"With Mike leech dying. Link, if it and Mike leafs were really close, super sad. Yeah, khali. I mean, what a horrible occurrence. That was. And I'm close with a couple of guys that played football at Texas tech and they had texted me a day before the announcement that he died that he had already died. And it was just, it was just a reminder of how fleeting life is, dude. That dude, he coached against the whole miss three weeks ago. It beat him. Yep. It beatle missed three weeks ago. Yeah. And doing all the crazy interviews and hilarious classic Mike Lee stuff, and he's dead. Three weeks ago, three weeks later. He's 61 years old, dude. 61. Yeah. He's my favorite man. He was my absolute favorite when he was in a press conference. There's not a lot of people I would really care. If it was a fan of a team I like, but regardless, you want to know what he has to say, right? Every single time. Every single time. And dude, he's got just all this stuff over. It's cool to look through Twitter and see all the cool videos and stories and stuff that he posted. Like, Cole, Cole. He was Robert. He was played for him and leach was famous for at Oklahoma. He scripted the first 17 plays or however many was in like leaked it to Texas like he dropped it and then Texas thought he was running those plays and they didn't run a single one of those. First place or whatever. And then at Texas tech, he said they tried to do the same thing to Kansas state and the guy for Kansas state knocked on their locker room door said here y'all dropped this. Go drop the plays right here. Like Dan Snyder, or coach Snyder, he was in fallen for he was her bill, sorry, bill Snyder, owner of the Redskins, or whatever commanders ever, but yeah, Bill Snyder, he's like, we didn't fall for this shit. He's like, y'all dropped this back here like laughing. But yeah, at least, I mean, how good is that to it? Against Texas, he freaking draws, it draws a fake opening place script that they were grinding on. Thinking those were the plays they were going to run. They're going to pick off every pass and everything else. And it was just like, so it's coaching tree. His coaching tree is insane. This charts, man. It's like, it's kind of like, I mean, it's way more impressive than Belichick in the NFL. I know he has a lot of guys, but I mean, dude, if your school has a relative right up there with Saban, it's right up there. If your school has a relevant offense, they one of them was in leeches program at some point.

"Air raid has made inroads into the league. And so for all the criticism of the air raid and all the criticism of there's always a ceiling for what the Mike leach offense could get a gimmick stuff, yeah. But you know what? They're still results out there. My ultimate measure of a coach in college sports. Is what does their coaching tree look like? And the reality is you start going through the Michael each coaching tree. And there are roots everywhere in this football game, including TCU and the castle wall player. And so as we're left now with the tree, the branches that continue to bloom, and Mike leeches absence, McGee, at the very end here, I did want to play some sound. From another interview that Mike leach gave to our friend and colleague, Jeremy shap. Because when shat visited leach, he asked a question a couple of years ago now. That we need to play given the news that we just got. When people write the mic leach obituary. We hope that's many years from now. Many, many years from now. How do you want to be remembered? Well, that's their problem. They're the one right in the obituary. I mean, what do I care? I'm dead. Yeah, I mean, this is, it's funny, it's chilling. It's quintessential Mike leach. Answering what he wants his own obituary to be, which is not an obituary at all. And I ask you this, I play this for you now, and I ask you about this because you had spoken with him recently, right? You knew him, you covered him. How are you going to remember him? Now that he's got first of all, I hadn't heard that in a really long time. And I'm laughing to myself because I had to write it this week. I had to write it for the SEC network this week. And thinking about him somewhere laughing at me. Because he knew I was going to have to do this. And then maybe one day, depending on what you believe, I've seen him one day and he can criticize what I wrote. But what I wrote was this is how I opened it. I said, it's super easy. To throw around the phrase, he's one of a kind. Or to say someone marches to the beat of their own drummer. And I wrote this sentence, I said, but in the case of Mike leech, there aren't enough phrases or cliches or even words in the dictionary to accurately describe the man of whom they didn't really break the mold. There's no way anything is rigid of a mold could have been used to create him in the first place. And I go on to talk about all these words in the thesaurus, unique nonconformist idiosyncratic, chances are he knew those already, and he probably knew two or three words that we've never heard of. There aren't. That mean the same thing. And so to me, the ultimate measure of someone is, you know, what's life going to be like without him. And the reality is, and I wrote this too. The college football world, sure. But the world in general is a less interesting place because Mike Lee is no longer in it.

"Here is concerned? Well, it was, it was a very typical Mike leech situation in that his brashness that he believed would push this forward and make everybody realize in his mind how dumb it all was. Ended up just rubbing everyone the wrong way. And looking back, I think he wished he had handled that just a little bit differently. But it was a situation involving Adam James, who was the son of Craig James, the pony patriot, longtime ESPN football analyst. Adam James suffered a concussion. He was examined the next day and told that he was not supposed to practice. According to the James family, leach, ordered Adam to stand in the equipment room near the practice facility there in Lubbock. In the equivalent room being as it was portrayed a lot of times, it's just this shed. Leach was asked to apologize to the family, Craig James was very public about his criticism of the situation. Mike leitch, quite frankly, was very angry at ESPN for a long time because he felt like the network. This is how he felt, had sided with James over him, and he was fired. Because he refused to apologize to the James family, the university referred to that as a defiant act of subordination, not to quote, and to his literal dying day. If you wanted to get Mike leitch, fired up, fired up. You would ask him about the money that he believed Texas tech still owned him from what he believed was a wrongful firing. Yeah, I mean, he ends up suing ESPN, Craig James, Texas tech, the suits get dismissed. And it's worth noting that for all of the natural bad blood you would assume would linger there. It seemed like he was a still very happy to talk to ESPN later on. Yeah, talk to you. And also, more than that, he was uncouth when it came to his desire to say the things he thought, even if other people were alternately made uncomfortable or horrified by some of his things that he wanted to express. What he would say to me and to others was that I think the way I stated earlier was that he would do things differently. And what he would say was he would have done things differently just to make it go away quicker. And that's what I think. But the reality is he toned down nothing. You know, this was at

