Morning Cougs! Hump day and a solid day of Coug links, so let’s get to them!

When Mike Leach hired running backs coach Jim Mastro, co-innovator of the Pistol offense at Nevada under head coach Chis Ault, sirens went off across the college football landscape. Spencer Hall thought it was notable.

Enjoy a Photo Gallery of just a few of the student-athletes from the 2013 senior class. Our senior student-athletes class consists of 81 student-athletes who, combined, have an average 3.00 GPA encompassing 25 different majors. Congratulations Cougars!

Better on the O-line: The Cougars surrendered 4.75 sacks per game last year, which ranked last in the nation. So the only way to go on the line is up, and that appeared to happen this spring.

Bill Moos said he wanted to build when he accepted the Washington State athletic director job in February of 2010. He’s already done that, spearheading efforts that saw construction completed in September on WSU’s new football press box and premium seating, as well as a large hole in the ground near Martin Stadium that will eventually turn into a new football operations building.

Bill Moos has shepherded the transformation of a major university’s most bankable sport — its football program — once before. Now he’s hoping to achieve the same kind of lasting success as athletics director at Washington State University, his alma mater, as he did in his 12 years as athletics director at Oregon.
