Coming off a win, Mike Leach was in fine form on Monday during the media session.

Mike Leach is known for interesting tangents during interviews. Early season losses didn't exactly put him in the most playful mood with the media, but the Utah win appears to have eased things up a bit. Leach was back at it on Monday, going on a nice little rant about modern technology and how it will one day be the downfall of the human species. Here is the tail end.

That's mostly a rant about smartphones and the ways people use them, but there is a little dating advice in there as well. Leach giving dating advice is nothing new. He did it at Texas Tech and has done it at WSU. Kevin Trahan of SBNation.com used the latest comment to put together a guide to Mike Leach's advice to dating.

Full video from Leach's press conference is in the links below.

Mike Leach faces a former disciple this weekend in California coach Sonny Dykes, who was a wide receivers coach and co-offensive coordinator under Leach at Texas Tech. Dykes, who was a graduate assistant at Kentucky when Leach was an assistant coach under Hal Mumme, has applied many of those same Air Raid principles while constructing the "Bear Raid" offense currently run by the Golden Bears.
