HOT COUGAR ACTION: Cougar Football Saturday Pregame Links

If you're reading this post looking for an update on Jeff Tuel, you can stop now. While it would be highly unlikely for that news to be available at 6 a.m., it is even less likely it would be available as I write this at 12:47 a.m.

If you're looking for a way to kill some time until the game starts, I present two videos. First, a short recap of the WSU men's and women's basketball teams Midnight Mayhem event. 

The second, 2010 Jeff Tuel highlights, just in case you forgot.
