An Incredibly Sad Day As Mike Leach Has Passed. RIP, Pirate

It's a terribly sad day in college football as the world learned of the passing of Mike Leach. I can't imagine that we'll see a more interesting person in the sport as long as I'm alive — and maybe ever. Leach was truly unique and one of the few people you'd want to listen to for hours in a profession full of mostly dull, abrasive old men.

I just wanted to compile all of his press conference quips and Bigfoot rants floating across Twitter into one blog for people to look at and remember what was one of the coolest people to ever roam a college football sideline. There's nothing I could say to better encapsulate Leach than just letting him speak for himself.

RIP, Pirate.