"Finally, the most wonderful time of year is upon us again. College football season. And Dr Pepper and the residents of fans ville invite you to revel in another one of a kind year of flexing your foam finger and humming your school's fight song in your sleep and thriving on a steady diet of buffalo chicken dip and postgame commentary. All washed down with a rich delicious Dr Pepper, of course. Another Saturday is always just around the corner, so make sure your tailgate doesn't turn into a fail gate. And pick up a case of ice cold Dr Pepper, the one fans deserve. So you spent a couple days with Mike leeches you alluded to earlier on the police, right? In Washington state, and one of the more peculiar parts of North America, this is back in 2017. What did you learn when you were out there with him? About all of the stuff that he was obsessed with outside of football. What I learned and I had to work to get him to finally go down this road with me, and he ended up agreeing, was that all of this stuff that he loved, whether it be pirates, or whether it be Geronimo, whom he wrote a book about, or factual biography. Absolutely. But all of these things eventually applied to football. His obsession with Native American culture, and the way they just went about their lives on a daily basis. We may or may not have had a couple of bottles of rum together. In Pullman, Washington late at night, and he talked about the fact that Geronimo's war tactics were very unconventional, fighting with the mountains to your back. You know, taking your soldiers over the mountain as opposed to following the rivers like every European army school would teach you. You know, he talked about how the Native Americans would hunt for ducks to eat. And they would hollow out gourds, and they would go into a pond, a duck pond, and they would hide under those gourds for days. And then eventually pop out underneath them once the ducks had gotten used to floating into palm with these gourds. They'd have dinner. And eventually talking to him, you realize this is how he thought about football. Constantly, which was just what can I do to lull the opponent to sleep? What can I do unconventionally strategically that they don't see coming that keeps them unsettled, and that's. It's how he attacked football. He attacked football, you know, just like you learned how blackbeard attacked North Carolina coast. Well, the blackbeard thing, the rum thing which may or may not be directly result of the pirate thing. It is 100% directly resulting. Just to be a hundred just to be clear, these things are not disconnected. Try to connect the dots here. So where did the pirate thing? Where on the map did the pirate thing come from? Is this idea of swing your sword, which is what is also the title of his book. And it's this idea of if you're a pirate, you know, are you just going to keep that sword, she? Are you just going to pace around with it? Or are you going to swing? Are you going to let them know? That this is who I am and you are in for a fight. And I'm going to attack. I'm not going to wait to be attacked. I'd give the team speeches on various items. And I have a museum replica pirate sword that I'm swinging around. I'm swinging the sword around. It's still pacing back and forth swinging the sword around. You know, how are you going to swing your sword? Are you going to have a dull rusty sword? Are you going to have a sharp efficient deadly sword? And it's why he loved Key West. As a kid, he looked at a map of the United States. And they're learning about the capitals of each state. And he looks at the map of Florida and thinks, what is this dot? Way out here in the ocean. And he realizes that's Key West, and that's where if you needed him during the off season, that's where you'd find him. When he was between jobs. That's where he lived, wrote his bike to the grocery store. I love Key West. I went to QS and my wife one day and I was standing outside the hotel. This guy goes by on a bike and all of a sudden locks up the brakes and turns around and says, you're not here to interview me, you are you? And I realize this Mike leech. And so that's just, he would hang out in captain Tony's, which is where Hemingway hung out. And he just, he found out the navy seals were training. Not far from his house at the naval base near Key West, and he talked his way into naval seal training. Participate, but he watched them, and then he took that with him, you know, to Pullman and use that when he taught football. So this character, right? This multi dimensional character. This guy is unapologetic, right? That's a word that seems to recur when I hear people who know Mike leitch talk about Mike leech, which also feels euphemistic for, okay, this guy was a character and also that has some, you know, negative connotations. He lived to rub people the wrong way. And to make them uncomfortable. And that's the way he coached football. And as a result, and sometimes it was by design, sometimes it was just Michael HP and Mike leech, he would rub people the wrong way. Listen, there are a lot of might lead to tractors. There are a lot of critics. Yeah, I think about when I would talk to other coaches about leech, particularly when he came to the SEC while just a little over two years ago. And a lot of the coaches that came from that Nick Saban tree were like, what's the story on this guy? You know, is he weird? Is he whatever? Yeah. And then they start having these big coaches meetings. You know, three or four times a year. The SEC gets all their coaches in a room just to talk about the issues of the day. And now, these same guys who were worried about having to share a room with Mike leach and share a stadium with Mike leach are fighting to see who gets to sit with him during these meetings. Because now they realize he's entertaining. And now they realize he's not a bad guy, but with that personality of his deathly real people the wrong way. I go back to that trip to the palouse of 2017 all the time. It landed right in the middle. Of the peak of the national anthem controversy in the NFL. And Mike leach asked a question that day to the media. When a question was asked to him about his team was not on the field for the anthem as most college football teams are not. But to question about kneeling to Neil or not to Neil was put out there and he asked a question of the room, he said, I need to know what these protests are about. And then he said, I want to know because I fear when protests become widespread that people listen to the noise, they see the images, but they lose touch with what the initial reason for that was. And those comments rubbed a lot of people the wrong way. And he said, if I'm on the field, I'm standing because I'm proud to be an American. And set it at a time when, you know, that was the touchstone issue, not just in sports, but in the United States. Yes. He wasn't afraid to express his opinion. Whether you agreed with it or not, whether it made you uncomfortable or not, you know, that's Mike leech. No, it's profoundly un shocking, right? That Mike leach had some had some takes that were bad. Had some conspiracies that he was curious about, was a guy with an online presence that proved problematic, but all of that seems to be like, you know, in terms of just national attention, an undercard to the thing that happened that got him fired from Texas tech. Right? This is 2009. How do you begin to tell the story of Adam James and Mike leach as a matter of comprehensiveness

