    Does Mike Leach remind anyone of Larry Eustachy?

    When I listen to this guy talk, I always think back to Larry. He sounds like, acts/talks a little odd like Larry at times, but he is one hell of a coach! Anyone else get this type of vibe?

    Yes, and I also think the situation that led to Leach's firing reminds me of Larry. In both cases they had done numerous things to **** off the administration, but couldn't be fired because of past success. All the admin needed was a scandal to force their removal.

    Re: Does Mike Leach remind anyone of Larry Eustachy?

    Mike Leach - 10 seasons as a Div I college football head coach - 10 bowl games

    Larry Eustachy - 19 seasons as a Div I college basketball head coach - 3 NCAA tournaments

    I don't see the similarity.


    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    My ignore list: splitidentity, tarheelhawk,superdorf, clones_jer. That is all.

    LE was at ISU for 5 years. If he was here for 5 more, the situation would have been different. You have to be better than the top half of team in backetball to go to the tourney.

    If half of Leach's Head Coaching years were at Utah State and Southern Miss, he would have had less Bowl Games.

    I agree Cyhop - I'm talking more personalities issues than anything else.

    Yeah, most rational posters could realize that and not assume you meant that they accomplished exactly the same success.

    Overall I think Leach was actually more brash and abrasive towards his administration. LE had a problem and the PR nightmare got him canned. I wish he could have gotten treatment and stuck around for a while.

    Yes. Two odd personalities.

    I don't see the similarity.
    LE: 2 conference titles, one conference tournament title.

    ML: No titles.

    I don't see the similarity either.

    I would still take him as a coach, record at ISU tells you why

    You can count me in on that too. My passion for basketball took a huge hit with the LE departure.


    Never argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience.
