HOT COUGAR ACTION: Jeff Tuel Rides A Bike

With Washington State returning to the practice field Monday, everyone was looking for a Jeff Tuel injury update. That, of course, was never going to happen so instead we are left with the report from Christian Caple that Tuel spent a portion of practice riding a stationary bike.

Still, Tuel didn't practice. He spent plenty of time riding a stationary exercise bike with his right leg extended in front of him, and stood behind the offense watching during scout work.

Riding the stationary bike is standard procedure for injured players, which really makes me think WSU is missing an opportunity here. If you are going to have people riding stationary bikes for long periods of time, why not hook them up to some kind of power source so they can power the CUB or Holland Library.

Bill Moos could then use the money saved on the electric bill to fund the football operations building. Help the environment and get a shiny new stadium addition out of it. It's a win-win.


Pac-12 Power Ranking: Arizona and Oregon State make big moves -
11. Washington State (1-1): Mike Leach's Air Raid offense isn't exactly lighting up the scoreboard in Pullman, but Cougar fans shouldn't fret. Washington State has two very winnable games coming up on its schedule -- at UNLV, vs. Colorado. If the offense can get on track and the Cougars can win both games, WSU will be halfway to its first bowl bid in nearly a decade. But let's not forget about the quarterback situation developing in Pullman.

First look at WSU vs. UNLV - - Sept. 11, 2012
What it means for WSU: The Cougars are still searching for a complete, consistent victory after an ugly loss at BYU and a frustratingly close win over Eastern Washington. UNLV seems to provide an opportunity to achieve that. The Rebels have won four games in the last two seasons combined, and lost on Saturday, 17-14, to Northern Arizona of the Big Sky. If ever there was a chance for WSU to put together an impressive victory, this is it. And with uncertainty over the status of quarterback Jeff Tuel (right leg), it could also be an opportunity for Connor Halliday to get some more playing time.

PULLMAN - It wasn't a dominating performance, and the margin of victory was slim. But in the end, it went down as a Washington State win, and nothing builds the confidence of a developing program like walking off the field victorious.
