Mike Leach's attorney gave a Lubbock television station an exclusive tour of the two rooms Adam James was asked to stand in by Texas Tech coach Mike Leach. Please note that if you want an attorney who wears a tie and spiffs up for the camera, your name is not Mike Leach, and rumpled Ted Liggett is not the attorney you're looking for, buddy.
(HT: Double T Nation's ongoing coverage.) The attorney will not say the "S-H-E-D" word, but he also cannot dodge the strange practice of sequestering an injured player, something no one on either side has disputed. Leach's former offensive coordinator Dana Holgorsen chimed in on the matter via email, though, and had harsh words for the accuser, Adam James.
"I was opposed to doing so in (the) belief he was not a D1 football player," Holgorsen writes in his e-mail. "Coach Leach overrode my opinion and Adam became a Red Raider. During the rest of my time at Texas Tech I was Adam's position coach where I always remained critical of Adam's ability to play at this level due to being lazy in not only the classroom but also in the offseason and during practice."Coach Leach was the one who kept saying he believed Adam would eventually contribute. Adam's teammates believed he was selfish and were constantly getting on him for lack of effort as they sensed entitlement on his part due to his father being a very good football player.
Oh, this is getting more fun by the minute.
