IN ONLY SIX months on the job, Mike Leach has seemingly become the most interviewed coach in Washington State football history. Yet in the mountains of media attention he's attracted, there's one question -- a very straight-forward one, in fact -- that appears to have gone unasked. Until now.

Leach dishes on playoffs, concussions & James

WHAT IF MIKE LEACH wasn’t a football coach but instead a commissioner – what if he was in charge of making changes to college football’s postseason. Leach would institute a playoff but it wouldn’t be of the plus-one, 4-team or even 8-team variety. A 16-team playoff? A 32-team playoff? Nope. Think bigger.

Williams antsy to show game-breaking skills

TEMPE, Ariz. The ideal Sunday for many Americans was hell for Ryan Williams. Unable to play last season after rupturing a patellar tendon in a preseason game against the Green Bay Packers, the rookie running back had a front-row seat in coach Ken Whisenhunts suite for the Cardinals' season opener against Carolina. He hated the view. I just stopped going to games, Williams...

Offseason important to Kolb's bid to remain QB

Finally, Kevin Kolb gets to spend a summer in Arizona. Forget the discomfort of the triple-digit surroundings. The quarterback is getting his first offseason workouts with the Cardinals, and he and the team hope this means a smoother, less pressurized performance in the coming season. Kolb acknowledges that he puts added pressure on himself to live up to the five-year, $63 million...

Forecast NFC West: Arizona Cardinals

Earlier we took a look at the Seattle Seahawks and what we expect from the team this season. Next up on the NFC West list is the Arizona Cardinals… Arizona This is another team that played far better down the stretch in 2011, mimicking Seattle’s run after an awful start to the year. They were 7-2 in their last 9 games including a win against the 49ers and shaky, but talented...

Craig James polling at just 3% in Texas Senate Primary!

Today is election day in the Texas Senate primary and the prospects for former ESPN analyst/bane of Mike Leach existence Craig James don’t look too promising. Yesterday, Craig James was polling almost as popular as  “Undecided” and better than  “Other.” James was receiving 3% in the polls; which is less than the 4.5% margin of error. Therefore, James could actually be...

First-year coaches: Predicting their 2012 records

With guys like Mike Leach, Rich Rodriguez and Jim Mora getting back on the sidelines this fall, it's easy to see why so many fan bases are excited to get things started again in the fall. But how do you evaluate their success since most of them are taking over programs that have hit rock bottom? Each one will go through a transition period, even John L. Williams at Arkansas...
