Rick Leach on TKA

Submitted by Aequitas on September 4th, 2009 at 8:52 AM

Gave me chills the entire ride in listening to him. What an awesome spokesman for Michigan. He's basically, and passionately, saying what every Wolverine fan that I personally know is feeling.

Whatever you do, take a few minutes and listen to the podcasts from this morning:

Part 2:

Also worth hearing Rick interrupt the Recruiting Round-up (you'll have to listen til the end of this one):

Right now Rick's got me ready to charge through a brick wall for Michigan and Coach Rod!

I love how he says there is a "group" at UM that is anti-Rodriguez and has been. Not that I love the group, just that this has been the worst kept secret during the last 19 months and the more it gets out (even if it's just one or two guys--one of whom is named after window coverings), the more public support Rodriguez gets.

"Window Coverings" is the absolute worst employee in the AD. I won't get into how big of an ass-hole this guy really is (oops I guess I already am). Let's just say he's the type of guy that screams at student managers and trainers after losses because they are "in the way" while trying to do their jobs. I would hate to be this guys dog...

didn't know those two chode-smokes were in the front row during RR's presser.

So many highlights, but two good ones were 1) best way to show support is to show up 50k strong for the Victor's Walk and 2) Rick wanting to put Rosendouche and Barwis in a small locked room together.

The Ufer cuts still give me the chills, man....

that the Victor's Walk is 1 hour and 45 min before the game, did I hear that right? We need to make that Walk just insanely memorable for Rich and the players.

I don't believe the players will be dressed to play as of yet. Then we'd all have to rush to our seats! No, it was probably an hour and 45 minutes.

Rick sounds great! It's so cool for him to support the team like he does; it connects the old with the new. He kinda sounds a little like Bo, didn't he?

Also, Rick is one of my Homies from Flint, Woot!

I met Rick Leach a few times during his freshman year, and he was an entirely normal person. He came to the old Frieze Building to do an interview, as part of one of my tv/film classes.

A group of us, including Leach, were sitting around talking for 15 minutes, waiting for some last crew people to arrive. When one cameraman groused about "waiting for Mr. Hot Shit", I introduced him to Leach, who was sitting next to him.

So I am gonna second the post that about Leach being the man.
