Mike Leach Is High On Wazzu QB Connor Halliday: "He's Better Than Your Guy"

The Pac-12 is an offense-heavy league with some of the nation's best quarterbacks. Oregon's Marcus Mariota and UCLA's Brett Hundley are Heisman contenders, while guys like Arizona State's Taylor Kelly and Oregon State's Sean Mannion are quality players. Washington State coach Mike Leach certainly knows quarterback play, and he is high on his quarterback Connor Halliday. In fact, he doesn't really seem to care about how good the signal callers on other teams are.

Halliday feels similarly about Leach, as a coach.

Halliday had a decent year last season. He threw for a ton of yards—4,597—and had 34 touchdowns, though he was turnover prone with 22 interceptions, and his 6.44 yards per attempt was fairly pedestrian. If "our guy" is referring to someone like Mariota or Hundley, we'd probably go with them, but we always appreciate Mike Leach being Mike Leach.
