PLAYERS: Mike Leach
TEAMS: Arizona Cardinals
So since WSU Football is all "Mike Leach!" these days, and for the forseeable future, it's probably a good idea to try and learn about the Air Raid offense.  You know, Leach's calling card, the spread 'em out and throw it all over the yard scheme that puts up yards and points in bunches?  Yeah, that offense will be on full display in Pullman this fall. We have at least seen a sneak preview already, from the WSU spring game.  But sort of like the Dark Knight Rises trailers that are pretty much everywhere right now, the spring game is like a 2-minute tease to wet the appetite, and most importantly, leaves you wanting much, MUCH more! A few of us were talking about trying to get detailed/geeky over the Air Raid, and maybe at some point this summer doing a post about the details of the offense, the evolution of Leach and his coaching tree, etc.  But guess what??  You're in luck, because SMARTFOOTBALL.COM has launched a fantastic read on all things Air Raid/...
