HOT COUGAR ACTION: Mike Leach Meets The Press

You know football season is getting close when coaches start their weekly press conference. Mike Leach held his first of the season Saturday and like most Leach interviews the subject matter was wide ranging. Christian Caple transcribed Leach's answers in his blog post, including the story on how he met his wife.

And of course you'd go there and they'd be watching MASH or something like that and I'd change the channel to watch Gunsmoke. Can you imagine watching MASH or even Saturday Night Live when Gunsmoke's on? It's almost sacrilegious to anything American and I tried to get them back on track, which I think I did successfully. Sharon was a bit of a tough case so I had to marry her where I could keep an eye on her a lot more frequently.

You can see the entire press conference in the video below.
