The defensive line is set and there are now just eight spots on the WSU Time Machine Team left to decide.

Before we get to this week, let’s take a look back at last week. The vote last week was at defensive tackle. To no surprise, 2002 Rien Long led the way with 41 percent of the vote. He will be joined on the interior of the defensive line by 2017 Hercules Mata’afa. Mata’afa beat out 1983 Keith Millard by 49 votes.

That gives the Cougars a pass rushing defensive line of 1994 DeWayne Patterson and 2003 D.D. Acholonu on the edge and Long and Mata’afa on the inside. Good luck, quarterbacks.

Last week, we nominated middle linebackers and the results were so decisive, we don’t even need to take it to a poll, 1994 Mark Fields is on the team.

This week, we’ll nominate two outside linebackers to join him. Now, I realize linebackers play different positions and move around, so we are going to be very liberal with the term “outside linebacker.” Did they play linebacker at WSU and are not named Mark Fields? Then they can be nominated.

(Insert weekly reminder that we are nominating single seasons and not careers, so you need to specify which season of a player’s career you want to nominate)

Get to nominating.

Here is what the team looks like right now:
