No matter which side is taken regarding the firing of Coach Leach it is pretty sad that the controversy and turmoil trumped the awsome win our HOME team gave us at the Alamo Bowl. Shouldn't the team that worked hard, blocked out the media and arguements that have persisted rather than focusing on theg game have been front page news? In past times a Bowl Win would have been front page news with follow up in the sports section. The controversial matters will go on for several months but the immedite triumph of the game should have been the first and formost support from Lubbock!

I, also, am very happy that TTU won the game under adverse circumstances. However, Mich St also had adverse situation. Proud to see the Raiders step up to the line. Where does that leave us in the coach situation? TTU probably had cause to fire Leach in the past, but not over this bogus deal. They will pay through the nose for this fiasco. I cannot imagine any self-respecting coach would agree to come to TT and have to deal with Myers/Hance/Regents (PAST, as well as present). And on that note, how in the world does a past regent have so much pull? Is the Tech Board that weak?
