Do not want
Thats strange, I thought cats liked water.
Uh, you may want to re-word this!
that was the basis
I mean... I don't know how old you are... but 234 text messages to 45 prospective athletes by one coach? I know people in college probably send and recieve at least 100-200 texts a day if not more.
Thats... 5.2 texts to each person? Over how much time I wonder? And some probably responded so there was a quick conversation...
To be fair... I'd probably say on an average day I send about... 150-200 texts a day? It's really not a lot at all.
I know it's illigal... but it's not exactly like texting is an obvious thing that Mike Leach would definitely know about, especially if it's only 234 texts by one coach. If that's the reason we didn't hire him I'd be concerned about our program/fan base/decision makers.
To cross anyone off for something like this is stupid. I'm not a Leach guy, but goodness... this is just stupid.
between ESPN and myself. but texting is considered a major violation in the same vein as stretching.
i disagree, though, that it crosses him off. texting was forbidden and they did it anyways. hiring a guy who's been self-reported for violations to a school on probation for... NCAA violations will NEVER happen
except at usc.
(note: i am too lazy to look up if this is a fair comparison. fortunately it's not important.)
I didn't mean to spew my annoyance about this at you... I copied and pasted that remark about the texting from another thread.
Ah totally missed it, i gave up on the main board and have been F5'ing it all day, since I can't post on Brian's posts on the main page.
Leach= Pirate version of Greg Robinson
Definitely this. I thought the pirates got him at first.
... even the smallest chance of mike leach being hired would give me nightmares.
Great Avatar.... I like to my party with my peeps....
Ahhh, excuse me, IM NOT DEAD!!!!
We have had a thread started about Leach, Jim Harbaugh (relieved he isn't coming), Les Miles, Hoke (Jesus, gulp), but no threads talking about pros and cons about Patterson. Someone with an iphone do it! The man needs some attention!
Update: Now Dungry too!
You sir are very much alive and would like to see you on the sidelines at The Big House.
Thanks for the compliment, but I meant Gary Patterson......
Title seriously made me think for a moment that Rick Leach had passed.
that a post mortem would be written a bit more respectful.
Perhaps. But this really is not a good thread title IMO. I bet I am not the only one to momentarily panic.
I think it would say "Leach: DEADT"
after watching how RR was treated here. Rick was a staunch supporter of RR and saw the potential while realizing that RR needed time.
The title made me think that someone named "Leach" had pinched a horrific duece that stunk up the whole house.
Leach is a pirate hooker.
I posted this info in another thread. Granted, threads now have eleventybillion posts each.
Also, put "Mike" in the title. "Leach" on a Michigan site usually refers to Rick.
He was a Michigan QB too, and he played baseball as well, so he can be versatile in his offense... How's Wheatley doing at Syracuse? Ready to move on yet?
I didn't realize he was metaphorically alive any more than I was.
Don't want to start a new thread, but Rumeal Robinson was sentenced to 6.5 years in prison. I still love him, though.
<sigh> free throws win championships
This isn't really news... Texas Tech is already serving self-imposed sanctions over this. This is just the NCAA accepting their sanctions.
All this over a couple hundred texts. Sounds like its about on the same level is stretching 20 extra minutes a week.
Great offensive mind, but I'm looking for something a little more....defensive.
How bout that Gary Patterson.
OMG can this be anymore obvious?
But of course the Detroit media, and therefore the average M fan, is only thinking: Hoke or Miles? I hope Brandon has more sense than that.
after the search is over if someone were able to find out who actually was on DB's short list.
I thought Leach would make an intriguing hire, but I mean, he's basically Rodriguez, so you can guess how well that would go over with certain people.
It does shed some light on why Maryland backed off.
I see what you did there.
what I d..... uh yes, yes I did, and totally on purpose too. I never make accidental jokes.
It would be a disservice to the football watching nation to take Mike Leach away from his microphone .. some of the best (such a versatile word) commentary I've ever heard.
but I will still pine for the unintentional comedy that would've been every Pirate interaction with the bluehairs. His "fat little girlfriends" rant was one of the greatest moments in oral diarrhea ever.
Can anyone sum up how he went from a possibility some years ago, to really not even in consideration.
I am not interested in him as our coach, trying to understand how he went from near the top of lists to nowhere on them...
isn't exactly a resume booster.
Added to this resume in the top spot:
|Indiana Hoosiers (Big Ten Conference) (1997–2001)|
I nearly had a heart attack, I thought Ricky Leach had died...
Been riding for four days with several letters for one J. Harbaugh. Just arrived and got telegraph message. Condolences to the Leach family. RIP.
He would never have been a candidate anyway.
Mike Leach will be named head football coach at the University of Michigan on the same day that Glenn Beck is named dean of the University of Michigan Law School.
Thank God. Dude makes Les Miles look Lloyd-Carr-ethical.
in the land of Balamama and such where 8 scholarships does not really mean 8 scholarships. Hard to be clean and successfull in that conferance.
Mike Leach was never alive, was he? I mean after we ran an incredibly honest (except for stretchgate) coach who always (it would seem) had the welfare of his players at the forefront of his mind out of town for being too gimmicky and not Michigan-y enough, we were gonna hire Leach?
Yikes. Are some of you all right?
Get ready for Hoke, boys. I'm sure he's a fine man and a decent coach, but my vision of the post-RR era did not include a 53-year old MAC and WAC coach with a losing record. Unshakeable faith in the pimp hand of David Brandon now officially shaken like a bad martini.
Such a sensible, solid choice. I mean, I don't even want to think it because he would be so reasonable a choice.
DweeB seems like a nice guy, but the corporate world turned him into a giant CYA nerd. Doesn't seem very ballsy to me at this point. I doubt he'd hire Patterson, but I guess we shall see.
Was'nt Leach the same coach a while back who banned his players from texting?
