HOT COUGAR ACTION: Wrapping Up Pac-12 Media Day

Tuel and Long are obviously working on their staring skills so they can challenge Reggie Moore when they get back to Pullman.

I wasn't writing the linkpost at the time of the 2011 Pac-12 media day, but I'm going to go out on a limb and say there weren't as many Washington State related links last year as there are this year.

As three different headlines linked below said in some fashion, "Mike Leach stole the show." Leach was the talk of the media sessions and was also the focus of several stories. The LA Times covered media day and the lead of the story wasn't USC or even UCLA related, it was all about Leach.

While Leach may be in the headlines, Jeff Tuel was also at media day spoke to Scott Enyeart after the media session.
