Former SMU running back and ESPN broadcaster Craig James is running for a senate position in Texas and addressed his notorious conflict with Mike Leach by calling the Washington State football coach a “bully” in a recent video.
James became eternally despised when it was learned he teamed with a PR company and used his position at ESPN to help get Mike Leach fired as head football coach at Texas Tech. James was unhappy about the lack of playing time for his son Adam, who was a receiver on the team. The Texas Tech administration went along with the smear campaign because they didn’t want to pay Leach a large financial bonus he was due.
In the video, James is interviewed by his daughter and says “If I see wrong, I will stand up against it. I will never let something go by that is a bully or someone that has done something wrong.”
James fails to mention that he was calling Texas Tech coaches during games to tell them to play his son. He leaves out the part about teaming with a PR fir...
BEST OF MAXIM
Oh Mike Leach, how we have missed you and your delightful outlook on life and college football. From your "Fat Little Girlfriends" speech to you unnatural (and possibly unhealthy) obsession with pirates, you give us all such joy in our lives when you go off script. Take for example the latest gem from the Washington State head coach, which comes after some enterprising...
As big as the Mike Leach hiring was, It was met with some criticism, with some pessimism thrown in for good nature.
How un-Washington State like is this hire? Talk about bucking the norm.
I recently heard a great interview on Sports Radio KJR with WSU Cougars new head football coach Mike Leach.
Pretty classic Leachism's flying around.
Check them out.
Here's the clip...
Cornerback William Gay of course signed with the Arizona Cardinals this past weekend after five seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers and he joined John Harris on Trib Live Radio to talk about his time in Pittsburgh and the opportunity he now has ahead of him in Arizona.
Late in the interview Harris asked Gay if the money was the real reason he chose to sign with the Cardinals instead...
PULLMAN — Day Four of Mike Leach's first spring season at WSU was eventful on and off the field. A few bodies were missing Thursday, including one -- touted Spokane tight end Aaron Dunn -- who won’t return. The defense continued to put smile on defensive coordinator Mike Breske’s face, and d-line coach Joe Salave’a decided to line up with his players and show exactly...
ON TUESDAY AFTERNOON, when the Cougs hold their third spring practice, Mike Leach will begin installing the final one-third of his offense, although with the caveat that "all" is a relative term and there's always room for improvement. But still. Two-thirds of Leach's high powered Air Raid offense is already installed and the Cougs haven't even put the pads on yet?
They say March comes in like a lion, and goes out like a lamb. If you’ve been following the Arizona Cardinals’ free agency endeavors, this saying has hit home a little too close.
As detailed last week, the Cardinals entered the month of March and the free agency period excited about the prospects of adding former Indianapolis Colts QB and future Hall-of-Famer Peyton Manning...
MIKE LEACH IN A radio interview with KJR-AM on Monday afternoon said Andrei Lintz is one to keep an eye on, that the door might not be permanently shut on Sekope Kaufusi and that the QB battle may go for awhile, even though Jeff Tuel has been better than advertised.
Hot News for OG Deuce Lutui
The dust has settled and Peyton Manning is a Denver Bronco. The Cardinals are ready to move forward with Kevin Kolb and John Skelton, but will losing out on Manning haunt Arizona?
Happy Friday Cougs, and happy last weekday of March (or is it SMARCH, what with this crazy weather we've seen lately? I know I've used this picture before, but wow, Lousy SMARCH weather). Anyway, there's a lot to get to in the Coug universe, with a ton of recaps, interviews, and news-n-stuff. So continue on after.....
First, yeah, this has been getting...
