Cougars get nothing done in the desert


Tough for me to say much more after last night.

But what I thought was funny, in a strange sort of way, was radio commentator Jim Walden hit the keys to the game right on the helmet. Only problem was, each key he described – the WSU offensive line had to get some push up front, for example – was important because the Cougs didn’t get it done.

Glenn Kasses was in the Valley of the Sun, and here’s his game story about the debacle. He also filed a notebook, stats, how they scored and his game grades, including the first F I’ve seen him give, this to the Cougar secondary.

He also will have more on his blog.

For the Cougars to ensure a bowl bid, after losing Saturday night, they’ll have to win the Apple Cup. And, as the News Tribune’s Todd Milles points out, that would mean three consecutive Apple Cup wins, something WSU has never done. And, as usual, a ticked off Husky team will be there too.

The loss blindsided coach Bill Doba, which is kickoff off to Craig Smith’s story in the Times. He also had a notebook.
