until Texas vs Kansas

Thursday, October 20


Be careful what you wish for

Here's a "Leachism" from Texas Tech's game notes:

Leach on "Running up the Score:"
"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."

Fine, run up the score against overmatched opposition. Have your QB throw for 650 yards like you're playing a video game. But don't expect anyone to take your team seriously as an offensive machine just because you pad your stats every week.

Imagine what kind of stats Texas players would have if Mack thought this way. Texas would beat Rice and Louisiana-Lafayette 120-0.

Since this is the way Mikey thinks football should be played, just once I'd like to see Mack keep his foot on the gas late in the game. He didn't against Oklahoma, and I doubt he will on Saturday. But I know he could, and deep inside I bet there's a part of him that would love to give Mikey a taste of his own medicine as payback for all the coaches who had to watch Tech throw deep with the game out of reach.

Tech is a joke.


You are a joke for posting this on here.
