The Cougars are definitely a strong team this season. Well, they made a lot of changes for their team and their coaching staff, and that is probably what made them even better. In terms of just their raw talent, they are well above the competition. I believe that they just needed to mesh and work with a capable coach. This is the fruits of the changes that they did, and they are going to harvest even more as the season progresses.
