HOT COUGAR ACTION: Trivia And Links

The Monday morning trivia question has been a staple of this morning link post for as long as I can remember. I might have poor long-term memory or the MMTQ might be on the same tradition level as apple pie and the fourth of July.

So when I forgot to post the MMTQ with yesterday's links, I might as well have spit on the Liberty Bell. Either that, or I disappointed the four of you who read the question. Regardless, today we have a special edition of the MMTQ, the Tuesday morning makeup trivia question!

If you've watched a WSU game during the Paul Wulff era, the chances are the other team scored a lot of points. While the defense has struggled, the Cougars have also given up 12 special teams and defensive touchdowns.To make matters worse, WSU has scored only five defensive or special teams touchdowns under Wulff.

That leads us to today's question. Name the five players to score defensive or special teams touchdowns since the start of the 2008 season. Bonus points if you can name the opponents they were scored against.

WSU prepares for Pac-12 play - SportsLink - Spokesman.com - Sept. 26, 2011
Welcome to Pac-12 football. The first week of conference play began last night in Pullman under a few dark clouds. No, we're speaking accurately, not metaphorically. It rained all through practice. Washington State takes today off then hits the field again Tuesday afternoon in preparation for Saturday's conference opener at Colorado. Read on.

WSU at Colorado - Spokesman.com - Sept. 27, 2011
What it means for WSU: This is it for the Cougars. The start of a nine-game conference schedule that should get progressively tougher as it wears on. As the betting line shows, this is a toss-up game, giving WSU a chance to prove it has improved over last year’s model. There are danger signs, though. The Cougars won’t go into the game with a full compliment of weapons, as quarterback Jeff Tuel will still not be available. And the Buffaloes have been relatively stout on defense, yielding 323 yards a game, 34th in the nation.

CU Buffs prepare to deal with Washington State passing attack - The Denver Post
BOULDER — This is not the week to be running thin in the secondary. Washington State (2-1), ranked fourth among FBS schools by averaging 380 passing yards a game and sixth in total offense at 539.7, comes in as Colorado's Pac-12 opener Saturday. Starting cornerback Parker Orms is out with a leg injury. Third-teamer Paul Vigo is also out, with a pulled hamstring.

Scout.com: Eyes on Shelton but give him time, says Bone
ON A TEAM thirsting for help in the post, D.J. Shelton figures to be the center of attention at Washington State when basketball practices kick off next month. At 6-foot-10, 230 pounds, Shelton fills a glaring need inside for WSU. He will give the Cougars some athleticism in the post, and "we definitely need that," says Ken Bone. But the head coach is cautious.