"His living at the places where he made his living. That's why Lubbock Texas was perfect. That's why Pullman Washington was perfect. That's why I start from Mississippi was perfect. I don't know that this would have played whether it was the offense or whether it was just Mike leech being Mike leitch. In Los Angeles, or in Austin, Texas, or even in Columbus, but it worked perfectly in the places where he was because there were college towns, uniquely, and he was a college guy unique. Yeah, and so there was freedom in the system, his quarterbacks had the ability, the autonomy, to make the calls in ways that most coaches again are not comfortable seating to a college kid. And so it seemed fun. It seemed really fun to watch, and also, to be very clear about this, it also won a whole damn lot. It won a lot, and you know, there are certainly criticisms. I mean, the record was above 500. There was one 58 one O 7 in 21 years. Never won a conference championship. Oftentimes would get to the big game, I think about so many apple cups, Washington Washington state, where they came up short, you know, in a chance to go to the PAC 12 championship game. They're always felt like there were limitations to it. But at the end of the day, there was no limitations to his imagination. And that was the entertaining part of. All right, Mickey, after the break, I want to talk to you about Mike leach the renaissance man? And

"So Ryan McGee, when did you first meet Mike leach? You know it's a great question because I had interviewed him many times in like the formal settings, right? Press conference. I mean, his formals it can be with my leech. The postgame press conference, you know, the Monday coaches press conference. The media days, those types of things, but the time I always go back to was in 2017. I flew out to Pullman Washington to do it was supposed to be an interview for SportsCenter for television, and I was also supposed to write a big profile story for ESPN dot com. And I was told I had 15 minutes. And for you, non sports writers out there, that is not enough time. Like to do it. That is a nightmare. And certainly not to do TV and to write. And so I purposely wore what I lovingly refer to as my ugliest necktie. Which is a tie that my daughter gave me. For Father's Day, it's an old Civil War era cartographers rendering of the North Carolina coast. I wore that towel purpose and throughout the interview. With Mike leech, I kept fiddling with my tie, kept straightening it out, you know, and his eyes kept going down to it. And I knew I had him. And as soon as the interview ended, he goes, what's the story on this tie? So coach, this is the beach where I grew up. And going to vacation in north colossi, in fact coach, there used to be an old confederate blockade runner, the remains of it owned the beach. It's down under the sand now but when I was a kid, it was there and he goes, okay, neck tie guy, you're going to dinner with me. I'm supposed to be there 15 minutes. I stayed three days. And that was Mike leech. Man. You know, by the way, when I was leaving, trying to make my flight, leaving his driveway a couple days later, he stopped me and he goes, hey, just so you know I knew what you were doing with the necktie. I was like, okay, I don't want you to think you got away with it. No, but this is the thing. The scheming, the strategy, the approach to how to cover this man. Over years, I mean, just to be very clear about this, it doesn't feel like there was anything else like it. There wasn't. And the challenge was to get him to answer an actual football question. And once he did, you learned so much. And you got into this, you know, this beautiful mind, right? Of what the error rate offense was and how it was born and the way his mind operated, but you probably had to listen to a speech about sir Francis Drake. And about Geronimo and about the battle of Fredericksburg and then eventually he would tell you how he planned to scheme for the egg bowl that weekend. Yeah, I mean, look, McGee, we're talking here. Now, of course, because we got the news yesterday that Mike leach passed away. At the age of 61, after suffering a heart attack at home over the weekend and what you've already begun to do here, which is piece together for us and obituary, feels like a task that for this guy is extraordinarily complicated because he's not the standard. Oh, this is the greatest coach of all time. This is even a guy who coached at one of the greatest programs of all time. He wasn't that. But what he is, what he meant, what he did, it does, it does seem to be as big almost as anybody in college football. Mike leach to me is why I love college football.

"I remember the first time I watched Mike leach. I'm a big college football fan. And he was the coach of the Texas tech raiders, it's one of the best red raiders things. One of the best football teams ever assembled. Graham harrell was their quarterback. I believe Michael crabtree was there wide receiver. And there was this eccentric coach that was something else. He changed football forever. Air raid offense to how he was able to get kids that otherwise would not be playing at Alabama or Georgia or USC to just over perform. And he was a wise, he was a who he was a wise guy. And he was a patriot. This is cut 45. Mike leitch responding to the blowback over his support for Donald Trump play cut 45. I had quite honestly don't care because I respect their opinion and their choice to select anybody that they want. To be their candidate. I mean, do we really live in a country where you can't freely support whoever you want is that I mean, is that what you're suggesting? And is that their prerogative to ask for that? I don't think it is. You know, we've always had freedom of speech. I always said the right to protest and I think that should be respected. As long as it's in an orderly fashion, you know, I respect their opinion. And I'm certainly not going to hide from my opinion. And I shouldn't be asked to. I was going to say if I am asked to. I live in a different country than we were all told that we grew up in. Amen for that. Love this country. He was a big fan of turning point USA. We texted regularly. And he didn't care what other people thought. Probably one of the most epic viral videos, it's two minutes long, and if you don't laugh, then you take yourself way too seriously. Play cut forward. It's two minutes long. We do this in honor. Of the now passed away, Mike leach. There's more, there's more facts and thought crimes in these two minutes. Play cut 40. I'm just telling you. When it comes to marriages, the women lose their mind. Your fiance is going to lose her mind. Your mother in law is going to lose her mind. Your mom is going to lose her mind. They're going to barrage you with constant questions. What should we wear? And then, which of course my answer was, I don't care. And then what color should the invitations be? I don't care. What should we have for dessert? I don't care. Should we seat this this way or did that that way? I don't care. But see, I don't care is not satisfactory at all. And you're going to get caught in a catch 22. And I'm certain that you already have. What do you want for dessert? I was thinking of strawberry shortcake. Oh, okay. Yes, strawberry shortcake would be good. Well, what about the blueberry pie? Well, I like the blueberry pie. We could have the blueberry pie. Well, I thought you said you wanted the strawberry shortcake. And it's just going to go back and forth. There's no answer you can give that it's going to be satisfactory or correct. And if you successfully please a few of them, the others will still be, oh, well, I just don't feel like he's that interested. Okay, so you need to work late. Go in the back room and read a lot of books. You have to go take the groomsmen out. So you make sure that they march in just right, and they know exactly these swell outfits that you picked out or whatever, however you're doing it. And in the end, you'll wish you eloped. But nevertheless, you need to find you need to find excuses that they'll buy to be as far out of harm's way as you possibly can. But take comfort in knowing that once the ceremonies over, that life will get progressively better from there, even though there's some adjustment. This is going off and they just randomly ask him about his wedding advice. Really quick, cut 36. Just some of his most memorable moments play cut 36. Coach, I know you have strong thoughts on weddings. Go elope. Trust me on that. That's a good win. There's a lot of people. It's like Woodstock sift everybody's got their clothes on. I think candy corn's awful. You know, it's like fruitcake. I hope there's Bigfoot. I don't think there is. And I'm getting emotional just seeing that. Anyway, he was a special guy and I'm sorry I never actually had a chance to meet him. And then so college football devotee, he was a legend, coach of the year twice, always had undersized kids that were under recruited and got them to over perform. And Mike leitch would text me all the time, asking me about all sorts of different topics and stuff. And now he passed away, and that's sad and it's tragic, but Mike, we carry on your legacy of playing offense here for America. God bless you, Mike leitch, and all the lives you impacted..

