Washington State Football: Why Cougars Will Surprise the Pac-12 This Season

After a lackluster 4-8 record a season ago, the Washington State Cougars will be looking to turn some heads this year.

The Cougs fired head coach Paul Wulff after the season and brought in Mike Leach, a favorable move according to many around the conference.

Leach reached a bowl game in each of the 10 seasons he coached at Texas Tech, and his arrival in Pullman brought lofty expectations.

Perhaps unfairly, Leach has been coined to resurrect the WSU team and raise them from a bottom-dweller to a bowl-caliber team.

His first year will be a transition year, yet Cougar fans should be excited at the prospect of Leach coming to work with an already talented squad.

The Cougars will surprise some teams next season, especially if those divisional foes count on seeing the easygoing WSU of years prior.
