Leach Calls Wazzu Seniors ‘Zombie-Like’
Kansas’ Charlie Weis is not the only FBS coach apparently fed up with his seniors and willing to express it.
At his weekly press conference on Monday, Washington State’s Mike Leach was asked about the veteran leadership on his team, which sits at 2–4.
“Some of them have been great and some of them have been poor,” Leach said. “Some of them have had this zombie-like, go-through-the-motions, that’s how it’s always been and that’s how it’ll always be.”
“Some of them, quite honestly, have an empty-corpse quality.”
Ouch. And it’s not just talk to fire his upperclassmen up. USA Today’s Paul Myerberg says that this week’s projected starting lineup against Cal features only three seniors.
Time will tell if Wazzu’s seniors get the message and wake up from their stupor.
