Stealing SECs thunder? Really? Rich Rodriguez left Michigan
following allegations from his own players that he consistantly broke NCAA
rules. Mike Leach never played a down of college football but he did
graduate from law school and is using those skills to sue his old school Texas
Tech.Thunder? What Thunder? Looks like more of the same for the
PAC12, time in court and suffering under sanctions.
I'm not as worried about RichRod as I am about Leach's team. Arizona's team at
the moment looks like it's set up for more of a pro style offense, not
Rodriguez's, so we're looking at potentially a couple years before his system
really gets rolling anyway. And he really only looked impressive in the Big
East, not as strong as the Pac.Leach looks like he already has a
stable of players that fit him very well. What does "playing a down of
college football" have to do with coaching? He put together some of the
scariest offenses in the country every single year with the Big XII's cast-offs,
players that Wazzu is very used to having.Oh and that team
"suffering under sanctions" is an early national championship
favorite, with Utah being seen as one of their biggest obstacles.
"Oh and that team "suffering under sanctions" is an early
national championship favorite"Typical PAC12 mentality...the
ends justify the means whatever they maybe including ending a cherised rivalry.
Paul Johnson did not play collee football and is one of the top coaches in
College Football. He won at Georgia Southern, Navy, and Georgia Tech.Leach will be very successful at Washington State. All of the new hires in
the Pac 12 will make it tougher for the Utes.
