Hot Cougar Action: Thanksgiving edition

It's Thanksgiving and before you settle in for a giant plate of food, we have an extra serving of morning links.


It's Thanksgiving and while as Washington State fans it may seem like we don't have much to be thankful for this season, I'm sure we can find something.

You can be thankful Eastern Washington dropped that Hail Mary pass and that UNLV is still terrible.

You can be thankful the WSU women's volleyball team won on senior night on Wednesday.

You can be thankful for the Martin Stadium addition and the new football operations building.

After this season, you may can be thankful after tomorrow WSU can't lose a football game for nine months.

In reality, I'm thankful for the fact Cougar fans are gluttons for punishment. No matter how many times a new low is discovered, you all keep coming back. So, here is wishing a happy Thanksgiving from all of ours to all of yours.
