PULLMAN — The life of a football coach can be measured in an endless cycle of tape. Game tape, practice tape, opponent’s tape, they all record the minutiae — lost upon the casual observer — that hold the key to a successful snap, game or season.

“You get tired of it but the first thing after practice we come in to see how it unfolded,” WSU coach Mike Leach said. “Usually there is plenty of good. but there are a lot of things you have to address. It’s such a significant part of it that it’s pretty difficult to coach if you’re not into watching film. That’s just part of the deal.””

During Saturday’s spring game the Cougars will play in front of a crowd for the first time since last season. The coaches have tried to make the Crimson and Gray rosters as evenly talented as possible.

The event, televised on the Pac-12 Networks, will have four 15-minute quarters, just like a game. The final two periods will have a running clock to ensure there is enough time afterward for autographs.

“I would say the spring game is more about the fans and just giving back to them,” linebacker Darryl Monroe said. “It’s more just a fun game because no team across the nation ever really shows what they’ve got in the playbook or anything, so it’s all about the fans and entertaining them.”
