Ah, the wonders of the Internet.
Moments after I read colleague Dwain Price’s blog post on Texas Tech coach Mike Leach blowing up at the Big 12 referees, I showed the post to Big 12 commissioner Dan Beebe. He’s attending the Kansas-Oklahoma State game in Stillwater.
Beebe was interested in reading Leach’s comments. Rest assured that those quotes will be reviewed and dissected. By Monday, expect the conference to reprimand Leach for his comments.
I saw two of the plays that had Leach steamed. The TD catch that was overruled on the replay review was an incompletion; the replay showed the ball hit the ground. The holding call that wiped out a TD pass on the same possession also appeared to be a no-brainer call.
