Being a Coug means to be part of family - never forget that

Just a heartfelt message from CougCenter.

James Snook-USA TODAY Sports

Ask anyone who has ever went to school at Washington State University.

There is nothing in the world quite like it. Being a Coug means many things. It means to align your pride with the best logo in the college football, to acquire a disdain for the color purple and to be a part of something that stays with you forever.

Whether it is in Pullman, Vancouver, the Tri Cities, Everett, abroad, online or as an alumni, being a Cougar means being a member of a family. A family with a passion for waving the flag all around the world. A family with a passion for academics and athletics.

Riley Sorensen's tweet reminds us of that fact. While he is a member of the Cougar football team, we are all members of the Cougar family. And nothing can take that away from us.

Why do you think thousands of people of all ages, shapes and sizes flock from across the nation to tailgate at events? It's because being a Coug is infectious.

Maybe it's because we have all suffered from walking up hills, wacky weather and the lack of College GameDay. Or maybe it's because of the beautiful campuses and unforgettable memories that we created during our time at Washington State.

But the main reason is we love to be Cougars and no one can ever take that away from us.

Go Cougs!
