Surprised no one has taken note of this story yet considering how many wanted Mike Leach and how breathlessly Brian Dohn blogged about Leach's interest in UCLA. From Lubbock, Texas:
This(BN Ed.) weekend's loss 52-30 to Texas A&M made a frustrated Texas Tech Coach Mike Leach say some harsh workds about his players' love lives.
He blamed the loss to the Aggies, in part, on their "fat little girlfriends." That comment, repeated a couple times during the press conference Saturday night is now garnering national attention.
Some people in Lubbock, Texas got a laugh, while others were truly offended. One man even set up a website called fat-little-girlfriend dot com. As of Wednesday night, his site already had four-thousand hits. He insists it's all in good fun and means no offense to Red Raider fans.
But for the girlfriends of the team, it's no laughing matter.
Coach Leach said Saturday night he wouldn't apologize. He said the same thing Monday night.
Here is the video of it:

I don't care what Leach does in Lubbock. That is not our problem. However, how do you think the Bruin community would react if he had made those comments as the Bruin head coach after a tough loss during rebuilding season? Not asking that question to attack Leach at all. I think he is a great coach and he has nothing to prove. However, this kind of stories makes you think a little about whether certain coaches would be the right fit for our community.
Just something to think about.
