This week I watched: 24/7 College Football, Washington State Cougars.
This HBO documentary covers one week in the Washington State Cougars college football season.
Of course, I am biased.
Mike Leach coached at Texas Tech while I was an undergraduate there.
Leach’s unique style of play under his “Air Raid” offense does something unique:
It allows smaller, less talent rich schools, to compete with larger ones.
By spreading the football field sideline to sideline, his teams are able to put large points on the board and force their opponents to score at the same rate in order to compete.
“We might lose.” We used to say,” But you’re going to have to score 50 points to beat us!”
Mike Leach is a football treasure.
