How 'Bout Those WSU Verbal Commitments?

So with Washington getting their 9th verbal commitment, I thought I'd check in on the Cougs to see how it's going. There are new stories posted every day that WSU is on different players "short lists", so I thought hmmmm, maybe I've missed a few guys that have verballed, and heck, I thought it was a good idea to check in on how we're doing out there.

GUESS WHAT?? Right now, there are zero. None. Zip. Goose-Egg. Nada. Zilch. Etc. That's right, zero. Not a single NCAA prospect has pledged their love to WSU and decided it would be a good idea to play football in Pullman, getting a full ride scholie in the process. Excuse me, but WTF is that all about!?!? Have you seen UCLA's list? 23 bad-ass dudes of the 4-and-5 star rating have already said YES SIR to Dorrell and the powder-blue uni's. As I wrote on AOL today, UW has 9 commits now, 3 of which are 4-star players. UW is dead serious about becoming the "BIG DOG" of the NW again. Like it or not, we're getting our asses handed to us out there. I know Doba hates the early offers, and he made that very clear at the football dinner in February, but come on. If everyone else is doing it, and doing it well, what is the hold-up?? I don't get it. When is basketball season??

Doba said that early verbals lead to big mistakes but this is bad. Real bad. Not because we are losing players to our NW rivals. That has always been. The bad if we are losing out to our rivals because we are not even giving offers because it's too early. if our NW RIVALS are doing it we should to! GOD WE SUCK.

The Cougars basketball success is nice, but WSU is, and always has been, a football school. Granted, thus far recruiting has sucked, but most of the prospects our NW rivals have gone after have not been interested in WSU. Maybe we don't need a lot of recruits this coming year. Besides, Doba said this years crop was his best ever. Have some faith in the football team!
