I love how Tech guys are trying to tear this kid down to defend your coach, or soon to be ex-coach. He probably is an entitled spoiled jerk. That has nothing to do with this situation though. You can call a shed a garage all you want, bottom line is he should have been in some sort of medical facility. With all the attention concussions have gotten so recently, only an idiot would do what Leach did knowing full well his dad is a major player in the biggest sports media conglomerate around. All the ex players and coaches can defend him until the cows come home and it won't make a bit of difference, Craig James is a media guy and in case you haven't noticed those guys stick together. Right or wrong doesn't matter, it's about perception.
As for the school, I do believe they have acted too hastily and it's pretty obvious they want Leach gone. I believe they never wanted him back last year but caved to the local pressure, likely with the idea that they would can him first chance they got so as to appease the local yokels in Lubbock. What puzzles me is where TTU got this ego that they think they are historically good enough to get rid of the only good coach they've ever had. This will guarantee they don't attract a good one when Leach is gone. Hope you guys enjoyed your brief stint as a decent team because it's back to the basement for you.
your dislike of Tech is blinding you.
No he shouldn't. He was already checked out by the trainers and team doctors, they said he was fine to be on the field, but coach put him out of the light so he wouldn't complain.
If a player has an injury at TTU they still have to practice .... guys with shoulder injuries still have to run, guys with leg injuries have to do upper body exercises, guys don't just get to sit and rest.
So coach made sure Adam James stayed on his feet somewhere the light would not bother him. Players with minor injuries don't get to take vacations. Considering that James is an entitled slacker, he just used this as an excuse to complain to daddy.
Leach's torture chamber
local yokels? why the shots at Lubbock? What year did you graduate from UT? Or are you just another drop-out that bought a burnt orange shirt at walmart?
I don't hate TTU, they don't matter enough to hate, like any program with no history and a 1 year blip of playing with the big boys. Local yokels isn't a shot at Lubbock, just a phrase, don't get your panties in a bunch (too late). We've had the talk about where I went to college before, remember I didn't have mommy and daddy to pay for me so I went in the military and went to schools on base on my dime when I wasn't being deployed. So you can save the character assasination attempts on me.
Now back to the original story, again James's character means jack s**t here, the coach made a stupid decision and now has to deal with it. He obviously saw a lot of James' dad, knew who he was, and unless he's complete moron, knew that anything relating to him would end up on Sportscenter. The smart thing to do, since the kid apparently was a meaningless player, would have been to just send him away from the facility to maybe, I don't know, a hopsital, just to be covered. I'm not saying it's right, it's just the way it is. Leach should have been smart enough to see this coming, he either wasn't or wants out. Being that this actually happened 2 weeks ago and they just now suspended, it's pretty obvious what the school intends to do, they're trying to ruin this guy so they can justify canning him, the James' are just the vehicle, trashing them does nothing.
