It’s been reported that Washington State receiver Marquess Wilson has been suspended, although Christian Caple of the Spokesman Review said he’s hearing that Wilson might have quit.
Wilson’s apparently had enough of Mike Leach. By now, you know how Leach brought in his offensive linemen to talk to the media following Saturday’s 49-6 drubbing at Utah. “It was one of the more heartless efforts I’ve seen,” said Leach, who is making $2.5 million to coach — and apparently humiliate — his players.
Leach took some of the blame after that game. “It starts with our coaches, with me in particular,” he said.
Mike, as bad your coaching was on the field, your behavior off of it was boorish and far worse than the performance any of your player turned in. That’s not a good message you’re sending, especially to potential recruits.
Closer to home, it’ll be another late game for the Washington Huskies. The Pac-12 announced Monday that the Husky-Utah game on Saturday at CenturyLink will start at 7:30 p.m. and be televised by the Pac-12 Networks.
It will be the eighth game with a 6 p.m. or later start this year for Washington. The UW had just one afternoon game (Portland State) at home this year. Saturday’s game will be Washington’s finale at CenturyLink as the team returns to renovated Husky Stadium next year.
I understand how much money is involved in the new Pac-12 contracts, but does anybody like these late starts?
