Podcast Vs. Everyone: WSU’s bowl eligibility is an incredible accomplishment

A big beatdown of Arizona means the Cougars will play in the postseason. That’s pretty incredible.

PULLMAN, WA - NOVEMBER 19: Washington State linebacker Justus Rogers (37) and running back Max Borghi (21) look at the score board during the second half of a PAC 12 conference matchup between the Arizona Wildcats and the Washington State Cougars on November 19, 2021, at Martin Stadium in Pullman, WA.

The Washington State Cougars secured bowl eligibility with a win over the Arizona Wildcats, something neither of us thought they’d do when we set out to forecast the season. It’s an incredible accomplishment for the Cougs, who have been through so much this season.

And now ... an Apple Cup ... that means something? Again? If the Cougs can beat the Huskies and Oregon State can beat Oregon, WSU will be in the Pac-12 Championship Game. That is completely bonkers.

But first, we start out talking about basketball, which improved to 5-0 with a win over Winthrop on Monday. Eventually, we get around to talking about soccer’s exit from the NCAAs, and volleyball’s surge into its postseason.

You’ll probably hate it. We don’t care. We also use naughty words from time to time. You’ve been warned.
