    It takes some Texas sized balls to say some of the things he says.

    Hell, a lot of the things he says.

    I love it, too, but it is also why he'll be stuck in Lubbock for his career.

    I don't think that concerns him at all.

    One could do much worse than Lubbock for football. And how many of these wannabe programs should be fighting each other to get Mike Leach?

    Just when I thought I couldn't like the guy more ...

    Can't explain the pick of McGee, but I can explain that Crabtree and Harrell are part of a system that is great at producing points in college, and not great at fooling the NFL. Welker is successful because he is used the way Leach used him. Can't think of another T.Tech offensive player under Leach who has been a big deal in the NFL.

    Can understand the knock on Graham Harrell. Accurate arms aren't always powerful arms - see Danny Wuerffel. But Michael Crabtree was and is the goods. Doesn't have blazing speed, but might be the most polished wideout to go through the system since Larry Fitzgerald, and IMO proved he was more than a system wideout for Mike Leach.

    Harrell is now one of the nondivas in Cleveland.

    I have a hard time understanding how someone with as little production as McGee -- I know, I know Brady, Brad Johnson (I'd say they are exceptions)-- could be considered draftable in the fourth round or whatever.

    Doesn't production mean anything?

    I agree. It blows my mind from time to time.

    The one thing I was confused by -- did he sign a contract or is he just going to mini-camp in hopes of getting asked to sign a contract and then getting to go to training camp?

    Because what the Browns need is MORE quarterbacks.
