Washington State Preview-The Pirates of Pullman
Walk the plank!! On second thought, lock him in the equipment closet for a couple hours-Mike Leach
Mike Leach is an intriguing dude, whom I actually like. He's quirky for sure, which we can blame on Hal Mumme, I guess. He obviously turned Tony Franklin into raving lunatic who lived out of his car for a while. It's just me personally, but I would rather wind up a pirate than a vagrant.
Leach is most famous for his spat with Craig James over Leach's treatment of James' son. Leach locked him in a broom closet for a few minutes, and Craig went all pony express postal. Leach got canned soon after and Craig ran for U.S. Senate with a campaign war chest full of money he got from boosters from when he played at SMU. I think Craig got like 3% of the vote.
As mentioned,Leach has a pirate obsession. Some guy from ESPN even wrote a book about him called Swing Your Sword. I have no clue as to why he has a pirate obsession. I wanted to dress up like a pirate for Halloween when I was 7, but I grew out of it. Who in their right mind would want to be a pirate? I mean, have you seen the way those Somali guys live? They look like they haven't eaten in months:
We Surrender! Now can I please have a sandwich?
Leach is a good football coach despite his obsession with raping a pillaging. I expect Washington State to be better than last year.
That being said, I expect Auburn to be much better in 2013 as well. Loaded with talent, this team just needs some leadership, that and remembering what it feels like to win. I expect to see lots of newcomers play Saturday night. I also expect we'll be talking about some new stars come Monday.
The Cougs passing attack gives us some trouble in the game, but Auburn's offense is a juggarnaut. Listen to me rave about the offense and we haven't even seen it yet.
By the time it's all said and done Leach will be begging for Davy Jones' Locker.
