The coach some call The Pirate doesn't give press conferences.
Mike Leach serves up seminars.
So it's no surprise when he gets a question about the silliness of determining an FBS champion, he's locked, loaded, and ready to expound. At length:
Dude oughta get Wazzu's admin to label this wealth of stuff How the World Works 101, offer a midterm, final and college credits.
Who knows the lives it'd enrich?
Leach will surely get strong support from here.
The Daily Player is one of many that advocate expanded playoffs, which would entail:
- Putting an end to those stupid junkets the CFP takes to that posh resort near Dallas to do whatever the hell they do to blackball one of the Power Five champions;
- Putting that money spent to better use like, say, increasing stipends to student-athletes; and
- Bagging rankings altogether as eligibility criteria and
- Let teams' conference records speak for themselves.
Unless Leach becomes the next Bill Snyder, he should swing his sword all the way to the NCAA offices, create a How Stuff Works department, become the head of it, and put this agenda into action.
