HOT COUGAR ACTION: Mike Leach On The Radio

Mike Leach has a well deserved reputation as a great interview and while almost all of his radio appearances are enjoyable, his appearance on the Mitch and the Morning show on Tuesday may have been his best interview yet.

Leach spoke candidly about a number of subjects and was his typical humorous self. My favorite quote came when Leach was talking about teams who try to win on one side of the ball and merely not lose the game on the other side.

"Well, we're going to win on offense and if they can just break serve on defense. No, baloney, go try to wreck those folks."
