It’s finally that time of year where long after our baseball team has had any chance of making the playoffs (early June) that we all settle in for the whirlwind of adventure that is College Football. Once again the Mighty Cougars of Washington State, as of today, are undefeated and I don’t see that changing before Friday. The entire sports media is abuzz over the 0-0 Cougs who have been ranked as high as 76th! in the preseason. Now unless I am misunderstanding the concept of “abuzz,” hopes are high and expectations are even higher for the Palouse Warriors. A stellar off season that saw Lee Corso’s BFF, Kirk Herbstreit , declare Brandon Gibson his #2 receiver in the nation also saw Defensive Tackle Andy Roof expelled from school (which is actually incredibly difficult considering it is WAZZU) and field general Gary Rogers heroically saying players should put school on the back burner and concentrate on football. I see nothing wrong with that statement but methinks some academic types may take issue with one of their high profile student\athletes downplaying the importance of the student part…….Nerds. So with hopes high and a nickel in my pocket it is time for me to change from unbiased lover of sports to tunnel-visioned Cougar fan lunatic……. So I guess this is goodbye until December. That is unless we make a BCS Bowl game……which is pretty much a lock….at which point there will be limited, and I stress the limited part, LIMTIED non-cougar talk until the end of January as I have to allow myself at least a month to bask in the inevitable national championship glory I will most certainly be soaking in. Seriously though check stuffandthingsblog.wordpress.com often as we here at Stuff and Things are ramping up for a nice little run at being somewhat consistent with our postings……Go Cougs.
