    Folks, things are bleak in Pullman. WSU is 3-7. The Cougs have not won a game since Week 7 at Idaho. The Cougs have come very close to having one hell of a season; losing by 3 to FAU, losing by 5 against Colorado, this game was complete BS, but Cougs only have themselves to blame for this loss with Halliday throwing a pick while near the goal line. Against Cal, the score may appear lopsided, the Cougs were driving to take the lead late in the game but Halliday fumbled the ball and Cal recovered it for touchdown. Against Stanford, after being dismantled for 3 quarters WSU responded scoring 21 unanswered to take the lead with less than 40 seconds remaining in the game, of course Stanford drives the ball down the field with the little time remaining and kicks the game winning field goal. Against Oregon the team played the Ducks tough for a half. Against OSU, the Beavers dismantled the Cougs for a half before the Cougs rallied to take the lead in the fourth quarter to only watch the lead disappear in one play. All we have left to play is Washington, the #3 rated and undefeated Washington Huskies. Folks it appear the Cougs will finish 3-8. And notice I saw 3-8, not 3-9 because the scheduling committee apparently cannot count to 12. The Cougs only had 2 non conference games, not the normal 3 like everyone else gets in the PAC-12. At the moment, a third non conference looks very appealing because it would give Coach Worgum a chance to accomplish at least one contract goal.

    However, there are positives to the Coach Worgum era: Coach Worgum can recruit! Last season he brought in an ESPNU TOP 150 WR, Curtis Henderson. Henderson this season was the Cougs' second best OVR receiver. Unfortunately, Henderson went down with an injury and has missed practically the entire season. This season Coach Worgum continued to hit the recruiting trail hard, signing the #29 rated WR Caleb Hill from Louisiana. This was a big signing for the Cougs as it established a pipeline into Louisiana. Coach Worgum during his two years at WSU has established pipelines in Texas and Louisiana, and is attempting to create a pipeline in Wisconsin before the season ends.

    In addition to Henderson, WSU got lucky in the transfer lottery last off season. With BSU QB Jimmy Laughrea and RB Jay Ajayi transfering to WSU. Laughrea comes in with an OVR of 82, and Ajayi comes in with an OVR of 82, and his speed is 95 and acceleration 96. In addition to the BSU transfers, WSU got a tight end transfer from Oregon, Jordan Hagen, OVR 83. These players are by far the best players the Cougs will have next season, and will the Cougs compete next season.

    At the moment, Coach Worgum's approval rating is 61%, I don't know how it is 61%, but it is. The basic poll question, is will WSU offer a contract extension to Coach Worgum, but the follow up question is should I take the extension. This team will be better next season, but remember the Cougs play in the division of death with Washington and Oregon.

    I don't think you will get fired but I also think you should get the hell out of that Conference ASAP. With Oregon and Washington every year, you don't stand a chance in hell winning up there...just my 2 cents :)

    I'm confused...the poll question I see is: Will the WSU Coach get fired?

    But if you can get out of town, it would probably be best.

    Yeah, my approval rating jumped from 61 to 71%. I am pretty sure I am safe, now the question is do I stay or go?

    Unlike most, I am not intimidated by boda and WGW. I realize I play in the Division of Death, but I can still be successful at WSU. Next season I will have a QB that most likely be rated 85 OVR, with a throw power of 88-90, and accuracy 90-93. I never get to play with that type of talent at QB. My running back will have at least 95 speed and 96 acceleration. And my receiving corp is very good, I signed a ESPNU TOP 150 player last season, and signed a 4 star WR recruit this year. The defensive side may not be improving at a fast rate, but I like the direction of the team.

    Lastly, while everyone else gets to play in the conference championship games, and bowl games I am going to study which jobs I believe will be open. If my name is not called early on the CC, I may stay because I am not going through the CC hoping for something better Wyoming/SDSU.

    It is not like I have any plans on beating you. You should look at what I am returning next year on the offensive side of the ball, I kinda want to come back. If I win all my games, but yours it is still a successful season.

    Yes, most likely Arizona is on the schedule. Realistically if I win all my CPU games, I could still lose all my user games and everything will be good.

    I'm not gonna guarantee victory or anything, I'm just saying I will be a tough out, unlike most CPU teams

    Last year in T3 I got a bowl bid with five, this year a bowl bid with four that is unbelievable. Hey Cheez is this realistic? I must be on fire!

    but they are football legacies. They bring fans. They draw ratings.

    This is washington state. They do none of these things!

    Payoff!!!
