While at Hawaii, Jones’ teams were in the top five nationally in total offense each of his eight years. But his Southern Methodist University team that hosts Washington State Saturday may be stronger on the other side of the ball.

Cougars prepare for SMU’s run-and-shoot

Going into last season’s matchup with Southern Methodist University, Washington State’s defensive coaches thought they had a pretty good plan to contain the Mustangs’ run-and-shoot offense. Then the Cougars went out and gave up 504 yards of total offense, including a 46-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter.

John Blanchette: Cougars will take it

The wearing of hair shirts and the hurling of high, hard ones can resume soon enough this week in and around Washington State. For a few hours, at least, the mantra can be, “No matter the opponent...”

Washington State not taking Bobcats lightly

PULLMAN – There’s a gap between the schools in the Football Bowl Subdivision, like Washington State University, and their counterparts in the Championship Subdivision, like Montana State, and it goes beyond the fact the FCS teams actually have a playoff to determine a national champion.

Time helps heal Jason McEndoo

“There is just going to be a lot of raw emotion to the game this weekend,” Jason McEndoo says of the Montana State at Washington State game on Saturday. “I think a lot of people have no idea the underpinnings of the game.”

Cougars after fresh start

It only happened once last season. And it came in the season’s third game. The “it” would be a Washington State University football victory, of which there have been just three the past two seasons.

Jeff Tuel vs. Brandon Weeden

PULLMAN – They both threw high-velocity fastballs. But those heaters ended up headed in different directions.

Jeff Tuel’s was put away in high school, giving him more time to develop as a football player.
