Texas Tech

I (Still) Love Mike Leach

Not just because his free-wheelin’, pirate-lovin’, pass-happy Texas Tech Red Raiders are up to 10th in the nation this year. I’ve always loved Leach.

Way I remember it, I once even endorsed him to be Bill Parcells’ replacement as head coach of the Dallas Cowboys.

“Conversate ... ”?

“Watch her eat meat ... ”?

“Bizarre-looking characters ... ”?

“Trade computer schemes and mischief ... ”?

I see absolutely no reason not to double-down on my affection. -- Richie Whitt
