WSU completes its 13th spring practice

The final workout before the spring game is in the books.

James Snook-USA TODAY Sports

Washington State was back on the practice field on Thursday, going through drills as two separate teams ahead of the Crimson and Gray game on Saturday in Spokane. Practice on Thursday was also the second-to-last of the spring in Pullman as WSU will go through one final practice following the spring game.

By all accounts, the spring continues to be a productive one. We'll never know the full details of the injury report, but as springs go, the Cougars seems to be in good shape on that front. Both quarterbacks have had some success, setting up a legitimate battle in fall camp. While players routinely toss around cliches about making each other better, WSU not having a starting quarterback win the job by default will be a good thing. Even the young corners have come along with Marcellus Pippins seemingly the one singled out the most as taking the biggest step forward.

WSU has ground to make up, so even a standard spring is a step in the right direction instead of one filled with setbacks. And of all the good things to come, we learned Dom Williams listens to "Ice Ice Baby" for pregame pump up music.
