The Washington State Cougars have their team scrimmage this Saturday, April 22nd, at 5:00 PM Eastern. You can watch it on the Pac 12 network.
The NCAA Tournament field has been announced. Baseball season is right around the corner. College football season is six months off. For sports fans, every year is a rotating buffet of compelling competitions.
Washington State head football coach Mike Leach always has interesting analysis on football. Yet, he is such an insightful individual that we thought we would bring him back to comment on the beginning of the Major League Baseball season, as well as March Madness. Coach is currently on his Spring Break vacation in Key West, where he spends time during the offseason.
The college football bowl season is here. This coming Tuesday, Washington State head football coach, NY Times Bestselling Author and CYInterview regular Mike Leach’s team will take on the Minnesota Gophers, out of the Big Ten Conference, in the Holiday Bowl. The game will take place in San Diego, California at Qualcomm Stadium.
This will be the second time in his career that Mike will have a team playing in the Holiday Bowl. In 2004, while head coach at Texas Tech University, his team defeated the California Golden Bears 45-31. Being a veteran of the Holiday Bowl, Coach Leach tells us all about what people should know about the game, tells us why he wants his school’s in state rival Washington to win the College Football Playoff and reveals some of his upcoming New Year’s Resolutions.
During this 2016 college football season, few programs have won eight consecutive games. In the power conferences, one of the best stories of the year is Washington State. Currently the only undefeated program in Pac 12 Conference play, Washington State head football coach and CYInterview regular Mike Leach has the Cougars moving in the right direction.
The Cougars are ranked in the top 25 and are on the verge of having one of the most memorable seasons in the program’s history. With two regular season games left, Colorado and at home against Washington in the yearly Apple Cup, there is a chance for them to play in the Pac 12 Conference Championship. A conference championship could lead to the Rose Bowl and even, perhaps, a shot at being in the College Football Playoff.
Over the years, Washington State head football coach, NY Times Bestselling Author and CYInterview regular Mike Leach has discussed with us a variety of interesting topics, beyond those that arise in relation to the gridiron. Our latest chat with him was no exception.
Of course, we discussed football. Then, Coach Leach gave us his predictions for the 2016 Presidential Elections, his thoughts on political correctness in America and his viewpoint on what the future of technology holds, including robots and self-driving cars. Additionally, he shared a story about how a man lost his legs and subsequently became a success. And, in this wide ranging, not to be missed conversation, he discussed even more things. You will certainly want to listen.
Coming into his fifth season as the head coach of Washington State, Mike Leach is riding a wave of success that the Cougars have not seen in more than a decade. Last year’s 9-4 campaign, with a Sun Bowl win, was a rare season of accomplishment for his football program. This year will focus on whether his team can compete for a Pac 12 crown and take the next step.
On Sunday evening, six days before the first game of the season, between studying football film and practices, NY Times Bestselling Author, 2008 College Football Head Coach of the Year and CYInterview regular, Mike Leach joined us to talk about his thoughts on his 2016 team.
One of the best stories in college football this year is that Washington State head football coach, NY Times bestselling author and CYInterview regular Mike Leach took his team to the next level in the Pac 12. The season brought many positives that included impressive road wins at both Oregon and UCLA. Finishing the season at 8-4, the Cougars accepted an invite to play in the Sun Bowl on December 26th against the University of Miami.
We welcome back Coach Leach to talk about the season, the upcoming bowl game and when he might write another book, as well as discussing movies he has seen recently.
As the college football season begins this week, Washington State head football coach and CYInterview regular Mike Leach is getting ready for season four with the Cougars. The NY Times Bestselling Author is excited to get his players and staff on the field.
We had a chance to preview his team’s upcoming season, but it would not be a Mike Leach conversation without discussing a variety of other topics. Coach tells us about his summer trip to Europe, to watch American football, gives his thoughts on everything Las Vegas, from buffets to gambling, and talks about his friend Matthew McConaughey’s upcoming movie on the Civil War. Additionally, he reveals two of his favorite movies from cinema history that he believes everyone should see. The two movies are Something Wild and The Last Seduction. You will have to listen to the audio to hear why.
As a child, Washington State head football coach Mike Leach had a fascination with American history and more specifically, Native Americans. As a kid, on his first trip to the library with his mother, the NY Times Bestselling Author selected a book on Geronimo. His mother ended up reading the entire book to him.
Earlier this year, Coach Leach released a book, with historian and journalist Buddy Levy, on the Apache warrior titled Geronimo: Leadership Strategies of an American Warrior. The book is full lessons on goal achievement and leadership. With 2015 upon us, Geronimo makes a good book to start the New Year with.
