Monday morning trivia

What happens when you combine the alphabet and Cougar football? Very weird trivia questions.

Jeff Tuel would not be a very good guess.

Last week, I asked some questions about the history of Cougar quarterbacks. Today, we move on to the rest of the skill positions on offense. But, instead of asking some generic questions about who ran for the most yards, or caught the most passes, we're going to play a strange version of the alphabet game.

The premise is simple, take each letter of the alphabet (minus a few with no result) and correctly name the Cougar player with a matching last name who racked up the most yards from scrimmage (rushing + receiving) during his WSU career. If I thought Finas Rabb had more yards from scrimmage than any other WSU player with a last name beginning with the letter R, I'd guess him. You probably don't want to guess Finas Rabb.

(I'll fill in the correct answers as they are guessed)

A -

B - Steve Broussard

C - Richard Calvin

D - Dan Doornink

E - Tali Ena

F -

G - Brandon Gibson

H - Tim Harris

I - Chris Ivory

J - Bernard Jackson

K - Brian Kelly

L - Mike Levenseller

M - Rueben Mayes

N - Ike Nelson

O -

P - Kerry Porter

Q - None

R - Jerome Riley

S - Tim Stallworth

T - Dwight Tardy

U - None

V - None

W - Shaumbe Wright-Fair

X - None

Y - Gordon Yeomans

Z - Farwan Zubedi

Note No. 1: only players since 1956 are included. It's the data available. Yes, it's easily available, but don't be the one who ruins the fun for everyone

Note No. 2: I know I said the other skill players, but quarterbacks could be included if they racked up enough yards from scrimmage as a runner/receiver.

#1 David Shaw vs. #9 Mike Leach: Vote for the better Pac-12 football coach! - Pacific Takes
Prediction: This will be a close matchup. Leach has a huge fanbase and might have a lot of upset potential at this spot. Shaw is well-liked and well-respected, but he is still fairly new to the head coaching establishment. Will he be able to move on?