"49, Sam bankman freed, talking to The New York Times, saying he didn't knowingly commingle any funds. Play cut 49. That there is a view that this is about co mingling of funds. I didn't knowingly commingle funds. I was frankly surprised by how big Alameda's position was, which points to another failure of oversight on my part. But I wasn't trying to commingle funds. So he claims he wasn't trying to commingle funds. So all of this word gamesmanship and maneuvering worked perfectly. As long as the crypto market was going up. But as soon as the market cooled off and people got a little bit crypto wary, SPF started to take massive losses, which then he had to increasingly take desperate measures to cover up. When you start to engage in a cycle of fraud and treachery and deception and send requires more fraud treachery and deception to cover it up. Said differently in a biblical context, sin does not operate in a silo. If you lie about something, you likely are going to have to lie about the lie to cover up the line. You're probably lying about something that you did that you shouldn't have been doing in the first place. And instead of not doing that thing, then you have to lie about that thing then you have to lie about it and you go deeper and deeper and deeper into a place where you are no longer free. This is Sam bankman freed. One of SPF's tactics was that he took $8 billion that Alameda owed to FDX and he hid it in an ordinary customer's account. He called the weird Korean account. By doing this, he was able to hide the huge hole that he opened in his balance sheet. Overall, the amount secretly moved between FTX and Alameda appears to be in the range of ten billion dollars.

The Indictment of FTX's Sam Bankman-Fried

"Evening, Sam bankman freed has been officially indicted by the United States government by the Department of Justice, interestingly right on the cusp before he would have to testify in front of Congress and answer a lot of questions. About exactly where did all this money go? Well, look, for over a month, millions of crypto investors around the world were very worried that Sam bankman freed would somehow pull off one of the greatest criminal Houdini acts in history. Now Sam bankman frees crypto exchange called FTX collapse about a month ago. It collapsed because of a crypto blog called coinbase. That noticed an irregularity in their reporting. Now I'm far from a crypto expert from what I understand, though, one of the, one of the selling points or one of the characteristics of crypto technology is that there is an open ledger so people can go through it and they can see are your books actually balanced. You can see all the transactions, and I actually believe coinbase didn't necessarily find the discrepancy in FTX itself, but in one of FTX investments or subsidiaries. It might have been Alameda, it might have been one of their other projects. And so this caused a basically crypto bank run. SPF just sat at his home in The Bahamas giving interviews while no charges were forthcoming, but yesterday that changed and the timing, I think, is very interesting. In The Bahamas, they announced that they arrested SPF in his home. It's coin desk, not coinbase. I'm sorry. Coin desk is the blog coinbase is something else. I forgive me for that. So this morning, the security and exchange commission, and the Department of Justice revealed they had brought charges against SPF for securities fraud.

