A Mike Leach press conference wouldn’t be complete without one or two questions that have nothing to do with football.
On Monday, Washington State’s head coach was asked about the fan at Saturday’s 55-17 loss to Stanford in Seattle who was caught by TV cameras covering himself in popcorn.
“That guy’s awesome,” Leach told reporters while watching video of the fan on his phone at the podium. “I kind of felt the same way at the end of that game.”
A reporter then asked Leach about the fan’s technique, leading him down a road in which Leach discussed his wife’s and daughter’s skill at throwing M&Ms up in the air and catching them with their mouths.
If you’re only interested in quotes about football, Leach’s press conferences definitely aren’t for you.
