It would have been hard to convince all but the oldsters in the audience that these two rural neighbors were once kindred spirits.

The only thing that had Saturday's Battle of the Palouse feeling like a rivalry were the choice words the two head coaches had for each other in the post-game handshake.

First there were last-minute fireworks between Mike Leach and referee Michael Batlan, resulting in a well-earned 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty… Batlan's field microphone was still on after he announced the penalty and he could be heard saying to another official "you heard what he said, right?"

Idaho Vandals Coach Paul Petrino runs over to WSU Coach Mike Leach and shakes his hand and runs away. Moments later, words are shouted and Coach Leach appears to say "I don't have a problem..." before being drowned out.
What makes the postgame even more interesting is Petrino lives in Pullman and is, according to more than one Pullman insider, building a house next door to Leach's residence… None of this should take away from the performance of the Cougar defense.
