The #RoloEra is ready to get started in Pullman, and we finally know when we can see Washington State’s new head man lead his squad onto the field.

Nick Rolovich’s first spring camp as WSU head coach will begin on Friday, March 27, the coach announced Tuesday on Twitter. Practices will wrap up with the annual Crimson and Gray spring game on Saturday, April 25, once again inside Martin Stadium.

Knowing Rolovich, that Crimson and Gray game in late April will be a spectacle that you won’t want to miss. The former Hawaii head coach took the team’s spring game far less seriously than most other programs.

Last season, Rolovich introduced a first of its kind scoring system for the game. Touchdowns were worth 2.5 million points, while a turnover netted the team a cool 1 million points. That system resulted in 11.1 million to 9.2 million point victory for Team Mauka in what the program called the “highest scoring spring game in the country, actually in the history of football.”

Oh, yeah... Rolovich also showed up to that game dressed up like a clown.

Set a alert for April 25 for the 2020 Crimson and Gray game. You probably won’t want to miss it.
