But two "meh" finishes are a step forward for Wazzu, and you do have to take notice of the fact that, without starting quarterback Jeff Tuel, the Cougars outgained the sad Rebels, 610-158. They gained 35 percent more yardage than what Vanderbilt and Connecticut combined for in their battle.Bill C. is back with another Numerical.
