Spring football on the horizon

New, comments

Now that signature season is over, it's almost time for the return of football pads.

National Signing Day is complete -- even if WSU still has one spot to fill in the class -- and the Cougars are making their way through midnight maneuvers, holding the fifth workout of the session on Monday. That can only mean one thing and that is spring football is next up on the horizon.

The Cougars are more than a month out from the start of spring football which will begin on March 26, according to Braulio Perez.  While that may seem soon, some teams are actually set to begin spring football this week, including Colorado.

The most notable time of spring football is of course the Spring Game which WSU will once again hold in Spokane. The game is set for April 25 with "kick off" scheduled for 2 p.m. PT. The game will be broadcast on Pac-12 Network, providing fans a glimpse into how the 2015 Cougars are shaping up. While there is only so much you can glean from spring football, this year will be a little more interesting than some with so many new coaches breaking in. It will be the first look at how new defensive coordinator Alex Grinch plans to operate.

Actual football things will be happening soon.

Can the Cowboys afford to wait another year to draft a QB? | FOX Sports
I'm intrigued with East Carolina's Shane Carden and Washington State's Connor Halliday. Carden is 6-2, 220 pounds. He played in an inferior conference, but then so did Romo once upon a time. Halliday's a Mike Leach quarterback, so he'd arrive with the "system" quarterback label. But the guy put up huge numbers while surrounded with mediocre talent.
