Leach: We played six offensive lineman every snap this year, that's a first for me

Asked about the biggest challenge that he faced this season at Washington State, Mike Leach noted a first for his coaching career.

"One of the most 'marathon' things that I've ever seen...I've never even heard of this really. But we had six offensive lineman take every snap that we did this year. Every one."

"Usually you do it with eight, which means that everybody's effort is cut by about a third. And then if you get the thing in hand, which we didn't get any in hand, then you play the seconds, and thirds." Leach explained.

"We had six guys play vitually every snap. So that was fairly challenging."
