Bowled Over

Happy Holidays to you, Followers!  Hope you are doing great! Today we return to the post-season for the first time in a decade.  And what a decade it has been! For those who don't know, Sean and I started this blog right before the start of the 2004 campaign. And so, its pretty clear to all who  have a pulse that our decade of futility wasn't caused by poor coaching...

The Curse Continues

Somehow, the WSU Football Blog curse re-appeared tonight and allowed the CSU Lambs to score 18 points in the last 2:42 to beat the Cougs 48-45. Yes, we Coug'd It, America.   And in so doing, we all-but ensured that nearly every Coug fan in the universe is going to get a bowl ban from Bill Moos. As for me, I just can't believe that this blog is now responsible for more...

Wounded Knee

Hello Followers.   Hope you’re surviving this morning’s brutal Cougar Hangover. As for me, well, I’m still a little wounded.  Of course, all of that would have or could have been avoided if we had simply taken a knee a few times in the game’s final moments.  But tragically, we did not.   And while I certainly wasn’t a fan of how Leach responded to questions after...

Merry X-mas Cougs

  Merry X-mas Cougs, and a happy holidays to you and yours.  Our old pal Hooty McBoob in the photo doing the Santa Claus thing this year, complete with the Coug logo undershirt of course.  As always we tip our hat Hooty's way for always rising to the occasion this time of year!  Note – ever seen Santa Butch?  Over the last decade or so there is a good chance that it...

The Season is Over

Happy New Year to you, Followers.  I hope your New Year is off to a great start. Last night, the Florida State Seminoles capped off the third best game of the BCS era (Ohio State-Miami and USC-Texas were the top two) by beating the Auburn Tigers 34-31.  And in so doing, closed the book on the 2013 College Football season.   And so now we in the WSU Football Blog universe...

Beating the Punch

Hello Followers.  Hope you’re having a great week. A few moments ago, my good friend and colleague John Wilner just Tweeted that he is expecting that the 2014 Pac12 Football schedules will be released shortly.  And since that topic was targeted by moi for a post later this week, I thought it timely to fire off a few thoughts about our prospects before the schedule is actually...

2014 Schedule is OUT!!!

  Hello Followers.   Well, the schedule came out a few short moments ago.  If you compare what's above to what I wrote a few hours ago here, I'd say things came out pretty favorable.  The big downer for me is the placement of Oregon–since I don't see how our D will mature fast enough to have a real shot in that one.  That said, Oregon plays Michigan State at...

ICE COLD

  Hello Followers.  Hope your week is off to a great start. With the Seahawks on the verge of a berth in the Superbowl, today we take a brief departure from the topic of Cougar Sports to delve into the great realm of sports superstitions/lucky charms. So, if you want to check out the backstory of America’s soon-to-be favorite stuffed miniature #Rahkmed, then click on the...

Guest Post: Join The Team

By Selahcoug Hello fellow Cougs.  I am writing today to talk about something many in the blogosphere are probably somewhat familiar with, and that is the Cougar Athletic Fund.  While many here may know what this is, I have found that just as many Cougs out there really do not know what this means.  For one, there seems to be a pretty common misconception that the Alumni Association...

WSU Football Blogfather Show, Bowl Talk Edition

We're going to Albuquerque! Happy Monday Cougs, and we hope things are well with you and yours.  For today we as Coug fans are FINALLY back in the postseason, officially, for the first time in 10 years.  Yes, it's a lower-tier bowl in the eyes of many against a non-BCS opponent.  Yes, there were rumors-n-such that maybe the Cougs were headed for a possibly more desirable...

Sark-Chasm

Hello Followers.   Hope you are doing great. As for me, well, I don’t think I’ve ever felt better following an Apple Cup. I mean with all of the stuff that has hit the west side over the past few days, it almost feels as if we won the game!  Or, at the very least, it has been AWESOME that virtually nobody is talking about the fact that we lost.  So, let’s keep it that...

Football Friday on a Thursday, Apple Cup 2013 Edition!

So, how does it feel to be bowl eligible going into Apple Cup week, folks? Its been a real load off my mind, for sure. Its been a season of wild ups and downs, but since we are coming off a decade of mostly downs, I am really savoring the strange, unfamiliar and amazing feeling of going into the Apple Cup knowing that no matter what, we will have another game to watch over the holidays...

As for me, well, today happens to be me old birthday.  And, in celebration of that cataclysmic event, I decided to bust out my favorite birthday attire…. …take a few selfies, drink a midday cocktail, and then hum a few bars about the Cougs. ...
