HOT COUGAR ACTION: Thursday Morning Links

With Washington State sports news beginning to die down as we approach the summer months, we're going to start incorporating a few different things into the morning link posts. One thing you will start to see from time to time is a topic of the day. Basically, an off topic fan post, just with a shorter life cycle.

Some of the topics will be related to Cougar sports, others will be random topics or expanded email conversations. That basically means when Kyle and I trade 10 emails about condiments of choice, I'll share the highlights then open it up to all of you for further input. If the recent posts have taught me anything, it's that you all like to discus, so this seems like a natural fit.

Today's topic is a conversation I've had a few times and one I'm still not sure how to answer. In college sports football is king, but few events can match the NCAA Tournament. The debate I've had is if you could only choose one, would you want to see your team play in a major bowl game or the Final Four. To make it WSU specific, would you rather watch the Cougar football team play in the Rose Bowl or the Cougar basketball team play in the Final Four of the NCAA Tournament?

All of which convinced Washington State University's baseball program to sign McDowell, the leader of what Costa called "the best pitching staff I've had at Mount Vernon." "I think Chris is going to be very good as WSU," said Costa, whose Bulldogs gained their eighth shutout. Mount Vernon has allowed runs in only three innings -- one inning in each of its non-shutout victories.
