As big as the Mike Leach hiring was, It was met with some criticism, with some pessimism thrown in for good nature.
How un-Washington State like is this hire? Talk about bucking the norm.
I recently heard a great interview on Sports Radio KJR with WSU Cougars new head football coach Mike Leach.
Pretty classic Leachism's flying around.
Check them out.
Here's the clip
“One night we were just trying to get familiar with the town, so my wife and I had gone to a movie. So we drive downtown and I’m just curious where my team and charges are hanging out. There’s nothing downtown. Downtown’s dead,” Leach said in an interview with KJR sports radio.
“So we drive up College Hill. As we’re going up College Hill, shoot there’s mini-skirts and hot pants everywhere. So I ask her ‘what’s the temperature?’ I go, ‘It’s gotta be pretty warm out there, huh?’ Thirty-seven degrees! Thirty-seven degrees!
“I don’t what’s in the water and exactly how tough these people are. Certainly they didn’t need jackets to be necessary at 37 degrees.”
He's talking about college girls hot pants and skirts with his wife, and then chattin about it live on the radio.
Long live the Pirate!
BEST OF MAXIM
Oh Mike Leach, how we have missed you and your delightful outlook on life and college football. From your "Fat Little Girlfriends" speech to you unnatural (and possibly unhealthy) obsession with pirates, you give us all such joy in our lives when you go off script. Take for example the latest gem from the Washington State head coach, which comes after some enterprising...
If you’re not familiar with the story of U.S. Senate candidate Craig James, it really is quite a tale of scandal, intrigue and unbridled arrogance. Just to catch you up to speed with a dummy’s version – James was a talented running back and attended Southern Methodist University in the heyday of the program’s paid player scandal, and his NFL claim to fame was being ousted...
Former SMU running back and ESPN broadcaster Craig James is running for a senate position in Texas and addressed his notorious conflict with Mike Leach by calling the Washington State football coach a “bully” in a recent video.
James became eternally despised when it was learned he teamed with a PR company and used his position at ESPN to help get Mike Leach fired as head football...
Cornerback William Gay of course signed with the Arizona Cardinals this past weekend after five seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers and he joined John Harris on Trib Live Radio to talk about his time in Pittsburgh and the opportunity he now has ahead of him in Arizona.
Late in the interview Harris asked Gay if the money was the real reason he chose to sign with the Cardinals instead...
PULLMAN — Day Four of Mike Leach's first spring season at WSU was eventful on and off the field. A few bodies were missing Thursday, including one -- touted Spokane tight end Aaron Dunn -- who won’t return. The defense continued to put smile on defensive coordinator Mike Breske’s face, and d-line coach Joe Salave’a decided to line up with his players and show exactly...
They say March comes in like a lion, and goes out like a lamb. If you’ve been following the Arizona Cardinals’ free agency endeavors, this saying has hit home a little too close.
As detailed last week, the Cardinals entered the month of March and the free agency period excited about the prospects of adding former Indianapolis Colts QB and future Hall-of-Famer Peyton Manning...
Offensive guard Deuce Lutui's time as a Cardinal appears to be over as he recently met with the 49ers and has other visits set up.
The offensive line has been a source of consternation for the Cardinals for most of Ken Whisenhunt's five seasons in Arizona. Will this season be any different?
The dust has settled and Peyton Manning is a Denver Bronco. The Cardinals are ready to move forward with Kevin Kolb and John Skelton, but will losing out on Manning haunt Arizona?
PULLMAN -- The construction on the football field this spring, as Mike Leach and staff install a new offense and defense, isn't limited to between the hash marks. A closer look at Martin Stadium from the CF.C lens...
The Cardinals found a replacement for CB Richard Marshall, RB Ryan Williams continues to rehab and more inside.
Happy Friday Cougs, and happy last weekday of March (or is it SMARCH, what with this crazy weather we've seen lately? I know I've used this picture before, but wow, Lousy SMARCH weather). Anyway, there's a lot to get to in the Coug universe, with a ton of recaps, interviews, and news-n-stuff. So continue on after.....
First, yeah, this has been getting...
