AUBURN, Ala. — There’s only so much I can tell you about Washington State.
That’s why today’s edition of “7 at 7″ — admittedly running a little late — involves links from people who have been around the Cougars far more than I.
Let’s dive right in.
1. Senior corner Nolan Washington is hoping to end his career as a Cougar on a high note after an uneven first three seasons, writes Bud Withers of The Seattle Times.
2. Washington State is going all in to upgrade its football facilities, writes Christian Caple of The Spokesman-Review.
3. Withers with another story explaining how the Cougars plan to kick their defense up a notch this fall.
4. Caple again (sensing a pattern here?) with a short story on wide receiver River Cracraft (an amazing name) and how he’s expected to contribute in the passing game.
5. Head coach Mike Leach and quarterback Connor Halliday are on the spot this weekend, according to Ted Miller, ESPN.com’s Pac-12 blogger.
6. The Los Angeles Times noted many of its local players will likely see the field for the Cougars at some point this season.
7. Finally, the latest news out of Pullman, Wash., is that one of its players is transferring. Logan Mayes, a junior defensive lineman, will head to California to play for Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. Leach wouldn’t confirm or deny that this was the case, but the source seems pretty trustworthy — it was Mayes’ father who revealed the news, after all.
