Once football season ended, I planned to transition the Monday morning trivia questions to basketball, but how could I not have a Mike Leach themed question today?
During his time at Texas Tech, Leach coached teams AVERAGED 36.9 points per game. Today's first MMTQ is, how many seasons has WSU averaged at least 36.9 PPG?
Texas Tech averaged at least 30 points per game in nine seasons under Leach. The second MMTQ is, how many seasons has WSU averaged at least 30.0 PPG?
Both of today's questions are worth 10 points. Up to the second standings:
Wazzu-Hondo - 70
Blackie1829 - 67
BigWood - 55
SoCalCoug - 48
Coug999 - 43

"What do you think of the Cougars' new football coach?" I was asked the other day. "Well, they certainly created some buzz with that hire," I said. "They got buzz," the man replied, "and baggage." True, dat.

Cougs are relevant again: Washington State's hiring of Mike Leach gives the program instant credibility. He's a top-20 coach who knows how to win without elite, across-the-board talent. The Cougs were already taking steps forward the past two years under Paul Wulff. Wulff collected talent that can be competitive in the Pac-12. Leach immediately puts the program back into the North Division discussion.
