Sco’ and sco’ some mo’.

Say what you will about Mike Leach, but he’s not one to take his foot off the gas pedal.  Last night, in a 69-28 rout of Arizona, his starting quarterback threw his seventh touchdown pass of the game with seven minutes left in the fourth quarter and his team up by 34.

That’s Spurrier-esque.

    His legacy will be, “I did it my way”. He doesn’t care what anyone else thinks.

    They hung half a hundred on em. In the first half! Dang.

    Style points over Oklahoma could ultimately play off for them.

    I was about to apologize for Leach by saying that, with 55 in the first half, they likely let the third-string QB throw it around a bit. But no. That was Minshew throwing a bomb halfway through the 4th with a 62-28 lead.

    This kind of behavior is what will keep Leach from ever being more than a curiosity. And I hope they get their asses kicked by someone soon so we end any speculation of them playing in the playoff (however unlikely that would be, I’d still like to see them lose).

      Going into the game you are a one loss team, 8th in the CFP rankings behind several others for a playoff spot. Style points matter in college football. He really had no choice if he wants to make the playoff.

    In addition to his “I’ve Always Been Crazy” personna, he also has the excuse that he doesn’t know any other way to call plays. He was always passing the ball even when trying to run time off the clock. It might be resented by many but I don’t think he meant it to be a dick like SOS and Urbie was doing to us. Bad look though if you are in Sumlin’s position.

    I think he wanted Minshew to break the record. So what?

    My guess is Leech is pushing his guy for the heisman….I’m pretty sure he said something about Minshew needing all the stats and exposure he can get for the award earlier on in the season.

    Not that it’s an excuse for running it up, just his reasoning I guess?

      Well, if he said that he is guilty if running it up and further explains why the Heisman should not get that much attention as it is just another individual award in a total team game.
