Us WSU Cougar Football Fans will always remember the 2008 football season. Why? Well that's a stupid question! Because we beat UW 16-13 in double OT to take bring the Apple Cup back to Pullman. Then they headed down to Cal with their tail between their legs, leading to a 48-7 rout, and making that Husky team the only team in the history of the Pac-10 to go 0-12.
The very next year your beloved Cougars nearly joined that exclusive club. Who knew that when Bo Levi Mitchel dropped back to pass and got picked off by Chima Nwachukwu on the 1st play of overtime, followed by a game-winning 39 yard FG by Nico Grasu (whom I friended on facebook after said apple cup), we would get to mumble the phrase "game-winning" anything against a BCS level opponent for over a year and a half. We finished 2009 1-11. But the point of this story is that the SMU Mustangs were our bitch that season.
We can just forget about the next few seasons of Cougar football. We got ourselves a new ball coach and he is making some changes. I would like to introduce you to a few people:
Gabriel Marks - 6' 0" 175. Runs a 4.5 Ranked #13 WR in the nation, coming out of Venice High in Los Angeles, CA
Robert Lewis - 5' 10' 160lb RB. Runs a 4.5 Ranked #10 RB in the nation, coming out of South East High in South Gate, CA
Khalil Pettway - 6' 4" 205. Ranked #36 LB in the nation, coming out of Culver City High in Culver City, CA
Kache Palacio - 6' 2" 225. Ranked #88 LB in the nation, coming out of Junipero Serra High in Gardena, CA
What do these 4 boys have in common. They were all planning on playing for the Mustangs next year. Mike Leach came to the Palouse and all 4 of them told SMU to suck it. I could also possibly be related to Craig James being a huge douche and running for senate. Which looks like a great idea at this point.
Rumors are starting to swirl about a preeminent Mill Creek doctor behind the formation of this new stable. HCM is still investigating this possible connection. We will have any updates as we come acoss them.
We would also like to remind you that all these guys have given at this point is some good solid oral commitment. Which we all (or at least most of us) know isn't nearly as good as the real thing. Letter of Intent day is Feb, 1.
