    Omaha Sports Banquet - Mike Leach

    Just got back from the Omaha Sports Banquet with Mike Leach as the featured speaker and it was a great event. Had a chance to spend some time with him before and after the event and really enjoyed the conversations. Coach Leach is a very down to earth guy and had a lot of stories to share. I'll post more pictures tomorrow. Here we are doing the Heisman pose with Johnny Rodgers.

    Edit 5/10 - Here are some more pictures.

    Great pic, Max. Had just listened to Mike Leach's interview on "The Zone". He sounds like a great guy.

    Looking forward to more pics.

    Thanks.

    Great picture, David.

    I loved his radio podcast on U.C. A really good listen.

    It's funny that you say he is "a very down to earth guy" because many sports writers paint a picture of him as a real "space cadet!"

    That was my thought, also. Twins separated at birth.
