Washington State Coach Mike Leach Blasts SEC Offenses


Mike Leach is not going to be on the good side of the SEC anytime soon.

The Washington State coach mentioned the SEC in an interview with The Clarion-Ledger. Leach over the years has taken flack for the way he runs his offense and its results, so he didn't hesitate to talk about the others' methods.

"This is a great time to be in the SEC," Leach said. "Everybody's got the same offense: run right, run left, play action. And they tease themselves and say we threw it four more times a game this year that we did last year."

The SEC talk didn't end there. 

"First, it becomes it won't work," Leach continued. "Second, they basically say oh it's a system, suggesting that people who don't do it that way, who just run it up the middle, stick all your a**es together so one hand grenade can kill everybody, that's the right way to do it. Since they do it the right way, they're ok with the fact they lost."

Leach and the Cougars had a streaky season, so it may not be the best time to speak on the offense of others.
