Weber State Football Game Day Special: WSU v. EWU

Still ample opportunity for our Wildcats to get the football program back on track

The WSU Wildcats are back on the road this weekend, where they'll be meeting up this afternoon at 5:00 p.m. (MT), with Big Sky Conference rival Eastern Washington U, on the Eagles' butt-ugly home "turf." Kinda makes your eyes bleed, dunnit?

Roos Field, Cheney, WA
Here's the pre-game "hype" from the Standard-Examiner, which includes the somewhat "bitter-sweet" news that Coach Sears' "quarterback rotation dilemma" is over:
And here's the skinny from the the Eagles' hometown newspaper, the Cheney Free Press, which quite delicately, and in a highly sportsman-like manner, avoids any expression of over-confidence:
Looking at the Vegas odds, however, we find that our WSU Wildcats are (surprise of surprises) 30-point underdogs, Uh-oh!

And here are the obligatory links to the live streaming audio and video, Wildcats fans:
Remember, folks. With Weber State only one game outta first place, and with another seven games remaining to go, there's still ample opportunity for our Wildcats to get the football program back on track.

Right, Folks?


Repeat after me: Go Wildcats!

Update 10/5/13 8:14 p.m.:  Whatabummer.  Our WSU Wildcats fall to the EWU Eagles, by a score of  41-19.  Lookin' at the bright side however, WSU scored more points tonight than in the last three games, which is a victory of sorts, don'tcha think? And as an added consolation, the "Cats did beat the spread.

Sheesh! WSU is already down 13-0 in the first quarter. No problem, we hope...

TD Weber State! Unfortunately the kickker muffs the extra point. Nor to worry, WSU fans; it's all part of Coch Sears' game plan. EWU 13, WSU 6.

End of first quarter EWU 13, WSU 6...

rudizink said...

Touchdown Eastern. WSU Still 6, EWU 20. Not to worry, people. Coach Sears' game plan calls for luring EWU into a sense of complacency, before the Wildcats "turn up the heat!"

rudizink said...

TD WSU! The Wildcats muffed the two-point attempt, unfortunately. WSU down by eight points, with a little under 7 minutes left in the second quarter.

rudizink said...

EWU scores again, with 4 minutes left in the 2d quarter bring the WU lead to 15 points after the PAT. No biggie, Wildcats fans. Coach Sears is obviously keeping his powder dry until the 2d half!

rudizink said...

And now it's halftime, with Eastern leading by a measly 27-12. Bring on the Dancin' Girls, we say!

Apparently the WSU game plan is to lure EWU into complacency and overconfidence and then score quickly and often.

rudizink said...

Exactly right, BR!

rudizink said...

WSU cleverly allows Eastern to score again, bringing the EWU lead to a measly 22 points, and thus lures EWU into further "overconfidence and compacency," thereby setting the stage for a Giant Wildcats 4th Quarter!

rudizink said...

Eastern scores again, with 26 seconds, bringing their lead to 41-12, thus increasing EWU "overconfidence and complacency" to self-damaging and dangerous new levels

rudizink said...

Okay. WSU finally scores a TD and PAT early in the 4th stanza, closing in on Coach Sears' "overconfidence and complacency tactic," thus springing the trap for WSU's well-planned 4th quarter points blitz!

Yesiree, Rudy. Coach Sears has the Eagles exactly where he wants them, LOL!
