HOT COUGAR ACTION: Monday Morning Links

New, 5 comments

It's the first Monday of the off-season and predictably, it's light on news. The WSU baseball team was rained out Sunday and the football team doesn't hold another spring practice until Tuesday. I did, however, do some YouTube searching and found a video which may be of some interest. If you remember, Mike Leach was the color commentator when the Cougars played at SMU in 2010. The highlights (from Sean Hawkins at wsufootballblog.com) feature briefs snippets of Leach's analysis, including notes on Jeff Tuel and Marquess Wilson.

There are also a couple outstanding Leachisms including one about the quarterback hitting the tuba player in the face.

Some of the most interesting analysis comes near the end of the video when Leach breaks down Tuel following at touchdown pass.

"And he throws the ball pretty good. The one thing they could do to help Tuel is move the pocket a little bit with designed plays and get it on the outside. And I'm referring to down the road, because you have a good quarterback there and you have a talented guy. He's a dropback guy, not a runner. But at some point in games down the road, guys are going to tee off on him unless they can attack the perimeter quick and get those defensive linemen running right and left."
