Mike Leach Has Something to Say About His Players' Girlfriends

↵Ah, Mike Leach, ever the font of ridiculous quotes, served up another doozy in the wake of Texas Tech's defense on Saturday getting gashed by Texas A&M for for 52 points and 321 rushing yards. ↵

↵"As coaches, we failed to make our coaching points more compelling than their fat little girlfriends," said Leach. "For one thing, their fat little girlfriends are telling them what they want to hear, which is 'how great you are' and 'how easy this is going to be.'" ↵

↵Naturally, a great body identity sensitivity freakout ensued, to which Leach extended a deaf ear.
↵
↵Of course, the blame for motivation always falls squarely on the coaches. Chances are, the players aren't relying on their girlfriends, fat or no, to inform them about the difficulty of the upcoming opponent. And even if they are, it's the coaches' job to disabuse them of that idea. Unless he wants to blame the woman in his life for not getting him to do that. ↵
