Nice, epic FAIL by those Zags? And what is a Zag exactly? Oh well. I have to agree with BH's assessment after the game, that they were soft, soft, soft. And as Nuss pointed out after watching them in Portland last week, they looked undisciplined with the basketball, as well as lacking a commitment to the defensive end. It all spelled blowout city.
Here's a question for Coug fans - did YOU find yourself rooting for Gonzaga? Or are they too much of a rival now that you root against them? And I wonder what this does to Mark Few's star? You never overreact to one game when analyzing a coach, and it is admirable with their run of NCAA appearances. But was last night an example of 1) Few's got some weaknesses, big-time, or 2) Gonzaga is a nice, competitive program who is the king of the mid-major, yet will never become the powerhouse they aspire to be?
Few's been bandied about quite a bit for the Oregon job, but of course, that job has to actually come open. We'll see.
So, we made some changes around here. First of all, you may notice the new web address. No longer limited to "blogspot.com", the new address is officially "wsufootballblog.com". Things are transitioning over this weekend, so you may see some weirdness over the next couple of days. In the meantime the regular address should work just fine.
For the new address, you can type in www.wsufootballblog.com, you can type just http://wsufootballblog.com, it doesn't really matter. You can even use the old-school wsufootball.blogspot.com, and still get here. That old blogspot.com address will always work. You will just get redirected to the new URL. But you might want to update your bookmarks or favorites or whatever.
We also cleaned up our news feed a bit. It was a little clunky and some unrelated stories were showing up, so we ditched it. Instead, we now have a WSU widget to the immediate top-right of the site. Click on the "menu" button, and you will see all the RSS feeds that are available from around the 'net. Click on the arrow buttons at the top of the widget to see the different news sections. It's cleaner and more precise to get all your WSU news. We will be adding other RSS feeds going forward, but it's entirely up to you which news feeds you want to see.
Finally, the photo contest. Yes, it's over as far as submitting photos. We will have a post shortly to show off the final five choices, and YOU will get to vote on the finalists. Should be fun?
That's it for a quick post today. Enjoy your weekend, and as always, GO COUGS!
