The confidence level of any sports fanbase is outrageously delicate. For one, fans are always more confident than they probably should be. The confidence level also changes drastically based on the results of the previous week. Following the Idaho game, WSU fans were sky high. The collective confidence level took a hit with the Stanford game, but how much?
Our frenenemies over at California Golden Blogs asked the question of how confident Cal fans were the Bears would beat WSU. As you'd probably expect, Cal fans are predicting a Bears win. I'm going to steal CGB's idea and do a pulse check on the current confidence level of WSU fans.
So, how confident are you in the Cougars' chances on Saturday?

Mike Leach and his staff have pulled together a solid group of talent, but the 14-man class isn't going to make national headlines. The class ranks just 47th in the country, though it looks better within the context of the Pac-12, where it ranks fifth. The Cougars have yet to earn a verbal from any player rated higher than three stars.
