Cougs Goin' Bowlin'!

Congrats to Alex Brink, Mkristo Bruce and the WSU Cougs! Their 37-15 victory today over UCLA at the Rose Bowl makes them bowl eligible for the first time since the 2003 Holiday Bowl season.

Where do you think the Cougs will end up? It almost certainly won't be the Rose Bowl or Holiday Bowl, as we have already lost to USC and Cal. If the Cougs win out against the Arizona schools and the Fuskies, they will likely be headed down to Mike Price's new hometown, El Paso, for the Sun Bowl. The Las Vegas Bowl, Emerald Bowl, or Hawaii Bowl are also in the mix, depending on how well we finish and how the other PAC-10 contenders (Oregon, Oregon St., UCLA, Arizona State) fare.

I was just down in El Paso, and while the Sun Bowl is more prestigious (and nothing against El Paso), Las Vegas or Honolulu seem like the better holiday destinations for the fans (the Hawaii Bowl is on Christmas Eve). San Francisco in late December? C'mon.

Go Cougs! See you at Martin Stadium next Saturday!
