Happy Sunday Cougs, and an even better Sunday after a late-night Coug W in the Palouse! Here's hoping you enjoyed last night's blowout win, wherever you happened to be (and those of you at the game, yes, I'm jealous and would have loved to have made the trek. I will be there next Saturday in Seattle though, and I can't wait to see this team in person).
Quite the post-game fireworks last night, hmmmm? I wish the cameras would have stayed with it a little longer but they quickly cut to the end of the thrilling UCLA-New Mexico 59-13 finish....but it sure looked a little rough at the end there between Paul Petrino and Mike Leach.
What's kind of interesting is that if you watch the Youtube clip, you can see Leach tries to say "good game" as they embrace. But Petrino totally "Harbaugh'ed" the handshake and he definitely said the wrong thing. Granted, Leach was hot towards the end of the game and there were reports during the radio broadcast that Leach had to be held back from the refs after arguing against a penalty call late in the game, which isn't really something we've come to see from our head coach? I guess that's one thing I know I've noticed anyway, that he's usually rather stoic on the sidelines aside from some funny faces here and there. But I like that he showed some fire there, and it's probably part of something bigger that's going on around this here football team - the days of taking SH*T from the opponent are over, win or lose!
On to some quick thoughts on the game last night, post Sunday morning run style...
