Fallout from WSU’s bowl collapse


Eight months …. That’s how long until WSU opens its 2014 schedule against Rutgers and finally puts a result between it and Saturday’s collapse at the New Mexico Bowl.

As entertaining as games like this are, equally amusing is the reaction of fans on the internet. Here’s a sampling:

All Coug’d Up breaks it down into Five Stages of Grief, a series analyzing all that went wrong. There’s anger and denial for sure, but no mention of acceptance.

A commentary on Bleacher Report puts the blame squarely on coach Mike Leach, (What? Are they already missing Paul Wulff?)

SBNation’s CougCenter blog takes a more rational approach. In writing “Reading a dozen recaps won’t make it any better,” the blog collects Tweets from departing seniors in its article The Day After it Broke Bad.

And, of course there’s a lot about what exactly a Colorado State coach said to WSU quarterback Connor Halliday on the sidelines.
