team favored by 2 tds wins!!! wow what a shocking outcome.

Nice headline. Though in the future, I'd expect that Wazzu's program will be pointing upward as Tech slowly creeps back into obscurity.

You could see that the schemes were resulting in open WRs. The QB was just missing the reads or holding the ball too long. Considering Washington State was a 4-8 team this seemed a promising opening to be honest. You can build on it. Washington State didn't appear overmatched, so much as just sloppy and all that. Be interesting to see what Leach is doing by the end of the season and once his recruits have reached sophomore and junior level.

Relegation's too good for 'em!

"If you really wanted to see us play well," Leach said afterward, "you should have been there for Monday's practice." He went on to say "Not a game, not a game, not a game. We talkin' 'bout practice."

Isn't that more to be up and then to lose?

/realizes the Cougs have been a worse-than-terrible football program for a while now.
//will be going to their Seattle game this year

At least the players can go back to their fat little girlfriends.

The "More" links includes "one-platoon system"...this is of questionable relevance to the article but it's and interesting Wikipage.

Is this the exceptionally rare "all of the above" headline?

Mocking a team who has had, what, 10 wins the past 5 seasons? That's pretty pathetic subbsie since he was set up by a known college cheat.

You have to work pretty hard to get Mike Leach to be the good guy, but I'll be damned if Craig James and Co didn't do it.

Good news is Kingsbury had a similar outing for his first game under Leach.

He turned out alright...

BYU is a pretty good team that rarely loses at home.

I was hoping for more but I'm not worried yet.

pretty damn strange... even after Leach was banished from the butthole of Texas, Adam James didn't seem to get anymore playing time. Which was the actual stem of James' anal rage.

Complete lack of a run game. No rush over 3 yds. Even if you're charitable and remove Tuel's -18yds from the team stats, they still only managed 13 yds on the ground. You're not going to climb out of the cellar without a run game. And Wilson needs more than 4 catches if the Cougs are going to have a shot in any game.

ha-ha-guy: Washington State didn't appear overmatched,


Yes they did. Their front 7 is garbage and aside from Wilson their receivers aren't very good. Their O-line is a sieve too. They aren't going to be good for a few years at least.

Why are you bringing up Big 10 schools in a WSU thread?

Leach is like every other coach, he's a mean dick trying to make an example of a malcontent, I have known quite a few coaches who do this kind of shiat so to say its unique to him was crazy for the James. Maybe he didn't kiss their asses like others did and Craig has only himself to blame for coddling his little biatch kid.

I'm going to watch the Penn State game. It should be like staring at a car wreck.

Yes, you are correct. The true definition and use of "Couged it" is to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

I was just practicing.

Hey I'm giving Eastern Washington University a fair shot of winning the game down in Pullman next weekend. They took it to the Vandals yesterday (yeah, yeah I know it's Idaho but still...). They've got another SMU QB who looks legit.

Go Eags!

You didn't just make my sports PTSD kick in or anything. There was a point in time where my siblings and I quit answering our phones with "hello", and instead said "I hate Billy Gillispie".

Appears not. This is end all of sports for the month of August on Fark

Just because Mike Leach is coaching in the Paloose, does not mean that WSU are automatically going to be winners.

Fark you ESPN!
