If you gave an award for the worst Pac-12 coaching job this football season, Mike Leach would win so convincingly that you'd have to name the dishonor after him.

How's the Empty Corpse Award sound?

Leach, the ever-insulting, never-refraining Washington State coach, ruined a chance to be immediately competitive in his first season in Pullman. He blew it in stupefying fashion, with the kind of fireworks that you thought you'd only see from his renowned offensive scheme. For all the justified celebration that his hiring caused 11 months ago, Leach's honeymoon period ended quicker than it took his Texas Tech teams to drive 80 yards.

Whether Leach succeeds or

Whether Leach succeeds or fails, don't surprised the next time he greets controversy. He comes with two guarantees: He'll build an explosive offense and create cringe-worthy headlines. That is who he is. He's not changing.

AJ's Agenda Is Great Comedy

To Raider Buzz and the nameless AJ Stiff who ran the article:

I congratulate you on the occasion of the great joy you took in running this item. BUT YOU WASTED YOUR TIME.

Nobody enjoyed Coach X's teams more than I, but on the day Coach X signed a contract that will pay him $11,000,000.00 for five years work I let Coach X go his way--he doesn't need any of us anymore.

One other thing: Dicky Grigg won't be called in by WSU to cheat Coach X out of pay for work completed. Coach X will collect every cent in accordance with the terms and conditions of the employment agreement.

Again, I trust you had a great time printing the article.

But you wasted your time.

Not to Worry, DFW.....

Nobody named Hance, Scovell, Turner, Anders, White, or Sowell has anything to do with the program in Pullman.

@Nashville

A reminder that Texas Tech had never lost a home football game to OSU before 2010.

They are 0-2 at home since then.

I trust you are entirely content. Happy Trails.

No. Not entirely content. Just sick to death of you and all the other whacked out Democrats continuing to whine and complain about the administration. I still don't give a rat's patute. Yes I am extremely glad that Leach is gone after reading this article. The man is a nut job that will be fired sooner than later because of his antics. He will eventually embarrass WSU.

Did Hance ask you to run this?

Its interesting that you would post this negative article about Leach while ignoring this one:

Fair and Balanced

All the AJ is doing is continuing their superb journalism, being fair and balanced all along of course. Everyone respects their integrity as sports journalists. How could anyone second guess their objectivity?

We only know when the AJ crosses their own standards of ridiculous because that's when Mr. Greenberg comes to the rescue, or so he thinks. And then, he just embarrasses the South Plains even more by insulting its common sense.

It is a shame that it has taken the audience of this "fair and balanced" media world we've endured to finally start seeing the light, but it's happening. And as it occurs, it isolates more and more the truly dishonest and distorted wreckoffs who continue to support the lying liars atop the BS mountain from which they spew.

did you type this from under Hance's desk?

Leach is several times the coach T Tub is. Leach will turn W St around. Of course it appears T Tub has turned our Raiders around, the problem is that they were headed the right direction to begin with.

Some of us that post here will use our actual picture and real name, that should be a minimum requirement the cowards at the buzz. Act like you got a pair and let folks know who you are.

@ Facts

A reminder that Texas Tech never won at OU (0-5), at Missouri (0-3), or at Colorado (0-2) under Leach either. He was also sub par at Oklahoma St. (1-4). That's a combined 1-14 (7%) on the road against those conference teams in his tenure.
