Mike Leach: "A lot of rumors going around. I haven't talked to anybody at Maryland."


Leach said, "I don't think it would be appropriate" to talk to Maryland now since Friedgen's ouster has not been announced by the school. Note the term "ouster" is used by the writer, not Leach.

Leach's Petition Against ESPN and Spaeth Communications


Why is the Director of Communications and Broadcast Media for Texas Tech University corresponding with Merrie Spaeth of Spaeth Communications, a PR firm retained by Craig James?

The New York Times Gets the Story


Leach and James agree that on Dec. 17, James was placed in the equipment shed — in some places in the deposition it is referred to as a garage — by the head trainer, Steve Pincock. Leach testified that he did not specifically instruct James to go there but said he had no problem with it as James needed to be in a dark place because of his sensitivity to light. (The space is big enough that the offensive linemen go there during special-teams drills to eat ice.) While Adam James said he did not recall anyone locking the closet door, or even if there was a lock, he said several times in the deposition that he was locked in the electrical closet specifically by Leach. He said he characterized it that way because he felt locked in, not because he was actually locked in.

Did Neal Brown's Offense Pass Too Much?

Texas Tech Ticket Sales: Accentuating the Positives

Colorado Likely to Remain in the Big 12 Until 2012


"It appears that Colorado and the Big 12 haven't been able to come to terms over how much the school would pay in departure penalties. Instead of forfeiting millions -- between $9 million and $14.5 million in conference distributions, according to the newspaper -- Colorado would remain in an 11-team Big 12 for one more season." And the Beebe plan gets worse everyday. Wonder how the Aggies are feeling about their $20 million payday now?

Financial Rationale for Pac-10 Expansion


Excellent article (but stops short of comparing potential comparable returns from the SEC). At least we can get a better sense of the numbers in play.

100 Things That Won't Happen in 2010


One of the more interesting claims we've been hearing since new offensive coordinator Neal Brown assumed the reins at Texas Tech, is that the Red Raiders' new and improved NASCAR offense...

Briles. In his own words.


"You left Stephenville to become running backs coach at Texas Tech. That was the same year Mike Leach arrived in Lubbock . What was it like working with Mike? How similar is your offensive philosophy to his? We were on the ground floor of the Texas Tech process. Spike [Dykes] had done a great job there for many years. I think at that time, they had been to a bowl nine of the past ten years. That situation has continued there since then. The thing about Leach and his philosophy – like with Hal Mumme at Kentucky, Al Wesland at Valdosta – is it’s set, it’s patternized, and you do what you do. The thing I was impressed about was that they had what they had, they believed in it, and it was successful for them." Quite a response. When did stupidity become a point of view?
