Posted November 04, 2012 on washingtonstate.scout.com
ON THIS SATURDAY, it seemed that the real show started after the game ended. Mike Leach’s postgame remarks were explosive, accusatory and, in their own right, just as big of a disaster as his team’s 49-6 loss at Utah. The Utes outgained the Cougars 453 to 255 in total yards as the hapless crew from the Palouse gave up six sacks and tallied negative-4 rushing yards.

Kevin Kolb Returning “Sooner Rather Than Later”

Cardinals HC Ken Whisenhunt told reporters on Monday that he expects to have QB Kevin Kolb back “sooner rather than later,” but wouldn’t offer a specific timetable for his return, per Darren Urban. Kolb has been out for a few weeks now with a number of injuries. Since John Skelton has taken over, Arizona has dropped four straight games with Skelton producing 2 passing touchdowns...

Cardinals move Potter to LT, consider other moves

The Cardinals are going to give rookie Nate Potter a shot at left tackle, and coach Ken Whisenhunt says more changes might be coming as Arizona looks to end a five-game losing streak. A seventh-round draft pick out of Boise State, Potter entered Sunday's game at Green Bay in the second quarter, replacing D'Anthony Batiste. Whisenhunt says he was ''very impressed...

Larry Fitzgerald Spent His Down Time Feeding a Panther This Past Week

The Arizona Cardinals have hit a rough patch of the season and are now looking like a team that may struggle to remain .500 after a great start to the year. Unfortunately, Larry Fitzgerald is one of those guys who could have done so much more if he had a quarterback. Imagine if Rodgers was throwing to Fitz. It’d be insane – anyway, Fitz kept busy during his off week and fed this...

Michael Floyd Headed For Bigger Role in Arizona

Arizona Cardinals rookie wideout Michael Floyd will see his playing time increase, according to coach Ken Whisenhunt.Fantasy Spin:At this point we can't see Floyd getting enough opportunities to have any fantasy value this season. He's still sitting behind Larry Fitzgerald, Andre Roberts and Early Doucet. And of course his quarterback is either John Skelton or Kevin Kolb.

Missed opportunities cost Arizona - again

It's going to be one long bye week for the Arizona Cardinals. The Cardinals cut a 17-point deficit to a touchdown late in the third quarter, only to give up a 72-yard score less than a minute later that sealed their fifth straight loss. Arizona (4-5) would pick up just one first down the rest of the game, a 31-17 Green Bay victory, and will spend the next week wondering how...

Beanie Wells will likely start practicing next week

Washington St. vs. Utah: The aftermath, what went wrong?

Where to Begin? The tumultuous season the Washington State Cougars have had was recently given an exclamation point with a 49-6 ass-kicking from the Utah Utes. The Cougars came out flat, continued to play flat and ended the game flat, adding another loss to a six-game skid under Mike Leach, and assuring the new head coach his first losing season. There is no longer optimism in the...

Green Bay Packers Cruise Over Arizona Cardinals: Hero-Zero Of The Game

This win for the Packers is more proof that their slow start to the season is nothing to worry about and they are back in the running for the Super Bowl.  On the other side, this loss for the Cardinals also proved something about their fast start to the season, it was a fluke.  After starting the season 4-0, the Cardinals have since lost five straight games and are no longer in...

Fear and Criticism in Pullman

Happy Sunday Cougs.  We'll skip the formalities after yesterday's steamroller loss in Salt Lake, as the Cougs barely got off the plane in their 49-6 disaster of a game.  And let's just get right down to it, shall we? It's funny, the hope that can exist as a sports fan and all that comes with it.  A week ago at this time, after watching the Cougs came awfully...

Utah 49, Washington St. 6

Reggie Dunn returned a kickoff 100 yards for the third time in two weeks and John White rushed for 101 yards and two touchdowns as Utah defeated Washington State 49-6 Saturday. The loss was the sixth straight for Washington State (2-7, 0-6 Pac-12), assuring coach Mike Leach of his first losing season. Utah (4-5, 2-4) has won two straight. White also caught an 18-yard TD pass as...

Precedent does not bode well for Wilson

JUNIOR WIDE RECEIVER Marquess Wilson could be the 18th scholarship player by Cougfan.com’s count to leave Washington State since Mike Leach took over, but the coach could not confirm that during his Monday teleconference. Leach declined to speculate on whether the Cougars’ top wide receiver will return, although Leach’s precedent does not look promising for Wilson.
