    Mike Leach spotted in Seattle

    ESPN - Big 12

    Interesting. People always assume if Leach would leave Tech it would be somewhere on the west coast, but if he didn't go to UCLA last year, I don't think he'd go to Washington which is in a bigger hole than UCLA was.

    He wanted UCLA, they didn't want him. Something about not wanting to cheat. They got slick rick instead.

    Re: Mike Leach spotted in Seattle

    Why would he leave Tech for Washington? That seems like a step down.

    Probably just interviewing to leverage a bigger paycheck from Tech....

    When I first saw this I thought about him taking over the Seahawks.

    First Washington is on the West Coast. Second I don't remember Mike Leach cheating at anything. Basically it's just everyone who always dogs leach and tells everyone his system don't work when it clearly does. Third Washinton is a sleaping Giant.

    Re: Mike Leach spotted in Seattle

    It could also be Leach interviewing with any school in Seattle. What better way to keep it hush than to interview off campus. I like to think that's just Chizik finding our new OC.

    If I'm Leach........ (which would be hilarious)

    I look at my current situation in the South. You have two behemeaths in UT & OU that will always outspend, outrecruit, and outtradition you. (I may have made that last word up).

    Then you have OSU pouring boat loads of $ into its program. Thanks T.Boone. The competition is just getting steeper. That doesn't even mention the former titan A&M that does have the ability to spend and recruit. This is as tough a 6 team gauntlet in the NCAA as there is.

    I may be wrong, but I think Tech has climbed to the highest point of it's figurative football mountain. Standing toe to toe with OU/Texas was about as much as they can ever ask for. I don't see them being able to sustain this year in and year out.

    Leach may see the Pac 10 as another adventure (in a pirate sense). He may also be bored with going to the Cotton bowl and Holiday bowl over and over. I know I wouldn't mind! Plus, Washington did win a National title in the early 90's I think, and has the fan base and resources to do well. Would be a surprise but I can definitely see it happening. In Seattle he can take his lady out to all sorts of nice restuarants too.

    Sorry if I made it sound like Leach is the cheater. I was trying to say that he is a good coach and does things on the up & up. Slick Rick is the one who cheats!

    Re: Mike Leach spotted in Seattle

    what makes Washington a sleeping giant? I asked someone in the business about it, and he commented that Washington's facilities are mediocre at best and it isn't that great of a job.
    Just curious.

    Washington isn't that far removed from the Rose Bowl... Haven't they won a couple of National Championships?

    Because they recruit against Washington State and that is in the middle of nowhere.

    Also they have tradition and the stadium is in a beautiful setting. They actually have party cove type tailgating on the water.

    LOL, someone watched Mike Leach's dating advice!
