Alright, Cougar Nation, I know its been a long day.
I know its been an emotional ride following the season, the Apple Cup victory, and now Doba's departure.
And I know, dear Big Apple, that losing your coach was hard on you today, and I'm glad you stood up for him, but do you think you could allow Brinkhater to forever rest? In other words, would you stop with your news conference stuff and just go away?
Sorry, I digress.
Now, speaking of Mr. Price, there are good reasons why he should not be the man. The BIGGEST of the reasons pertains to the same issues surrounding Doba. Namely, what is the succession plan? Given Price's age, how long would he want to do it? And who would he hand the program off to when he left?
Those, dear Crimson faithful are good questions.
But, can we spare the other comments about needing new blood?
I mean, DID YOU ALL FORGET THAT WE WENT TO TWO ROSE BOWLS WITH PRICE?
DID YOU ALL FORGET THAT BEFORE PRICE THERE WERE ZERO ROSE BOWLS IN 67 YEARS?
My god, we wanted Doba gone cuz he couldn't lead us to a bowl, and we don't want Price back because he went 4-8 at a second rate school in the middle of the Sun Bowl? Come on.
So, please, lets be a bit more heady than what we've been so far. If there's a dynamite guy out there that can:
Then I am ALL FOR IT.
But don't, Cougar Nation, look a gift horse in the mouth.
We are WSU and what we don't need is to forget what Price did here: The Unthinkable.
