Leach and Sherman Continue War of Words; Leach Winning


If you haven't been following Mike Leach's comments about Stephen McGee (which were really more an indictment of the NFL at first, until Mike Sherman and McGee took offense), see here. After Sherman's comments stating that Leach doesn't know what he's talking about and shouldn't be commenting on his (Sherman's) coaching decisions (despite the fact that Leach was criticizing NFL talent evaluators in the first place and not Sherman), Leach went in for the kill: "I’ve always said that it is truly exciting to play Texas A&M - the quality of coaches they have, the great team and great tradition and, above all, the quality of players they have," Leach continued. "I’ve always known A&M had great players. The fact that they have the luxury to put a third- or fourth-round draft pick on the bench, to me, identifies what a truly great team they are. "It’s an honor for us at Texas Tech to have the opportunity to play them. There are numerous players on our team that will never get a look or play a down in the NFL, so you can imagine how exciting it is for me and them to go play a team the magnitude of Texas A&M and look over there on the bench and see third- and fourth-round draft picks." The article continues: "Leach has been a burr under Aggie saddles. His teams have beaten A&M seven times in the last eight years, extending Tech’s recent dominance to 11-3 in the series since 1995."