"In your wallet? Term supplies he Capital One dot com slash bank. Capital One NA member FDIC. You are listening to the Paul fine bomb show podcast. And welcome back, we will also include your phone calls between some of our remembrances of coach leisha and I want to thank all of you yesterday. It was a difficult day and as we were waiting for news and sadly, we were not expecting good news and some of you many of you know paid such a tremendous tribute to coach leach and will continue with that today. Don is in Maryland. A hello Don. Hi, Paul. Thanks for taking my call. Thank you. Back before coach went to Washington state, he was unemployed, living in Key West, and he had a daily radio program on Syria. So I think his radio partner was a guy named Jack a root if I'm pronouncing it right. That is exactly for our and coach leitch worked out they worked together in the studio because leach was out of his home. One day there was a journalist, newspaper reporter, whatever, that told a story on the radio about a job interview that coach leitch had. And I don't know if it was with the AD from Washington state or not at any rate it took place in Florida. Now coach Lee lives in Key West and when he's down there he doesn't take a car with him. He uses a bicycle. So the coach called him, he's going to be at a motel somewhere north of Mike leach. And they establish the time. And coach Lee says, what's the dress code? And he said, cash. So coach lease takes off. He's on his bicycle. And he miscalculated the distance. I think he was planning on like an hour or hour and a half bike ride. But as it turned out, it was 30 minutes beyond that. So when he knocks on the door of the AD, he's 30 minutes late. In the AD opens the door and there stands a bike in Bermuda shorts, a short sleeved shirt, and he's dripping and pressing. And they have an interview, and I'm listening to this rolling on the floor. The guy is interviewing for what, a million minimum of a $1 million job, maybe two. And he shows up on a bicycle of Bermuda shorts. If that doesn't solidify that he's a down to earth guy. I don't know what does. It was a great, great interview. I have not heard it repeated on India. No, I haven't either. And Don, I will say, I knew coach leash back during those times and worked with him and the times together, he. Was doing that he got fired at Texas tech over this Craig James dilemma. And he turned on ESPN and he used to use his platform to just berate ESPN on a daily basis. I say this now working for ESPN. When you weren't working here, it was pretty funny. Yeah, and I remember that what's his name, Craig James. I remember what I didn't like about mister James was, he used his position as a radio announcer to be a little at coach. I didn't like that. No, and I really don't know what happened to Craig James. He was a major force on television at ESPN and I think he was CBS too. I can't remember. And that was just a very ugly incident that coach leitch was able to rise up and survive. And it wasn't easy, by the way. Hey, thank you so much for your call. Pat is in Georgia. Hi, pat. Hey, Paul, and thank you for the opportunity for me to express my sincere condolences to my latest family and also to the Mississippi state family. I remember three years ago talking with you about my leach coming to the SEC and how the air raid offense might bear in the SEC and I remember commenting at the time, I don't know how well he'll coach, I don't know how well the air raid will do, but it's going to be fun. It's going to be entertaining and I'm going to enjoy the ride. And I'm sorry that the ride was so short. I really am. Pat, thanks so much for that tribute. We'll continue paying tribute to coastal age. John Cohn, the current athletic director at auburn, who hired coach leach at Mississippi state joins us next. Thank you for listening to the Paul fine bomb show podcast. The Paul fine bomb show airs weekdays on the SEC network beginning at three eastern.

"And as unfun as it was, we provided that opportunity to compete. This year, I'm not wearing a necktie for this interview, Paul, because at media days this year, and I discuss the lack of value inherent in wearing a necktie, and he was very clear on his opinions there. I went out to Tucson to see Mississippi state play. It worked with my travel schedule, an early game that day in Austin. And he's the only coach I've ever talked to at halftime walking off the field. And 30 plus years of a career. I just happened to be at the end zone where Mississippi state's locker room was located. And he actually saw me and walked over and he asked me, what am I doing there? And I said, well, I came to see your team play. And we talked a few more exchanges and all of our personal interactions were like that. And as I noted before, I'm sad, big picture for his family. I'll miss the opportunity that I intended to go grab, which was to sit down and talk about the state of college football with him and gain from his perspective. Commissioner, thank you on a very difficult day for everyone connected to college football for making time for us. We appreciate it. Hope to see you very soon. Thank you for the invitation and the opportunity to honor the life of Mike leach. The commissioner of the southeastern conference, Greg sankey joining us. We have many more voices, including the man who hired Mike leach at Mississippi state, we're coming right back. What if you were a gigantic snack food maker?

"Called me, he had been put up to it and said, I just want to check on you, buddy. How's everything going? And I told him, and I was about, I was about to go in for a brain cat scan. I mean, they were trying to find something and they thought maybe there was something going on. Maybe I was fatally ill. So about three weeks later, I happened to see this head coach. Now, you tell somebody you're going through a brain scan, curious stuff. He said, how's it going, buddy? I said, great. He said, no, is your shoulder better? He knew I had something wrong with me. And he didn't remember what it was because he really obviously didn't care. So he asked me how my shoulder was. I said my shoulders doing great. But my point being, that's the point about coach leitch. I'm still blown away with hearing your stories and hearing others all day, what do you think made him was it curiosity? What was it that made him so interested in other people when most coaches, if not, let's be honest, all of them were like the guy I talked to. I think a lot of it has to go with his background. I mean, he grew up in Cody Wyoming. He wasn't a person to privilege by any measure and if you look at the schools he chose to coach, I mean a lot of them are land grant schools or people have blue collar values and things of that nature and the thing that it probably impressed me the Mike leach is he never had had it anybody. He never thought he was better than anybody. And you mentioned there are a lot of coaches and then this is not to be critical of anybody, but they keep people at arm's length. Mike leach was not that person. Mike leach, it didn't matter if it was a $1 million donor or somebody working on the cleaning crew. He treated everybody with dignity and respect. And I think that's why people gravitated to him because people want to be treated like people and not just necessarily means to an end. And I think he made people feel important to him. It's just like I mentioned in a story yesterday. I mean, I wake up Saturday morning to go outside and take my dogs out and I've got a text from Mike leach. Hit three 26 in the morning, you know, giving me an idea of where I should stay when I go back and go back out to New Mexico. I mean, you know, who thinks that way? And I was really emotional yesterday and especially on Monday and I mentioned in my wife, I said, you know what I mean? It's really special to me that at three 26 in the morning, Michael each was thinking about us. And you know, he didn't have to. He had a million things to think about. He's got recurring. He's got, you know, ball game coming up and he was thinking about how maybe we could have a better time together and we're out in Albuquerque. And he's just a special person. He cared about people and I don't know that that was a story that really got told very often. No, and I think Steve, there's so many aspects of this that are tragic, but Mike leach and retirement would have been a whole nother chapter, wouldn't it, not having to deal with all this stuff that he deals with. I can only imagine what that would have been like. You know, we even talked about former first conversations about coach do you have another book in you? And he goes, yeah, probably do. He said, I'll have to quit coaching to write it though. And then a couple of months ago, we mentioned he said, you know, hey, maybe you'll help me write that book. And I said, coach, I'd be honored to do that. You know, I've read in 5 books and that's one of the things that we kind of bonded over is the whole writing process until you've written the book. You don't fully appreciate how difficult it is. And you know, your own experiences. And that was one of the things too, I think, was maybe a little bit of a challenge for Mike, as best when he wrote swing your sword. He was not afraid to attempt anything, but I think the book writing process kind of got the better of him for a little while. And I think you maybe you have to kind of hold his hand a little bit to make it through there, but both of his books are absolutely fabulous and it fans don't have my encouragement to go out and get it. Nothing would make me happier than looking on a New York Times Best Seller list. Next week and see swing your sword in Geronimo in the top ten. Well, Steve, I'll just say from one writer to the other. I hope you do that book about coach leech one day. You may not have his cooperation. But I bet you will, anyway, you know enough. So be well and thanks for making time for us. Thanks so much for having me. You bet, Steve Robertson. Talking about and we will talk to the co author of swing your sword later on. And that story, there's such an understory to the story of the writing of that book that Bruce Feldman will share with us.

