HOT COUGAR ACTION: WSU Continues Preparation For the Sterk Bowl

So this doesn't have anything to do with WSU, but I can't stop watching it. There's a cat in the house. Cat in the house? Yeah I said there's a cat in the house.

First Nuss jinxed Tuel, now Brian jinxes Pole. Craig will never write about Reid Forrest again just as a precaution.

Summarizing WSU's Tuesday - SportsLink - - Sept. 13, 2011
Early reports have Pole, hit on the side of the knee in a pileup, suffering a sprained medial collateral ligament, which will sideline him at least for tomorrow. Could it keep him out of Saturday's game? Maybe, but it's not certain.

New Pac-12 teams approach rivalry week - - Sept. 13, 2011
PULLMAN – It’s rivalry week in the Pac-12. At least for two schools. The two newest schools. Although Utah and Colorado joined the conference together this season, and are paired in a lot of ways, including scheduling in some sports, they aren’t natural rivals. Neighbors, maybe, but not rivals.

PULLMAN — The Washington State Cougars are delighted to be 2-0 for the first time since 2005, but players and coaches acknowledge that WSU's early schedule has been soft as cotton.

Cougars eye corner-turn at San Diego State - College Football Nation Blog - ESPN
It would be easy to wildly extrapolate program transformation at Washington State based on a 2-0 start. Sure, the competition was terrible, but the Cougars asserted complete dominance on both sides of the ball.

Washington State is no longer a bottom-feeder - NCAA Football - Sporting News
Rising Washington State. That’s right, the Cougars. The team that has spent the last three seasons at the bottom of the conference is 2-0 for the first time since 2005. So FCS Idaho State and UNLV barely show more resistance than a light breeze. When you’ve won five games the previous three seasons, who cares how you get victories? Wazzu is four games from qualifying for a bowl, and if you’ve seen the state of the Pac-12, that may not be too difficult.

Pac-14 football: Splitting into seven-team divisions (if it comes to that) | College Hotline
Because I’ve been asked about it many times in the past few weeks … and because it’s within the realm of possibility … let’s say the league adds only the Oklahoma schools for 2012 and exists as a 14-team conference. How would the divisions be split?

Pac-12 Confidential | Realignment: Thoughts, guesses, ruminations | Seattle Times Newspaper
As I figure it, the future of the Pac-12 depends on which path the league presidents choose: (1) The old, conservative, we're-above-that-sort-of-thing approach; or (2) the new, hip, cutting-edge, not-your-father's-conference-anymore route.
