HOT COUGAR ACTION: Finally Answering The Crimson Endzone Question

Over the last several years I've developed the theory that it's impossible to discuss Martin Stadium and not have the conversation turn to the need for crimson endzones.

Basically, everyone and their mother wants crimson endzones in Martin Stadium and while there have been rumors they are on the way, it's never happened. That appears likely to change next season, assuming you believe Bill Moos.

Q: What are the chances of having crimson-painted end zones next year?

Moos: The plan is indeed to install crimson FieldTurf in the end zones. We held off due to the prospect of construction of the football-operations building, which would encroach onto the west end zone.

That comment comes from the live chat Moos held on the Seattle Times' website on Wednesday. Many of the topics discussed were similar to what Moos covered in his radio appearance on KJR which Jeff Collier recapped.

Preview: Colorado Buffaloes at Washington State Cougars -
Shining Stars: Washington State: QB Marquess Wilson. Wilson had been itching to get the ball this season and he finally got it against UNLV last Friday to the tune of 110 yards and two touchdowns. The junior WR should shine against a Colorado pass defense that ranks 11th in the Pac-12.

Pac-12 football ratings: How bad is Colorado? So bad that … | College Hotline
The worst Pac-12 team of the century is, at this very moment, a three-way race: * The ’08 Huskies were winless in league play and close to victory only twice. * The ’08 Cougars managed one conference victory but gave up 58+ points six times. * The ’09 Cougars were winless in league, every loss by at least 13 points. But non-conference results are any indication, that terrible trio could soon have company. Colorado, come on down!

Colorado Buffaloes Vs. Washington State Cougars: Key Match-Ups - The Ralphie Report
Ladies and Gents, your Colorado Buffaloes travel to Pullman, Washington to take on some Cougars coached by a pirate. There is a slight chance that the Buffs are historically bad.

"Pirate of Pullman" Mike Leach a perfect fit at Washington State - The Denver Post
For a guy who spent the past two years in Key West, Fla., and took a barge through France during his many forays to Europe, Mike Leach seems like the last guy who would want to wind up in Pullman, Wash.

Brooks: Henderson Eyes Another Chance vs. Cougars - - Official Athletics Web site of the University of Colorado
Try as he might, the Colorado cornerback has had a difficult time erasing the memory of CU's 31-27 last-minute loss last season to Washington State at Folsom Field. If he's sufficiently recovered from an ankle sprain that has sidelined him for the past two games, Henderson is viewing a rematch against the Cougars and receiver Marquess Wilson as therapeutic. "I really want to get back out there - especially after last season and the mistake I made at the end of the game," Henderson said.

Could the WSU-Oregon game outdraw UW-Stanford? | Husky Football Blog | The Seattle Times

The Stanford game comes two days before Washington State plays its annual game in Seattle, this year against Oregon. I heard WSU athletic director Bill Moos say today that about 55,000 tickets have been sold for that game, which raises the possibility that a game between UW's two biggest rivals could sell more tickets than UW itself will two nights prior.
