When the typical college football coach uses Twitter it's to announce an upcoming football camp, thank the fans, or make grunting sounds to celebrate a recruit. Mike Leach is not your typical college football coach.

If you follow Leach on Twitter you likely know he's a big movie buff. He's tweeted about movies he enjoys before, but he's now taking it to another level. Late Monday night, Leach Tweeted he'd come up with a list of 50 movies that "command attention."

Mike Leach is still the best.

I personally find it unlikely that the air-raid system will flourish at WSU, and see them continuing to be the pincushion of the North.
