Fall camp is officially over. The WSU football team exits camp relatively healthy for the first time in a while. Attention will now turn to preparing for Idaho State on Saturday. Here are a few story lines to follow as the week progresses.
- Qualification issues: Rahmel Dockery and Alex Mitchell are still awaiting clearance by the NCAA. Both are unlikely to play this season, but they aren't the only Cougars waiting for clearance. Senior defensive tackle Brandon Rankin is also currently ineligible and awaiting a ruling from the NCAA.
- Injuries: WSU escaped fall camp without major injuries, but projected starters Travis Long and Nolan Washington are currently nursing injuries and their status for Saturday is still unknown.
- Redshirts: Paul Wulff has been known to burn a redshirt or two after the season begins, but if any freshman are going to play this season, they will likely suit up against Idaho State.

Jerry Brewer | Pac-12's debut will be a season of transition | Seattle Times Newspaper
For now, it's the Pac-um-uh-12. Excuse the verbal fillers. It's going to take time to get the Pac-10 out of the brain. How many times this year will you stammer or call this enhanced conference the Pac-10 out of habit? It's like being asked to write the date during January of a new year. You're bound to slip up. You're bound to realize that, for all the talk about change, the days will often feel the same.
