Wounded Knee

Hello Followers.   Hope you’re surviving this morning’s brutal Cougar Hangover. As for me, well, I’m still a little wounded.  Of course, all of that would have or could have been avoided if we had simply taken a knee a few times in the game’s final moments.  But tragically, we did not.   And while I certainly […]

The Curse Continues

Somehow, the WSU Football Blog curse re-appeared tonight and allowed the CSU Lambs to score 18 points in the last 2:42 to beat the Cougs 48-45. Yes, we Coug'd It, America.   And in so doing, we all-but ensured that nearly every Coug fan in the universe is going to get a bowl ban from […]

Bowled Over

Happy Holidays to you, Followers!  Hope you are doing great! Today we return to the post-season for the first time in a decade.  And what a decade it has been! For those who don't know, Sean and I started this blog right before the start of the 2004 campaign. And so, its pretty clear to […]

WSU Football Blogfather Show, Bowl Talk Edition

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 […]


Hello Followers.   Hope you are doing great. As for me, well, I don’t think I’ve ever felt better following an Apple Cup. I mean with all of the stuff that has hit the west side over the past few days, it almost feels as if we won the game!  Or, at the very least, it […]

Today our young men take on the mighty Washington Huskies in a game that will serve as a coming out party (of sorts) for the victors.  To check out my prediction for the final game of the regular season, click on the […]


Football Friday on a Thursday, Apple Cup 2013 Edition!

So, how does it feel to be bowl eligible going into Apple Cup week, folks? Its been a real load off my mind, for sure. Its been a season of wild ups and downs, but since we are coming off a decade of mostly downs, I am really savoring the strange, unfamiliar and amazing feeling […]

The Zebra Factor

Happy Thanksgiving (one day early), Followers! Hope you’re all gearing up for a nice day of food, family, and friends! As for me, well, today happens to be me old birthday.  And, in celebration of that cataclysmic event, I decided to bust out my favorite birthday attire…. …take a few selfies, drink a midday cocktail, […]

Apple Cup Week Begins!!!!

Hello Followers.  Hope you are doing great! As for me, well, I am beside myself with excitement!  I mean, what a thrilling, heart-pounding victory we witnessed from our young men on Saturday! And, as I noted on Saturday night on Twitter, there was a WHOLE lot to like about Mr. Connor Halliday, our deep corps […]

Utah Game Pick

Can't you see I'm trying to pee here??? Hello Followers.  Hope you’ve had a great week. After being the Lone Ranger in picking the Cougs to beat Arizona last week.. I found myself walking around the compound with an unusual amount of swagger for a late November. And that swagger remained until about Wednesday of […]

Football Friday on a Thursday, Week Thirteen of 2013

  This week marks the final home game for what may be our first memorable senior class in quite a long time. Its been six years since we last honored a senior who knew what it was like to play in a bowl game and this years group has played itself into position to end […]

Washington’s State

Hello Followers.   Hope you’re having a great week. You know, it wasn’t very long ago that I was receiving a litany of texts from my good buddy SeanHawk about all the things that were going on during the 2009-2010 “Night with Cougar Football.”   And while there were several texts that I remember well—including a few […]

Post-Run Thoughts on a Sunday, Week 10 of 2013

I think they call this a "run"?   Happy Sunday Cougs, and what a great Sunday morning it is around the great NW!  For the Cougs did something that only the true die-hards thought they would do yesterday, and that's go out on the road against a decent Pac-12 foe and get a W.  In […]
