Mike Leach says Washington State didn’t give ‘clear message’ to defense during fall camp

UPDATED: Mon., Oct. 14, 2019, 8:55 p.m.

It isn’t that Mike Leach envisioned WSU’s defense giving up 143 points in three games, ceding 1,715 total yards of offense through the first third of the Pac-12 schedule or going 10 full quarters without causing a turnover. But, perhaps he sensed something wasn’t right when the Cougars were exhausting themselves in Lewiston during the doldrums of fall camp.

I’ve never believed that time (was possible),” said the Kenyan, whose mark of 2 hours, 14 minutes, 4 seconds eclipsed Paula Radcliffe’s previous record of 2:15:25, set at the 2003 London Marathon, as well as Radcliffe’s course record (2:17:18) set in 2002.
