Anyone know the origin of the spelling "Coog"

Don’t know the true backstory. I know it helps us differentiate (up here it’s Go Cougs for Washington State which is in the vicinity).

I would love to know the official story on how we got to “Coog”.

Good question; ever since I’ve been following (going back to the early 80’s), it’s always been Coogs. Can’t find anything online about it.

Might have just been a pronunciation thing as Coug doesn’t look like it makes the same sound as Coog.

Vague memory of that being answered on the previous rendition of the coogfans web site.
