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 […]

Tough loss, tougher season

  Well, another tough loss for our Cougs.  Things started off slowly, as Stanford ate up big chunks of yardage early and hit on some big plays.  But then the Cougs just kind of got settled in, and even cut it to a 7-point game early in the 4th quarter.  But for most of the night, […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Win Out

Hello Followers.  Hope you’re doing great. As we all know, Saturday night produced 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 […]

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 […]

Golfing for Columbine

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
