08:21 AM ET 03.22 | Heeee's baaaacckk. For the first time in a long time, people are going to pay attention to Washington State's spring practice. That's because the downtrodden Cougars have hired Mike Leach as coach, and where Leach goes, a high-powered offense, not to mention good quotes, are sure to follow. Leach takes over a program that saw its talent level gradually increase under predecessor Paul Wolff. The Cougars started 3-1 last season, leading to talk that a bowl bid could be in the offing. ... Leach has the makings of a solid offense. The Cougars were ninth in the nation in passing last season despite having to use three different starting quarterbacks because of injuries. Two of those, Jeff Tuel and Connor Halliday, return.

Especially if WSU has a punishment shed or the players have any fat little girlfriends.

Most people don't know how well Leach keeps his players in line because of his zany antics and the James situation. The FB program at Tech was pretty well run when he was there...and he still got canned. Now look at it.

Just hope that Lying backstabbing Craig James stays at 1%. Texas voters are not stupid and will never put a weak shyster in office.

Ever hear of Rick Perry?

Back in the 90's with Drew Bledsoe and Ryan Leaf as their QB's.

How bout 2003, when Davis thought Chance was a better option than Vince in the Holiday Bowl?
