The state of Texas has not been kind to the Washington State men's basketball team. A few days after dropping the season opener to UTEP, the Cougars were blown out on the road against TCU, losing 81-54. WSU got off to a rough start, going down 14-0 to start and never recovered.
If you missed the game, here is an idea of how it went through Twitter accounts of some CougCenter authors.
Turnover and foul for an and-1 on the opening possession. Then the color guy's mic peaks. Great start.— Michael Preston (@RM_Preston) November 18, 2014
Two possessions, two turnovers and two fouls. #TheProcess— Michael Preston (@RM_Preston) November 18, 2014
What is it about WSU basketball coaches starting players inferior to guys on the bench?— Jeff Nusser (@NussCoug) November 18, 2014
At least I get to listen to TCU homers as they destroy WSU.— Craig Powers (@TheCraigPowers) November 18, 2014
46 minutes into the season, I think we're all done with #theprocess— Kyle Sherwood (@BigWoodWSU) November 18, 2014
Air ball from Ike. Three fouls, two turnovers, two missed free throws and in a gym that belongs to the Fort Worth school district.— Michael Preston (@RM_Preston) November 18, 2014
TCU only shot 20% in that possession! They also took enough shots to shoot 20% in one possession!— Kyle Sherwood (@BigWoodWSU) November 18, 2014
The Cougars look so much worse than I imagined.— Jeff Nusser (@NussCoug) November 18, 2014
Are bucket hats a thing in Ft. Worth?— Kyle Sherwood (@BigWoodWSU) November 18, 2014
TCU didn't win a conference game this year and we're down by 33.— Michael Preston (@RM_Preston) November 18, 2014
Getting blown out by a bad team woooooo Ernie Kent era off to a fast start.— Craig Powers (@TheCraigPowers) November 18, 2014
Is there an awful hybrid sport we can create to determine who would win between 2014-15 mens basketball and 2008 football?— Kyle Sherwood (@BigWoodWSU) November 18, 2014
But really though, what was up with those bucket hats?

Cougars ramp up the competition on practice field - Spokesman.com - Nov. 17, 2014
At some point in recent weeks, some of Washington State’s football defensive regulars started comparing practice statistics.
The Cougars want to keep the good vibes going. Washington State is playing carefree football since USC eliminated it from bowl consideration and the Cougars appear to have unearthed a very good quarterback in redshirt freshman Luke Falk. The former backup has played well but has yet to face a defensive test like he will this weekend in the desert against an angry ASU team. If he plays as well against the Sun Devils as he did against USC and Oregon State, the Cougars will have really found a gem in their former walk-on quarterback.
