SEATTLE (AP) Mike Leach could see what was coming. The mistakes were building one after another, the eyes were getting wider and No. 20 Washington State was on its way to getting run off the field.
The Cougars ended their stunning turnaround regular season with a collective thud.
"I've been on both sides of kind of floodgate games. Fortunately I've been on the positive end of more of them than the negative end, but the thing is they're all the same," Leach said. "They're a deal that starts gradually and then it's a series of overcorrections. It's like fishtailing down a road or something like that. Then one thing leads to the next, leads to the next, leads to the next and that was us today."
