HOT COUGAR ACTION: Saturday Morning Links

It's a light day on Washington State news today, maybe everyone who writes about WSU decided to take Friday off. One person who didn't take Friday off was Bill Moos. Moos was busy Friday at the Night With Cougar Athletics event in Yakima.

Dave Thomas of the Yakima Herald-Republic was there and his story has a couple of interesting tidbits from Moos.

"We've got good morale, we're getting good, quality athletes and we're recognized on a national stage," he said. "Things are better now than it's ever been and it will get better - it has to."

Moos also touched on the Pac-12 television revenue and as you might expect, he has bigger plans for it than patching the existing leaks.

But having those revenues - $22-23 million annually, Moos estimated - is not a cure-all. WSU still needs to improve financial support from its boosters to complement that money, Moos said.

"I have to be careful investing that (TV) money to create new revenue streams," he said. "I have to be able to cover some things (such as scholarship costs), otherwise I'll have to use that TV money that we'd rather have go to improvements."

Moos has talked about booster support for scholarship costs so much since he took over the job that I fear if it ever happened he wouldn't even know what to say.
