Give Mike Leach a microphone and whatever comes out of his mouth is going to be gold. I know it, you know it, even the casual college football fan knows it. The final day of the Pac-12 media session in Burbank, Calif., was no different for Leach. In addition to some actual football stuff -- recapped here -- these are just a few of the things we learned:
- Arizona head coach Rich Rodriguez shared a hilarious story about Leach that included a lagoon and a speedo (no, really)
- Leach tried to punch open a pinata and had to be held back by Jeremiah Allison
- The Cougars don't spend enough time at the Palouse Ridge Golf Club
- Jeremiah Allison and Joe Dahl shouldn't be allowed in the dress up box anymore
- Leach sometimes acts like Jesus

Although his post game pressers can be awfully dull and sleep-inducing, Leach is far and wide one of the most entertaining figures in college football.
