Mike Leach is once again a big hit on the internet as ESPN and Yahoo both gave him props this week. Yahoo Sports has been posting “cafeteria” memes with the most interesting people from pop culture and sports sitting at different tables and asking fans which group of three they would like to sit with.

Coach Leach is placed at table #1 with LeBron James and Ellen DeGeneres. Essentially each table has one coach, one athlete and one celebrity. Across from Leach is a table with Tom Brady, Snoop Dogg and Joe Maddon for example. Even a non-Cougar fan would have to admit the Table 1 is pretty awesome.

ESPN College Football twitter got in on the fun as well.

These lunch tables have a legendary coach, player and mascot. Leach is at table 6 with Baker Mayfield and the Florida Gator. What a fantastic pairing! We have to ask though: Where is Butch?

Huge week for the Mike Leach and WSU brand which can lead to more good things.
