THE LEGEND OF OL' CRIMSON, the Washington State flag, continues to grow. Now in its eighth season of appearing on ESPN's Gameday--regardless of location, the elements, or hostile fans--the Cougar flag is a testament to the unyielding spirit of the Cougar Nation.
Thanks to Ol' Crimson Booster Club president and original flag-waver
, Club founder and secretary/treasurer
readers, and hundreds of brave Crimson Soldiers, as well as the financial support of Cougar faithful, Ol' Crimson - along with sidekick Ol' White - has captured the attention and admiration of the college football world.

The Sporting News
, to name just a handful.
As of this writing, Ol' Crimson has appeared on
consecutive broadcasts of
and 107 appearances, overall.
