Open Game Thread: No. 6 USC at WSU

What can I say?

We're bad.

USC is not.

The only chance we have to win this game is if Mark Sanchez throws four interceptions in the first half ...

Oh. Never mind.

We don't have a chance today. Honestly all I'm really hoping for is that we make it out of today with no more injuries so that we've got a shot to continue to improve and maybe surprise someone like Stanford or Arizona.

With yet another offensive line combination likely to start today, let's pray that Kevin Lopina is able to walk after the end of the game. Fans of other teams visiting the site today will probably think that's supposed to be a joke; you Coug fans will understand that it's not.

But even though we have no shot against the Trojans, you're just like me and you're going to watch anyway. And since you're going to watch, you might as well talk about it.

Grady: Greetings from overcast Pullman, Washington. I will be at the slaughter football game today, banking on the off chance the Cougs somehow convert the one percent chance they have of winning this game.

It probably won't happen, but hey, we're tied 0-0 right now! Go Cougs!
