As the picture on the main site reads, “Josh Swogger will lead the Cougs against Arizona in the Pac-10 opener” pretty much salts it away who the starting QB is going to be?
Interesting thing to note – of WSU’s complete 2-deep roster, 44 players, 36 of them are underclassmen! Only 8 seniors on the entire 2-deep. If we can pull out a winning season with so many kids, man oh man imagine what next year (and beyond) will bring! Let’s hope these guys keep learning on the job, and with just 4 more wins, we have a winning year and bowl game (and extra practices to boot) and we’re in everyone’s top-25 next year. EXCITING STUFF!
Finally, on Jason Hill – 4 TD’s in 2 games, all 3 catches were TD’s last week. But there was one TD catch that was special, moreso than the others, and I’m not talking about the “I’m faster/quicker/more athletic than you” bob-n-weave on the bubble screen. I think it was the 2nd TD catch, but it was an absolute LASER beam from Swogger, who tried to hit Hill on the post in the end zone. What was amazing was how tightly covered Hill was, not only in bump-n-run with the corner but the safety was right there over the top, yet still 1) the ball got through the window, and 2) Hill made a great catch!
