HOT COUGAR ACTION: Fall Camp Has Arrived

Technically fall camp won't arrive for another nine hours or so, but who's counting? We've already seen Mike Leach take the field during spring practice but fall practice just seems more exciting. We are now 24 practices away from an actual football game.

Leach was named WSU head coach 247 days ago and now we only have to wait 28 more until he coaches his first game. Fundamentally, fall camp won't look much different than spring football did. There will be a few new faces, but as Brain noted in the Google hangout last night, the nuts and bolts of practice will never change.

The Cougs take to Rogers Field at 2:45 p.m. PT today. If you haven't been playing attention, you still have a few hours to catch up on everything you need to know about fall camp.

If you still aren't excited for fall camp, just think it won't be long until this guy is doing things like this again.

Mike Leach is funny when you asked him which Pac-12 coach he'd like to take hunting. He's funny you ask him to compare his team leaders to famous military generals. He's funny when you ask him about his affection for pirates. Heck, Leach is funny -- and often insightful -- about a variety of things. He's just not going to tell you much about his football team.
