"No, I am not aplogizing to any of them,'' Leach said. "Absolutely not. You know we closed up that little room over there as coaches, and as coaches we failed to get through to (the players). "It was a failure on the part of coaches and players. As coaches we failed to get through to them, and as coaches we failed to make our coaching points and our points more compelling than their fat little girlfriends.'' Leach went on to say: "Now their fat little girlfriends have some obvious advantages. For one thing, their fat little girlfriends are telling them what they want to hear, which is "how great you are,' and "how easy it's going to be.'' And we had a bunch of people who wanted to win the football game, but nobody wanted to play the football game. "That defies every level of work ethic that exists with regard to football. As coaches we have to solve our failure on reaching them and the players have to listen. I am willing to go to fairly amazing lengths to make that happen.'' Leach, however, won't tolerate distractions. No matter who gets hurt in the process. "I don't know if I will be successful this week or not,'' Leach said. "But I am going to try, and there will be some people inconvenienced. "And if it happens to be their fat little girlfriends, too bad.''
