Ted Liggett, Mike Leach's Attorney, Kills ESPN With Boredom

Ted Liggett, the attorney for beleaguered Texas Tech coach Mike Leach, just destroyed all before him on ESPN with his lawyerness. Not only did he talk at a pace that you could hear slowly strangling the life out of the broadcast and the ADD-stricken producers, he simply refused to answer a third of the questions, parried away another third as ridiculous, and rewrote the remainder in lawyerly terms that fit his case. For ten minutes he assumed control of ESPN and ground it to a snail’s pace in a performance best described as somewhere between “Lionel Hutzian” and “Matlock-ish.” Two things are clear: lawyers don’t appear on television often because most of them don’t talk quickly enough, and Mike Leach isn’t going down at Texas Tech without a gnarly, shameless fight.
