After the cougs lost to Boise State coach Leach was
furious with his team noting that the Cougs outplayed
Boise in many categories except, toughness.
And compared them even to a fighter who destroys the
bag in practice but yet when he gets in the ring,
he couldn't throw any punches.
Today, Coach Leach not walking back those statements
whatsoever, instead doubling down and challenging
his team to find an edge.
I don't care what they say.
You know I really don't care.
I mean we taught all this stuff and we get the concerned
expression, the heads nod and the bodies don't move.
I really don't care what they said I care about what
me and my coaches are going to tell them.
That is all I really care about.
There is not going to be a lot of, this week in particular,
there is not going to be a lot of indulgence in what
they say but there better be one hell of a lot on
what we say.
because this buisness of you know pretending we are
playing hard and we are not and pretending we playing
as hard as our opponent and we are not, no there is
going to be a price to pay.
There is defintely times during the game where I felt
like we weren't as physical as them and that is on
nobody but the players ourselves.
That is kind of a mental thing of where you got to
say I am not going to be out physicalled on this play
and you got to take that approach to every single
play fo the game you can't have it be OK, this play
we are going to be good.
You yhave to take that approach to every single play
of the game and you can't have it be this play Ill
be good next play I'm not so I think mentally we have
to evolve on that.
So this Saturday inside Martin Stadium muight be a
tone setting game for WSU.
They not only need to find some toughness but find
their way into the win column as well as they host
the Idaho Vandals.
