I don’t know if you caught this among the rest of last weekend’s craziness, but Washington State managed to beat Utah with this unusual stat line: 13 rushing attempts, zero rushing yards.
I’ll let Dean Wormer do the math for you.
As you might expect, Leach was unconcerned about that, to the point of dismissal, using it to make a point he’s offered before.
“There’s nothing balanced about 50% run-50% pass, ’cause that’s 50% stupid. What is balance is when you have five skill positions and all five of them are contributing to the effort in somewhat equal fashion — that’s balance. This notion that if you hand one guy 50% of the time and then you throw it to a combination of two guys the other 50% that you’re really balanced. You probably pat yourself on the back and tell yourself that. People have been doing that for decades. Well, then you’re delusional.”
That sound you hear is the 2010 Mike Bobo throwing his crayon box.
