Washington State(1-1): Won over Eastern Washington, 24-20. Mike Leach gets his first win as the Washington State coach. However, Eastern Washington still had a chance in the fourth quarter. This does not make Washington State look impressive. However, the title of Pac-12 member helps voters think BYU’s win over Washington State was significant. One interesting item from this game was Kicker Andrew Furney, the only Washington State Cougar to score during last week’s game in Provo, booted a 60-yard field goal. The kid has a leg.

PAC-12 PLAY still is a week away, but Washington State coach Mike Leach already is fielding questions about which quarterback he will start Friday night at UNLV (TV: ESPN) – and beyond. Leach discussed that issue, the 60-yard field goal during Saturday’s 24-20 win against Eastern Washington and much more during his Tuesday’s Pac-12 coaches conference call.

Greetings Cougs, and a happy Monday to you and yours.
So, thoughts on Saturday's squeaker vs. the Eags? It's kind of hard to know where to begin, but, I'll take a stab at a few thoughts anyway.....
1) Consistently Inconsistent - That seems to be the general theme right now. I caught Mike Leach on the post-game radio show, and he said several times that there...
AS FANS, we are big into comparisons. Washington State vs. Washington. The SEC vs. the rest of college football. The BCS vs. the bowl system. And an inevitable comparison figures to come up Friday when Washington State travels to Las Vegas to face the Rebels at Sam Boyd Stadium. That is, Mike Leach vs. Paul Wulff.
