Hello Followers.  Hope you’ve had a good end of your weekend. As for me?  Well, lots of stuff has hit the fan since this four word post hit the interwebs on Saturday night..So, for a last word, read on. +++++ Unfortunately, I don’t have a lot of time to give you the 10,000 word break down that I’d like, so we’ll just aim for a shorter version of the “truth.”   So, here it is….. First and foremost, when Colorado scored to make the game 31-21, I looked at Little Sutra and said in matter of fact fashion, “Son, we’re about ready to lose this game.”  And as the seconds wore down on the entire debacle, all I could do was laugh.  Simply put, the way that the whole thing went down made it all  just too ridiculous for me to get really upset.  And so my reaction was as follows:  Who fricking cares anymore?

Leach wants 'cookie crumbling' vibe to go

STAY POSITIVE. That is the message Washington State coach Mike Leach is emphasizing after Saturday's stunning 35-34 loss against Colorado in the Pac-12 opener at Martin Stadium.

Hot News for C Mike Leach

After Buffalo stampede, reality sets in

WHEN MIKE LEACH was hired to coach Washington State, many saw him the savoir that would fix the program that once tallied three 10-win seasons, and couldn’t crack 10 wins – total – in the last four years.

Starting signal-caller set for Saturday?

PULLMAN -- For the first time since fall camp began, Washington State coach Mike Leach named a starting quarterback early on in the week. On top of that, a critical offensive lineman returned Sunday night, a player who wasn’t even listed on the depth chart as recently as two days ago.

Why Do We Fall?

"So we can learn to pick ourselves back up again." Good morning Cougs (and I say good morning, not because it IS a good morning but because I wish it was).  We can dispense with the pleasantries today for obvious reasons - yesterday's loss was an all-timer, wasn't it?  I have been a Coug fan since watching Mark Rypien run the Jim Walden offense back in the...

The 2012 Cougs need to channel Jason David

THE FIRST 90 SECONDS of Mike Leach’s post game press conference were both fascinating and illuminating. They told you everything you needed to know about why WSU lost to Colorado and sit at 2-2. And it leads to one inescapable conclusion -- the 2012 Cougars need to channel Jason David.

Oregon-Washington St. Preview

Offensive masterminds Chip Kelly of Oregon and Mike Leach of Washington State are set to meet for the first time. It's Kelly's defense, however, that is gaining in notoriety after its best performance of the year.
