WATCH: Mike Leach compares atmosphere in Pullman to Woodstock following upset win vs. USC

Mike Leach-Washington State-head coach-Texas Tech

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.”

Never change, Mike Leach. Never change.
