Washington State coach Mike Leach famously questioned the toughness of his offensive linemen after a loss at Utah last November, while forcing each of them to attend a postgame news conference. Leach now is pointing to previous recruiting deficiencies as the issue, as he said this week during the Pac-12's media teleconference wrapping up spring football.

"We're still thin and we're still small," Leach said, observing that four of the five projected starters were originally walk-ons.

In Leach's second season at WSU, the Cougars will host Utah on Nov. 23.
