Lone Star Dietz ... a sham?

So ... this is sort of a big deal. At least as far as my understanding of Washington State Cougar history is concerned. I hope this isn't true, but here we go: h...

Simming the Season

What kind of pathetic fanbase would simulate a season and publish game recaps?


The "Blowout" Theory

I am the son of Washington State graduates. I met my wife in Pullman. Now, we have a 7 month old who, although he doesn't know it yet, will go to Washington State University. On game days, we...

Husky recruit "plays" baseball

I hope he plays football with similar success.


Parking Question

I am finally heading back to Pullman for a football game this season. The last time I was at a Cougar home game, they beat Oregon handily. How's that for perspective? My wife and I will be...


Our Beloved Sports Announcers

With the sudden, untimely punch-to-the-face that was Dave Niehaus' death, I have spent a good portion of my Veterans' Day listening to highlights on the radio, watching YouTube clips and...

Has anyone heard about this book?

Just throwing it out there. Anyone interested in starting a book club?

Bye Bye Breshers

Tyreese Breshers is done at UW. Retiring at age 20. Thoughts?

Deadspin finds the Craigslist of College Basketball

I found this amazingly interesting. I can't tell you why, but I did. Look to see who is available and who is looking for open dates. It's also interesting to see how teams are "marketing" themselves - sometimes as losers, sometimes as guaranteed money ... fascinating. EDIT NUSS: Did nobody notice yet that WE WERE IN THERE last year? Guess we ended up filling those dates ... are in there for this upcoming season? (Thanks cougfan for noticing.)


Anyone Interested in a Little Viewing Party?

Last time we played UW, I went to Sport Bar and Grill in Fisher Plaza to watch the game and had a pretty good time ... minus the second half.  I just thought I might take a flier and see if anyone...

Red Turf at Eastern? What about Pullman?

I heard about this the other day from a co-worker who thought WSU was going to install the red turf. I was at first thankful that it turned out to be Eastern, but as I though about it more, I became more interested. It might be cool to install a green/red hybrid just for the sake of uniqueness. There is actually grass called Red Fescue that is native to our northern climates that could be a model for the such a hybrid. Go Cougs?

If you watched last night's game, you probably saw the Griffey/ARod commercial about 20 times. I'm not sure what to make of FSN's angle here, but it got me to thinking about what I would love to see during this 4 -game series. Griffey is the "hero-come-home" while A-Rod will always be a villian. Always! Wouldn't it be fun, if for the next 4 days, the fans at Safeco gave Griffey a standing ovation every time he came to bat? On the flip side of that, every time A-Rod comes to bat, he gets the treament he has come to expect since he left. Perhaps this is juvenile. Perhaps it is a little too contrived. However, I do think it would be fun ... possibly even funny.

Check out Shaver Hansen's Dad

I remember this guy from my childhood ... tobacco drooling down his chin. I believe he is the single reason why I never tried chew, despite playing ball for 24+ years.


Athletics vs. Academics

I understand Sterk's worries, but the university as a whole is very strong. In fact, in past years the academic and facilities side of the school has been called a cash cow in the sense that they...


Pullman is Pullman.

And that is just the way it is. - Ian Furness I would wear that if it was on a t-shirt and that sounds like the plan.  I think it's something that we all must embrace and appreciate and...


I love you guys

When I was 4 years old, I was in the Northgate Mall parking lot with my dad as we listen to the final moments of that year's Apple Cup.  I asked my dad if we were winning and he replied as he...
