    Mike Leach Quotes

    Since we probably won't be hearing many more memorable quotes from him (at TT anyway), I thought it would be good to bring up why most people liked the guy:

    6. I know that in Ames, Iowa, they fancy themselves being experts on the wind, but in Lubbock, Texas, well put our wind up against your wind in Iowa. We practice against it all the time.
    11. At no level do I see where the Red Raider football team is responsible at all for any tortillas being thrown. We watch over them very carefully, and before they ever go on the field, we ensure that none of them have tortillas.

    2. “I expect you to score.”
    - To the second string offense, at the half time of the 2003 Iowa State game.
    God that's embarrassing. I'm not sure if it can ever get worse than 2003.

    On the officials in the 2007 Tech-Texas game in Austin:
    "It's a little like breakfast; you eat ham and eggs. As coaches and players, we're like the ham. You see, the chicken's involved but the pig's committed. We're like the pig, they're like the chicken. They're involved, but everything we have rides on this."

    My favorite. thought it would have made the list

    Not an original quote so maybe that's why.

    Well, considering what Seneca Wallace and ISU did to TT in 2002, I can see why he'd want to press the issue in a year we couldn't do anything about it (somebody post "The Run" for me - I'm not taking the time this morning to learn how to post YouTube from my BlackBerry)

    Re: Mike Leach Quotes

    My favorite is the one after he beat the Hiskers 70-10!

    On running up the score against Nebraska in 2004 (the final as 70-10):
    "The interesting thing about football is that football is the only sport where you quit playing when you get a lead. In golf, you keep trying to score well when you’re ahead.

    "In basketball, they don’t quit shooting when they’re ahead. In hockey, they don’t quit shooting when they’re ahead. In boxing, you don’t quit punching when you’re ahead. But in football, somehow magically, you’re supposed to quit playing when you’re ahead. Well, I don’t subscribe to that. I don’t do it like that. And you know, the truth of the matter is, Nebraska never has either."

    "Cindy, you know by tattling on your friends, you're really just tattling on yourself."

    That may actually be a Mike Brady quote, but I like it either way.
