HOT COUGAR ACTION: Mike Leach On The Radio

Besides his introductory press conference(s) we haven't heard a lot from Mike Leach. That changed a bit yesterday as Leach made an appearance on both 710 ESPN in Seattle and 700 ESPN in Spokane. The interview topics overlap a bit, but both are worth a listen. Topics range from his staff, current players, recruiting, practice structure and even some of Leach's thoughts on shopping malls.

1. Mike Leach, Washington State: There seem to be exactly zero people who think Leach is a bad hire. The reaction in Pullman could be described as euphoric, but that sells it short. Still, there is pressure that comes with euphoria -- see that old "too high or too low" syndrome. Folks expect him to work miracles. To me, 6-6 or 7-5 would be a successful 2012 season. Get the feeling some Cougs expect to immediately take down Oregon.
