On To October 1

Hello Followers. Last night, the Boise State Broncos held off a late Washington State comeback and nipped the Cougs 31-28.  And in so doing, put the Cougars’ once very promising season squarely on the brink. Because both time and will are short on my end, I’m going to try to keep this BSU postmortem  very, […]

Hello Followers. Well, on Saturday night, our Cougs dropped their fifth straight opener under Mike Leach as well as our second straight defeat to an FCS foe. And while Eastern Washington looked a lot more like a Pac-12 team than a Big Sky patsy to these blind eyes, Saturday’s smack-down left all of Coug Nation […]

More Burning Questions!

Happy Game Week Hump Day, Cougs! If you’re like me, you are completely worked into a lather at this point following the announcement that Nick Viall will be the leading man on the next season of “The Bachelor” and can’t wait to see if the fourth time is a charm on his quest to find […]
