however, that you may have missed a day or two. You can get caught up on the weekend happenings by reading Andrew's post on the four Cougars trying to break their way into professional baseball and P.J.'s post on USA Today slotting WSU in at No. 61 in the preseason rankings.

Beyond that, I highly recommend watching the video at the top of this post. Mic'd up videos are almost always enjoyable, but WSU's best of tackling drills from spring football is one of the best yet. There are some big hits, a celebration or two and even a little comedy. Oh, and Joe Salave'a yelling and jumping around. The big bodies start flying around the 1:30 point of the video, culminating with 6-foot-3, 315-pound Carlos Freeman taking a turn as a ball carrier with 6-foot-4, 315-pound Riley Sorenson playing linebacker.

WSU Athletics:

If you have a Pac-12 Network subscription, there is this video about Deone Bucannon and Micaela Castain.
