Happy Cougar football day to all!
Apologies for my lack of an opponent preview this week. Montana State is not represented on Football Outsiders or College Football Stats, so I was like a lost puppy. Although, Grady did do a fine job previewing the game in his weekly "Tailgater's Guide," so I will refer you to that.
This game is just as important as our season opener, but for different reasons. Cougar fans are desperate for a winning result, and this is our best opportunity. This is the only chance all year that the Cougs will play a team in which they will possess an athletic advantage. If they execute, it can be a solid confidence builder.
Losing is hard and it can wear on any person. This young Cougar team needs to taste a win, a big win. They need to feel success. Let's hope it happens today.
