CHEYENNE -- A guy who played at Utah State joined us on this week's episode of the Roaring Repeater Podcast.

Typically that would be ... unwelcome news. Not today.

Chris Cooley, a Powell native and nine-year NFL veteran, still calls northern Wyoming home and has no ill will toward the Pokes. In fact, he wanted to play his college ball in Laramie. He sent the VHS tapes to prove it.

We chatted about that, his two games against the Cowboys, his NFL career in Washington and a bunch of other stuff, including a great story about former UW quarterback Casey Bramlet aiding him in a major knee injury when he was a kid.

We also talked about a crazy photo on his blog that got him in a little bit of hot water and his brief career in the media world in DC.

Honestly, this is one of my favorite podcasts we've done. Cooley was ... well, cool. Very open and hilarious. Had the fortune of meeting him in person last week at the Celebrities Against Cancer softball tournament in Cody.

Dude can hit a softball. He can also play a mean first base -- beer in hand even.

We also discussed the Cowboys' 2021 television schedule and the exit of two cornerbacks and whether or not UW should dip into the NCAA Transfer Portal.
