I want to be the first to request Coach Wulff also bring his QB, Matt Nichols with him to Pullman. I had the chance to see him in person this year and came away very impressed. He was Big Sky POY and probably would have got some looks as national POY with a more reliable receiving corps (imagine 4 Charles Dillons on the field at once.)
Nichols is a 6'2" Sophomore and finished the year 280 of 440 for 3,744 yards; 34 TDs and only 9 Picks. Granted, the competition would be a step up but he'd also be surrounded by better talent. Things that make you go hmmm...
Another name I would not be the least bit surprised to see pop up is Fritz Brayton. You may remember the story... Fritz is the grandson of Bobo and was a walk-on punter for the Cougs this spring. How a walk-on punter leaving the program slipped past my radar, I'll never know but I was surprised to see that he had resurfaced at EWU this year. He was killing it when I saw him warming up but Nichols actually handled the punts during the game. Not only was he (Nichols) a good QB, he can also punt. In fact, I actually saw a planned fake punt WORK! Obviously a punter is nothing to get excited about but given the embarrassing status of our special teams last year, perhaps it's something to consider.
It's going to be an interesting week as the coaching staff is finalized and these guys hit the recruiting trail. With the recruiting dead-period looming large, I have personally placed a call to Kelvin Sampson to give the new staff a few pointers on how to maneuver through that pesky NCAA rulebook.
