Yesterday, Lew wrote an awesome article on the Huskies’ possible rebellion against Ol’ Crimson as ESPN’s College Gameday makes a rare trip to the state to feature Oregon at Washington this weekend. Turns out that’s not the only issue that crowd control might have to deal with Saturday morning.

There are some Cougar faithful that have apparently openly discussed the idea of taking over Gameday morning with a group of crimson and gray clad folks.

What a terrible idea, not just because it would most likely end you in jail.

Let me say this, nobody else goes around trying to take over gameday when their rival gets the opportunity for that. Let the Huskies have their day. We want Gameday to want to come to Pullman eventually so stay classy Cougs. Ol’ Crimson should still fly and ESPN prognosticators have indicated there will be protection for those who hold those two flags as always (great story HERE about the two that will bear those flags on Saturday), but beyond that it is and should be all about the Huskies and Ducks.

Washington State vs Washington, the Apple Cup on November 29th, that’s where this turf war needs to take place, like always. If we really want to invade Lake Washington snatch up the remaining 3,000 or so tickets on stub hub and let’s go cheer our Cougs on to victory in the Apple Cup.

Chime in if you have an opinion on the situation with a comment below.

Go Cougs!
