NWSB Insider and Washington State Cougars blogger Jeff Budke gives us his take in his weekly What Went Wrong post following the BIG loss by the Cougs to the Cardinals on Saturday. Jeff Tuel was 43/60 and threw for 401 yards. It is hard not to respect the man’s game on Saturday.
Our Washington State Cougars insider Jordin Ereth weighs in on this week’s football matchup against the Stanford Cardinal in NCAA football week 9 action. The Cardinal are looking to tack on another victory and move up in the BCS rankings. Meanwhile, the Cougars are attempting to mend the several tears in their offensive and defensive schemes to prevent yet another loss in the Pac-12. Can Travis Long and Marquess Wilson save the day?
Our Washington State Cougars insider Britton Ransford weighs in on this week’s football matchup against the California Golden Bears in NCAA football week 7 action. Connor Halliday needs to step up his performance in a big way after last week’s ugly performance in the loss at Oregon State. The Cougar defense will need to get to Zach Maynard in order to stop him from finding a rhythm and hitting his top WR Keenan Allen for big plays.
NWSB Writer Britton Ransford gives you his love ‘em and hate ‘em from Washington State’s matchup with the Oregon Ducks. After falling behind 20-3 in the first quarter, the Cougars settled down and played toe-to-toe with the #2 team in the country. Two touchdowns and field goal later, the Ducks found themselves in the peculiar position of a competitive 23-19 football game heading into half.
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 WSU Cougars basketball blogger Jordin Ereth reports today on the news out of Pullman that Cougars Reggie Moore was dismissed from the Washington State Cougars basketball team Monday due to a violation of team rules by Coach Ken Bone. With the loss of Reggie and Johnson – also known as “Que” – it is going to be interesting to see who steps up for the Cougar offense this season.
NWSB Insider and Oregon Ducks blogger Bryant Knox brings us a piece about Top 5 most electifying college footballers currently getting it done in the Pacific northwest. Kenjon Barner, Kasen Williams, Marcus Mariota, Marquess Wilson and De’Anthony Thomas all make the list. Oregon, Washington State, and Washington are all represented. Sorry Oregon State.
NWSB Insider and Washington St. Cougars blogger Britton Ransford 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 Connor Halliday, and on defense this week not surprisingly Travis Long. Michael Bowlin, WSU’s junior punter continued to punt well…
Our Washington State Cougars insider Jordin Ereth weighs in on this week’s football matchup against the UNLV Rebels in NCAA football week 3 action. Jordin says Expect Connor Halliday to let the ball fly often, and let Marquess Wilson make plays down field. Halliday may throw an interception or two in this game, but with the poor defensive of UNLV on the other side of the ball, the reward will greatly outweigh the risk.
NWSB Insider and Washington State Cougars football blogger Jordin Ereth breaks down the EWU vs. WSU Cougars 2012 Week 2 matchup in a new Cougs Love ‘em & Hate ‘em. Jordin loved Darryl Monroe. The (rs) freshman from Orlando, Fla. was a one-man wrecking machine Saturday afternoon. He’s not a fan of Jeff Tuel. He’s not sure if it is the complications of the offense, or the worry of injury – which is not very far fetched.
Our Washington State Cougars insider Britton Ransford weighs in on this week’s football matchup against the Eastern Washington Eagles in NCAA football week 2 action. He thinks after having a week to examine what went wrong against BYU, the Cougars should bounce back impressively against a rather inferior Eastern Washington football team. Jeff Tuel made some very questionable decisions in the passing game. He must be better at home.
NWSB Insider and WSU Cougars blogger Britton Ransford is in a state of shock today. He says the offense was bad. That wasn’t supposed to happen. The defense was bad. That was supposed to happen. If you told him that WSUs defense would hold BYU to 30 points he probably would have assumed WSU won by 14. After a promising first drive was interrupted by a terrible throwing decision by Jeff Tuel, the wheels fell off the Mike Leach bus.
