7 months ago Update 3 comments
WSU football coach Mike Leach just finished up what was a long, rambling and apparently somewhat bizarre press conference in which he did address the situation with suspended wide receiver Marquess Wilson. There should be full video at some point, but in the meantime, here are the comments that are directly relevant to Wilson's situation, via Brian Floyd, who was at the conference.
Leach on Wilson: "I do know that he's suspended. If he left the team, that's his decision."— Brian Floyd (@BrianMFloyd) November 5, 2012
Leach on what he'd do if a player walked out of practice: "I'd cut him"— Brian Floyd (@BrianMFloyd) November 5, 2012
Leach said Wilson is suspended this week and left it at that— Brian Floyd (@BrianMFloyd) November 5, 2012
Leach left open the possibility of return, but said that was between he and Wilson— Brian Floyd (@BrianMFloyd) November 5, 2012
New info here? First, Wilson's out for at least this weekend. Second, there's a possibility for return for Wilson, despite Leach's "I'd cut him" comment. Is this a Sekope Kaufusi-style "open to return"? Who knows.
More as it develops.

After a flurry of activity surrounding the suspension of Marquess Wilson this morning, Bill Moos' appearance on Cougar Calls was going to be an interesting one. Here's what Moos had to say about Wilson's suspension.
Moos: "Marquess is suspended. I'm not sure for how long or where that all is going to settle."— Brian Floyd (@BrianMFloyd) November 5, 2012
On his way to Spokane to be on Cougar Calls, Moos says he was on the phone with Marquess' father.
Moos said he talked to Wilson's father on the way to Spokane and had a "nice visit with him"— Brian Floyd (@BrianMFloyd) November 5, 2012
Moos also got right behind his coach when it comes to the tougher treatment players have been receiving this year.
Moos: "The way you get tough players is with tough coaches. There's some tough love going on. It's not brutal punishment.— Brian Floyd (@BrianMFloyd) November 5, 2012
Moos would then go on to tell a tale of a more legendary Cougar packing up his things and leaving and Bob Robertson's old booth partner having to chase him down.
Moos remembers Mark Rypien getting in his car after practice and driving to Spokane. "Jim Walden had to go get him"— Brian Floyd (@BrianMFloyd) November 5, 2012
(Ed. Note: the thought of Jim Walden chasing after me is downright frightening) Moos actually admitted he knew this first season would be rocky but didn't talk about it publicly.
Moos: "I knew and did not emphasize it at all that it was going to be a struggle in the first year and maybe the second year."— Christian Caple (@ChristianCaple) November 5, 2012
Moos didn't have Leach's back entirely though. When asked about some of Leach's post game comments, he noted doing it publicly may not be the best way.
Moos on Leach's "empty corpse" type comments: "Certainly there’s a place for that and perhaps it’s not at the podium in postgame."— Christian Caple (@ChristianCaple) November 5, 2012
All in all, Moos seems to be 95 percent behind Leach, minus his misgivings with the "empty corpses" comment. On the plus side, Moos mentioned a four star receiver coming to visit this weekend which is encouraging.
Leach will meet with media at 1:00 p.m. today. I can't imagine what they'll talk about.
