Mike Leach: Washington State Seniors Have "Empty Corpse" Quality

Mike Leach, coach of the Washington State Cougars, on the team’s senior leadership:

“I think with some it’s stellar . . . some of them have been great and some of them have been very poor. Some of them have had this zombie-like, go through the motions, that’s how it’s always been and that’s how it’ll always be.’”

“Some of them, quite honestly, have an empty-corpse quality,” he said. “It’s not pleasant to say or pleasant to think about, but it’s a fact, which is why it’s been necessary to have the youth movement we’ve had. We play a bunch of (redshirt) freshmen and true freshmen because we get a higher effort level out of them.”

The Cougars are 2-4, but still have an outside shot at getting to .500 and a bowl game. They’ll need to win the rest of their home games (Cal, UCLA, Washington) and one road game (Stanford, Utah, Arizona State). Enter pirate/booty reference here. [Sports Press Northwest]
