    There is just one little problem with that. The Cougars have not been on a regular playing field yet this season.

    If high school games are ever played on an asphalt parking lot or in a school gym, then the Cougars would be ready to go. Unfortunately, grass and dirt are foreign to the players at this point in the campaign.
