Washington State head coach, and author of Swing Your Sword: Leading the Charge in Football and in Life, Mike Leach, has offered some interesting quips in the last few days!
In regards to the Ginger Hammer upholding the four-game suspension of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, Mike Leach had this to say:
"Give them an empty football and let them fill it however they want to. If your quarterback wants a deflated football, your soccer-style kicker is going to want it kind of full. If your quarterback wants it really full, your straight-on kicker is going to want less air in it. It's a regulation football; let them use it however they want to. You use your own ball."
Oh, but it get's better.

YOU HEAR THAT, KIM?!
Mike Leach also gave his opinions on the college football playoff. Increase the bracket to six or eight teams? CHILD'S PLAY. Mike Leach wants a 64-team playoff. And you should too, because Mike Leach is always right. From the horse's mouth:
"I don’t know why you don’t have 64 teams. The notion of pinpointing and selecting four perfectly, well that’s not going to happen. That can’t happen effectively. It would be indisputable that it was settled on the field and somebody that wins playoff games accordingly deserves to be champion and there’s no debate."
Bama and Ohio State aren't ready for the air raid, Mike.
Here's Leach discussing Republican Presidential Candidate, Donald Trump:

His cognizance is flawless.
Quite frankly, I couldn't care less about what Leach has to say about Cougar football. They're going to win two conference games because Washington State sucks now and will suck forever. I'd rather listen to Mike Leach give his analysis on the Battle of Stalingrad for two hours than hear him talk ball for ten minutes. The Cougars are in store for another disappointing season. But the life lessons they will learn from Mike Leach are far more valuable than anything taught on the gridiron. Mike Leach is the best coach in college football. And I'd follow him into battle any day; sword swinging and all.
Make sure to buy his most recent book, Geronimo: Leadership Strategies of an American Warrior.
