Mike Leach calls Washington State players ‘fat, dumb, happy and entitled’ after ugly loss

first_img Three takeaways from No. 10 Notre Dame’s win over No. 18 Virginia Washington State coach Mike Leach, known to be outspoken, wasn’t holding back in assessing his players’ overall performance after the Cougars faced a 38-13 loss against Utah on Saturday. Leach called his players “fat, dumb, happy and entitled” following their second loss of the season. Mississippi State’s mascot Bully narrowly avoids disaster vs. Auburn Three takeaways from No. 17 Washington’s win over No. 21 USC Mike Leach post Utah https://t.co/xO5MAImtT5— Theo Lawson (@TheoLawson_SR) September 29, 2019Washington State gave up 526 yards as the defense struggled to stop Utah. The Cougars’ offense wasn’t nearly as sharp, either, as they had only 313 total yards. Quarterback Anthony Gordon threw for 252 yards, completing 30 of 49 passes with two interceptions and one touchdown. While the Cougars won against Northern Colorado and Houston to start the season, they gave up a 32-point lead in the third quarter last Saturday while playing UCLA that resulted in a 67-63 loss.  “We’re a very soft team,” Leach told reporters (via ESPN). “We get a lot of good press. We like to read it a lot. We like to pat ourselves on the back, and if we get any resistance, we fold.”Leach continued: “I think we’ve got a bunch of free agents running around there that think they’re pretty special, and then as soon as something doesn’t go their way, they want to pout.” Related News “Last year’s team was a tough team for us. We got nearly the same guys. Then all of the sudden they’re not tough. They’re fat, dumb, unhappy and entitled,” Leach said.Washington State dropped to 0-2 in the Pac-12 and 3-2 overall with Saturday’s loss. The Cougars have a week off before facing Arizona State on Oct. 12.last_img read more
