HOT COUGAR ACTION: Thursday Morning Links

Before we get too far, we'll start with the obvious Jeff Tuel injury update. Washington State finished practice for the week Wednesday and as the case has been all week, Tuel was mostly a spectator.

Via Christian Caple:

Jeff Tuel was present, of course, wearing a brace on his right knee. He did some throwing during drills and seemed to move around OK. But he hasn't taken a single snap in practice this week, so it would seem that Halliday is going to get his chance.

Moving on, WSU produced a cool retrospective of the Eastern game which includes, among other things, plenty of dancing. There is also an appearance from everyone's favorite halftime/timeout hype man/Guy Fieri impersonator. We didn't even have to wait until basketball season.

Leach V. Holgorsen, Week 2: The Master Plods, The Pupil Sits - Football Study Hall
With Dana Holgorsen's West Virginia squad enjoying an early bye week, the strict focus of the week is on Mike Leach's Washington State Cougars. What was supposed to fairly easy win, one in which Leach's Cougars worked out some of the kinks displayed in last week's season opening loss to BYU, quickly became a dog fight between two surprisingly even teams. While Washington State can be happy with the ultimate outcome of the game, a 24-20 home victory over Eastern Washington, the inconsistency of the Cougars' allegedly high-powered offense remains a concern.
