Congratulations Seniors!! Taylor is the hero of heros and the kids played great.
THIS win epitomizes why its great to be a Cougar!
It would be to beat UCLA today.
Greetings Cougar Nation, I hope that your weekend is off to a good start!
Don't know about you all, but BH thinks that we could win all the rest of our games, lose all the rest of our games, or finish somewhere inbetween....
But here's the question for you all: If we can win only one game the rest of the way, who would you want us to beat?
Would you want us to complete the sweep of ASU? Would you want us to derail Arizona? Do you want us to spoil the conference championship hopes of the Defeateds? Or, do you want us to win today?
As for me, I prefer to take the long view.
Last time I checked, our seniors have done just about everything except beat UCLA. For that reason, nipping the Bruins in Pauley holds a special place next to my very black heart.
But the other reason for wanting to beat UCLA on the road is the importance such a victory has for the freshmen. Think forward to two years from now when a 12-3 WSU team needs a victory @UCLA to retain sole possension of first place in the Pac-10. Do you think that a "been there, done that" approach will be important for that team? I sure do.
So watch with baited breath as our boys try to do something that hasn't been done for a while. Root for Taylor and root for Baynes to break through in this game. And root for our kids to shine the brightest on the biggest pre-tourney national stage.
My prediction: UCLA 61 WSU 54.
But it wouldn't surprise me in the slighest if we shock the world.
Let's go COUGS!!!!
