Pawdcast begins series on 19 most significant games of the 21st century

https://www.shpawdcast.com/post/introducing-a-new-writing-series-for-august

This latest written series will cover the 19 most significant , for positive or negative reasons, Cougar football games of the 21st century. The word significant is important as I tried to choose 19 games that had a large-scale impact on the program.

There are many memorable games I won’t include, because while they were fun in the moment and in reminiscing, they didn’t have a significant impact on the program. A good example of this would be the 2009 win at Tulsa. In that game the Coogs scored a touchdown and recovered an onside kick to set up a Matt Hogan game-winning field goal, all in less than a minute of game action.

That moment was insanely fun but didn’t really change the course of that season.


In this piece, they list their honorable mentions.

Ugly one to start off as they pick the last game of the Dana Dimel era: 2002 L 32-14 to USF. Things would get better though.
