2012 Apple Cup Preview
Let's be honest here. It's hard to compete with a school that is the #4 public university in America, has the 10th best campus, and is located in a city with the nation's #1 economy. It would be unrealistic to expect a school in Pullman, WA to have the resources to stay competitive. Not bragging, just simply the truth. Comparing the University of Washington to Washington St. is like comparing a diamond to a cubic Zirconia or a Bentley to a Chrysler 300. They both serve the same function, but one has much higher value than the other. The Apple Cup on Friday will be a blood bath, a beat down on the level of Vin Diesel vs. the Idaho thug in Knockaround Guys.
Don't get me wrong, I associate with Cougars. Some of my best friends are Cougars. I've even had some Cougars in my house before. They're hard working, proud people. It's not their fault they don't have access to a billionaire alumni association and top caliber football recruits. The Cougars do the best they can with what they have. To Cougar fans worldwide don't take the 2012 Apple Cup ass kicking personally. It's only business.
