Oregon defensive coordinator Nick Aliotti was not a fan of Washington State's coach Mike Leach
continuing to throw the ball in the second half of Saturday's game despite trailing, 62-24, with 13:01 remaining. The result was Cougars QB Connor Halliday’s throwing a NCAA-record 89 pass attempts. Aliotti laid into Leach...
“That’s total (B.S.) that he threw the ball at the end of the game like he did. And you can print that and you can send it to him, and he can comment, too. I think it’s low class and it’s (B.S.) to throw the ball when the game is completely over against our kids that are basically our scout team.
“Make sure he knows that. Because I don’t really care.
“I am kind of stunned he would keep his quarterback and crew in there. And still he threw the ball with 20 seconds left. But he did. They want stats, they got stats. But we got the most important stat and that’s the ‘W’ and we are happy about that.
“I’m repeating myself, but again, in the end he’s still throwing at a time when most guys would try to end the game and go home.”
