With Apple Cup Week here, it was a great time to catch up with former Washington State quarterback Ryan Leaf on Schooled with the Professor.
Leaf was the perfect Cougar to discuss the Cougar-Huskies rivalry. He remembered his first start being against the Huskies in 1995. In great detail he takes us through the three-year process of getting the Cougars to the point in which they could beat the Huskies. In 1997, the Cougars, with Leaf at quarterback, beat the Huskies and won the PAC-10 title and a trip to the Rose Bowl.
Leaf gives a great scouting report about Luke Faulk, whom he respects for his toughness and leadership. Ryan gives an incredible breakdown of the differences of the offense he ran for Mike Price and what Mike Price is going with the Air Raid in Washington State. Leaf also told us he might have better served himself by staying at Washington State for one more year as opposed to turning pro early.
