Good Friday morning Cougs and TGIF at that!! Back at it today with some links for you to look at from the past couple days. Now that the NBA Finals are over and since I pay zero attention these days to the MLB, it’s time to focus solely on the upcoming football season for me. It’s kind of slowed recently on the recruiting front and there’s not much, but we look at some analysis for the pace at which WSU played at last season and a few artist renderings for Martin Stadium when it gets completed (minus the promised and much anticipated crimson endzones).
When I think of pace, the first thing that comes to mind is plays per game. But, like Bill mentions, if you’re playing an uptempo team, or a team prone to turnovers, or suffer bad field position, or don’t get a lot of explosives, you’ll increase plays per game without gaining much description by “pace”.
At the 2012 Night With Cougar Football in Seattle, I got a chance to talk with new defensive coordinator Mike Breske for a few minutes. Breske was cordial and the conversation was mostly benign … until the topic of the Football Operations Building came up.
His face lit up like I had just told him Jadaveon Clowney was coming to play for him — he was that fired up about what that facility was going to do for WSU’s ability to compete in the Pac-12.
Happy Thursday Cougs (how can it be Thursday already??), as we wind down another week here at the blog. And what a week it’s been, with “OldSavage” basically taking things over in his supersized preview of ’13 WSU that was so big, we have managed to space it out over an entire week! In case you missed any of them, you feel free to check his work from Monday (skill positions), Tuesday (O and D line) and Wednesday (LB’s and DB’s).
