Sonoran Hot Reads: Mike Leach accuses ASU of having sign stealing command center

This is so great.

NCAA Football: Washington State at Arizona State Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Accusations of the Arizona State Sun Devils stealing signals is nothing new, but this week’s edition by Mike Leach is pretty great. Washington State travels to Tempe this weekend, and according to Leach, the “command center” of signal stealing. Leach comes on really strong with some of these comments, offering up details on cameras, microphones, and what these things are actually recording. The AZCentral post linked above has a good point though...it’s not working because ASU is 100th or worse in every major defensive statistical category:

- The Cougs are not trying to shy away from controversy this week. WSU wide out Gabe Marks called UCLA “kinda douchey” among other things

- Are you ready to start worrying about recruits decommitting? Good, because top commit Greg Johnson will be visiting Nebraska this weekend. This will be his first official visit...yep, even before Arizona
