What we are seeing and hearing Part II

Other things we are seeing, is that all of the outfield walls are gone at the old War Memorial Stadium on Yanceyville and Lindsey Streets. The traditional walls have been replaced by a chain-link fence and it doesn’t look all that bad but it does look different when yor are used to seeing the stadium layout for all those years. More changes are coming to War Memorial Stadium, Good or Bad, we’ll have to wait and see. Ogi Overman and David Hoggard were supposed to be standing up for us down at the stadium but I guess they got busy or something.

Jim Longworth said on his show on Sunday night on TV 48, on which Ogi and Britt Whitmire were the guests, that we should all listen to Brad and Britt on WZTK 101.1 FM. Jim said that Brad and Britt were carrying on the radio tradition like the great ones on local radio such as the now-retired Dusty Dunn. Jim Longworth said that Jack Murphy was garbage and that we all should listent to his station 101.1 FM.

I have been tuned into 101.1 for awhile now and enjoy the mornings and Allan Handleman in the afternoons. Neal Boortz comes on at 10am and Monday morning he said Mike Leach, the head football at Texas Tech was an ASS. That’s what Boortz said, that Leach is an ASS. Leach ran the score up on Texas A&M on Saturday and Boortz was there and he said former Georgia coach Ray Goff told him there’s no way Leach will go for another score when Texas Tech had A&M at 36-25; they did score another TD and the final was Texas Tech 43-25 and Boortz said the Leach was an ASS. Here’s the football side of things:

Arguably one of the most innovative coaches in the country, Mike Leach has not only transformed Texas Tech Football, but also the face of college football with an all-out aerial assault. This is evidenced by the number of programs incorporating more passing into their schemes than before. Leach’s offense has become a hot, commodity as coaching staffs from across the country have come to Lubbock get a glimpse into what makes the program tick; but none have mastered it like the ninth-year head coach.

Leading the nation’s most prolific passing offenses in the country, Leach, who received the All-American Football Foundation’s Johnny Vaught Head Coach Award in 2006, spreads the field with his exciting brand of football and has guided the Red Raiders to five NCAA passing titles and three total offense titles during his tenure. Leach’s offense produced school records in nearly every passing category in 2000, but surpassed those numbers in each of the last eight seasons. His eight teams have combined for over 151 team and individual records at Tech.

COLLEGE STATION, TEXAS (AP) – Texas Tech coach Mike Leach wasn’t worried when the Red Raiders trailed at the half for the first time this season against Texas A&M on Saturday.

Graham Harrell threw for three touchdowns and ran for two more and No. 7 Texas Tech beat Texas A&M 43-25 on Saturday, giving the Red Raiders their best start in 32 years.

Texas Tech was down 23-20 at the break, after committing two turnovers and eight penalties and giving up 274 yards in the first half. Tech scored on four of six possessions after halftime and held A&M to 32 yards and five first downs.

“Just relax,” Leach said he told his players.

But the Red Raiders didn’t leave Kyle Field without their unorthodox coach creating a stir.

Texas Tech led 36-25 with 24 seconds left when Leach called time out and asked referees to review a run by Shannon Woods to the 1-yard line. The Red Raiders had to run one more play or take a penalty, and Harrell scored a meaningless touchdown on the next snap.

Who is the bad guy here, Boortz or Leach?????
