Kudos for Trooper and Mike Leach

Well I did not get a call from Mike Leach thanking me for my advice on how to handle the contract dispute, but he sure acted like he followed my advice. My advice followed an old real estate adage; “If you have a willing seller and a willing buyer the the worst agent cannot kill the deal.” And I am not saying the Mikes agents are not good. I am sure they did a lot of blocking in the trenches. It was just time for Mike to take matters into his own hands.That having been said, I am dedicating the next two years to Burl Huffman. I will never forget the first gather up after freshman practice in the fall of 65 and Burl talking about bring a National Championship to Texas Tech. I don't know about the rest of the team, but just out of high school I knew nothing above state champs. Even back then we beat Texas two of my three would have been varsity years, not to mention 67,”The Year of the Horns” , when we beat them the second game of the year. Kids at that time I did not see it, but by golly he was on target. We now beat A&M, we occasionally beat Oklahoma and UT. Why not be national champs! Especially in 2010.
