We're going to Albuquerque!
Happy Monday Cougs, and we hope things are well with you and yours. For today we as Coug fans are FINALLY back in the postseason, officially, for the first time in 10 years. Yes, it's a lower-tier bowl in the eyes of many against a non-BCS opponent. Yes, there were rumors-n-such that maybe the Cougs were headed for a possibly more desirable locale/matchup (Texas/Shreveport/Honolulu?). But in the end, it's my belief anyway that all of that just doesn't matter right now. WSU is 6-6, and this is where 6-6 teams go in the postseason - playing Colorado State in a bowl game, the first bowl game to kick off the 2013 postseason, and it's on ESPN. The speculation and hand-wringing is all over, and this is what's next. So there.
The bottom line here is that hey, maybe some day we'll look back at this year as THE year things all turned around. You have to start somewhere, and as a great man once said, a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. And the reality is that after all the turmoil and negativity of the last year or two, Mike Leach got WSU back to the postseason in just his second year.
Anyway, we talked about it all last night on our little podcast thing. After some technical difficulties in which the beginning was pretty much amateur hour on my part, we got the show up and running, so check it out:no comments
