After losing the apple cup For the seventh consecutive time at the University of Washington on Friday night, Washington State Football Coach Mike Leach was in no mood for reporters' questions.
During his press conference after the Huskies beat their Cougars 31-13, Leach noted that the media was always quick to point out that Washington was one of the top 10 recruiting teams and was surprised when it won.
When Spokane Spokesman-Review columnist John Blanchette went on to ask if Washington State should defeat teams with high-ranking recruitment classes, Leach pointed out that he did not care what the reporter thought.
"You mouth your little spine and things like a shrewd troll," he said. "You have never been fair or impartial to us, so I really don't care what you think."
"Okay, go ahead," he added, "because you'll write some really nasty things, as you always do. And I don't know what Coug was a while ago when something offended her, and I don't know. They really care about that." But you can live your little life in your little hole and write nasty things, and if it makes you feel quiet, go ahead. ”
