There are less than 100 days until Washington State's football season begins and as such, the Cougars have been counting down the days on Twitter. Part of that countdown included the WSU Athletics account tweeting a picture of Chad Eaton on Friday to coincide 90 days remaining. Eaton, of course, wore No. 90 at WSU.
90 DAYS - Today's countdown features @wsucougfb All-American and Pac-12 Morris Trophy winner Chad Eaton! #GoCougs pic.twitter.com/Mfmk6HzKWZ— WSU Cougars (@WSUCougars) May 31, 2014
Travis Long took notice of the countdown, so the former No. 89 decided to alert the fact that there was a pretty decent player with that number.
@WSUCougars @wsucougfb 89 days now! I think someone awesome wore #89 real well..— Travis Long (@tlong89) May 31, 2014
The WSU Athletics account responded appropriately:
.@tlong89 @wsucougfb You mean this guy? #89days #GoCougs pic.twitter.com/bctt4PKStx— WSU Cougars (@WSUCougars) May 31, 2014
The only way this exchange could have been better was if WSU responded with this GIF:
If you're wondering, Long is still on the Eagles roster. He spent last season on the practice squad and will attempt to make the team as a linebacker this season. And for the record, he now wears No. 57.
