I’m happy to say that my prediction from last week was wrong. It must have been my rooting for the Cougs that turned the tide. WSU were able to win in overtime against a terrible SMU team that out gained them 504-276. How do you give up 504 yards to SMU!? But at least a national crisis of was averted. There wasn’t any more drinking or daubchery than what normally takes place in Pullman during a cougar game. And the Cougs got their win for the season. Yay.
This week, however, I don’t think they will be so lucky. They travel to southern California to take on a pissed-off USC team. I’m not sure if you heard about it, but last week USC lost to the Dawgs. Somehow, the Cougs are 8-56-4 against the Trojans. That’s a .143 winning percentage, folks. They shouldn’t even play this game. USC is getting back QB Matt Barkley and most likely All-American saftey Taylor Mays as well, while the Cougs have lost leading rusher James Montgomery for the season. I’m beginning to think that this just isn’t the Cougs year. But what year is ever the year of the Coug? 42-3 USC.
