It's year three of the Mike Leach experiment at Washington State. Leach doubled the victory total from year one to year two and got the Cougars into the New Mexico Bowl, where they somehow lost a 22-point lead and the game to Colorado State. Washington State should be favored in its first three games. That would set up a Sept. 20 showdown against Oregon in Pullman.
Washington State's Mike Leach and Idaho's Paul Petrino could be on their way to becoming the new Hatfields and McCoys.
The coaches got into a small dustup after Saturday night's game, won by the Cougars, 42-0. In the top video, Leach shouts something at Petrino after a gruff handshake between the two. In the video after the jump, the coaches yell at each other, but it's difficult to understand what was said.
Staffs from each team then stepped in and the parties went on their merry ways.
The campuses are only nine miles apart and Petrino actually lives in Pullman. But here's the interesting part: Petrino is building a new house next door to Leach's residence, according to Vince Grippi of the Spokesman-Review.
