Since We've Been Gone

Welcome back Wazzu Sports fans! It’s been a long time coming but after much consideration we’ve decided to get this thing going again. Since we’ve been gone a lot, and I do mean A LOT, has happened in the world of Cougar athletics.

The 2010 Cougar Football season came and went, and though the young Cougs struggled to a 2-10 record, Coug Nation saw the signs of progress that Paul Wulff and Co. have been talking about. Sure there was the embarrassment of fumbling the first handoff of the year (shaking head) as well as beating FCS juggernaut Montana State by one (banging head on desk), but the Cougs were competitive in almost every game, and even beat Oregon State!

There is hope for the future, Coug fans. As much as I’ve bashed Paul Wulff, I have to give credit where credit is due. He has this team believing the future is bright. The proof is how his players respond to him, week-in and week-out, with nothing to play for. For those reasons, and our relatively weak OOC schedule, I’m giddy like a school boy for September 3rd, 2011.
The 2010-11 Men’s Basketball season started out with hard fought wins over Gonzaga, Mississippi State and Baylor. Three games later the Cougs came crashing back to Earth when they struggled against Butler, UCLA and USC. Perhaps the Cougs were tired after almost three weeks on the road... Or maybe teams have figured out what it takes to beat WSU... But fear not, Coug fans, for there’s absolutely no way this team will fall like it did last year (at least for my sanity, I sure as hell hope not).Perhaps the biggest story since we last posted (and come to think of it was the last story we actually posted) is the addition of Colorado and Utah to the Pac-10. Aside from a Pac-10 title for the Cougs, this is the best thing that could’ve happened over the course of the year. The influx of cash headed toward the conference will give the WSU athletic department the necessary funds to make potential recruits realize what we as Coug fans already know -- that Pullman is the greatest place on Earth.

With all that said, I’d like to welcome everyone back to the blog. We’re still in the process of getting the band back together, but once we do it should be good times ahead for everyone. Happy New Year, fellow Cougs, and as always, Go Cougs!!
