HOT COUGAR ACTION: An Assortment Of Links

The WSU men's and women's basketball teams return to the hardwood tonight for the second week of Pac-12 play. The men take on Utah and Craig will be along with a preview later today, but until then we have an assortment of links including more reaction to the Pac-12 schedule release and a Mike Leach interview.

First, Leach joined the 110 Sports podcast where he discussed a variety of topics I have not previously heard him talk about.

You can listen to the podcast via the link below, Leach comes on around the 9:45 mark.
