3. Mike Leach on Washington State’s Week 7 performance
It seems like we could make a top-five Mike Leach quotes list each week. The Washington State head coach has been a quote machine this season, and it’s good for football. He doesn’t hold back when the media questions him, and that’s what college football fans deserve.
Washington State had one of the worst showings of any college football team in Week 7, and Leach knew it. When asked what positives he could take from the loss to Cal on Friday night, he was about as real as a head coach could be after a shocking upset.
“There’s no bright spot. We were pathetic. You know, we were a bunch of pathetic front-runners,” Leach admitted.
That’s not something you usually see out of a head coach, but Leach is cut from a different cloth. He tells it like it is and clearly, he saw what everyone else watching the Cal vs. Washington State game witnessed as well. The Cougars played timidly and that led to a major upset.
Leach didn’t just talk about his team playing horribly, but he also gave Cal credit by saying that the Golden Bears’ effort far overshadowed his team’s. Looks like it’s going to be a long week of practice.
