HOT COUGAR ACTION: Tuesday Morning Links

You know it's a light day on links when I'm linking to a story about license plates and one about a player who thought about committing, but didn't commit. I'm a little disappointed we didn't get a full play-by-play with details of the several times Lewis nearly committed. I imagine it might have gone something like this.

FRI, 12:23 p.m. - Lewis lands at the airport and is met by inside receivers coach Eric Morris who compliments his hat. Lewis likes the idea of playing for a coach with good taste in hats, nearly commits.

FRI, 2:46 p.m. - The group stops for lunch at Cougar Country, Lewis orders a peanut butter milkshake which he calls, "the bomb." He likes it so much, he nearly commits.

FRI, 11:35 p.m. - A few current players take Lewis on a tour of campus. They stop by several student housing complexes to introduce Lewis to some of his potential future classmates. A good time is had by all, Lewis nearly commits.

SAT, 1:17 p.m. - Lewis meets Coach Leach for the first time on the visit. Leach explains the importance of taking frequent showers in order to be a better wide receiver. Removing the dirt allows a player to become more aerodynamic. The idea of playing for a coach with such attention to detail is intriguing, he nearly commits.

SAT, 4:11 p.m. - The entire football team engages in a game of capture the flag in a snowy Martin Stadium. Lewis scores twice and drills Gino Simone in the ear with a snowball, it turns red and everyone laughs. Lewis nearly commits.

SUN, 10:51 a.m. - Chief of staff Dave Emerick drops Lewis off at the airport. The two share a personalized handshake before Lewis departs. Lewis appreciates the close bond, nearly commits.

10. Washington State: The Cougars have had a tough run in the schedule lately, playing three straight league road games since Jan. 5. All three ended in losses, including this week's 10-point defeat at Washington. In other words, the Cougars might not be quite this bad. But at some point, you have to compete on the road, and Washington State hasn't been able to do that lately.
