Some Texas Tech players believed the university's decision to dismiss Leach was appropriate.
"I have no complaints about this decision. [Leach] put Adam [James] in a shed like an animal. Like an animal in a cage. That was bull," defensive lineman Chris Perry said. "You call other players. I think it was a good decision. We have our pep back now. We practice hard this week. We had less stress this week. You know why? Because he's gone."
Wide receiver Tramain Swindall said he supported the decision to fire Leach.
"I do agree and I'm supporting Adam and what he's doing because it's the right thing to do," Swindall told the AP in a telephone interview.
Swindall said he believes Leach was at times out of line in how he treated players.
"And so do most of the players," he said. "It wasn't just about Adam. It was always a negative vibe."
Said cornerback Taylor Charbonnet: "The players make this team, not one coach. As Adam's friend, I didn't like it at all what [Leach] did. He was my brother and I didn't agree with it. I don't know why [Leach] did that. But I know we are fully behind [interim] coach Ruffin [McNeill]. We love him and support him."
I gotta tell you, if I was Craig James (first of all that would be cool, I wonder if he ever hangs with Eric Dickerson) and it was my son, I would have kicked Mike Leach's ass (although Leach would have filed a Motion for a temporary restraining order-see, Leach is a fan of "restraining.").
We previously posted Leach's comments about "fat girlfriends" here's Leach's views on dating. I hope he is trying to be funny in this video, but I don't think so..
Apparently on a second date, Leach suggests that you lock your date in a shed!!

Natural Causes? Heavy Drug use? Accidental overdose?
In any case, here is a tribute to Brittany Murphy from one of her early works, Drop Dead Gorgeous, for my money, after Fargo, the second best documentary about the residents of Minnesota.
Best starting rotation in MLB?

picked as new Notre Dame football coach!!
"Say Anything" as one of my Top Twenty Favorite Films.
Yeah, it has been 20 years since the world first met Lloyd Dobler, but I just saw the classic again.
One of my favorite scenes:
From the Graduation Party, where Lloyd is "keymaster"
Mike Cameron: I don't know you very well, you know, but I wanted to ask you - how'd you get Diane Court to go out with you?
Lloyd Dobler: I called her up.
Mike Cameron: But how come it worked? I mean, like, what are you?
Lloyd Dobler: I'm Lloyd Dobler.
Mike Cameron: This is great. This gives me hope. Thanks.

It appears that Henry Blanco might be returning to Chicago, but this time to the South Side. I was not a big Blanco fan, but I did think that the Cubbies made a hugh mistake in letting him go and relying entirely on fatboy Soto at catcher. Blanco would be a great back-up and compliment to AJ, although I could also see the two of them getting into several clubhouse fights.
This make more sense that the Gonzalez rumors, as much as I would love Gonzalez on the South Side.
Ah, the Hot Stove League and baseball rumors. You gotta love it!

The game show - which tested one's knowledge of TV (HM and I would have killed on the show) was basically the start for Colin Quin, Adam Sandler and Kari Wuhrer; plus Denis Leary appeared on several episodes.

Now, freshman PF Mason Plumlee is out indefinitely with a broken wrist suffered in practice!
...gets life in prison for muder.
Word of advice. Even if you think you are innocent, you shouldn't quote Bobby Knight at your sentencing hearing (well, maybe if you are in Bloomington, Indiana).
Even Lawrence Phillips is not facing life in prison.
