No Matter How Harsh The Charge, Mike Leach Will Be Just Fine.....

Talk about a bizarre story to end the decade.

Yesterday Texas Tech University fired its head football coach Mike Leach after allegations of mistreatment of player Adam James (who is the son of ESPN college football analyst Craig James). Leach allegedly ordered James to stand in a dark shed away from practice because Leach believed James was faking a concussion. Leach had James under the watch of others and told the people watching James to not let him sit down.

Now in the grand scheme of things this treatment of James doesn't sound too harsh to me. If James indeed had a concussion, I am sure that there were proper procedures taken to make sure if he did or not. With the recent discussions by both the NFL and NCAA on how to handle players who suffer concussions, I am sure the right steps were taken.

Now if they were not....that's a big problem and that is a reason for termination.
