Looks like Rolo is giving DeLaura some completion for starting QB by getting Tennessee Transfer to commit https://twitter.com/WSUCougarFB/status/1347733818170478593 https://twitter.com/BroadwayJay2/status/1347701848040497159

Jayden De Laura arrested for DUI. What's going on at Wazzu?

Post by BigWave96744 »

In 2020, Coach Rolovich took over a Washington State football program plagued with arrest and tragedy associated with the prior regime.

I often wondered what's going on in Pullman? I asked friends who went there and was told there is nothing to do but Study and/or Drink. But isn't that true for many other college towns? Is the environment not conducive for local/Polynesian athletes? Is college life just out of control and tolerated by coaches, the AD, President and Chancellor?

Here are some disturbing facts surrounding the Cougar's Football Program in the past decade.

Local HI/Polynesian Athletes arrested:
= 2013 DE Emmitt Su'a-Kalio (Am Samoa) -- Assault
= 2013 LB Chester Su'a (Kaimuki) -- DUI
= 2014 DT Daniel Ekuale (Am Samoa & former UH recruit) -- DUI
= 2016 LB Logan Tago (Am Samoa & former UH recruit) -- Robbery & Assault
= 2016 Safety Shalom Luani (Am Samoa) -- Assault
= 2016 NT Robert Barbers (Am Samoa) -- Assault
= 2016 DT Toso "TJ" Fehoko -- Assault
= 2019 OG Christian Haangana -- Felony Vandalism
= 2019 LB Fa’avae Fa’avae -- Felony Vandalism
= 2019 WSoccer Makamae Gormera-Stevens (Kamehameha) -- Felony Vandalism
= 2021 QB Jayden de Laura (St Louis) -- DUI

Also of note:
= 2013 WR Drew Loftus (former UH WR) -- third-degree theft, minor in possession of alcohol and minor intoxicated in public
= 2013 RB Leon Brooks -- DUI
= 2014 WR Gabe Marks ‐‐ fourth-degree assault, second-degree criminal trespassing, being a minor intoxicated in public and frequenting a tavern
= 2014 LB Ivan McLennan ‐- unlawful handling of weapons capable of producing bodily harm after pointing a nonlethal Airsoft pellet gun at a student
= 2014 CB Daquawn Brown ‐‐ assault on male and female student. Female victim soon after committed suicide.
= 2014 DE Austin Brown -- Theft
= 2015 Washington St Football team had the most arrest among all D1 colleges in the past 5 years. In 2014 (8 arrest), 2013 (7), 2012 (9), 2011 (4), 2010 (3)
https://mynorthwest.com/12462/washingto ... he-nation/
= 2017 CB Zaire Webb -- Theft
= 2017 WR Anthony White Jr -- Theft
= 2018 QB Tyler Hilinski -- Died from Suicide
= 2019 DB Bryce Beekman -- Died from Drug Overdose

Crimes involving former Cougars who played in the NFL:
= 2017 LB Anthony McClanahan -‐ Murder of his wife
= 2019 QB Mark Rypien -- Domestic Violence on wife
= 2020 QB Ryan Leaf -- Domestic Battery on partner

The above are what was found on various new media. By looking at it, something doesn't seem right 😟 How you figgah??? 🤔

(Please leave political rants out of the comments section 🤙🤙)

Breaking News
Former Cougar football player Kassidy Woods files lawsuit against Nick Rolovich, WSU
Sep. 1, 2021 at 12:23 pm
Updated Sep. 1, 2021 at 5:45 pm

By Theo Lawson
The Spokesman-Review
Former Washington State wide receiver Kassidy Woods has filed a lawsuit against Nick Rolovich one year after a phone call involving the player and coach was leaked, making national news at the height of college football’s player empowerment movement and in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Woods’ lawsuit, which was filed on Aug. 20 in the player’s home state of Texas, claims “Rolovich’s acts were racist, intentional, malicious, willful, and in gross and reckless disregard of Woods’ constitutional rights.”

The lawsuit also alleges the treatment that Woods received and the acts of Rolovich “were in direct retaliation for the exercise of civil rights secured by the Free Association protected afforded by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution.”

I get the feeling Hawaii lucked out when Rolo left for Wazzu.

If he doesn't win the job sometime this season or next season, he's gone I think.

I think if Washington State and Rolovich don't show some serious improvement this year and loses the Apple Cup to Washington as well, I'm not sure Rolovich makes it to year 3.

I'm sure if not for the large buyout clause that they would have just fired him already just for being a distraction. If something comes out in discovery because of the lawsuit that is grounds for termination for cause, i'm sure they will pull the trigger right away.

it's been a strange past year and a half...

I want him to do well enough to keep a decent HC job. I am happy with our current coach. But I would like to see Rolo back some day when there is an opening and he is available at our level/price.

Whoa, WSU gets smacked by first time head coach at USC 45-14. Freshman QB at USC looks better than the starter.
