Texas Tech's Mike Leach Rips Players and 'Fat Little Girlfriends'

| by DeepDiveAdmin

The Texas Tech Red Raiders have been a scoring machine over the last few seasons in college football -- but this year hasn't gone as planned. Despite a winning record at 5-3, Texas Tech finds itself 2-2 in the Big 12 and staring at a mid-level bowl game.

The team's play after a 52-30 blowout loss to Texas A&M didn't please head coach Mike Leach, who ripped his players and their "fat little girlfriends." Was it all said in jest? Well, if you watch the press conference footage, it's hard to argue that Leach is joking. He uses the term repeatedly and without hesitation.
