One of the half dozen or so searches I do everyday for this post is a Google news search for "Mike Leach." Leach is extremely popular, so I'm never sure what will pop up. While doing the search late Saturday night, a link from the Omaha World-Herald popped up.
Apparently, Leach is in town for a banquet so the World-Herald interviewed him for a Q&A. A lot of the questions have a Nebraska or Big 12 theme, but with any Leach interview, the answers are wide ranging. Apparently when Leach isn't shredding opposing defenses, he's getting private comedy shows in the houses of musicians.
World-Herald: With which Nebraskan would you most want to spend a day fishing: financial guru Warren Buffett, screenwriter Alexander Payne or comedian Larry the Cable Guy?
Mike Leach: I'd have to say Larry the Cable Guy. I had the opportunity to meet Larry the Cable Guy at Toby Keith's house one time.
Hanging out with him, just talking to him, he is even more hilarious than his act. Just a blast. We laughed solid for like two hours at least. And we'd never met.
If you have time today, you should really check out the rest of that Q&A. Leach goes on to talk about searching the Internet for six-toed cats. Once you're done reading, you can also vote in the College GameDay contest.
