It's a bye week, so Washington State didn't have its usual press conference. However, Mike Leach was in Spokane for the typical luncheon on Monday, in which he typically breaks down a bit of film and talks to alumni about the state of the program. This, of course, means stories.
The best story to come out of the luncheon was as follows:
Funniest thing out of @Coach_Leach luncheon? #TylerBaker has a wolf in his apartment and teammates sometimes call Baker Wolfy. #GoCougs— Derek Deis (@DerekDeisKXLY) November 10, 2014
@JessamynESPN Yep. Said it tears up his apartment. Teammates used to think the wolf was really cool, but now they're a little leary of it.— Derek Deis (@DerekDeisKXLY) November 10, 2014
That's Tyler Baker of 1-1/2 touchdown (we're counting the one blown dead as a half) fame from this past weekend. He apparently picked up a pet wolf at some point, and the wolf isn't quite house broken. Baker and his wolf live with Gunnar Eklund, and it appears the wolf isn't quite housebroken as it tears up the apartment at times.*
*We're not sure it's a full-on wolf or a mix, but hey … wolf!