"Today. You are listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast. Steve Roberts and a very close friend saying today can not begin to say what an honor and a privilege it was to cover my lead. She was so much more than the cartoon character, some painted him out to be. He was a legendary coach for an even better man. My life has been enriched by knowing him. I will miss him terribly. Steve joins us now to talk about his friend. Mike leitch and Steve, thank you very much very much. We were all talking about your piece yesterday, my friend, the pirate, and there's no easy way to start a conversation about coach leash, but let's try remembering the good times. Good afternoon and your thoughts on this legendary figure. Well, first of all, thanks for having me. And giving me the opportunity to speak about coach and I'll tell you the thing about coach got hired, I had so many people that told me they said, you know, Steve, you're the luckiest guy in sports. You get to cover Michael each every day. I didn't realize how special those things were going to be because it wasn't just about access and O's. It was just about life and coach had been so many places and done so many things. If you were ever traveling there, you didn't speak to anybody other than coach, because he could tell you where to eat, where to go, we're not to park and things of that nature, but the main thing, I guess, Paul that is so important is losing access to all of that wisdom, not just about football or about offense, but about the reality of being a better person. And I think Mike leach maybe didn't get enough credit for the quality person that he was. No, I think you're right. Unfortunately, we all get put into positions of two or three or four things. But so to help us better understand that I know it's way late in the game, but it's never too late because we'll be talking about coach leach for a long time, I believe. What was he like to be around? Who was he? He was amazing because he knew a little bit about everything. It didn't matter what you brought up. He had an opinion on it, and he was always so well thought out. He was one of those guys that didn't just fly off to the handle and shoot from the hip. He was very well thought out as an opinions. And it's amazing. Sometimes he'd call me late at night. I was a night owl, too, and of course, you know, being a writer and like himself, you know, we bonded over books and popular culture and stuff and he would call and maybe the big conversation will begin about football what was going on in the southeastern conference by the end of the conversation. We're talking about the war between the Mexicans and the Apache Indians and he wanted to make sure you understood how they navigated. Now they were so far ahead of the times and how smart people they were. You know, he actually has a copy of Geronimo's birth certificate. And I was like, coach, how does one get somebody else's birth certificate? He goes, you know, I don't really know. I took a tour and I told him I wanted it the next thing I know I had a copy of it. And it was one of his most treasured possessions. Steve, I think all of us are curious about who he was, but how did you two Bond? I mean, it's one thing to cover him. We all did from either a close distance or from far away, but what made it happen for you guys? Well, I think in some ways, maybe we were kind of Kindred spirits. You know, I have a very loyal old mess fanbase on Twitter that like to remind me they don't like me, but one of the funniest tweets was ever sent to me. It was shortly after Mike Lee's got hired. This guy said, imagine Mike leach is surprised when he goes to his first press conference and meets Steve Robertson, who is an actual pirate. And I think it's one of those things where we both just be life a little bit differently. And you know, I've been recovering a long time and he was really interested about that sort of thing. And you know, he said, I was the guy stay sober as long as you have. And especially being in this profession, you know, but he was interested in other people. Mike wasn't one of those people that just wanted to tell you everything he knew. He wanted to know what you knew and what made you tick and how you believe and things of that nature. He wasn't a guy that just dominated the conversation. Of course, he's got a million stories, but he wanted to know your stories too. And I think that was one of the things because he was so open to discuss that. And kind of get to know me as a person and thankfully he knew my work before he got here and he spent the first 30 minutes of our first interview him interviewing me about my path to start bull and get some things that I'd uncovered over the years and the fact that he had such a genuine interest in me was very refreshing because, you know, Paul, when you interview so many people, it's just so old had a lot of times you go through the motions, but with Mike, it was always a very genuine conversation. That's what struck me so much because we all have relationships with people we cover. Steve, many years ago, I was going through, they were trying to figure out what was wrong with me.

"All right, thank you, Brad. If you look up, it might have been a New York Times Sunday magazine cover. And this might have been 20 years ago. And Mike leitch was on the cover. And he just talked about his offensive philosophy. And the fact that NFL coaches would come in, they were trying to figure out what he was doing. Because that's where your great ideas happen. Not in the NFL. They happen in college. And Bill Belichick came down. They wanted to find out what was he seeing that they weren't seeing. Yeah, pulling. Yeah, that was 2005 New York Times Sunday magazine is coach sleep goes deep. Very deep is written by Michael Lewis, the gentleman who wrote Moneyball. So it's a deep dive on what coach leitch did.

I remember that, but there's so many good places to grab a quick slice in New York. Yeah, but we just, we just had a big meal. And then on the way back, he was up for wings and beer. It's the experience of wings and beer as much as the food itself. It's the camaraderie. That's right. It's like when Tim calls Shawn comes on the show. It feels like beer and wings.

