HOT COUGAR ACTION: Sunday Morning Links

With the first Saturday of college football in the book, it's time to start looking forward to the second week. Washington State players have already moved on from their season opening loss.

"It's over, done with, and nothing can be changed," Jacobson said. "Right now, we're 0-1, and that's it. There's nothing we can do about it."

There was a lot of talk after the game about WSU's mental toughness. Mike Leach said the team was fragile and easily disappointed, something they needed to improve. They will get another shot this weekend and playing in front of a home crowd in the remodeled Martin Stadium should help.

If not, the new remodel might not last long because Sherwood will probably riot and burn the whole place down if WSU loses.
