I'm so sorry I didn't get a chance to write about this yesterday morning, I really am. Work's been entirely too hectic, blah, blah, blah. I know, no excuses.
LAJ's Don Williams got a great article out of Mike Leach and the new rule changes. There are some rules that he's glad got changed, and others, not so much. It's times like these where Don is so glad he gets to cover Texas Tech football and Coach Leach, the story literally writes itself.
We discussed yesterday about the "clock rule" being returned to its old state, but now, Coach Leach has another cause, apparently called team timeouts willl be shortened from 65 seconds to 30 seconds. Leach's reaction:
Thankfully Leach isn't done. Here's how he really feels about the "time out rule" and the "clock rule":
Mike has also has a recommendation for the committee in charge of these things:
Coach Leach has figured out a way to protest this new "time out rule":
"Because I'm against the entire thing, I will strategically never tell them if I'm going to take a penalty or not, so I'm thereby screwing TV of a potential opportunity for a commercial,'' Leach said. "I'm like the gnat on 'The Love Boat' that's trying to sink it.
"If we're on a TV (network) I like a lot, I might cut a deal before the game,'' Leach added. "Tell them if I call timeout, I'm going to take a penalty before we go back out there, so you can go to commercial. Otherwise, I'm not going to tell them, so they're on their own.''
I love Coach Leach, I really do.
