Washington State coach Mike Leach

Duncan’s Kiss

Terrelle Pryor

This story just dropped before publishing Hot Clicks. What we have so far:

From Adam Schefter on Saturday morning:

Thanks for watching!

“Former NFL WR Terrelle Pryor underwent surgery this morning and is in critical condition after being stabbed last night at his Pittsburgh apartment in the shoulder and chest, per source.”

And from Pittsburgh’s Action 4 News:

“Police were at the Heinz Lofts apartment complex on Saturday morning. Sources tell Pittsburgh’s Action News 4 a woman is in custody at Pittsburgh Police headquarters in connection with the stabbing. Her identity is not known.”

Josh Shaw Busted

First, who’s Josh Shaw? Unless you’re a USC or Bengals fan, you probably don’t know Josh Shaw, a fifth-year cornerback who went undrafted out of USC in 2015 and hasn’t appeared in an NFL game since eight unnoticeable appearances with the Chiefs and Bucs last year. He’s currently on the Cardinals’ injured reserve.

Sour Apple

Mike Leach’s first recruiting class as Washington State head coach in 2009 ranked ninth in the Pac-12, one spot ahead of dead-last Washington. Since then, the Cougars have never finished above their in-state rival off the field, finishing an average of 5.4 spots behind the Huskies in the Pac-12 recruiting rankings. On the field, over that time, Washington State is just 1-10 against Washington, dropping their seventh straight Apple Cup on Friday night.

After the game, Leach pointed to recruiting as a potential reason for their Apple Cup struggles, which led Jon Blanchette of The Spokesman-Review to ask the obvious follow-up question: “You’re not supposed to beat teams that have higher-ranked recruiting classes?”

Leach didn’t appreciate it, berating the “sanctimonious troll” Blanchette.

Photographer Alleges Assault

From the Honolulu Star-Advertiser:

“A Honolulu Star-Advertiser photographer said he was assaulted at last week’s University of Hawaii football game and suffered injuries after being shoved by the head coach and then knocked to the ground by a UH employee.

“The attacks were confirmed by others, who spoke off the record.
