jtv: “The Hit”

13 10 2010

If you didn’t make the trip to the Washington State-Oregon game (shame on you!), that loud collision sound echoing out of Pullman last Saturday around 2:30 p.m. was Cougar freshman safety Anthony Carpenter colliding with Duck freshman runningback Kenjon Barner.
See who won….

(NOTE: Also, I included Daniel Blackledge’s touchdown catch from Jeff Tuel.  There are more highlights to come, but chew on these for now.)

jtv: Coach Wulff’s Weekly Press Conference

7 10 2010

Coming off a close loss at UCLA, Washington State head football coach Paul Wulff talked about how competitive the Pac-10 is this season at his weekly press conference on Tuesday.  With the Cougs slated to take on #3 Oregon, #9 Arizona and #16 Stanford over the next three weeks, WSU’s third-year head man argued the conference is the strongest in the nation.
Amongst the other stuff he said…

  • Oregon’s offense is dangerous
  • Ducks RB LaMichael James might be the fastest back in the country
  • S Anthony Carpenter and LB Sekope Kaufusi have switched positions
  • Freshman LB CJ Mizell will continue to see plenty of playing time
  • Sophomore QB Jeff Tuel and the offense are beginning to show plenty of promise
  • True-freshman WR Marquess Wilson is on pace to have one of the best seasons in school history, and is the deep threat the Cougs haven’t had in years

Game Stats

STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) –Kendall Hunter rushed for 257 yards and four touchdowns out of Oklahoma State’s new-look offense and the Cowboys beat Washington State 65-17 on Saturday night.

Oklahoma State (1-0) hired offensive coordinator Dana Holgorsen away from Houston during the off-season and Hunter thrived in Holgorsen’s system, scoring on runs of 3, 9, 2 and 39 yards.

Brandon Weeden threw three touchdown passes for the Cowboys, all to Justin Blackmon and Blackmon also scored on a 7-yard blocked punt return. The Cowboys have won 15 straight home openers, the longest streak in school history.

Oklahoma State’s point total was its highest since a 66-24 win over Baylor on Nov. 11, 2006.

Jeff Tuel completed 14 of 29 passes for 212 yards and a touchdown for Washington State (0-1).

Washington State went 3-22 the past two seasons and things began badly for the Cougars on Saturday as James Montgomery – making a return from a career-threatening leg injury he suffered last season – fumbled on the game’s first play and Oklahoma State’s Ugo Chinasa recovered at the Cougars’ 20.

Two plays later, Hunter scored and Washington State never recovered.

In the first quarter, Hunter rushed for 94 yards and two touchdowns as the Cowboys jumped to a 17-0 lead.

A 56-yard field goal by Nico Grasu – the sixth-longest in Washington State history – and a 48-yard touchdown pass from Tuel to Marquess Wilson pulled the Cougars within 17-10. But Oklahoma State quickly answered, with Weeden hitting Blackmon for a 42-yard touchdown.

Hunter’s 66-yard run to the 1 set up a short scoring pass from Weeden to Blackmon and Hunter scored his third touchdown on the final play of the half to make it 38-10. He added a 39-yard touchdown run early in the third quarter before leaving the game after 21 carries. Blackmon scored his final touchdown on a 24-yard catch on Oklahoma State’s next series, making it 51-10 and giving the Cowboys touchdowns on five straight possessions.

Chantz Staden rushed for 40 yards, Montgomery added 32 yards on 10 carries and Wilson had four catches for 108 yards for Washington State.
