Want to hear Mike Leach talk about Breaking Bad and make a vague CougCenter reference? Of course you do.

He is the one who talks.

This was mentioned in the comments yesterday, but it's worth it's own post. Mike Leach has been making the media rounds recently, discussing WSU's bid for the New Mexico Bowl. That included a stop on the Pac-12 Network. Leach didn't talk about the bowl much, however, instead using most of the time to analyze the television series Breaking Bad.

If the embedded video doesn't play, here is a link.

Leach didn't start watching the show until a marathon leading up to the finale allowed him to record all 61 episodes. He's not exactly known to be a technology guy, so I picture him swapping out VHS tapes every eight hours to record the series. Leach said people showed him pictures someone made with Leach's face super imposed on Walter White's body. That's crazy. Who would do such a thing?

Oh, right ...

Before we get to the rest of the links, Nusser joined the Mountain West Connection podcast on Thursday to discuss WSU and the New Mexico Bowl. Jeff hops on around the 23 minute mark.
