It’s been a great season my friends. It’s always a tear-jerker when the season ends for the real fans, but at least this season we can enjoy the bowl game process through January 9 or whatever it is. Then we’re back at it a couple weeks later previewing Spring ball.

Like I’ve said before, everything in the entire football world is more meaningful when your team goes bowling. I have full faith that the team will give us an early Christmas present and win this game, sending us into the off-season with hopes of returning to the upper echelon of the Pac-12 in the very near future. This is just the first good post season of what will be a wave of success under Mike Leach and our Washington State University Cougars!

Even though we saw our guys lose to the purple cheater eaters, we got to witness a win over USC in L.A., an impressive win over Arizona in the Desert and a much needed revenge win over Utah. Now the rewards are clear!

Enjoy this bowl game and then the quest for a first Super Bowl can invade our minds while we sit around and gorge ourselves on 34 more bowls and NFL Playoffs.
