HOT COUGAR ACTION: WSU Coaches Using New Recruiting Tactic

If you've followed WSU football the last three weeks, or anytime in recent memory, you probably knew the team has an issue with kickoffs. Andrew Furney, all 5-10 232 pounds of him, can boot 50-yard field goals but can't seem to put a kickoff inside the 10-yard line. 

The coaches have searched for a solution, but appear to have taken their search to a new digital level. Hey. if you can find an offensive lineman in Germany, why not a kickoff specialist on Craiglist?

If any of you didn't get the joke, the above image is not real. Please do not show up to the Rogers practice fields for kicker tryouts.

Lobbestael passed for 368 yards and three touchdowns in a 42-24 loss to San Diego State, but in the final quarter, he lost a fumble and threw two interceptions. Two of the turnovers occurred in San Diego State's end of the field, and all three led to Aztecs touchdowns.
