Our hosts and guests explored those questions in this week’s most talked-about interviews from 710 ESPN Seattle.

Washington State head coach Mike Leach found himself in hot water this past weekend when he tweeted, and then deleted, a doctored video of former President Barack Obama. Leach joined Brock and Salk Friday morning and said that while he took down the video when he found out it was fake, he stands by his belief that he was just looking to have a dialogue. In on-the-field news, Leach talks about the Cougs’ mentality heading into a challenging new season. Listen to Mike Leach’s interview with Brock and Salk.
