At the least, players and parents are feeling more empowered for whatever reason.
Maybe it's the Mark Mangino situation. Maybe it's the Jim Leavitt situation. Maybe coaches have gone too far. All of it certainly has led me to ask the question, "What is the line and when do coaches cross it?"
Texas Tech seems to have some pretty damning evidence against Mike Leach. The fact that all he had to do was write a letter of apology to get out of this mess shows a bit of stubborness. Leach has done himself no favors with the administration after the battle over his contract extension earlier this year. It will be interesting to see if the schools pays a $800,000 bonus to Leach that is due on Thursday.
For the second time in a year, this looks like the end for Leach at Texas Tech. First, he battled the administration on the extension. Now he is allegedly bullying players. This is not the climate.
