Priceless: Mike Leach reacts to the LIVE tiger in Seattle
Posted by: Pete Roussel on September 6, 2012
On Wednesday, Steve Sarkisian explained why he decided to bring a LIVE tiger to practice this week in preparation of Washington's trip to Baton Rouge.
Sark explained, "I love college football and all the pageantry that surrounds the game. This was just an example of how to embrace the pageantry and prepare the Huskies for gameday."
Since it involves wild animals, Washington State head coach Mike Leach shared his thoughts after Wednesday's practice on the LIVE tiger in Seattle.
Of course, he did.
Leach said, "Well, I think it would be impressive if they let that Tiger out of the cage. The other thing they could have done is stuck a Husky in there with that Tiger and let the Husky outduel that Tiger inside that cage and I think that would send a message to everybody."
He added, "I think I'd put my money on the same animal everyone else would."
Leach didn't say if he thought the idea was silly or not, but PTI's Tony Kornheiser and Mike Wilbon unloaded on Sark during Wednesday's show. Both said the idea was "dumb and stupid." Kornheiser believes Sark just created his own distraction for the team.
Come on, guys. Lighten up.
Personally, I like Sark's idea.
