    Nice story on Mike Leech in the Washington Post today.

    You've got an odd little obsession with Leach, Boom.

    Yes I do and proud to admit it. Happily got sucked in watching his Tech offense in a era of blandness before spread hit critical mass.

    Purdue was using the spread long before Leach was at Texas Tech and I'm sure there were several schools that did it before Purdue did.

    Mike Leach and Hal Mumme are speaking at a football coaches clinic at Iowa Wesleyan College (about 30 miles from here) on July 15. Mumme was the head coach and Leach his assistant at IWC in the early 1990s.

    The date is circled on my calendar. The number of columns that could be churned out of that clinic...

    I wonder if Leach and the photog stood in the never-ending line of tourists at the Southernmost Point to get that photo.

    Be sure to ask Mumme to tell the story about signing his first contract with Kentucky.

    Sure there were but not to the level of innovation that Leach brought to Tech. Passing dominant/ No huddle/ extra wide splits. Not saying it was never done but he sure made it fun to watch.
