WSU scholarsThe Cougars posted a team grade-point average of 2.66 during the fall semester, which a WSU spokesperson said is the highest since the school began keeping records in 1980. Leach thinks it can be higher. He also went on a tangent. “Happy about it, but we talked about this: if everybody got one grade higher, if the whole group got one grade higher, we’d probably lead the nation. That’s more within striking distance than a person would think. I’ve been a part of it three times. If you get somewhere between 2.9 and 3.0, 3.0 and change, you’ll lead the nation in the public institutions. The privates? Who knows what kind of mischief they’re up to. I mean, they hide their books and everything else, so they’d probably be a little more forthcoming if they weren’t hiding something. So I think they warrant suspicion.”