"It was again bigger, broader things. So I wasn't surprised that the Jimbo stuff didn't really pop up that much. And it's also the angle for people. I don't know if they realize what even should be asked about it. Which almost brings me to another question. Kind of silly considering we're sitting up here on the SEC network desk, but what is this thing really all about? This event called SEC media days. I think it's for your show right now where I think part of it is is the people sitting behind us are kind of cameos, they're pointing their background players. That's a lot of what it is. I think this has become such a television event in many ways. It's for the programming for the SEC network and other places. More so than I think, what it was initially intended to be. I mean, not to age you here, Paul, but you're probably here for some of the original ones where you would ask your questions. You'd get stuff from every different SEC school, you'd store it up for a summer, use it in your preview preview content. That's gone. That's exactly. John's talking about, and my first SEC media days of 1985, that doesn't age me. It makes me into the Louvre. But the point being, there were small, there were not a lot of reporters here. And what we did, we had stories in the newspaper that week, but the big thing in July was you start started stockpiling stories for the big preseason kick-off, which came about a week before the season and the Sunday paper because that's how you sold advertising and it was a massive thing. And now try finding one in your paper, but it was so crazy that in 1990, Steve spurrier's first year at Florida. He played in the golf tournament for SEC media days. We were in Birmingham and on Wednesday morning or Thursday morning, whatever it was, the meeting would be bust out to bent brought golf course and spur your plate. And he got so many compliments for playing because that sports writers are not a love group. And the head coach at Florida is playing with the boys and he didn't need the PR, by the way, because he became one of the best coaches SEC history, but that's really what it was about. And can you imagine today saving, yeah, when do we head out to east Lake to go play around the golf? Yeah, that's immediately where my head went with that story was the incredible and likelihood that Nick Saban would want to golf with almost anybody in this room right now. And I'm going to say this for another time, maybe you're about a year from now because there is, I think the underbelly of the relationship you touch on in the leadership book, how he manages the media, but there's a lot more to that. Before you get out of here, I want to go back to yesterday with Greg sankey. Another very nuanced speech, one that has a vetting process, what did we learn? And what does it mean in relation to the two biggest issues of the day? And expansion. Well, I think you've seen for more than a year now, a pretty confident borderline cocky version of Greg sankey. I think we saw that again yesterday talking about how, you know, we're already a Super League. Already have kind of what we need. There's no pressure to expand. So I think you saw him coming from a very strong position. He clearly was taking some shots at the Big Ten, talking about how Texas and Oklahoma are better additions than USC and UCLA. And so I think we saw him trying to publicly position again the SEC as the strongest conference that we don't have to do anything as of right now. We like what we have and there's no rush for us to have to add anybody. But I think people will continue to watch the SEC and Big Ten closely to see because they're the two superpowers, right? And if either one of them wants a program that can probably get them minus the legal stuff and all that. But big picture wise, they can get who they want, whereas the big 12 PAC 12 ACC be hard for them to steal a really quality team right now. I'm curious because you know a lot of you know a lot of these commissioners and you've written about them, but tomorrow I believe it's starts tomorrow in Charlotte, what is the commissioner of the ACC going to say? What can he say? I think he has to just, we're trying to keep everybody together right now. I mean, I think they've fallen back on the grain of rights agreement multiple times that this is keeping us together. We're trying to figure out the solutions that we can to figure out the best way to survive. And so is that looking at a partnership with big 12 or PAC 12? I don't really know who they can add at this point. I've Notre-Dame's the dream, right? But I don't think anybody thinks right now, Notre-Dame's dying to join the ACC. And so he's in a tough spot, and I think you're seeing a bunch of these younger newer commissioners having to face problems very early on in their careers. Whether that's the PAC 12 commissioner, the ACC commissioner, they're both facing real challenges right now. And the big 12 commissioner is now too. John taught to joining us here stateside here at the desk. John, thank you very much. It's a pleasure. John taught to his new book coming out three weeks from today. Is that right? Three weeks. It's a good book. I have read it. We will take a break. More to come, including Shane beamer right around the corner. Thank you for listening to the Paul fine bomb show podcast.

"Is there needs to be rules in place so that everybody has the same opportunity to be competitive. Obviously, that's not going to happen, but that's something that he aspires to in college football. But if we're not going to have that just so you know Alabama players last year collected $3 million, which is probably as much as anybody in the country. So he basically just took said, look, it's just like the RPO conversation that we had 6, 7 years ago. Like, hey, I don't like where college football's going. This is what we want cultural to be do. We want it to be tempo. Do we want to be wide open? Do we want defense to be playing at such a disadvantage? But if you want it to be this way, guess what? We can play that game. Exactly. So that was how I think he handled today as I thought he straddled the fence a lot. And I think that was beneficial to the program while also making sure that his main point was driven home, which is what he's been trying to drive home all off season. Yeah, and we probably won't hear him about this on this subject until next year. But will your stories many, many more times this week? Greg, thanks for being here. Appreciate it. We're coming right back. We're live. In Atlanta. You were listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast. FX's American horror stories. There is this thing inside of me that's always hungry.

