    Jon Embree Post-Practice Quotes
    On whether things looked any different on film than they did live on Saturday*- “We’re in a little bit of a difficult situation, but we’re going to go with our guys. Part of our issue on special teams is that we don’t have depth on our team, period. You don’t want to lose a (freshman cornerback) Greg Henderson, and expose him when he’s the only cornerback you have left, with Parker (Orms) and (Travis) Sandersfeld out. But we’re going to put them all out there. There are going to be*a lot of starters out there on special teams from here on out. We’ve just got to see if we can whether the storm.”
    On kickoff return and kickoff coverage breakdowns – “The penalties are just the guys … we’re asking guys to run 30 or 40 yards and get blocks. Sometimes, they are not able to do that, so that’s where you get holding and blocking in the back*- you get outrun. That’s the issue on the returns. On the coverage, it’s a similar type of thing. Part of your coverage is predicated on you being at a certain yardline when the ball is caught. If you are not there, if you are not at that yardline, then that gives the return team more time to set up*and get blocks, and gives the returner more time to read and*find seams. That’s probably the glaring issue as you look at it.”
    Washington State injury update
    The Cougars will still be without starting quarterback Jeff Tuel this weekend. The junior starter was injured in the first quarter of the opener … and has not been missed. All his replacement, senior Marshall Lobbestael, has done, is produce as many wins as Washington State had all of last season. In leading the Cougars to a 2-1 record, Lobbestael is 18th in the nation in total offense, with 306.67 yards per game, and is ranked 6th nationally in pass efficiency.
    Perhaps the Colorado defense would prefer Tuel to be healthy …
    Other Washington State players on the injured list:* defensive end Adam Coerper still*on crutches and out for Colorado; freshman running back Rickey Galvin, out last week and still held out of contact; starting senior center Andrew Roxas was also held out of drills; and*junior wide receiver Gino Simone is still out (calf injury).
