Should be an interesting game this weekend. I am not lying and most Cougs will say the same that we would feel one heck of a lot more confident if Jeff Tuel was our starting QB this weekend. The loss of his arm strength and ability to run just killed us in the SDSU game, ugh. The back up turned it over 4 times, 2 picks and 2 fumbles all deep in SDSU territory, however he still tossed for 361 yards, so at least we have that going for us. :thumbsup: Still sick about that loss. We were up 24-14 and had the dagger out ready to put it away as they had not stopped us all day long, so what do we do? Call an all out block and rough the punter. It all fell apart after that with 3 turnovers in about 8 min. We feel your pain as the Hawkins situation feels a ton like when Wulff arrived. Not alot of deep talent, lots of guys out of shape and it lead to tons of penalties and mental mistakes in every aspect of the game. We spent 3 years learning how to start games as well as not until the Oregon State game last year did the kids come out on fire and they have been able to do that since. Even in the loss agaist SDSU the first play went for an 80 yard passing TD. As far as WSU, we are wayyyyyyyyyyy better than the last 3 seasons, but still very, very, very young. That is how down it was here. We are not world beaters yet, but have the kids that can play at the PAC 12 level now, so that is a good feeling. The defense will only play 3 seniors in its two deep. The offense has 4 SR lineman, but the starting center did not play last week due to an ankle injury. Hoping he is back after the bye week as the back up got worked pretty good. WSU strength are their skill kids. Wulff and staff have done an amazing job upgrading them with size and speed. The reciever recieving core, it is very good and very deep. They will play 9 kids with the majority of them being 6' 2' - 6' 4". The sophmore Wilson is the real deal, his 2010 highlights are all the explnation anyone needs. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7rpLDbceHok I have no doubt this kid will be playing on Sundays, he that talented. The running backs are small like your guy, 171, 175, 199, but one at 223. Glavin is a copy of Speedy, as you call him. He is like hitting a gnat and is tough to see behind 6' 6" lineman. Going to be a good game this weekend. Do not have read on the final im this one at all. If WSU plays like they did against UNLV(even though their are flat terrible) WSU will be tough to beat. I don't care how bad a team is, because they could have dropped 120 on them. If WSU does not turn it over they have good chance to win. Agains SDSU it just felt like when it got tough the kids did not respond well at all and hopefully these young kids took that as a learing experience. I wish Tuel could get the magical water blessed by a Tibetan Monk from Bobby and play on Saturday. He is a great QB and a game changer with his big arm and ability to run. Any other questions let them fly.
