HOT COUGAR ACTION: Cougar Football Saturday Pregame Links

Kickoff is quickly approaching and there is no time to waste so it's straight to the links.

Cougars don't make radical changes - - Sept. 9, 2011
PULLMAN – You would think losing your starting quarterback to a broken collarbone would present a challenge in a team’s preparation for its next game.

Cougars Eager To Establish Win Streak - SWX Right Now-Sports for Spokane, CdA, Tri-Cities, WA
After starting the season 1-0 for the first time in six years, Washington State – and Cougar fans for that matter – hope they can sustain a winning streak. Going 2-0 is possible if not likely.

PULLMAN – It was a long, cold winter in the Palouse, and Washington State tight end Andrei Lintz had plenty of time to look in the mirror.

Pac-12 Predictions - WSU Blog articles -
UNLV @ WSU - 2:00pm The Rebels might have gotten pushed around pretty good by Wisconsin last weekend, but honestly, a lot of teams would get pushed around by this year's Badger team. The Cougs are 14-point favorites and UNLV has been historically bad, but then again, the Cougs have been historically bad as well. Still, the Cougs are a bit ahead of their rebuild than the Rebels are and they REALLY should handle this team. Please Cougs. Handle this team. Please please please please. Cougs 34, Runnin' Rebs 17

Cougars | Scouting report: Washington State vs. UNLV | Seattle Times Newspaper
The setup: UNLV, 2-11 last year and a 51-17 loser at Wisconsin in its opener, faces a WSU team that won its opener handily over Idaho State but lost QB Jeff Tuel to a broken clavicle.

The silver lining from UNLV's 51-17 season-opening loss at Wisconsin last Thursday night was pretty easy to identify.

A memory from WSU - SportsLink - - Sept. 9, 2011

Maybe I am getting old enough to retire. After all, something happened yesterday afternoon that, as soon as it was done, I said to myself, "hey, you've got to blog about that." Then it disappeared, only to reappear in my head this afternoon when I walked past the same spot in the Bohler Gym hall. And I said to myself, "hey dumb&%#, you forgot to blog about that." So now I am. Read on.

WSU has one more day to prep for UNLV - SportsLink - - Sept. 9, 2011

Three of the captains, picked by the coaching staff, are not unexpected, with seniors Jared Karstetter, Alex Hoffman-Ellis and B.J. Guerra. The fourth is a little bit of a surprise: sophomore C.J. Mizell. If anything better illustrates Mizell's turnaround this season, I don't know what it is. Here's a kid who almost threw away an opportunity to be a Pac-12 football player due to a lack of work ethic. A year later he's a captain, designated by his coaches as a leader of his team. I've tried to pass along the difference at practice, but just explaining how he's working doesn't tell the story as well as this designation.
