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. As much as you might want to blame Mike Leach, don’t do it just yet. He has time to turn this program around with new recruits. Blame Connor Halliday, Jeremiah Laufasa and Teondray Caldwell.
NWSB Insider and Washington State Cougars blogger Jordin Ereth gives us his take in his weekly What Went Wrong post There was a lot to love about the Cougars performance. 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. He had received praise all pre season long for his improved decision making and accuracy. Unfortunately, it looks like Halliday is still struggling greatly.
NWSB Insider and Washington State Cougars Blogger Jordin Ereth gives us three players to watch out for in the matchup against the Auburn Tigers. In the season opener, Connor Halliday will be the difference maker, as the Mike Leach’s pass-heavy offense starts with the quarterback. Next in line is Gabe Marks, who is primed for a breakout year at wide receiver. Finally, someone who is under the radar is running back Teondray Caldwell.
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. O-line help is most needed, the Cougs QB’s got sacked way too much last year. Also the D needs some help on 3rd down situations. Mike Leach is calling for a Bowl bid this year, but a lot of work is going to be needed for that to happen.
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. The defense is experienced and should improve again. The problematic O-Line will remain, as will the shaky Connor Halliday.
NWSB Insider and Washington State Cougars blogger Jordin Ereth gives us his take in his weekly What Went Wrong post following the BIG loss by the Cougs to the Ducks from Seattle on Saturday night. The Ducks came away with a 51-26 victory over the Cougars, and nobody batted an eyelash at the outcome. Marquess Wilson – who had a solid 12 receptions for 182 yards and a touchdown – still had some key drops to join in the blame game.
NWSB Insider and Washington St. Cougars Insider Steve after each week of the regular season and possibly during a bowl game or BCS playoffs should the Cougs be so lucky will stop by and bring you his WSU game balls. Balls are awarded to the Cougars offensive MVP’s Carl Winston III and Teondray Caldwell, and on defense this week the entire Cougar defense. Without any question Andrew Furney deserves credit for his 60-yard field goal on ST’s.
