MIKE LEACH RUMORS & GOSSIP

Wazzu fell despite amazing effort by Connor Halliday

Connor Halliday totaled 532 yards and 5 touchdowns of offense and could not beat Rutgers. I do not recall the last time the Cougs won a game at Century Link Field in Seattle. The Defense is the main reason WSU could not win the game. In just about any other game where you pass for 500+n years and 5 TD’s you come away with an easy win. Coach Leach will have to look at beefing up...

Mike Leach Says “Eff U” To Idaho Coach Paul Petrino

Washington State vs. Idaho is a rivalry that only exists because the schools are eight miles apart (as a WSU alum, I will clarify: it’s a dark, twisty, two-lane highway that feels about three times longer than it actually is).
