It’s a true underdog story. Little Washington State University, the fightin’ Cougs, taking on the world and succeeding by landing Mike F**kin’ Leach, head football coach extraordinaire. Inspirational? Yes. Improbable? Certainly. Insane? Basically.
The high school nerd doesn’t just bag the prom queen this easily. There has to be some crazy shit going on behind the scenes. Naked pictures may have been exchanged, blackmail may have ensued, we don’t know for sure. But what we can safely assume is that there has never been a more exciting day in Wazzu history than November 30th, 2011. Never. Imagine if the local John Deere store had a going-out-of-business sale. Or if Oroweat decided to work exclusively with farmers on the Palouse. Those are the only banner events that I could see creating more excitement for the Crimson-and-Gray faithful than what occurred on Wednesday.
