  • December WSU Gossip

    Here are some tidbits of WSU gossip that we've heard recently. Let me throw out a few caveats. We are not reporters and not reporting this as fact. These are just fun little chunks of content that we are comfortable enough with throwing out there for the ...
  • WSU Hot Stove League Part III: Staff Changes

    The WSU version of the Hot Stove League has kicked off. The WSU Hot Stove League generally consists of off-season news that revolves around three things: recruiting, scheduling, and the coaching staff. We'll focus on each in separate articles this week. E...
  • Hugh Millen is either a poor analyst or a pathetic human being

      I'm not sure if many of you saw the most recent article in The Seattle Times around Jake Locker. It essentially boiled down to a grown man trying to guilt or shame a 4th year college student into staying under the guise of numbers that he cooked up. ...

  • 2010 Starts Now

    What needs to happen over the next 14 days to set us up for 2010? This season was awful and there were many legitimate reasons for that. As I watched Apple Cup I saw a team playing damn hard and short the players needed to win. I saw a gameplan that was v...
  • WSU's Building Blocks Must Contribute

    As this season comes to its abysmal end; I find that the one glimmer of hope that keeps me positive is the realization that we have a plethora of young talent waiting for their opportunity to shine. Next year the coaching staff will have their first oppo...
  • Who should be fired after the season?

    In this season of injury and disappointment it's hard to pin the blame on a single area since there has been so much failure. Yes, there has been improvement. No, it has not been the amount that we would hope for given the futile nature of last season. Th...
  • Why does San Diego State hate us so much?

    Building on the "How to defend Paul Wulff" post  that was put up earlier (which you should read if you haven't already) it's interesting to look at our recruiting list from this year and compare them to 2008 and 2009 strictly based on other schools that ...
  • How to Defend Paul Wulff

    This week Paul Wulff blasted his fellow Pac-10 coaches for poaching recruits and called for an early signing period, such as exists for basketball. I think what really sucks here, is that WSU has to work harder than (arguably) any other team in the Pac 1...
  • Our best three weeks are coming up

    Everyone seems to feel like UCLA is our only shot at winning another game this year. I wonder why that is. Has anyone noticed that UW just lost to them following a bye week and that the Dogs are about to lose hope for a bowl after this weekend? Is it beca...
  • The Cougs are a bettors best friend

    We are now 5-1 against the spread in our past six games. That means we've beat the expectations of the smartest college football followers in the world (the guys setting the betting lines in Vegas) five of the past six weeks. If you are asking the questio...
  • This one's for you BCC Husky Alum

    Have you been paying attention to the Huskies season so far? It's hard to ignore over here on the west side. You'd think they were contending for the Rose Bowl based on the overly optimistic coverage you hear these days.  It wouldn't be so bad if you did...
  • WSU's football schedule for 2010

    The Pac-10 puts itself at a major competitive disadvantage by doing full round-robin scheduling. All major conferences other than the Pac-10 play 8 league games rather than 9. That enables them to play 4 out of conference games. The strategy is to play tw...
  • We're 4-1!

    Well....against the spread at least. That means over the past five weeks we've beaten the performance expectations of the most unbiased and knowledgeable college football followers in the world....that would be the Vegas folks setting betting lines for ea...
  • More well hidden progress

    We covered against the spread once more this week. We are now 4-1 against the spread in our past five games. I'm not sure what to make of the consistent slow starts. Some will say that it's a product of our talent being overmatched when the opponent is ...
  • Is Ken Bone the next Mike Price?

    I'm starting to think that the ceiling for Ken Bone's coaching career is one similar to what Mike Price had at WSU. Would you take that over the next eight years? I'm inclined to say yes but it's a tough call. Take a look at where I think these guys are s...
  • Need a little jolt of optimism?

    Over the past four games we are 3-1 against the spread. That means three out of the past four games we've performed better than the guys in Vegas thought we would do against our opponent. We have reduced the average points we give up by 8 points from...
  • D-line depth arriving and QB situation clearing?

    Interesting stuff in the Grippi blog today. Looks like Rankin and Buckley are on track to qualify. Also, a few thoughts on the JC QB visiting and the progress of David Gilbertson. I'm absolutely pumped to see that Rankin is likely headed up in January. ...
  • The Lobster should be our designated clipboard holder....

    There is one thing that has become abundantly clear watching Coug football games this season. It's that Marshall Lobesstael is not a Pac-10 quality quarterback. Now we see plenty of reasons for why this is the case. The staff will tell you that it's becau...