"And people are somewhat shocked about this, but I mean, there's 17 year olds getting traded all over the country. And playing minor league baseball. Of course. And not only that, they stick them in a room with four people and on a bus. I say we don't do that. I say, we put them on the plane when traded, but that's what professionals do. There's nothing there's nothing shocking, revolutionary about it. What is revolutionary is the notion that we would find ourselves where we currently find ourselves without any consideration whatsoever for what exactly a professional is and try to reinvent the wheel on our own when we already know our professionals do stuff. One last thing, since you were the most recently in the PAC 12, at a school that takes a long time to get to in Washington state. And now you see what's happening out there and you don't see any blowback and he pushed back, you just talk about wow, that's a good brand move for the Big Ten. The money they're going to make. And I just wonder because you were at one of those schools that are sitting there going, what's happening here and where do we go from here? Well, it's horribly tragic. I mean, it's completely tragic. And I hope the pack 12 and they assemble some other team stays together because that would be what's best for college football. And then I do wonder, you know, because I think that it's going to be a little more difficult for USC and UCLA to keep everybody in Southern California. 5 times a year, they're taken two and three hour time zone trips. Now keep in mind the rest of the Big Ten only has to do it less than once every other year. And then I've been on trips like this. And I know what the expression looks like. But think about that after one. After I'm probably going to get in trouble for this, but what do I care? And then so then trip number 5, okay? You played out there, either Penn State, Rutgers, or Maryland, say. He played out there. Game started the data clock at night. Okay. And you're going to come rolling in at the last Angeles. Oh, I don't know, 8 in the morning today. Maybe. And then, you know, and then the very next week, okay, fine. It's not, it's not Marilyn Penn State or but it's Michigan. Or Iowa or Purdue. You know? And then, I mean, look, it's going to be fun for me to watch. I'm not saying they won't do well. I mean, it might be such a good idea everybody's going to do it. You know? And so we'll see. But no, I mean, Washington state is a tremendous place, one of the greatest game day environments I've been to. And those teams in the northwest, they need to have a great conference. They need to have the opportunity to play. And to be perfectly honest, some of this is suffering since of the past. Because the PAC 12 was left vulnerable because there's a failure to have a TV deal. And so yeah, so there was you must be saying something very controversial. We have two guys. Yeah, they want to break, but there's definitely some conference miss management at the top. Right. And that's very sad for the schools, the players and the coaches. Well, you know, I feel I've always admired your honesty and your objectivity and we wish you well. I know you've got a big season coming up, but we'll catch you on that. When you break free of this maelstrom, thank you, coach. It's always good to see you. All right, I appreciate you. It's a pleasure. We'll be right back, coach Mike Lee, starting

"Espn dot com slash fantasy football for back sec media days on a day that began many hours ago with the arrival of vanderbilt in alabama and this afternoon mississippi state and say it seemed like just a normal wednesday immediate as until story came out of texas that said that the university of texas and oklahoma have inquired about joining the southeastern conference. So we just got through chat chatting about that with jimbo fisher coach ross. Bjork is here as well. The athletic director ross. Thanks for being here and tell us what you know about this and what you think. Well paul we were chatting off air a little bit. I came here to support our players. Marvin and kenyon and coach fisher. And just seen the media in a while. And i thought it'd be good to just get out and about in in the footprint and catch up with a lot of people in the industry and and i walk in and pretty much. The news was hitting as we were walking in the hotel and so i was caught off guard. Just like you're just like a lot of people here in in hoover were caught off guard and our position is look. There's a reason why we left the big twelve back in two thousand eleven and started in july first of two thousand twelve is that we wanted to have a standalone identity and the state of texas and all the turmoil that was happening in college athletics at the time and so the. Sec's been a perfect fit for us. And we believe that we want to maintain that that same identity. Perhaps there's a reason why texas and oklahoma are looking around. If that's the case. I think jimbo said it on the podium. Of course they do. They want to be in the. It's the best conference so there's a lot of uncertainty. I think right now in college athletics. So i think this type of story fuels that a little bit but from our perspective. We love being in the sec. We love being the only program in the state of texas. And we're gonna maintain that position but we're also going to make sure that we are a leader in college athletics and we'll see what the future holds even at two different schools in the you sat in these rooms for a long time and it is for the most part collegial group of athletic directors and headed by about commissioner. Sankey a i. I don't think you have a good answer for this. Because i've seen you you making the rounds here but have you had a chance to talk to anyone that is in a position to know more. I haven't. I've been running around a my phone. Obviously has been buzzing calls from lots of people call athletic directors around the country calls from other eighties within the commissioners sankey. And i will. We'll have a chance to catch up at some point in time..

I imagine the Mississippi State folks for happy about seeing vanderbilt no disrespect to the commodores but I think there's worse opponents that they could have drawn particularly in Mike Leach's first year not having the benefit of having a spring practice or off season conditioning program.

He was trying to talk to me Johnson. And the keys he was trying to talk into persuading the university of Miami interview him. I know he's alone. Everybody's got the number one passing offense in the country. Yeah. You always does that. It's incredible. I mean, yeah, that's what he does. Right. And he's do graphically as far away from Miami as possible, but they're so much fun. It's not just that. They throw the ball all over the place. It's not just that. They didn't we have a game this year where they had five hundred passing yards in zero rushing yards. It's not just that. They've got a quarterback. Who's got a crazy mustache? Right. But but then it's fun right up its own implodes. And it always implodes I'm telling you, it is fun. I'm agreeing with you never got. He's always gotten the lesser recruits. Those gods at Miami. He would have gotten decent recruits. He's always fighting. He's always number one in the nation with nobody in an outpost. Like, he did it at tumbleweed you. And now he's doing it in Washington state. He's in the top ten. So it stands to reason. He'd do it at the university of anywhere there. You can do it. Anyway, there was a big campaign at the time to get Mike Leach down here. I remember Donald Trump pre presidency had written something on a on a newspaper over the headline of Miami recently losing, and it was a letter to Donald Leyla saying that he needs to bring in my that they need to bring in Mike Leach. Oh life with so much easier back then. How great was that? I missed that time. So now, so now Mike Leach is at Washington state. And yeah, he's got a pirate in his office. And he's like a robotic pirate. And he's weird as hell and he he's gambling. But they got a quarterback with the mustache. And after the after the game, they wanna Colorado while Mike Leach was giving his interview the quarterback with the mustache came over and placed a fake mustache on Mike Leach's face. It was sideways. He continued to give the interview, and I just want you to juxtapose that against what happened with Andy Reid and tyreek hill.
