@SeanHawkins Hawk, Leach was talking to Snark saying this was it for him winning of course.

@Sutra I was talking today with a distrught Husky friend and he was lamenting how tough it is to conduct a coaching search with all the instant social media. He said twitter was going crazy about a Peterson sighting. I also saw twitter reports of Petrino being sighted at Seatac. All of this makes me even more awed at how Moos kept a 007 level of secrecy on the Leach hiring. After reading the chapters in The System about what went on I am happy happy happy about how tight of a ship Moos and Flyod run.

Curse you Sutra,
You were right on with officiating and whether we would have to fight through heavy handed press coverage. Now bring on the bowl selection.

LB, Rockin the shaved head! I agree that Broadway Bill said it so it must be, right? Hawk, what I think I really have seen come to this team is CML's philosophy of next game, next series, next snap. This is what I hope CH has learned and will remember and the defense will adopt wholeheartedly. Focus on the individual task and what you have to do in the moment and we will win. The other thing that is encouraging is how last week the coaching staff has proven that they too have to learn. Leach had commented how he should have called some time outs during the Arizona game to break their momentum on offense and what did we see last week? Timely time outs! tomorrow we will see if the lessons I have seen the last two weeks can remember their lessons and not come out over hyped. If so I will be drinking celebratory Fireball shots not consoling shots!

Of course we're still hear. I loved the game plan yesterday. Now can we please have all the "We can't run, Leach won't run" talk go away. Imagine how much more we could do if Connor had a little more speed in his scrambles.

2-10 away from home since 2010 for ASU. Hooty is rolling his eyes at you Hawk.

I look forward to the Quacks coming to Pullman next year and hopefully without Mariota, who can bolt to the NFL. The hope I have for ASU is that we can treat it as a mini-bowl game with two weeks to prepare. Of course ASU has the same advantage but I really hope they are overlooking us.

@SeanHawkins @Stiffmiester Thanks Hawk! Now I had to download The System on iPad.

Leach won't switch to Apodaca. The two times as a HC he played rotating quarterbacks have not worked out. One year at TT he did this and almost had a losing season. Last year with the yo yo between CH and Tuel never allowed the team to get in a rhythm. I think also that the next QB to take the field after CH will be Bruggman not Apodaca. But we don't really know as Coach will make that decision and not let us influence his choice. On a positive note I was completely expecting a "Fat Little Girlfriends" presser from Leach. He did express frustration but there was no empty corpse comments. This leads me to believe that the team is continuing to adopt the Leach mindset and I hope that last Saturday was yet another learning moment
Funny how we have all started taking the Pirates attitude. This hit when you wrote about "explosives" and I didn't blink. This is a lexicon from Leach, I would have called them big plays before the Captain. One thing that people who point to the Beavers Oline getting their starters back forget is that it takes time to gel as a unit. This is one more big step for Connor too. If he can come out and not push too hard then Katy bar the door. I am just sooo glad we put the hurt on the Bears as now I have a whole year to lord that over my sister, an alum from Bezrkley! Go Cougs!

@Sutra @Stiffmiester I am neck and neck with the want to beat Cal. Not only have they a been a thorn in our paws for the last umpteen years, my Sister is a Cal grad and I don't want to hear it from her.

Bad Sutra on let down next week. Leach will not say it but he wants to beat Dykes BADLY. Dykes has taken several shots at Leach and you know the Pirate wants cut the "Bear Raid" down with his Cutlas. I have been encouraged by the comments this week not by the players but the way the assistant coaches are talking up how ready we are. Breske, Wilson and Big Joe have all hit the interweb with very positive reports while paying very serious respect for the Trees. I think that they have the club ready for what lays ahead. Even Coah Simmons has been talking more and I now know that he Gabe Marks are kindered souls. Our Cougs expect to win but are ready to do what it takes to get there. Now they just need to put the proof in my pudding. See I went a whole reply without bringing up gunslinger or INT. Dang it, so much for that.
@Jenkins Maybe that's why Leach offered Mayfield. Also he didn't look so hot against TCU and threw two picks. He rode the pine at the end when the winning touchdown was thrown. Kingsbury doesn't run the same offense as us, he is closer to the Oregon offense than the air raid. They look to establish the run first and then play action off of that. Same for Dykes. They both have gone more along the lines of Holgerson.

Nice GIF work! I can't believe the numbers that Halliday has put up. He metioned that the rough start was due to his focusing on that first play from scrimmage. Let's just hope that he gets last play amnesia from here on out because when he is on it is a thing of beauty.

Numbers nerds! What about moxie or that elusive Hooty number, being a Coug QB? I really feel that Manion should be -12 on the list. He might have put up gaudy numbers against Forget College School (FCS) that beat you but still couldn't get the job done. I for one feel that the Mutts win over the donks was waayyyy overrated. This sin't a good team. Price can look great at home againt an overrated team but lets wait and see how the mutts do on the road ( loss). Goff should look like a Super star by now. Buuuuttttt, we all know that the Air/bear raid takes some adjustment. Just don't see them doing great or good against a real defense (Cal loss). Utah? Meh. We will see when the game rolls around.

Ahem.. Polynesian Posse! I have screaming the same message about stiffling the bring in the back up chorus over the last three days. I feel that with the next two games the team can focus soo much more on execution, timing and scheme that it will show up starting at the Clink game. The season through the first four games equates to having a week 14 and 15 game in the NFL and then playing your preseason games. The next two weeks are, in my opinion, critical for the possible bowl hopes. Crack down and work on the fundamentals and playing with speed and accuracy and we can play past the regular season. If we get lazy and take the wins for granted and the mental gains we have made could backslide when we hit challenges in conference play.

Funny that you brought up the huge hit CH took on that throw to Cracraft. I remember watching that hit and seeing him get up a little gimpy. First thing I said was watch out he is hurting and will now go lock on to one guy and chuck it. As far as the under thrown passes goes, Connor was running for his life and almost every pass was thrown off his back foot. Like Leach said he settled down in the second half and managed the game pretty good ( read no INT's). with two weeks of less pressure to work out the wrinkles I am ready to see if CH can get more comfortable in his Air Raid role at QB.
