Once upon a time....
Happy Thursday Cougs, as we roll towards the New Year's weekend. You know you just have to love this time of year, with all this time off. I was lucky enough to get Monday and Tuesday off as company holiday, as my company was named in the Top 25 best companies to work for by Fortune magazine for 2012. A perk of getting in that coveted top-25? X-mas Eve AND New Year's Eve off as company holidays! In other words, back-to-back four-day weekends. In my line of work this is an extremely crazy/busy time of year, so I can't tell you enough how happy we all were to get these long holiday weekends.
But enough about me. A few days ago, WSU's official site took a stroll down memory lane with a look at the 1988 Aloha Bowl. It was cool to read their recap of the game, and brought back a few memories for yours truly. You see, the fall of '88 was when I finally decided I would head to WSU as a student, so that was a fun football season to watch and think about being in the stands the next year (of course, I hoped that the fall of '89 would include Dennis Erickson and Timm Rosenbach, but that's another story!). Anyway, that was a great finish for an excellent 9-3 football team, one that saw Rosenbach lead the country in passing efficiency after leading the world in INT's the prior year, and the Cougs had two 1,000+ yard running backs in Rich Swinton and Steve Broussard. Erickson's one-back attack was becoming the hot, cool new offense and really was part of a one-back revolution across the nation.
So with all these bowl games whizzing by left and right this time of year, of course it's a natural thing to think about good 'ol WAZZU and why it flippin' BLOWS that we are sitting this one out - again. And here's a few reasons why.....no comments
