HOT COUGAR ACTION: Day Two Of Paul Wulff Watch

Yesterday, most of us expected Bill Moos to announce Paul Wulff's fate. Instead, we found out the two talked for 90 minutes and talks would be "ongoing." Thus Paul Wulff Watch 2011 was born. Ongoing talks could, in theory, last for days or even weeks, but I would expect a resolution sometime today. Whether Wulff stays, or goes, a decision has to be made and the sooner the better.

Now that the minor stories are out of the way, it's time to get to the important stuff, Monday morning trivia. Today's trivia questions are inspired by the utterly ridiculous season Marquess Wilson just finished. Each question will be worth ten points.

Wilson's record breaking season included setting the WSU single season record for receptions and receiving yards. Who was the last offensive player to set two single season records in the same year?

Wilson now has 2,394 receiving yards in 24 games played good for a per game average of 99.75, the highest of any WSU receiver since 1970. Which WSU receiver has the second highest YPG average since 1970?

In setting the single season receiving yard record, Wilson also set the record for receiving yards by a sophomore. Who previously held the sophomore receiving yards record?
