Jeff Nusser

Co-founder and Managing Editor

CougCenter responsibilities include: Planning and coordinating content; managing the website; writing.

I'm a freelance journalist who co-founded CougCenter in August 2008 because writing about WSU athletics is my passion.

Past employers include The (Tacoma, Wash.) News Tribune and CBSSports.com, and my work has appeared at ESPN.com Insider, Basketball Prospectus, Lindy's college sports annuals and Horizon Air Magazine. I own the currently-on-hiatus Cougar Sports Weekly, an email newsletter that real people actually paid real money to receive.

Helping teenagers master the English language constitutes the bulk of my day job.

Dish subscribers: You can't watch WSU vs. Rutgers on FS1 next week

Apparently, Fox Sports 1 and Dish are locked in some sort of dispute that I wasn't even aware of that means the satellite provider won't be broadcasting WSU vs. Rutgers. At least, that's the current plan. There's always a chance this gets worked out, but websites such as this don't give a lot of hope. EDIT: They worked it out.

Guess we aren't the only ones who need Groupon

I thought needing to use Groupon to sell tickets in Seattle to a WSU game was pretty embarrassing. I stand corrected. Apparently UW fans are having a hard time getting excited for Eastern Washington and Georgia State now that their shiny new stadium is a whole year old. (h/t @425CougFan)
