HOT COUGAR ACTION: Monday Morning Trivia

After a long summer hiatus, the CougCenter Monday Morning Trivia Contest is back for another year. SoCalCoug is the reigning CCMMTC champion, so the pressure is on him to repeat.

Before we get to today's question, a quick reminder on how this works. Every Monday, through basketball season, I'll post a trivia question. Everyone gets one guess, unless I otherwise note in the comments. Looking up answers in the media guide or anywhere is against the rules. If you do so, you'll be banned (not really, but don't do it). I'll list the point value of each question and then award full or partial points to the first correct answer(s).

We'll start off the 2012-13 CCMMTC with two questions. Each will be worth 10 points with partial points available on the second question.

Q1: Mike Leach is set to face his alma mater on Thursday. Who was the last WSU head coach to face the school he attended as an undergraduate?

Q2: Name the current WSU football player(s) whose father also played football for WSU.
