Today I think its important that we all take a step back and look at our current coaches behavior and how it is being perceived outside our crimson bubble of unquestioned Mike Leach worship and adulation. The consensus? Not necessarily in favor of our new coach:
Look, I don’t like Marques Wilson walking out on his teammates, and I am not advocating a return to Paul Wulff, so lets just put that aside. I am, however, very concerned that our coach is going out of his way to make Ed Cunningham look like a genius. That doesn’t mean I don’t support the team, or I have a loser mentality, it just means that I am actually paying attention. The current situation this team finds itself in, suffering embarrassing losses, having physical confrontations in the locker room, and star players quitting the team, may just be the necessary growing pain we have to endure to achieve eventual...

Washington State is having a tough season. We knew that Mike Leach was taking over a tough job but with reports of mutiny and a 2-7 record(0-6 in conference) things are getting weird out there in Pullman.

OVER THE PAST several weeks, Washington State coach Mike Leach has publicly criticized his football players. The Cougars are 2-7 and deserve criticism, but coaches typically yell at their players at practice or rip them in private. They don’t berate them in front of the media.
WASHINGTON STATE COACH Mike Leach reiterated that accountability begins with him and his assistants during Tuesday’s teleconference. He discussed that, the balance between criticizing – and lifting – a team that has an 11-47 record the last five seasons and an emerging wide receiver.
Where to Begin?
The tumultuous season the Washington State Cougars have had was recently given an exclamation point with a 49-6 ass-kicking from the Utah Utes.
The Cougars came out flat, continued to play flat and ended the game flat, adding another loss to a six-game skid under Mike Leach, and assuring the new head coach his first losing season.
There is no longer optimism in the...
PULLMAN – The absence of All-American wideout Marquess Wilson is already taking a toll on some players and coaches. And while head coach Mike Leach didn’t have much to say on the matter, wide receivers coach Dennis Simmons took a more emotional approach. Oh, and Travis Long is the Cougs’ new punter – at least for today.

JUNIOR WIDE RECEIVER Marquess Wilson could be the 18th scholarship player by Cougfan.com’s count to leave Washington State since Mike Leach took over, but the coach could not confirm that during his Monday teleconference. Leach declined to speculate on whether the Cougars’ top wide receiver will return, although Leach’s precedent does not look promising for Wilson.
