Texas Tech coach Mike Leach probably could use some advice from Eric Taylor right about now.
The crack Friday Night Lights staff would be hard-pressed to dream up such a predicament.
The facts are not all out about the case between Leach and a Texas Tech inside receiver named Adam James. The story has legs since James' daddy, Craig James, works for ESPN and if ESPN wants something to be a story, it will stay in the news (how was it that James Sr. was initially assigned to commentate a bowl game involving his son's team before all this blew up?).
The stunning part, from a Canadian point of view, is how much say some NCAA coaches have in the treatment of injured players (right or wrong). Talk about a liability nightmare. You would think that would be trusted to health professionals, the doctors and athletic therapists. Coaches should not stick their finger in the potential malpractice pie.
