HOT COUGAR ACTION: Tuesday Morning Links

Monday was a busy day for Washington State news. Mike Leach joined Reddit for an AMA, Bill Moos announced a new broadcast team and station and Cody O'Connell became the second commit of the 2013 football recruiting class.

Despite all of the news yesterday, there isn't much new information to report today. Kyle had it all covered with the rare back-to-back-to-back posts. Who knew the he had that in him, obviously he's been sandbagging on us this entire time.

For some more insight into the new broadcast arrangement, Christian Caple caught up with Bud Nameck. Bud talked about how he'll fit into his new role.

I don’t think you can do an entire broadasct with stats, but I think they’re worth mentioning. I’ll keep a play-by-play on my pad of paper so I can keep track of how the cougs are doing on third down. Maybe Jeff Tuel has completed five straight pases, those sort of things.

I'm looking forward to the day when Bud quotes Marquess Wilson's yards per target on air.
