Chris Low: Some of my inside sources are drying up because Tennessee athletic director Mike Hamilton is making all of his closest aides sign affidavits promising not to leak any information about the coaching search. What he doesn't know is that his office is bugged. I still think the leaders (alphabetically) are Cincinnati coach Brian Kelly, former Raiders coach Lane Kiffin and Texas Tech coach Mike Leach.
Could Leach take this system to another big-time football factory and make it work?
If he was at big-time factory and they let him do what he does, and not get in the way, it would be unfair. I mean, is it moral to score 100 points every game? Of course, people will catch up. They already are catching up. But if he had gone to say, U.S.C., 10 years ago and installed his system there, it would be comical. He would score every time - and he would have a defense by default because he would get great athletes.
Absolutely disgusting. As a Texas Tech alumnus and Red Raider fan, I am appalled at what Mike Leach is doing with this program. 10 wins? And we still have 2 games left in the regular season. As any Aggie, Longhorn, or Sooner will tell you, we Red Raiders are content with 7 or 8 win seasons and mid-tier bowls. Ten wins is completely unacceptable. We need to show him the door right away or else this program is going to be highly successful on a regular basis.
