An 'Apple Cup' for the Ages

An 'Apple Cup' for the Ages
Those sneaky Vandals. Trying to raid the Cougs' coaching staff.

WSU Linebackers coach Jeff CHOTE is interviewing for the head job at Idaho.

Former Wazzu star QB Jason Gesser is currently the interim boss in Vandal-ville.

As if current Crimson and Grey top guy Mike Leach didn't have enough to worry about. Coming off their latest shellacking, the Cougs will no doubt have no problem sucking it up and setting their sights on the hated Huskies. Yup, its' all about Friday's Apple Cup in the Palouse. Talk about a couple of teams living drastically different pigskin lives this fall. WSU, winless in the Pac 12, losers of eight in a row.....playing through all sorts of ridiculous issues. Jeff Tuel will start at quarterback in what may be his last game. The NCAA hasn't decided whether it will grant Jeff an extra year of eligibility....and, Tuel may not even want to come back anyway. Been an emotional year for the senior, a tossed ball in Leach's unsuccessful quarterback juggling act.
While the Huskies are rolling. On a winning streak.....big favorites to beat up their cross state rivals. So, in true, boring cliché form.....none of that stuff's apple cup week.

Justin Glenn "In state rivalry. Battle of Washington. You got guys talking trash from both schools. Lot of people from over there. They know a lot of people over here. Just fun man. Great atmosphere. It's going to be exciting."

The Vegas rollers expect the U-Dub to own this year's Apple Cup. So, do the Cougs....have a snowball's chance in.......uh oh.....flashback to that 1992 battle in the blizzard.....The Pullman snowbowl sends a cold shiver through the hearts of all huskies......but, every Cougar knows exactly where he or she was when our good friend, and native of this part of the state drew bledsoe led washington state from behind to upset the heavily favored defending national champs from montlake. I've checked the Friday forecast for Pullman, no snow in far.
