WSU lost to an FCS team for the second year in a row.

Good morning. When I started writing for CougCenter in 2014, Mark Sandritter sent some guidelines along for the HCA posts. One of them was that it should be a minimum of 150 words. So what I'm going to do is copy/paste two sentences until I meet the minimum.

WSU lost to an FCS team for the second year in a row. Nobody will be held accountable. WSU lost to an FCS team for the second year in a row. Nobody will be held accountable. WSU lost to an FCS team for the second year in a row. Nobody will be held accountable.

WSU-EWU notebook: Gabe Marks says team needs to find own identity | The Spokesman-Review
Eastern Washington’s offensive line – perhaps the most scrutinized unit on the team this year – got off to a pretty decent start. The young Eagles linemen blocked for an offense that rolled up 606 yards – 17th most in school history. The previous record was 518 – in another landmark win, the 49-46 defeat of Oregon State in 2013.

Beer

Best beer I had this week: Had a lot of good beer during the course of the long weekend. Plan to have a lot more because my favorite team sucks again. The leader so far is probably Heavy Seas Blackbeard's Breakfast. Also had a Heavy Seas TropiCannon Citrus IPA that was quite tasty. Heavy Seas is appropriate for this weekend, since our coach is Mr. Pirate /drink and our sports lives as WSU fans are a series of ups and downs, almost all downs.
