Last thoughts before WSU-UW


I’ve got a suggestion for future Apple Cups. Instead of holding them at Qwest Field, let’s move them to Phoenix, or LA or Honolulu. True fans will show up and we can all be warm. It’s a win-win for everybody. This cold crud has got to stop. Read on.


• The amazing thing is how many fans are already sprinkled throughout the upper deck. It’s got to be about 10 degrees with the wind-chill figured in. Those are true fans. … Both teams’ special teams are on the field, trying to acclimate themselves to the conditions, which really aren’t that bad – I tend toward exaggeration, of course. … We’ve sort of covered the football aspect of this already today on the earlier post, but we’ve got a couple more thoughts. … The Cougar defense as beat up as it was last week. Some of the guys who played all those minutes are hurting, like Anthony Laurenzi. If the WSU defense is to survive today, the offense has to keep the ball at least a third of the time today to give the defense some rest. It hasn’t happened all that much this year. … Brandon Jones is suited up and it looks as if he will play. … One last thought. No matter what happens today, the season ends. And let me tell you, it’s not a moment too soon. For everyone who has to deal with WSU this year, it’s been a long season. … Go ahead an use this post for your first-half comments.


• That’s it for now. We’ll be back at halftime. Until then …
