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 […]

Washington State’s Most Expensive Games Are All On The Road

Mike Leach and his air-raid offense will represent the Washington State football program for a fourth season after a disappointing 2014 that resulted in a 3-9 overall record (2-7 Pac-12 North). It can only go up from last season, which ended abruptly for senior quarterback Connor Halliday, who was leading the FBS in passing yards […]

Can We Score?

Hello Followers.  Hope you’re doing great! As of this minute, it is an hour and a half  from the start of today’s game against the USC Trojans.   And even though I’ve lost the time I need to put up a decent post, I did want to pass along a few thoughts. To begin, I think […]

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 […]

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 […]
