Leach might be the big name in football because a) he’s bananas and b) because he has Texas Tech at 11-1 (after playing two, yes two, FCS opponents) but let’s keep it real folks.
I present you two reasons not to fear the consumate pirate in the best damn conference on college football.
Exhibit A: The 2006 Cotton Bowl: Alabama 13 Texas Tech 10
and even more telling,
Exhibit B: Greg McElroy
If Shula could beat out Leach for a kid from his own state (Texas at that time), I don’t think Saban will have much to worry about.
