Think about this, the Cougs are 4-3 and they really haven’t put it all together yet. I mean there’s Idaho and Southern Utah, but they haven’t actually had a great game offensively, defensively and special team’s wise yet in a challenging environment. Even the Cal game wasn’t a classic game of good all-around play.

The only shot at beating Oregon is to put it all together this game. Regardless of the final score (and the Cougs would probably need 45 plus to get this one), this game won’t be won without all three phases playing the best they’ve played this season. UO is that good.

Mike Leach is challenging his team this week to play the best they’ve played all season, regardless of the opponent that WSU will face. “One week better” is always the motto. It would be so amazing to watch our team play a full game against a team like this and earn a victory.
