Pac-10 Position Breakdown: Linebacker – Washington State Cougars

By Sam Saig, August 11, 2009 9:35 am

Here are the brutally demoralizing facts from 2008: Washington State had one of the worst defenses in the history of Division I football. The Cougars allowed an FBS record 570 points, which translates to 43.8 points per game.

Numbers like those make it hard to believe that WSU was the last team to represent the Pac-10 in the Rose Bowl before USC’s streak. Essentially, a perfect storm of poor play, untimely injuries, and a complete loss of confidence hit the program hard last season; but at least they beat the Huskies.

Now, head coach Paul Wulff and co-defensive coordinators Chris Ball and Jody Sears must find a way to get better results out of a defense that will be replacing six starters.

If a silver lining is to be found, the linebacking corps may be the right place to look. LB Coach Travis Niekamp has a few promising players to work with, including an exciting sophomore who has a bright future on the Palouse.
