PULLMAN — The students have been moving into the dorms at Washington State University this week, and the school is starting to awake from its summer slumber.

In that spirit, football coach Paul Wulff also decided to make a move. For the second consecutive day, Wulff's Cougars held practice on the Martin Stadium turf.

"We need to spend more time in Martin Stadium, getting used to the confines, and getting comfortable with our own game field," Wulff said after the Cougars' 1-hour, 40-minute workout Wednesday morning.

The setting wasn't the only difference. The tone was quieter as well. Only that wasn't by design.

"Early in practice we got them woke up and they did some good things," Wulff said. "But we kind of fizzled. Our intensity level dropped. And so a lot of things, we weren't real crisp in what we were doing on both sides of the ball.

"We had a good tough day [Tuesday] but we need to respond off of that. We didn't. ... They realized it, but we have to grow. If we learn from this, it's a good learning lesson. If we don't learn from it, obviously it wasn't."
