Tech Chaos

Let's get our priorities straight, shall we.

Tech's head coach Mike Leach went on this rant after yesterday's loss to Oklahoma State: "Defensively, the entire first half we got hit in the mouth and acted like someone took our lunch money and all we wanted to do is have poutey expressions on our face and until somebody dobbed our little tears off and made us [insert F bomb here] feel better," Leach said. "Then we go out there and try harder once our mommies told us we were OK . . . . It doesn't matter if it's a player or a coach or somebody in the background or some support staff, if they're not on board, you get rid of them."

Tech fans agreed.

Today, the defensive coordinator, Lyle Setencich, quit.

I learned this today: In 2005, Setencich's wife, Kathy, suffered a life-threatening hemorrhage – a "brain bleed" in medical terms – and the complications are similar to that of a stroke. Setencich has taken care of his wife the last few years while trying to balance the hectic schedule of a major college football coach. He couldn't immediately be reached for comment.
