    Living up here in Husky and Coug Central, I signed on to help provide some info on our future opponents.

    Biggest news out of Cougarland is that starting QB Jeff Tuel is out 4-6 weeks (includes Pac-12 season opener vs. the Buffs and roadie vs. the Weasel) with a broken collarbone he received in first series.

    But, the untold story was that Tuel actually sat out the first two series due to the flu while the backup, Marshall Lobbestael, led the Cougars to a 14-0 lead. Granted, it was against Idaho St. (super crappy FCS Big Sky team) but looks like they didn't miss much with Tuel on the bench.

    Cougs won 64-21 sporting their god-awful new uniforms.

    Lobbestael has been there a few years too, I think. So they've got experience there. New question is, does Wulff get a pass on a 3-win year because his quarterback was out? Or does he get a pass anyway because 3 wins has become the high end of their standard?

    Idaho State is so ****** that it's impossible to tell. UNLV is pretty miserable as well, but it'll be a much better indicator. No way Wazzu should lose to them, and coming away with anything less than a 2 TD victory is a sign that things are going to get really ugly in league play yet again for them.
