Won the Battle, But the War?

Hello Followers: Well, tonight our young Cougs overwhelmed a decent Idaho team in the middle half of the game and then held on for a 76-64 victory. A few thoughts before Longball checks in with his (hopefully) first hand takes. 1) A bad win?  At the start of the game, I was sure that this was going […]

Battle of the Palouse!

Hello Cougar Nation. There’s a border war brewing on the Palouse.  And it’s your old pal Longball, here to tell you all why I have carpel tunnel syndrome from wringing my hands over tonight’s match up on the hardwood with our neighbors, the Vandals. First of all, lets be clear… this is a rivalry game. […]

Pac-10 Winners and Losers

Hello Followers. Hope you’re having a great week. Well, last week we all bore witness to the fact that I represent the “Biggest Loser” of the blog universe. Today, we take a look at the winners and losers from this year’s Pac-10 football season. Want to know who finished in Sutra’s top and bottom five? […]

WSU Cougars of the Decade

Top of the morning to you Cougs!  Well, with the year – and decade, for that matter – winding down, we thought it would be a good idea to take a look back at Cougar football.  Wait, a look back at ’09?  Nah, not really.  We’re talking the entire 2K DECADE.  And why not?  I […]

WSU QB Recruit Connor Halliday Highlight Video

Good morning Cougs.  A quick post to start your week.  Today we take a look at video of none other than Ferris QB Connor Halliday, the lone QB verbally committed to WSU for this upcoming signing class. Halliday, as you’ll see, has all the measurables.  Good size at 6-5, a strong, accurate arm, excellent feet, […]

WSU Sunday Thoughts

Happy Sunday Cougs.  A quick post to catch up on things after a somewhat wild weekend, so, here goes: Tough night for future Coug QB Connor Halliday.  His numbers were pretty good, matching Jake Heaps yard-for-yard (254 from each QB).  But Heaps would throw four TD’s, all without an interception.  While Halliday threw three TD’s […]

Time to Pay Up: Ted Miller Style

Hello Followers. Hope you’ve had a good week. Well, for me, bad news always seems to come in threes. Last night, it was that haunting Cougar loss to the Zags after whooping the kids from the kennel for 35 minutes. Then, it was the HORROR of watching the Beavs lose their Rose Bowl dreams for […]

Oregon Hating A-Z

Heartbreak Hotel

Wow. In spite of playing a fantastic basketball game for 35 minutes, our boys folded down the stretch and lost 74-69 to the Zags. (This was a carbon copy of Gonzaga’s loss to Michigan State, by the way) This is one that we are really, really, REALLY going to want back not only tonight, but season’s […]

Gonzaga Preview

Hello Followers. Hope you’re having a great week. As we all know, basketball season is really starting to kick into full gear. Tonight, our upstart Cougies take on the vaunted Bullpups of GU at the Kennel. Then, on Saturday, we head on over to Manhattan, Kansas to take on a very talented Kansas State squad. […]


WSU Staff Stability Not Yet Clear?

Tough news tonight from Paul Wulff’s season-ender, per Bud withers of the Times.  Safety Eric Block (pictured), and offensive linemen Joe Eppele and Kevin Freitag are all likely out of the Cougars’ plans for 2010 and beyond.  Of the three, at least Eppele has his health!  He will move on to CFL glory in the […]

Sneak-a-Peek at WSU QB Future?

Happy Tuesday Cougs.  Now, obviously with the season now done, the news is going to slow down quite a bit.  Unless something breaks within the team, such as a tweak or two to the coaching staff or some recruiting news, things are going to slow down.  Hey, when you have no postseason bowl to look […]

Quick Monday Update, Plus Blog Poll

Happy Monday Cougs, and back to the grind following the long weekend.  Just a quick update to get your week started. So, how do YOU handle a Coug loss, especially an Apple Cup loss, the day after?  Do you avoid the media, the newspaper, etc?  It’s a tough thing to do in this day and […]

OverReaction Sunday: Tweaker Edition

Good morning Cougs.  Yes, the sun came up (even though you can’t see it through all the low clouds and drizzle this wet, gloomy Sunday on the west side).  There isn’t much to really talk about in regards to yesterday, is there?  I mean yeah, we could run one of those ESPN-style breakdowns, including the […]
