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

Quote: “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!
