Craig James was the bigger issue. Not saying Leach handled the aftermath right, but it was a botch job all around.

Maybe so but he felt putting the kid in a dark shed was the best treatment. He is an odd duck but he can coach.

We have upgraded our concusion protocol facilities..... Adam could have walked out and gone to the gym. Bus runs every 10 minutes. Seriously, why was Leach even talking to him??? That is up to the trainer for an injured player. Adam probably was trying to play... Who knows what actually went down but Leach was not giving in. Back in my day you would not have made a big deal about it. Guess daddy wanted to.

I agree with 2Beez.

I was angry with Texas Tech for a few years, in the end I just added another school that I’m a fan of.... unfortunately it hurt Techs program.

So tired of hearing how poor Mike Leach got hosed.

The man wanted out of Lubbock badly and nobody else would hire him. He started job shopping every year even after we gave him a huge (for the time) contract. He got in the James scuffle and wouldn't apologize and even after he told his boss to go F* himself he was still employed. He tripled down by suing his employer when he likely would have just been suspended for a week or two until everybody calmed down.

I suggest any of you try that with your employer and see if you still have a job. Don't shed a tear for poor Mike, he got what he asked for all the way around.

Craig and Adam James had nothing to do with Leach's leaving Tech. It was the conversation between Kent Hance and Mike Leach to determine who was the real boss of TT. Leach lost. I still root for The Pirate when I can catch him on TV.

Swing Your Sword was a good read...it's his side of the story.

My opinion after hearing the crap in the news and then reading his book. He got railroaded. I don't care as much as I once did but I believe after reading the book my comment was "I don't want anyone to get hurt but if Tech burnt to the ground tomorrow it wouldn't hurt my feelings".

He's a gem and would make any beat writer look awesome with the nuggets he gives them.

All true. As with all things though, perception - not reality - rules. Leach tells “his side” and all of a sudden he’s a martyr who was railroaded. People believe what they want to believe. He’s kinda cool and likeable with good BS so facts don’t really matter.

Leach is a pathetic excuse for a human being who happens to be a pretty good football coach. He is a foul mouthed drunk, whose drinking escapades are very well known and remembered around Lubbock. If he wasn't winning he would have had his asss run off long before that. Kinda sad but true about winning, but that's where the rubber meets the road.

I was at an Letterman's breakfast one year with a couple hundred other Lettermen of all ages, many of who came a long ways for the weekend which happened to be homecoming. We all sat around eating and joking, and it became time for the featured speaker to take the podium, and it happened to be Leach. He rolled in through the door only a minute or two before he was to speak, wearing a sweat suit, looking like he just rolled out of bed after another hard night on the town. I'm quite sure that's exactly what happened. He made an impromptu, 5 minute speach about not much of anything relative to the weekend, turned around, walked out, didn't take comments, questions, nothing. A serious lack of respect for the many Lettermen who traveled great distances to be there. Low life, foul-mouthed drunk is what he is. Gald hes' gone, as he's not the type of person who anyone in there right mind would want representing their company.

Didn't even have to queue the Lettermen story. hammer Do you just copy and paste the same story on all Leach posts? That's a rhetorical question...

Yep, you got a problem with the story? Leach lovers usually hate it, and many do not know the real Leach like I do, which is why I feel it necessary.
