Washington State's Mike Leach rips team following huge loss: 'We're a very soft team'

Washington State head coach Mike Leach ripped his own players following Saturday night’s loss to No. 19 Utah.

Leach and the Cougars have lost two straight following the 38-13 defeat handed to them by the Utes. He did not mince words as he described the Cougars as “fat, dumb, happy and entitled.”

“We're a very soft team,” Leach said. “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.”

The loss against Utah followed the 67-63 defeat handed to them by UCLA just a week prior. At that time, Washington State was up by as many as 32 points in the third quarter before the Bruins’ furious comeback.

“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,” Leach said.

He added: “We weren't even close. I think that at some point they have to embrace the effort themselves.”
