If there is one thing I've learned about Mike Leach it's that even he can run out of stories. It's not uncommon to hear a radio host, announcer or interviewer comment on the story teller Leach is. That is true, but when you listen to every interview he does, you hear a lot of the same stories over and over.

The same can said for his press conferences. He has a few go-to comments that he'll use every time. In same cases the reporter on the other end is hearing it for the very first time. In others, I'm sure Jacob Thorpe has heard Leach say "we had good effort" 10,000 times.

The Orange Country Register recently transcribed a Leach interview. You all follow WSU closely, so let's see how well you can finish Leach's thoughts.
