HOT COUGAR ACTION: Thursday Morning Links

If you heard the sound of a zipper and a belt buckle yesterday, that was probably Kyle putting on pants after hearing the latest news on Rahmel Dockery. In case you missed it yesterday, here is the tweet from's Jake Worthen.

WSU freshman Rahmel Dockery has been denied by the NCAA Clearinghouse however WSU is appealing the decision...Thu Sep 29 02:08:05 via web

It's no secret a lot of us were high on Dockery and were looking forward to watching him play, but at this point I don't care how this impacts the football team, I just feel bad for Dockery. From all accounts, he worked hard during the summer to get eligible. Unlike Alex Mitchell, WSU was confident Dockery would be approved. He spent the last two months in Pullman stuck in a holding pattern, only to now find out he isn't eligible. Just brutal, especially if this tweet from Ian Furness is true and it's a result of a simple paperwork error.

@JakeWorthen They should appeal. Based on a paperwork mistake made by someone asleep at the wheel at the school district!Thu Sep 29 02:31:12 via web

Hopefully, this get's cleared up on the appeal or at least Dockery is able to complete whatever requirement is needed to be eligible next season.
