In reference to Leach "We are used to breaking records" and other so called run and shoot "offensive geniuses" Mumme, Jones etc.

These guys are not offensive guru's there defenses give up TD drives in a minute, they never run the ball and they never win big games.

Hawaii has had some scares from some medicore competition. Leach's best record is 9-3 ever.
Here is his big 12 records since he has been at Texas Tech

3-4, with a probable loss to Oklahoma this week

They need to stop being called great offensive minds, they should just be called mediocre coaches.
