Cougar joke No. 27

Washington State University football practice was delayed nearly two hours after a player reported finding an unknown white powdery substance on the practice field.

Head coach Paul Wulf immediately suspended practice while police and federal agents were called to investigate.

After a complete analysis, FBI forensic experts determined that the white substance unknown to the players was the goal line.

Practice was resumed after special agents decided the team was unlikely to encounter the substance again.
