PULLMAN, Wash. - With the spring football season at Washington State at its halfway mark, head coach Paul Wulff said things are starting to come together.

Are they there yet? Wulff said he wishes he had more time to work with his young players. So, no. They're not yet who they want to be. But they're getting closer.

"We're making a lot of progress and that's been a lot of fun so far," said Wulff. "we're, obviously, not where we want to be but this is probably the most growth we've had in a spring to this point. And a lot of positive things are emerging."

The team held its first scrimmage of the season on Saturday, with both sides of the ball showing some positive signs of progress. Wulff said having more depth available that compared to years past created a more intense atmosphere . Both quarterbacks - Jeff Tuel and Marshall Lobbestael - led scoring drives.

Tuel threw 7-of-13 for 84 yards, while Lobbestael went 5-of-10 for 67 yards.

On defense, Wulff said "their effort was good" and said competition among positions would make the team better as a whole.

"As a team I feel like we have made a lot of progress," Wulff said. "I know where we have been and where we are today. We are a much improved football team and we are by no means where we are going to be, but we're very optimistic. We have the right attitude going right now - an attitude that is going to allow us to take steps of growth."

The Cougars have another scrimmage set for this coming Saturday at 10 a.m. The annual Crimson and Gray scrimmage is slated for April 24.
