Happy Friday Cougs, as your old pal Victory Bell is back for some "observations" to share with you. As usual, we at WSU Football Blog hope the week is winding down in a positive light for you, wherever you are. And hey, if it was a rough week for you? RAISE YOUR GLASS, because it's FRIDAY!
Like many of you in the Coug'verse, Victory Bell went out and grabbed the book that all Cougs must read right about now, and of course I'm referring to Swing Your Sword by Mike Leach. Many of you have no lives so you have already read it by now.....but Victory Bell is kinda/sorta chugging through it before I turn out the lights after yet another busy day. Anywho, it's been an extremely compelling look into the mind of a guy who has been described as a loose cannon weirdo to a doctor-evil style football super-genius!
Of course, the truth is usually somewhere in the middle, and that seems to be the case after you get a good look at w...

Just because we’re a few months late posting this article that raises an issue that’s been an issue forever doesn’t mean we’re not talking about one of the most offensively...
New Washington State football coach Mike Leach has announced the rest of his coaching staff, adding former Montana assistant Mike Breske as defensive coordinator.
Leach made the announcement Friday night. Breske has spent the past two seasons as defensive coordinator at Montana and previously coached at North Dakota State and was the defensive coordinator at Wyoming from 2003-08...
Days after Washington State coach Mike Leach announced Montana defensive coordinator Mike Breske would join the Cougars staff in the same capacity, Wazzu sent out a release finalizing Leach’s coaching staff — some of which were already known. New to the Cougar staff will be Breske, Jeff Choate (linebackers), Jim Mastro (running backs), Clay McGuire (offensive…

I have no idea what Tom Heckert is thinking nor does anyone else at this time when it comes to the NFL draft. One thing I do know is the Browns could sure use the services of a good wide receiver. Justin Blackmon in my humble opinion would sure look good in a Cleveland Browns uniform. This kid seems to have all the tools needed to compete in the NFL.
WSU Head Football Coach Mike Leach announced Friday he has completed his coaching staff.
Bill Smith, host of News, Notes and Rumors on Moohead radio composes the following letter.
Dear Mr. Holmgren:
We are the long suffering diehard fans of the Browns. Despite filling the old Browns stadium every home game, we lost our team. Since we got the new Browns back in 1999, we have suffered through losing season after losing season. We have seen coaches, GMs, and top...
The first of the offseason… sigh.
Hot Cougar Action… I bet Mike Leach is gonna hear that phrase more than he wants.
Nice presser, Dabo.
Fire Nick Saban!
Don’t sleep on Missouri, SEC East fans.
The NCAA may not be able to figure out what to do about the $2000 athlete stipend, but there’s no problem with the Mark Emmert contract extension. Figures.
Zach Mettenberger on being...
Many wanted to laugh at the Raiders’ new GM Reggie McKenzie for firing the coach, Hue Jackson yesterday after one season of 8-8 football. From where I sit it looks like it could be entirely reasonable. Granted, a lot will depend on who the Raiders hire and what they do next year, but given our own experiences with the Browns and Mike Holmgren, it doesn’t look totally crazy...
IT’S THE FIRST official visit weekend for Mike Leach since he was named Washington State’s head man. And by the looks of it, it’s a big one with double-digit recruits touching down at Wazzu...
Yesterday Tom Heckert spoke with Dustin Fox and Adam the Bull on 92.3 FM for nearly 30 minutes. Certainly that was far more than he spoke when he and Mike Holmgren held a dual presser together at the end of the Browns season. I thought the Bull and the Fox did a good job asking pretty pointed questions even if they didn’t get many answers. They asked about Colt McCoy, Peyton...
Good afternoon, Followers. Hope you're gearing up for a great weekend.
Well, in his first act as Director of Research and Development at the WSU Football Blog, our very own Longball dug up an incredible gem. So, if you want to read about it....well, you're going to have to click on the jumperoo..
Well the news all the news that's fit to print can be found...
It’s not like we’re unaware of the questionable decision making at Maryland of late – passing on Mike Leach to hire Randy Edsall to replace Ralph Friedgen, watching the program decline precipitously in Edsall’s first year and hiring the baggage-encumbered, über recruiter Mike Locksley as the new offensive coordinator.
Given what Locksley brings to the table, I guess a sort...
GREEN BAY, Wis. — For someone who already has delivered as many Lombardi trophies as Mike Holmgren, the Packers’ current head coach still is a mystery guest outside of Titletown.
And even within this football-obsessed hamlet, Mike McCarthy didn’t exactly prompt euphoria or visions of an immediate return to glory...
