PULLMAN, Wash.—Washington State University is preparing for its first bowl game in a decade against Colorado State. The Cougars play in the New Mexico Bowl Saturday, December 21, but there are some people the Athletic Director said will not be getting tickets.
Athletic Director Bill Moos keeps a 'no bowl ticket' file. The file is comprised of people who sent nasty emails to WSU about the Athletic Department. On Tuesday, KREM 2 News received a copy of those emails.
WSU Football Coach Mike Leach’s first season ended with a dismal 3 and 9 record. After that,one person wrote:
"This will go down as one of the biggest disasters in coaching history, and Leach will never be a head coach again."
Moos replied to some of the emails and stated that change is not easy.
In the fall, news of the 'no bowl ticket' file became public. WSU leaders said some people even requested to be on it. One email called Moos an “idiot.” Others wrote about their discontent over the football schedule.
