The wit and wisdom of Mike Leach

Kyle gives Leach what for in this post, and scores some telling points.

But honestly, I’ve got to tell you that some of what Leach has directed at the Texas A & M coaching staff in the wake of their Stephen McGee dustup is high grade, laugh-your-ass-off sarcasm.  Take a look at this quote that Chris Brown posted:

“I’ve always said that it is truly exciting to play Texas A&M – the quality of coaches they have, the great team and great tradition and, above all, the quality of players they have,” Leach continued. “I’ve always known A&M had great players. The fact that they have the luxury to put a third- or fourth-round draft pick on the bench, to me, identifies what a truly great team they are.

“It’s an honor for us at Texas Tech to have the opportunity to play them. There are numerous players on our team that will never get a look or play a down in the NFL, so you can imagine how exciting it is for me and them to go play a team the magnitude of Texas A&M and look over there on the bench and see third- and fourth-round draft picks.”


This stuff is even funnier when you contrast it with Mike Sherman’s lame “official comments”.

“Coach Franchione’s job wasn’t to try and make Stephen an NFL quarterback, it was to win football games…”

Judging from the record, you could have fooled me.


UPDATE: I should have known somebody in the Volnation would want to make the analogy between Leach and the Laner.  The problem with that comparison is that Junior isn’t funny.  At least not intentionally.


UPDATE #2: From Double-T Nation, another point in Leach’s favor“Complain about Leach all you want, but he has the highest public university graduation rate among football players in the NCAA.” Touché, sir.
