Leach was the best Tech could've ever hoped for.

They gave it up to make one "daddy coach" happy, and they're gonna pay for it for a long, long time.

Man... those are impressive numbers under Leach. I didn't realize they were that good..

My dad went to Tech, so we watch a lot of their football, basketball, and baseball games. I find myself rooting for them except when they play Texas. Football has been really rough this decade. Pat was exciting to watch because we knew him growing up in Whitehouse, but other than that they have flat out STUNK.
