NEWSLINE: Hiking around Pullman w/ Mike Leach

MIKE LEACH HIKES to work most days. And it truly is a hike, through iffy terrain, garbanzo bean fields and burrs, writes ESPN. Then it’s usually time for what an indefatigable coach probably doesn’t need, lots of caffeine and sugar.

There was one thing, however, that (Graham Harrell) never really got while he was Leach's quarterback. And it's the same thing that Cougars QB Connor Halliday doesn't get now.

Ask Halliday if -- or when -- Leach gets sentimental, and he'll respond that he only sees it when Leach is talking about his children.

"Leach lights up," said Halliday.
