    Lubbock is night day different than the rest of those cities. For one, they actually have green grass.

    I'm so dumb I thought GT could get him and told people that was who I wanted us to hire - and the guy ends up first at USC as head coach in waiting then as a pro football head coach. I didn't know I was arguing for hiring the equivalent of the evil one - Saban. But after all he had been fired by Texas Tech - who knew! I have always like his offense.

    My recollection is they had a lot of ups and downs. It was classic great-coaches-meet-mediocre-players kinda stuff.

    Knight did pretty well, but for Leach those records seem to me to support my recollection rather than refute it. He couldn't manage a winning conference record in half his seasons.
