A Reminder Of Just How Bad It's Been The Last 4 Years

With the Mike Leach era set to begin tomorrow, excitement and expectations at WSU are higher than they've been in a very long time.

While I'm in the group who expects Leach to be a game changer in Pullman, that doesn't mean I've forgotten just how bad it has been over the last four years. So, before we go forward and kick off this new era, let's take a moment to remember just how low the low point was.

The play in the video below sticks out to me as one of the worst during the recent 9-40 stretch. They were going to use this clip in the movie the Blindside, but the director didn't think an audience would actually believe a defense could be that bad.* It could easily have been set to Benny Hill music, but the appearance by Bomani Jones just fits so well.

Here's to hoping that play does indeed signify the low point and everything is sunshine, lollipops and rainbows from here on out.

*That may or may not be true.
