HOT COUGAR ACTION: Cougar Football Saturday Morning Links and Open Thread

The good news, another Cougar football Saturday has arrived. The bad news, the game is still 13.5 hours away. The importance of this game has been a hot topic of discussion throughout the week. At this point, I don't have much to add, other than the fact whenever I feel good about a game it's a guaranteed blowout loss and I currently feel terrible about this game.

Consider this an open thread to discuss the day games or anything else WSU or college sports related.
