PULLMAN – Washington State's offensive line has been the culprit most identified this season when…
Leach rips Cougs' lack of effort
"Our effort today was pitiful. It starts with our coaches. Our coaches, starting with me and starting with the assistants, we have to be able to reach our players and get a good effort. Square one is a good effort and our effort was horrible. We've had games this year where one side of the ball had a bad effort for a quarter or something, then this side had good effort and the other one didn't, but we had a bad effort on both sides of the ball for all four quarters."
On if his team took too much satisfaction in last week's performance -
"We still lost the game, last I checked. If we're taking satisfaction from last week, we're out of our mind. Not one play last week counts for this week. Right now we're a team that doesn't give a good effort, which means that all of the stuff that we do in the weight room and in the meeting rooms and practices is a waste of time if we don't give a good effort. So, we're going to be working on that this week."
"I can't fathom, on any level, how you work at anything and then just come out and not try. It doesn't matter what physical condition a person is in, how old, how young, anybody is capable of a great effort. So, anybody's capable of it. The fact of the matter, today, we refused to give it."
On if Utah confused you with more man coverage today than they had shown recently -
"No, not really. We've seen a lot of man. Utah's a good team and deserves a lot of credit. They're not that good, we're not that bad. Despite what the score was they could have beat us by 100 today."
On his offensive line's pass protection -
Our five couldn't whip their two. Sometimes they only brought two. Our five couldn't whip their two. Which means, if five of our guys went in an alley and got in a fight with two of theirs, we would have gotten massacred. That's just ridiculously inexcusable. It was one of the most heartless efforts up front I've seen; and our defensive line wasn't any better.
