Washington State has flown its flag, Ol' Crimson, for decade-straight on ESPN's College Gameday, and no other appearance has held as much controversy as the 139th-consecutive show. Gameday made its first trip to rival University of Washington, and Husky fans had made plans publicly (be them tongue-in-cheek or not) to take down the Cougar flag.
However, with the help of a limo and police escort, Ol' Crimson arrived safely on Washington's campus Saturday morning.
Resident Husky radio home Softy even put up $100 to anyone who took down the WSU flag, then backpedaled and decided that we all couldn't take a joke. Probably a smart move, since college kids will do a lot for $100, and Softy would come out looking pretty bad if anyone got hurt.
That it was. Can't do much better than a police escort in a limo with tinted windows. It was a pretty cool way for Ol' Crimson's presence to be felt while still letting UW have its day in the sun (when it eventually came out of course).
