Video: A Wazzu GA gets in Leach's grill pleading to go for two and the win against Oregon


Against Oregon on Saturday with eight seconds left, and down seven, Mike Leach and Washington State scored to close the gap to 31-30. That left Leach with the decision whether ride the momentum they had gained and go for two and the win in regulation, or kick it and head to overtime.

As Leach is pondering the monumental decision, one of his grad assistants came up to him to weigh in, holding up two fingers standing directly in front of him and clearly telling Leach "GO FOR TWO" over and over again.

You can literally see the wheels in Leach's head as he weighed what was best for his squad.

Go for two, or whatever...

Ultimately, Leach decided to kick it and play for overtime, which ended up playing out in his favor as Washington State scored on a crazy play in the second OT (see that play below) which was followed by the Cougar defense keeping Oregon out of the end zone to seal the win.
