Thomas (academics) was unable to join the Cougars this season as he did not qualify academically and is instead starting his college career off at Iowa Western Community College, Theo Lawson of The Spokane Spokesman-Review reports.
Head coach Mike Leach named Anthony Gordon the starter for the season opener against New Mexico State on Aug. 31, leaving Gubrud as the backup behind him, Theo Lawson of The Spokane Spokesman-Review reports.
Gordon is now the favorite to win the starting job at Washington State, Theo Lawson of the Spokesman-Review reports. "If we were to play today, we'd play Gordon. But we've got some time, too," coach Mike Leach said.
