Only Living Coug in St. George

After the whole Pac 12 mayhem happened this spring, a friend of mine told me, "you must be one of four WSU fans in Utah that is happy the Utes joined the conference." I know there are many WSU fans in Salt Lake City, but there are probably about four in Southern Utah. See, I graduated in May and got a job in St. George, Utah. My exodus from Pullman was sad, and I feel like I took for granted the fact that I could walk to Beasley and Martin Stadium and that I could tune to 104.3 to hear every cougar game.

In order to maintain my cougar sports addiction here in Mormon Cougar Country, I would have to get a crazy sports package on my TV (which basically means I need to purchase a bunch of channels just to get FSN NW) or I would have to hope and pray that the Cougs make the Las Vegas bowl some time in the next few years. Of course, I could always pay $10 a month to hear streaming radio from Cougars All-Access (which really doesn't seem worth it), or look at the ESPN Gametracker (which always seems to stop checking the game with a minute to go-further proof that ESPN doesn't care about Coug Fans). Basically, CougCenter is my only hope to get up to date, thoughtful analysis on WSU sports.  Thank you, CougCenter!

So, yes, I am happy that I will likely get to see the Utah v. WSU game and other Pac-10 games in the future at some local eating establishments (notice I did not say Pub. . .this Utah after all). However, I have always been grateful to CougCenter for posting links to free video or audio multimedia coverage of the games. Now more than ever, I am depending on those links because I frankly can't afford the Cougar All-Access ($120 a year for. . .radio). If any WSU fans exist in St. George or Las Vegas, I would love to know how you catch the games. Maybe I will buy you a six-pack of Polygamy Porter if I can crash on your couch for a few hours to catch a game. Beyond that, how do Cougs outside of the Northwest catch games on a tight budget? I need to know. I got a job, but that  doesn't mean I have a ton of money to throw around. Also, I have to see a winning season of Cougar football because I never saw one while I was a student (small tear rolls down cheek and quickly evaporates in the 110 degree heat).

Go Cougs!
