HOT COUGAR ACTION: Monday Morning Trivia

Lost in all of the talk of coaching hot seats, medical hardships, radio rants and who is or is not a 'nog, has been the fact WSU is averaging 33.3 PPG. I remember a time in the last two seasons where a friend and I celebrated the fact the team scored 20 points in a game. That got me to thinking, which leads to today's three part CCMMTQ.

Q: Since 1917, how many seasons has WSU averaged 30.0 or more points per game? Not including 2011.

Q: Since 1917, what is WSU's highest single season points per game average?

Q: Since 1917, what is WSU's lowest single season points per game average?

Each question will be worth 10 points. If there is no correct answer by 3 p.m, the closest guess will receive the points. If you get all three answers exactly correct you will receive eleventy billion negative points for being a cheater.

There’s something about the Oregon Ducks that brings out the fight in Washington State. For the second consecutive year the Cougars scrapped with a highly touted Oregon team and afterward talked about what could have been. WSU coach Paul Wulff, whose team fell to 3-5 overall and 1-4 in Pac-12 play, even brought up the "M" word after his team’s 43-28 loss Saturday. "Moral victories ... those things don’t matter to us anymore," he said. "We’re better than that. We want to win games."
