Fundamental Football Facts

Hello Followers. On Saturday night, our Washington State Cougars bowed down to the suddenly mighty Arizona Wildcats by the score of 59-37.  And as a result of the loss, we lost all hope of returning to the post-season for a second consecutive year. And while last night’s loss was certainly disappointing, the fact of the matter is that there was virtually nothing that was surprising...

No Defending This Season

Hello Followers.  Hope you all are doing great! As this past week or so has indicated, the bye week has all-but mirrored a “goodbye” week for me and the blog.  And the reason for my absence has been simple: Work has been taking a toll.  So much so that it’s becoming increasingly more difficult to find the 30-40 minutes needed to put together a post. But, since I haven...

Tough loss, tougher season

#457031800 / gettyimages.com Well, another tough loss for our Cougs.  Things started off slowly, then they kind of got settled and even cut it to a 7-point game early in the 4th quarter.  But for most of the night, I think all of you who watched it can probably come away with a similar feeling – the Cougs hung tough, but for the most part were manhandled up front on both sides...

Washington St. football tickets averaging just $18 for matchup with Stanford

The Stanford Cardinal (3-2), who rank No. 25 in the most recent AP Poll, will look to bounce back after a devastating, last-second defeat to the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. With just 1:01 remaining in the fourth quarter, Stanford’s stout defense, which is allowing just 8.6 points per game, allowed a 24-yard touchdown pass to give the Fighting Irish the win. Stanford’s top playmakers...

Hogan’s Heroes

Hello Followers.  Hope you are doing great. Tonight our young Cougars take on the three time defending conference champions—and on the road no less.  And while this game represents a near certain “must win” for our bowl hopes, this one is equally critical for the Cardinal.  Simply put, with a loss tonight, Stanford will fall to 3-3 on the year and 1-2 in league.  Not good...

First or Worst?

Hello Followers.  Hope you’ve had a fantastic week! As you can probably tell from my absence, this week has been crazy for me. And with a host of deadlines looming, this post is going to be unusually short. Anyhow, while I wasn’t able to watch the second half of the Arizona-Oregon game, the outcome of that contest was shocking.  For me, the most shocking result wasn’t the...

Well that was fun!

  Our own Longball was at the stadium in Salt Lake on Saturday night.  Here is his “at the scene” recap: First off, I got to watch the replay on TV last night and I gotta tell ya, the TV does not do justice to the weather situation. Some of the most clutch drives of the night were right into the face of stiff winds. I saw more than one hat leave the stadium on a gust of wind...

Shoot the Moon

Hello Followers. Four score and forty years ago, I was a pretty big fan of the Washington Huskies (FYI, there are quite a few Cougar Bloggers out there who also started their lives on the dark side).  And the reason for my Husky fandom was simple: As a child, my dad was an Assistant Professor at UW doing what Assistant Professors do:  Working really hard and make absolutely zero...

The Next Big Step?

  Greetings Cougs, and a happy Humpday to you and yours.  As always, we hope things are good as we continue to grind our way through another week. Personally, well, I’m stressed.  Work for me is usually pretty steady in full, billable weeks, but my crazy time as we push for revenue is always the biggest in the 4th quarter (kind of like football?).  But it seems the really busy...

Win Out

They Remain On-Top, But Barely Hello Followers.  Hope you’re doing great. As we all know, Saturday night witnessed what was almost a legendary night for Cougar Football.  For 56 minutes, our shining group of upstarts hung with the #2 ranked team in the country; and did so in front of a sold-out, vibrant, and beautiful Martin Stadium.  And the reason they hung in the game was...

Track Meet

Hello Followers. Four score and more than twenty five years ago I was pretty good at sports.  I played the soccer, I played the basketball, the baseball, bit of the tennis, and even a bit of the golf.  In fact, I was good enough at soccer to be offered a (half) scholarship to a Division 1 school in the Midwest, where I played for one year before transferring to WSU for my sophomore...

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...

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...
