Believe it or not, WSU and ASU coaches did shake hands amid 'bullshit'

THIS PICTURE certainly doesn't paint a thousand words -- at least not accurate words. The photo above of WSU coach Mike Leach and ASU coach Todd Graham shaking hands following the Cougars' victory in Tempe looks to be pretty standard post-game stuff.

But if you happened to listen carefully to the Pac-12 Networks feed before they switched back to the studio, you know this was no friendly exchange.

For those living in a cave this past week, here's a quick catch up: Leach was fined $10,000 for making a few quips to reporters about Arizona State's well-known penchant for stealing the signals of opposing teams.

With that as background, we'll let these two CF.C tweets tell the tale about why the photo above is so misleading.

OF NOTE: By beating the Devils in Tempe, the 2016 Cougars join special company in WSU lore. In the past two decades, only two other  WSU teams have won in Sun Devil Stadium: the 1994 Palouse Posse and the Jason Gesser-led club of 2001.
