Problem is, he doesn't think character matters much, and he leaves his head coach with the daunting task like Lee Marvin had in The Dirty Dozen.
You do realize if the Raiders hire Leach, they gain a huge fan base from Tech....we love our Captain!
Yep! But no way in hell Leach would want Russell. And Davis loves that guy, for whatever reason.
Fine them. Bench them. Cut them. Trade them.
It's actually easier to deal with in the pros where there is far less pretense. Unlike big time college ball where they pretend to be about student athletes, the pros admit that it is a business and all about the money. Produce of be gone! Keep in mind, the average pro career is shorter than the average college career.
And for the record, the demonym for those that go to Texas Tech is not "Aggie," but rather "Sand Aggie."
Actually, the Captain of Texas Tech is Kent Hance and it was Kent Hance who fired Mike Leach.
I always wondered why MSU didn’t use Aggies, considering their old name used to be Michigan Agricultural College, affectionately known (and still referred to) as ‘Moo U’.
I read that Craig James attended over 70 practice sessions and was constantly hounding Leach to give his son Adam more playing time. .....That shows what a jerk daddy James is, but Leach should have banned him from the practices early on and would not have had the hassle.
A lot of Cowboys fans still dislike J Jones because of the Landry thing, just as you do. I understand. I’m a long time Cowboys fan, having attended many of their games in the Cotton Bowl in the early years and then later at Texas Stadium. ....Big game coming up Saturday night!
I read that and wondered why Craig had so much time on his hands. It's a long way from Dallas to Lubbock.
Hance may be a butt pirate, but he's no Captain.
One of the funny things that keeps being said is that Leach didn’t play the game - he wasn’t willing to kiss the big donors butt, however, the big donor who got all of this rolling is Craig’s buddy. Maybe Leach tried to get this Nanny Daddy banned and just couldn’t get it done because of the good old boys who were catering to the donor?
It was Kent Hance who ran Leach off.
I will miss Leach as he was the only coach in the country who actually provided real commentary about his player’s fat girlfriends.
He's too unpredictable for a league that fines Ochocinco on a weekly basis.
Additionally, his system relies on yards-after-catch which is much easier on the college level. His receivers would be beaten up within a matter of weeks in the NFL given the level of speed and size of DB's.
That’s quite possible. Money talks in college sports!
Speaking of money... Leach was fired only a few days before he was due a bonus payment of (I think) $800,000.
Rumors are out that Al Davis, owner of the Oakland Raiders, is interested in Leach being his coach.
