Hot Cougar Action: Ken Bone's seat no longer hot

Ken Bone took that old crummy hot seat to the swap meet and traded it for some pogs. Then he secretly stole Mike Leach's seat which was much more comfortable.

And to think I linked to all of those "Ken Bone is on the hot seat" articles and all I got was this lousy t-shirt. Well, actually I didn't get a t-shirt, but I did link to a bunch of stuff which turned out to be wasted Internet space.

In case you didn't hear, all indications point to Ken Bone keeping his job for at least another year. As Jeff pointed out multiple times recently, this was the likely outcome all along due to a plethora of reasons. That, however, didn't stop from plenty of discussion and speculation over recent months.

In the end, it probably turned out to be a good thing for Bone as a hot seat would come in really handy during a Pullman winter.
