It's been a bit of a weird 24 hours for fans of the Washington State Cougars. The Apple Cup is in the rear-view mirror, but shortly after the game ended the attention turned to Paul Wulff and his job status. A report from Bud Withers of the Seattle Times indicated Wulff would be fired, and the rumors began to swirl just minutes after the game.
All seemed to be somewhat normal on the WSU side of the coin. Plans were made for Wulff's typical Sunday press conference, which would be used to wrap the season. Remember, it was last year that Moos announced Wulff would be back at the end of season press conference on the day after the Apple Cup.
Yet 5 p.m. rolled around and Wulff was still missing in action. Well, he wasn't missing: He was still in a lengthy meeting with Moos. As a result, the press conference was canceled.
Just a short time ago, Moos released a statement, which was passed along by Bill Stevens.
"Paul and I met for an hour and a half this afternoon so I could hear his assessment of the season and where he would like to take the program from here. Our discussions will be ongoing."
I don't have a clue what it means, so I'll leave it at that. You can take it as a sign Moos hasn't made up his mind or that he has and is just waiting for the right time to announce it. Depending on your view, the statement can be spun any which way.
And so we wait.
