Great Clips of the Week: What do Mike Leach and Simone Biles have in common? Not much, it turns out

FLIPPING OUT — Welcome to Monday, where sometimes you hit the start of the workweek like Simone Biles.

And sometimes, you hit it like Mike Leach.

Here are some of our favorite moments from the past seven days. As always, click the video above for more Great Clips of the Week.

Biles, FTW!

No offense, but none of us had as good of a weekend as Simone Biles.

The U.S. gymnastics star became the first person to land a double-double dismount on beam at the U.S. Gymnastics Championships.

History made.

Then, one night later, she dropped your jaw again by becoming the first woman to land a triple-double (two flips combined with three twists) in competition on floor exercises.

And she did it in usual Biles style — with a smile on her face the whole time.

Leach, FTF (For The Flop)!

First off, Mike Leach is a great college football coach. The former BYU rugby player who has made a name with himself at Washington State (and Texas Tech, as well as a handful of stops along the way) has compiled a 49-40 record, including last season's 11-2 mark that included a win over Iowa State in the Alamo Bowl.

Good thing he's good at coaching because his dismount could use a little work.

Let's just say, he's no Simone Biles.

The current Cougar (and former Cougar, as a student, that is) took flight in the pool during a recent fall camp activity — and we just want to say that everyone should approach life the way that Mike Leach approaches belly flops.

Pretty? Not at all.

But the world would be a better place.

'Officer, I'd like to report a murder'

Simone Biles is as good at gymnastics and Mike Leach is as good at belly-flopping as YouTube star Tristan Jass is at dunking.

The guy with more than 900,000 YouTube subscribers has such good moves on the court, it's apparently illegal in 17 states.

No youths were harmed or arrested during the taping of that video.

But we can't say the same about the defending cop's post defense.
