By now you have all heard of the class that Mike Leach has been hosting for students in Pullman called “Insurgent Warfare and Football Studies” and I’m sure the thought “I can become a student again for a semester” popped into your head at least once. Well, good news for those of you that only dreamed you could attend a class that is taught by the Pirate - the final class of the five week session will be open to the public.

A total of 220 lucky Cougs well get to attend the class in person on Friday at 7:30 pm while those of us who are not able to make the trek over on Friday will have the opportunity to watch the class online - both in person and online viewing will be free.

The class, which is developed by Leach and former State Senator Michael Baumgartner began in March and was open to roughly 40 students. In order to register for the class the students had to submit two essays that were no longer than 200-words with one answering the question of “can the British strategy in the Malaya insurgency be used today?” and another one about whether or not the wishbone offense is viable in the NFL today.

The class will kick off a weekend of football in Pullman as the 2019 Spring game will be held in Martin Stadium Saturday at 1:00 pm. This is the first time since 2010 that the game will be held in Pullman and not at Joe Albi stadium. Tickets for the spring game can still be purchased here.

Those looking to attend the class will have to register online on the Global Campus website and those that are wanting to watch online can do so here on Friday.
