    Mike Leach

    Mike Leach was interviewed on 60 Minutes tonight. You can watch it yourself here:
    Texas Tech's Mad Genius Video - CBSNews.com

    Wow... He is one weird guy. He never played college football, and was a lawyer before he was a coach.

    It is an interesting piece, if you missed it you should watch with the link.

    Looks like he may be at TT awhile longer.

    I actually like him more after the interview... He is a VERY weird guy, but I like his style.

    Re: Mike Leach

    Good coach but as an ISU fan I dont fell he is at a huge disadvantage at TT. Glad 2 know we now have 2 really smart coaches on staff.

    I also watched the interview and got a chuckle when they said TT was at a hugh disadvantage recruiting against Texas, Oklahoma, Texas A&M. If they are crying out at being at hugh disadvantage, what the hell are we?

    I will say, I bet if kids were watching this will help there recruiting.

    Re: Mike Leach

    Notice how little they interviewed him....probably cause he is too discombobolated in his delivery. He is one helluva football coach and a really different dude

    Look out John Mclaughlin. Leach has a promising career in weather.

    I like his style. Go outside. There's your weather.

    Makes you want to play for the guy. That can't hurt his recruiting. Like the South doesn't have enough advantages.

    Re: Mike Leach

    He is weird, but in a cool way. I remember reading I think a USA Today article talking about his main interest outside of football being pirates, and his office being full of pirate stuff sent from fans. Crazy.
