PULLMAN, WA - The Cougars are just four days into practice with full pads and the repetitiveness of teammates facing off against each other is starting to set in.

However, head coach Mike Leach has an idea to change that.

While it's unlikely that it will ever happen, Leach said he thinks that college football fall camps should be more like the NFL preseason.

"I've always thought you should be able to have a scrimmage or mixed practice with some other team, not unlike the NFL does," said Leach. "If the NCAA isn't comfortable with scrimmaging another team, I would think you should be able to have a mixed practice with a team you don't play."

Leach said his idea is usually met with what he calls a "befuddled" look.
