Golfing for Columbine

Rat Fart!!!!!! Hello Followers. Four score and nearly twenty years ago I was a golfer.  Not a good one mind you, but a golfer nonetheless.  In fact, hardly a weekend went by when I was not hacking it up with my beloved Uncle and his buddies at Jackson, Willows, Snohomish, and all points between. And like I said, I was never a good golfer.  In fact, for nearly all of my golfing...

Will a leader emerge?

Greetings Cougs, and a happy Humpday to you and yours.  As always, we hope all is well in your neck of the woods. So, last week happened and the Cougs are 0-2.  Things are already looking bleak at this point, this sudden feeling of hopelessness that appears to be working it’s way through many corners of the usual stops on the WSU interwebs.  Not all corners, mind you, and in...

How Did We Get Here?

Hello Followers. After Friday night’s horrible, but unsurprising loss, Cougar Nation is left with a pretty basic question.  How the hell did we get here?  Today’s post is focused on answering that very question.  And because that question elicits a whole lot of issues, answering it is going to take a while.  So, pull up a chair and let’s get to it, shall we? Part 1.  How...

RENO 911

Hello Followers. Well, GameDay has finally arrived for Week 2.  And boy am I nervous! At start of the off-season (post spring), I had this game marked down as one of the games that could really derail our bid for a special year (like 8-4 or better).   Little did I know that we would drop the Rutgers game and that this game would represent the first major “Must Win” of the...

Rise and Grind – One last look edition

  Happy Thursday Cougs, as we here at WSU Football Blog wish all the best to you and yours. So like many of you, I have been trying to really figure out the week one loss vs. Rutgers and what it really means as we roll forward in 2014.  And when I say figure it out, what I mean is that I’m trying to decide what to really “glean” from what we saw and, further, if there’s...

Terrible Twos Day

Hello Followers.   Hope you had a great Labor Day Weekend. Yesterday, I had just enough time to jump on the old treadmill… And take in the Pac-12 rewind of last Thursday’s game against Rutgers.  And after watching that game, I didn’t know if I should jump up and down with excitement or throw myself on the ground and have a fit a la a two year old. So, of course, I decided...

ESPN Gameday Flags – Everyone’s doing it?

Happy Gameday Saturday Cougs, as college football on the weekends is now a part of your life for the next, well, 3+ months or so.  Apologies to those significant others out there who may not be “all in” like you when it comes to college football, but they most likely know the drill by now. Anyway, the Coug flags are flying proudly once again on ESPN Gameday.  I don’t know...

Overreaction Friday – It’s Over Edition

Greetings Cougs, and a happy pre-holiday weekend Friday to you and yours. And there you go – that is my attempt to be “up” today, as I’m still coming down off last night’s game.  It’s really tough to sugarcoat things after what happened, but let’s get to a few thoughts after witnessing that nightmare in person, shall we? First I think it’s appropriate after games...

The Jersey Boys

Hello Followers. Well, Game Day has finally arrived.   In a few short hours, we will take on the boys from the State University of New Jersey, otherwise known as Rutgers. If I was as clever as Huddy, I’d figure out a way to fashion this post after all of the songs by Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons (scroll down and check out Huddy’s Hunches to see what I’m talking about...

Hump Day With Huddy – It’s Here

Good morning and happy hump day, Cougar Nation! It’s been a long damn time so let’s first get ourselves reacquainted. I’m that guy who writes that stuff on that website that you all know and love. A lot has happened since last we spoke, but let’s focus on the highlights. First, I became a soccer coach. I think that’s pretty much it on the news front. For all of you that...

The 10 Commandments

  Hello Followers. Every year when the regular season ends for College basketball, my good friend Sean Hawkins issues one of my favorite refrains:  “If we win the rest of our games, we will win the National Championship.” And, as we embark on this 2014 campaign, the same can be said about Cougar Football.  If win 13 games this year, we’ll be playing in the Rose Bowl for...

Go ahead, kick it…   Happy Monday Cougs, and welcome to game week already for 2014.  Already in that yeah, can’t wait for football to get rolling and all that, but man has this summer just flown by for yours truly.  But fall is in the air, you can feel it coming can’t you?  And with that, the Cougs get things started Thursday night vs. Rutgers. What are we going to see...

Dare To Dream

By Coug-A-Sutra Hello Followers.  Hope you’re doing great. Well, we’re now one week away from the season opener against Rutgers.  And so, after today’s practice, Game Week will finally be upon us! Normally, the excitement of the upcoming season is palpable.  And this year?  Well, it seems to have gotten a tad bit gloomy. For example, yesterday, WSU announced that a paltry...

By Coug-A-Sutra Hello Followers.  Hope you’re doing great! Tomorrow, our young Cougies will convene back in Pullman, gather their belongings, and head on down to Lewiston for the first two weeks of Fall Camp. And let me tell you, I am really excited. Of course, I’m excited every year.  And the reason for my annual excitement is simple: I am always sure that the coming year...

Mirror or Mirage?

By Coug-A-Sutra Hello Followers.  Hope you’re getting ready for a fantastic weekend—the last one in July if you can believe it!!!! So, Pac-12 Media Week is now over.  And in true Blue fashion, the media went chalk with their picks, going with Oregon, Stanford, Washington, Oregon State, WSU, and CAL in the North.  Of course, their picks stood in stark contrast to my pre-camp...

By Coug-A-Sutra Hello Followers! Hope you’re going great. As for me, well, I’m cold chilling on vacation somewhere in the mountains of the Southeast.  But since its mid-July, it’s time once again to release our annual Media Day Ballot to the Pac-12 Conference.   So without further ado, let’s get down to it! +++++ Followers, in the past, when it came to putting together...

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...

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...
