    Leach fined Big 12-record $10K for ripping officials

    ESPN - Texas Tech's Leach fined $10K for ripping refs - College Football

    LUBBOCK, Texas -- The Big 12 is slapping Texas Tech coach Mike Leach with the largest fine in conference history for comments he made about officiating last weekend.

    Leach's fine of $10,000, twice the previous high, was announced Tuesday.

    After No. 12 Texas beat the Red Raiders 59-43 Saturday, Leach condemned the officiating crew in Austin, calling their work during the game "a complete travesty."

    The eighth-year coach was upset officials disallowed two Tech touchdowns in the third quarter, the first on an overrule after reviewing video that clearly showed the receiver let the ball hit the ground. A TD pass on the next play was negated by a holding penalty.

    So he's mad because his player dropped the ball, and another player cheated?

    Sounds a little like Monsieur Pinkel, non?

    Now we can see how their passing game is so good - they don't need to actually complete the pass for it to count.

    I don't believe that he has much of an argument with these 2 calls, but I think that we can all agree that the Big 12 refs have been horrible at times.
