Washington State's program got the boost it needed with the hiring of Mike Leach, and Cougar faithful showed their enthusiasm at Saturday's spring scrimmage, which was held at Albi Stadium in Spokane.
A presumed spring-scrimmage record crowd of 10,713 — including Wiz correspondent Greg Laughlin — watched Leach's team run 80 plays. Eight receivers had reps with the first-team offense and the coach indicated that will be the norm come fall. One concern is protecting the quarterback. The defense had nine sacks, most coming against the first- and second-team offensive lines.
