WSU starts flat, gets flattened by ASU


Once again we’re going to have to try to find our way out of a dark and locked stadium. But at the end of the rainbow is a cold drink and the ability to forget what I just watched. Anyhow, we have some notes and links, so read on.


• You can read our game story here and our notebook here. After you’re done with that, I have some more thoughts. … I had an inkling this would happen – hence the question earlier this week. This team is tired mentally and physically drained. As Paul Wulff said, the Cougars could use a bye. But they don’t get one for a couple more weeks. The mental aspect might be the more important element, because, after having to get so fired up to play the past three weeks – or an embarrassment would occur – there was a natural tendency to not be so amped – especially for a young team. I asked Wulff about it Thursday in his news conference and he thought it was possible, but didn’t think it would happen. He kept that attitude, he said after the game, up until the opening kickoff. Then he could tell it was going to be a tough night. The fire wasn’t there. The hitting wasn’t there. The results were not there. … Well, I’m being asked to leave, so we’ll wrap it up. We’ll be back in morning with another post.


• That’s all for now. See you in the morning. Until then …
