WSU football’s terrifying thrill ride thrills, chills this Cougar

Chris Petersen jeers, Mariners cheers: Seattle Times readers sound off

Huskies Is honeymoon over for Petersen? Against Stanford, some great individual performances on defense were negated by catastrophic, bond-headed calls by coach Chris Petersen.
