Apparently Bill Doba, Washington State University football coach, is – how shall we say – "challenged." The Cougars just got whupped 48-20 by University of Arizona (unranked, 2-3) and Doba is quoted in the Tacoma News Tribune as saying:
"Arizona, I said, is the second or third best team in the conference. I still hold true to that. They are talented – I think more than the team [ASU] we’re facing this week."
That’s the 5-0, 18th ranked ASU he is talking about. The one that is being given a nine point spread over his team.
ASU’s record aside, and even if the Cougars beat ASU at home on Saturday, to claim that the Mildcats are nearer to the ranks of USC, Cal & Oregon than ASU is, well, that’s just crazy talk.
