The Monday After
Recapping the weirdest season we’ll ever watch.
One very bad play is going to dominate our thoughts, but we shouldn’t let it overshadow the positives.
Seriously ... could you have scripted it any better? And still have it be believable?
The way the Cougars pulled out their final home game ended a season narrative in the most perfect way possible.
At this point, there’s really no reason to think the Cougars are any more than that.
Sometimes, you just can’t buy a break.
Soft isn’t a word that we throw around these parts very often, but it’s hard to escape right now.
Some people are really stressing out about the defense. I suggest letting it go.
WSU torched New Mexico State, which leaves us to figure out just how meaningful it is.
It’s hard to articulate what this season meant, but I’m going to try, anyway.
WSU’s consistency has been completely remarkable.
And upon closer inspection, it probably was a better performance than it seemed.
It’s not just the winning; it’s the winning with this particular group of players.
Lots of offense with just enough defense always has been a winning recipe for Mike Leach.
The Cougs proved that the first three games of the season were no fluke in a narrow loss to the desperate, talented Trojans.
Perhaps I underestimated these guys.
I decided to write a column befitting the Cougs’ effort.
