Mike Leach's name has been in the media a lot lately, thanks in part to a few recent stops on the radio and other places. The latest came Wednesday when Leach joined 1620 AM The Zone in studio. The entire interview is a little over 20 minutes long and worth a listen, but I'll recap the topics below.
- The interview starts off with some Big 12 and Nebraska talk.
- They move onto Leach signing "CJK5H" and discuss the weirdest thing Leach has ever signed.
- Next, they talk about Leach's path into coaching and the development of his offense.
- They briefly discuss WSU and if Leach thinks he can make an immediate impact.
- Leach spends a significant chunk of time talking college football playoffs and outlining his ideal plan.
- They discuss the debate whether or not college football should be banned. Leach said, "I would have massacred those people. I would have loved to been part of that debate." He didn't actually mean he'd kill them, but "massacre" them in debate form.
- Finally, they ask Leach his thoughts on Craig James' senate campaign.
