Vasha Hunt-USA TODAY Sports The former WSU quarterback is looking to wow NFL scouts this weekend in Alabama Earlier this week we learned that Anthony Gordon would wear number 3 during the Senior Bowl this week in honor of his former teammate Tyler Hilinski. On Tuesday, we had our first chance to see Gordon and that number 3 jersey in action. Gordon, and the rest of the Senior Bowl North squad, had their first day of practice today in Mobile, Alabama. But before they hit the field, they were poked and prodded for the all-important measurements. Anthony Gordon: HT: 6-2 WT: 199 Arms: 31 3/8” Hands: 9 1/2” After that, it was time to meet with the media. Gordon talked plenty of football (and we’ll get to that later) but his Mike Leach impression was what garnered the most attention. On a more serious note, Gordon also talked with Theo Lawson of the Spokesman Review to cover why his jersey number change to honor Hilinski was so important to him. Gordon told Lawson via text message that he was “honored and privileg

The Washington State Cougars wasted no time replacing Mike Leach after he departed for Mississippi State. According to Bruce Feldman of Fox Sports, the Cougars will hire Nick Rolovich away from Hawaii to become their new head coach. Rolovich just finished his fourth season with Hawaii. He went 28-27 but steadily improved over his tenure there. He’s a Hawaii alum with deep ties to the university, so departing for Washington State probably wasn’t an easy call. Washington State will be hoping that Rolovich can keep building on what Leach was able to in Pullman. Perhaps he’ll bring along some of his unique disciplinary tactics as well, not to mention his even stranger media day shenanigans.

Mike Leach is known as much for his zany personality as he is for his successful track record as a college football coach, and he did not disappoint after taking the head coaching job at Mississippi State. Leach has been on fire with some of his tweets lately, so it comes as no surprise that he sent a perfect one after word got out about his new gig. Those of you who have watched a Mississippi State football game know how big the cowbell is for their fans. And those of you who are familiar with Will Ferrell know that his cowbell playing from the Blue Oyster Cult bit several years ago was one of his most famous moments on “Saturday Night Live.” Leach joining the SEC should be great for college football fans. As we saw with another one of his recent hilarious tweets, he has a very unique sense of humor that keeps you wondering what’s coming next. Now that he has an even brighter spotlight on him than he did at Washington State, that should be a good thing for all of us.

Mike Leach arrived in Starkville on Thursday as the new head football coach at Mississippi State. Earlier in the week, he was reported to be a candidate, along with Alabama offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian and Florida defensive coordinator Todd Grantham. The process that led to Mississippi State choosing Leach has not been made clear, but one factor that may have contributed to the hire was the positive social media reaction to the rumor associated with the former Washington State head coach. Steven Godfrey reported on Thursday that Mississippi State and other Power 5 schools used a firm this hiring season that monitored the social media reactions to leaked candidates. Godfrey says Leach received favorable reactions. Leach scoring high is no surprise considering he’s an accomplished head coach who has won at difficult Power 5 schools Texas Tech and Washington State. He’s also a funny guy, which definitely helps the public perception of him. But this nugget shows us a few things. One, when the names of c

Mike Leach appeared to remove his name from consideration for other head coaching jobs when he signed a contract extension with Washington State last month, but that was not the case. Leach has agreed to a deal to become the next head coach at Mississippi State, Pete Thamel of Yahoo Sports reports. Mississippi State reportedly offered its head coaching job to Joe Judge, but he was hired by the New York Giants this week. Leach and Steve Sarkisian were mentioned as possible candidates for the Mississippi State job on Tuesday, but the idea of them landing Leach seemed farfetched after he just inked a new contract with Wazzu. Leach has already proven himself as a successful head coach at both Washington State and Texas Tech. He is 139-90 in his career and managed to turn Washington State into one of the top programs in the country. Leach interviewed with Tennessee before they hired Jeremy Pruitt, so he has been pursued by at least one SEC school in the past. He has also expressed frustration in the talent gap be

Stunning college football news broke Thursday, as Washington State head coach Mike Leach will reportedly head to the SEC to coach Mississippi State. The news came as a shock because Leach just signed an extension with Washington State to coach through the 2024 season in the middle of December. Nevertheless, as we’ve seen so often in college football recently, the temptation of big money in a big conference was too sweet a scent for Leach to ignore. As the news of this reported hire circulated on social media, the sports world provided many sublime reactions. Here are some of the best. Many pointed to the coming Lane Kiffin-Leach rivalry that’s sure to develop. pic.twitter.com/rpyqy0plLJ— CFB Home (@CFBHome) January 9, 2020 Others were happy to focus on Leach’s unique mannerisms and supreme quote-worthiness. . pic.twitter.com/FDXm6EuXG3— Field Yates (@FieldYates) January 9, 2020 Buckle up, Bulldogs fans. You’re in for a wild ride.

Less than one month after he signed an extension at Washington State, Mike Leach is reportedly leaving to coach in the SEC at Mississippi State. Pete Thamel of Yahoo Sports broke the news Thursday. This news comes just one day after ESPN’s Paul Finebaum shared a report that Leach was in Key West this week for an interview. It’s a stunning development that will have a big impact nationally. Leach is known as one of the most innovative offensive minds in college football. However, he’s also known for being gimmicky, which should be put to the test regularly going against SEC defenses. From 2015-18, Leach led the Cougars to a 37-15 record and hit a high in 2018 with an 11-2 record and an Alamo Bowl victory. This past year, however, Leach’s team went 6-7 and was a major disappointment. Now, Leach gets a fresh start at a prime gig, while Wazzu has some work to do at a time when the top head coaches have already been taken.

Mike Leach is considered by many to be a national treasure, and some of the Washington State coach’s latest social media activity was a reminder of how he has earned that reputation. Leach is known for posting funny memes and videos on Twitter, but the one he shared on Thursday was among his best. We’ll let it speak for itself: Leach, who has a bizarre sense of humor that some are confused by and others find endearing, has been on fire lately. He also posted a great meme this week about women not finding him attractive. There have been times in the past where Leach may or may not have been taking shots at opponents with his tweets, but most of them are in good fun. He’s a tough guy to understand, but there’s no debating he’s a good football coach. Sometimes you have to take the bitter — or in this case incredibly strange — with the sweet.

Yes, you read that correctly – two Bornean orangutans from the Phoenix Zoo will be taking up Lee Corso’s mantle and choosing the winner of the 2019 Playstation Fiesta Bowl and the Cheez-It Bowl. This actually isn’t that weird, given that orangutans are born with the ability to reason and think. They are one of humankind’s closest relatives, sharing nearly 97% of the same DNA. And over the years, the animals have about a .500 record when it comes to choosing correctly, according to the Zoo’s director of communications Linda Hardwick. Jiwa, the Zoo’s five-year-old male orangutan, is choosing the Cheez-It Bowl winner, and fourteen-year-old female, Rayma, is choosing the Fiesta Bowl winner. Jiwa suffered a bit of stage fright last year, but luckily his dad swooped in and grabbed both UCF and LSU jerseys, causing a bit of controversy over which jersey he touched first. This year, the rules are as follows: Jiwa will go first and choose the winner of the Cheez-It Bowl. There will be two t-shirts in his habitat, one
