Washington State coach Mike Leach is always an interesting quote. So it would
figure that following the Cougars’ big upset victory over USC on Friday night that he would have some interesting things
to say. As always, Leach didn’t disappoint.
In an interview with ESPN, Leach compared the atmosphere at Martin Stadium to Woodstock, with one exception.
Washington State (5-0) had not beat a top 5 team since 1992, when Drew Bledsoe was the quarterback. You can imagine the
pure jubilation in the crowd as the Cougars outlasted the Trojans 30-27.
Leach also had an incredible halftime interview in which he tapped into his inner Gregg Popovich. When asked how his team
would deal with USC being considered a second half team, Leach only said, “Well, so are we.”
