Yes, you. Provided you're in the greater Lubbock area on Saturday, Oct. 21, that is.
Washington State coach Mike Leach has never been shy about his disdain for his former employer, Texas Tech -- or, more specifically, the fact that they haven't paid him $2.5 million he believes he's entitled to from when he was fired in 2009. Tech, on the other hand, has a differing opinion in that they don't want to pay him $2.5 million.
So Leach is taking the fight to Twitter by asking all of those in his corner to gather outside of Texas Tech's Jones AT&T Stadium at 10 a.m. on game day to rally on his behalf for the money. Since the tweet was sent out, Leach has been heavily retweeting those who support his cause. There's also a website promoting his cause.
Don't expect Leach to be in attendance, however. Washington State has a game against Colorado on Saturday.
Leach was fired in 2009 with cause of alleged player mistreatment involving former wideout Adam James. An appeal in the wrongful termination lawsuit Leach filed against Tech was denied in 2012 by the Texas Supreme Court citing sovereign immunity for Tech because it is a state institution. Basically, the court ruled Leach couldn't sue Tech even if he wanted to -- which he very, very much does -- because he didn't have permission to.
Leach has told pretty much anyone who will listen about how unfair this process has been, and that he will get his day in court. Maybe he will. Can a rally outside Texas Tech's stadium get the ball rolling (or the money flowing)? You know what they say about missing all the shots you don't take.
