Mike Leach, Press Conference GOAT, Ranks Loud Stadiums -- And Also Burgers

Washington State coach Mike Leach did what Mike Leach does at his weekly press conference on Monday. Here's the full 35-minute clip -- if you're into that sort of thing -- wherein Leach calls Oregon "every bit as good" as Southern Cal and discusses the Ducks' quarterback situation.

More importantly, however, Leach discusses how loud Autzen Stadium can be… sort of. He goes on to explain how Arkansas' War Memorial Stadium holds a quarter-million people on game day and not-so-subtly disses Whataburger.

Based on each description, here's our best shot at deciphering...

Mike Leach's Top 10 Loudest Stadiums:

1. Arkansas (War Memorial Stadium)
2. Oklahoma
3. Texas A&M
4. Nebraska
5. LSU
6. Georgia
7. Florida
8. South Carolina
9. Tennessee
10. Mississippi State (with cowbells)

While he was at it, Leach also ranked burger joints. And if you thought ranking a decrepit old cement bowl in Little Rock over Oklahoma Memorial Stadium, Kyle Field and Neyland Stadium was controversial, ​now hear this:

Leach's burger rankings:

1. In-N-Out Burger
2. Steak 'n Shake
​3. Five Guys

Uh, I'm sure that In-N-Out T-shirt is fantastic, but where is ​Whataburger?

The man spent 10 seasons in Lubbock, Texas. You can't tell me he hasn't devoured copious amounts Whataburger. And you can't tell me that the Monterey Melt and the Chop House Cheddar Burger aren't better than anything on the menu at In-N-Out -- secret or otherwise.

Oh, and we talkin' bout ​fries? Not a burger, not a burger -- we talkin 'bout ​fries? In-N-Out fries are only good if you get them Animal Style, and then it's not even about the actual fries. Anything is good if you smother it in grilled onions and cheese.

I know you're still holding a grudge against the entire state of Texas, coach. But c'mon. Whataburger didn't come up with sovereign immunity -- just delicious cheeseburgers and spicy ketchup.

If you're boycotting them, it better be because they refuse to make the Buffalo Ranch Chicken Strip Sandwich a permanent menu item. That's a cause I can get on board with.
