NWSB Insider and Washington State Cougar Blogger Brian Scott breaks down what “Coug’n It” really means, and how WSU put it on full display against Colorado State in the New Mexico Bowl.

They came out strong on their opening drive with a well-executed 75 yards leading to 7 points. Jordin’s player that needs improvement for WSU. Connor Halliday.

In the season opener, Connor Halliday will be the difference maker, as the Mike Leach’s pass-heavy offense starts with the quarterback.

Brand new NWSB Insider and Washington State Cougars blogger Brian Scott gives us the top four things he is watching for at this summers Cougars training camp.

NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson runs through some quotes and thoughts about Washington State’s time on the podium at the 2013 Pac-12 Media Day. Especially after a season where WSU showed they have some fight in them, it may seem ridiculous, at least to some, that the Cougs find themselves behind a Colorado team who is still a few years away from even being considered potentially relevant. But, as all WSU fans should take away from the Ducks’ miraculous basketball season this past year, anything can happen in the Pac-12

NWSB Insider and Cougars’ blogger James Crabtree-Hannigan breaks down Washington State’s biggest question mark heading into the season: running back. Sophomore Teondray Caldwell is in line to take over the lion’s share of the carries. Looking forward, we mostly know what to expect out of the Cougars.

Don’t expect a bowl game, although Mike Leach does. However, expect more wins than last season. The starting QB job likely belongs to Connor Halliday, but Vince Mayle is good enough to play right away.

Marquess Wilson gets drafted by the Chicago Bears

Marquess Wilson Washington State Cougars

NWSB Insider and Washington State Cougars’ blogger Jordin Ereth talks about Marquess Wilson being selected by the Chicago Bears in the 2013 NFL Draft. Everyone with a pulse is aware of Wilson’s disastrous departure from Washington State last fall, and because of that his stock was guaranteed to slip. But 236th? That’s no slip, that is a plummet. There were 26 receivers taken before Wilson, so apparently NFL owners believe that Wilson’s incredible upside wasn’t worth the risk…
