Good morning, Coug fans! I’m sure we all woke up with a similar amount of heavy on our hearts given that, under normal circumstances, we would have Cougar football right now. Take a moment of silence.

Speaking of Cougar football- son of Cougar great Drew Bledsoe, John Bledsoe, joins the transfer portal. The 6’3” and 215lbs redshirt junior looks to have two more years of eligibility in him.

While Washington State didn’t hold the most lucrative opportunities for Bledsoe, it’s clear the experience provided something meaningful. I don’t want to speculate what brought this decision on, in the tweet (posted in the afternoon on September 3rd), he does say how lengthy of a decision process this was- and with the season delay from Covid-19, it doesn’t come as a total surprise.

Given the nature and the current state of the world, I know Coug fans will wish the best for John in his future endeavors!

We do wish you well John, and as I’m sure you’ve been hearing for quite some time- you can always find your way back home, even just to visit and say hi! To quote Utah State on twitter: “:(“. Wherever you wind up is a lucky program!

That’s about it from me, Coug fans. I hope everyone is staying healthy!
