Hot Cougar Action: A tale of two coaches

The WSU baseball and football teams were in action on Tuesday and the two head coaches were in opposite moods.

Mike Leach and Donnie Marbut were in decidedly different moods on Tuesday.

Leach was about as jovial as he gets following WSU's spring football practice. The Cougars donned full pads for the first time this spring and Leach was happy with the result, calling it a "great" practice.

Marbut, on the other hand, was not in nearly as good of a mood. For the second straight week, WSU faced Gonzaga on a Tuesday and once again the Cougars went down. Another frustrating loss as the Cougars continue to be up and down. This one could prove to be costly as Jeff noted on Twitter.

FROM PULLMAN — Tuesday's practice involved a bullhorn and a whole lot of up-downs. Read on.

Important note: The audio near the end of this press conference gets a little dicey due to wind so fair warning for anyone listening on headphones.

Former Cougar Josh Akognon is going to get a shot in the NBA as he's expected to sign a 10-day contract with Dallas. As his former Geology lab partner, I'm taking full credit for Akognon's call up.
