Professor Leach?

During the 2018 season, the Mike Leach said that he wanted to teach a class at Washington State.

Well, we draw closer to that being a reality. On Tuesday afternoon, the Cougars’ head football coach tweeted out the course schedule for five days his class — “Insurgent Warfare and Football Strategy” — will be in session. The first of the 90-minute classes is March 27; the last is April 23.

For those wondering about the teacher-coach balance, the Cougs begin spring ball on March 21 and will end April 23. The spring game is on April 20.

It makes sense, football and war share a similar language. Many of the terms we use for football are taken from war. The battle in the trenches, deep bombs, blitz and of course, Air Raid.
