Sad to say, it may be time to admit the bloom is wearing off the Mike Leach rose. Wazzou looked poorly coached on offense last night in losing.
It’s weird, in a way. The Air Raid scheme Leach pioneered is still going strong (just ask Lorenzo Ward about that). But Washington State isn’t really getting much traction. I suspect that being the third or fourth best program in Texas gets you access to better athletes than you get a shot at as the number two program in Washington.
It’s a shame, because college football is better off with a few characters in it. But Leach is being paid to win football games, not to be a character.
