From the DMN, we find out that Ofa Mohetau has been suspended for the Insight Bowl for violating team rules and Dewayne Baziel and Jared Williams have been dismissed from the team.
DMN's Tim MacMahon grabs a quote from former Tech QB, Kliff Kingsbury on whether or not Leach should go to Miami if given the opportunity:
I always think that at some point Miami was not a national powerhouse. At some point, a school finds a coach who leads that program from mediocrity to a national championship. I know that those are high expectations, but realistically, if kids will go to Norman or Lincoln (no offense to either of those fine cities) then they'll come to Tech. We just have to have a program that kids want to be a part of and we're slowly but surely working towards that.
LAJ's Don Williams reports that Leach is simply happy to be practicing and moving towards preparing for the Insight Bowl. Just think, he could have that kind of media intensity all of the time if he took the Miami job. I just can't see Leach taking on that sort of mainstream media.
Leach has this to say about the distraction:

Finally, congratulations to Sonny Dykes who appears he will formally accept the Arizona coaching position on Friday.
