Will a quarterback be able to start to separate himself from his competition?

For the first time in a week, there’s nothing of substance to report from the Washington State Cougars’ fall camp. That’s because, on the final day in Lewiston at Sacajawea Junior High, the Cougs held just a walk through in anticipation of their first scrimmage, which will take place under the Martin Stadium lights tonight at around 8 p.m.

All eyes in attendance will be on the quarterbacks, none of whom has done enough to distinguish himself. And that’s not necessarily a slight on Trey Tinsley, Gardner Minshew, and Anthony Gordon; all three seem to be running the offense competently and efficiently, making it too close to call for Mike Leach so far.

There’s not really much else to add at this point — it was a slow news day — so before we just move on to the links, here’s a video of Leach with the worst cannonball you’ll ever see during WSU’s annual visit to the pool in Lewiston:

Weeeaaaaaaaaaak. To the links!
