The CougCenter Hour, Episode 12: ASU in town for Halloween; Jeff Benedict joins us

It's finally here: the Halloween night game in Pullman. Last time ASU came into Pullman, Connor Halliday threw for nearly 500 yards as a freshman.

Man, we've got a hell of a shot lined up for this week. Author of "The System: The Glory and Scandal of Big Time College Football" Jeff Benedict will join us at 7:12. He spoke about Mike Leach's firing at Texas Tech and subsequent hiring at WSU in the book at length. He'll also be on campus this week for a few signings with Leach and Bill Moos. He has some incredible insights into Leach's termination at Tech so this is 20 minutes of must listen radio.

Brad Denny from House of Sparky will have a heck of an act to follow but he'll do just that at 7:35. Brad will help us preview ASU and what they're bringing up to the Palouse this Thursday.

As always, we want your questions for Ask Michael Anything. Email us at or, the preferred method, go on Twitter and use the #cougcenterhour hashtag.
