Washington State football coach Mike Leach is not a fan of the current College Football Playoff system. The Cougars finished the season with a 10-2 record and being co-champions in the Pac-12 North Division. However, that was not enough to land Washington State in the College Football Playoff, with the Cougars coming in at No. 13.
That led to an epic press conference from Leach, who went on an exhausting rant about an expansion of the current system.
You can check out Leach’s ten-minute rant below.
Of course, there are alternative reasons for why Leach wants the expansion.
From The Spokesman Review:
$200,000 for a College Football Playoff semifinal appearance. If he wins a playoff game, $300,000. Win the national championship and it’s $400,000 (these numbers do not stack).
$50,000 for being Pac-12 North champions, or $100,000 if crowned Pac-12 Conference champions.
$100,000 for making the top 10 in the national rankings, or $50,000 for being ranked in the top 25.
$25,000 for being named the Pac-12 Coach of The Year, and an additional $50,000 for National Coach of the Year.
$15,000 for a ranking in the top four in Pac-12 public school graduation rates, or $25,000 for taking the crown.
For now, Leach will have to prepare his team for an Alamo Bowl appearance against Iowa State on December 28 at the Alamodome in San Antonio.
