With no regular show this week due to weather and technology, Brent decided to stop by the house I’ve been dogsitting at to give us a chance to get some content out for the week. Late college signing day was yesterday, and we had anticipated more interesting WSU news to come out of it. While the Cougs did land two interesting commitments, it’s still just two commitments. So, we took this episode in a different direction.
Since we last did a WSU-centric show, the Alamo Bowl happened! I was right and Brent was wrong, thankfully. We listen to the highlights from the game and react to them, and talk about what made this year’s WSU team different from those in the recent past, and shared some memories from the season. It’s truly a season all WSU fans should look back upon with great fondness, and at least for the two of us, it’s the most fun season we’ve had watching college football in a long time.
We do actually get to the most recent WSU news, though, from Gage Gubrud’s failed attempt to transfer, to Ken Wilson leaving, to WSU’s two newest commits. A lot of time is spent discussing the value of good assistant coaches, why they’ve been jumping ship, and what’s next. Does Leach need to shift his focus from great teaching coaches to better recruiters with the recent departures among the coaching staff? We discuss.
The two new guys, Nicholas Sheetz and James Price, both offer size at their positions that WSU doesn’t see that often, and in the case of Price, a JC transfer, he may see the field immediately.
Somehow we still manage to ramble for over an hour this week, and we greatly appreciate you coming by and listening to us. There should be a regular, non-WSU centric episode of the podcast coming later this weekend, so we appreciate your patience. Until then, though, go Cougs!
