Poster of success?

If that's true, the Cougs will be the 28th best football team in the country this upcoming season. If not, well, they still have the 28th best schedule poster in the land according to Bleacher Report. Criteria for making the list included clarity, schedule (Is it clear and easy to follow? ... Not strength of), photo quality, uniqueness, eye appeal and coolness factor.

You can request WSU schedule posters and cards here. It looks like they're out of football ones, though. I still haven't found a place to get past posters. Maybe it's worth a call to the marketing and promotions department?! I have a collection of sports schedule posters from my time in Pullman sitting in the closet waiting to be framed when we have a house with a game room.

And on a geeky note, I couldn't be more pleased to see three of my favorite things, college football, visual design and my school, combined.

Oregon State was the only other Pac-10 school on the list, coming in at No. 25.

Vanderbilt was No. 1, but I didn't think it was anything special.

Honorable mentions:

No. 3: Bowling Green

No. 4: Iowa State

No. 5: Minnesota 

No. 7: LSU

No. 26: Louisville
 No. 35: Baylor

No. 43: Wake Forest 

 No. 48: Navy

Out of all of them, I liked the Northwestern (#21) poster too. And I liked the comment on the WSU poster - 'Someone in Pullman must like squiggly lines.'

I liked the Northwestern poster, too. Shout out to your state at No. 5!!!!

I am still trying to figure out how Vanderbilt got the top spot.

I think the squiggly lines give it a little something extra. It would be the same old thing if you just had the collage of players, but the lines add a little something, something. :)

I will always have a soft spot in my heart for Minnesota football. :) I like the WSU poster, of course.
