Football Friday on Thursday: Will the real WSU/Oregon/CAL please stand up?

Hello Followers.  Hope you are doing great! As for me, time is really, really short today.  So, I’m going to get straight to the “analysis” of our upcoming game against Oregon. First, as the title of the post suggests, this game represents the last of the big “sorting” contests for me.  I mean, if Oregon […]

Great Expectations

Hello Followers.  Hope you are doing great. Yesterday, my good buddy Jeff Nusser at Cougcenter penned an absolutely fantastic article about the current state of Washington State Football (and his frustration with it).  At the heart of the piece was an important question for the Cougar faithful: What kind of football program do you want […]

Football Friday on a Thursday Week 5

Happy Football Friday on a Thursday, Followers.  Hope you’re having a terrific week. As for me, well, things couldn’t be more busy. But outside of the fact that I have no time to write anything about the Cougs, I wanted to take a few minutes to write down a few thoughts because, frankly, I am […]

Football Friday on Thursday, Week 3 of 2015

Happy Football Friday on Thursday Cougs, and we hope things are great with you and yours.  I don’t know about you, but I have to say that my week has been better compared to last week, when we were coming off a downer loss to PSU.  After all the hype and all that, well, that […]

Football Friday on Thursday, Week 2 of 2015

Greetings Cougs, and a happy (?) Football Friday on Thursday to you and yours. So, I’m sure some of you will find yourself in the same place I’ve been since Saturday afternoon, and that it’s been kind of a rough week.  All that excitement and buildup, the positive hopes that the program was finally looking like […]

Leach versus Willingham

Hello Followers.  Hope you’re having a great week. Well, today is Humpday. And while its taken me several days to get over last week’s loss, I’m now back to feeling optimistic about our chances this weekend.   And that means that I am also feeling a bit better about Mike Leach and his ability to […]

Over-Promising and Under-Delivering Part Deux

Hello Followers.  Hope you are doing great. Today, I wanted to take a few moments to take you through a litany of thoughts that have been flowing in and out of my brain since last Saturday’s stunning defeat to the Mighty Vikings from Portland State University. To begin, I wanted to provide a bit of […]

It’s Time

Hello Followers. And so it actually happened. Today, our Washington State Cougars got completely outclassed by a second tier FCS school–and at home no less. In so doing, Mike Leach became 0-4 in his career in WSU season openers, and the possibility of going to a second bowl in three years suddenly went from possible […]

What to Expect When You’re Expecting a Cougar Victory

Good evening and happy Thursday, Cougar nation! I’m snuggled up in my new comfy WSU sweatpants enjoying the fact that today there was real, honest-to-goodness football going on. I committed to myself that I would go a little more in depth on a prediction post for game one against the Viks (Their word not mine). […]

Football Friday on a Thursday: Week 1 2015

Hello Followers.  Hope you all are doing great! So, tonight marks the start of the 2015 College Football Season!  And so we thought it timely to post our predictions about this weekend’s games. Because time is a bit short on my end, I’ll make this brief. First, everyone and their mother knows that the Cougs […]

Start Your Engines

Hello Followers.  Hope your game week is off to a terrific start. Many early September moons ago (2001 to be exact) I got an email from my good friend and colleague Hooty McBoob.  The topic of that email thread was the Seattle Mariners, who at the time, were well on their way to their historic […]

Oh Hey, It’s Football Season

            Hello? Is this thing on? Is there anybody out there? It’s been a while since my last post (One year and four days, if you’d like to be specific). The particularly astute among you will realized that I posted in the preseason of last year, but a depressing 3-9 […]

2015 Pre-Season Ballot

Hello Followers.  Hope you all are doing great. Well, its been a long time since I have graced the pages of this hallowed and now fallowed blog.   And while I have been away, things have been quite busy on my end.  The biggest news on my end is that me and the brood now live […]

Washington State Cougars Finally Look To Maul Their Way Up Standings In ’15

The Washington State Cougars haven’t exactly been a powerhouse in the Pac-12 conference or college football, in general. That isn’t about to change suddenly in 2015, but there is plenty of reason for Cougars fans to hope for a positive step forward this season, as new defensive coordinator Alex Grinch shakes up the team’s base […]
