Leach: The run game is like horse racing, you want value

Publish date:

After struggling in the run game against a senior heavy BYU defensive line (gaining -5 yards on 16 attempts), Mike Leach was asked after practice yesterday if he had a specific target in mind for rushing yardage.

After pointing out that yards per carry is a more important statistic to him, and that they led conferences in that statistic during many of his previous coaching stops, Leach noted that they want good value out of run plays, similar to betting on horses.

Makes sense.
