Yes, Cougar nation, 2006 was the year of the Beaver. No doubt about it. From the national championship in baseball, to an improbable 10 win season in football. The Beavs had it this year. And in case you need ANY proof, all you had to do was see the last second 2 point conversion which won the game today for Riley’s boys. Stupid idea to go for it. Stupid play call. Pretty bad and slow execution. “And its good!!!!!!” Go figure.
So, maybe 2007 will be the year of the Cougs. Maybe in 2007 the hoops team will sneak into the dance and the sweet 16 (which IS possible). Maybe the football team goes into the season of NO expectations and wins 8 games. Maybe Alex Brink finishes in the top 10 in Heisman voting.
In other words, Happy New Year Cougar Nation.
Three more days to dream about what might lie ahead for us in 2007.
Lets just hope the next year is not full of more Beaver envy–at least not of this kind anyway..
