Mike Leach Continues to Say Things....Out Loud

Sometimes when smart people talk, the general public just doesn't understand. Like, for instance, if one were to try to explain to me Quantum Chromodynamics. Well, when Mike Leach tried to analogize referee performance to an IHOP special, he really lost me:

"It's a little like breakfast - you eat ham and eggs," Leach said. "As coaches and players, we're like the ham. You see - the chicken's involved but the pig's committed. We're like the pig, they're like the chicken. They're involved, but everything we have rides on this."

So from what I can tell: Texas Tech=A Pig, Referees= A chicken. It is clear that Coach Leach was either reading Animal Farm or Green Eggs and Ham just prior to this interview.

We all know Mike Leach went to law school, so he isn't "Coach Fran" dumb. But why do I just have the suspicion that, if he were still to be practicing, he would look a little like this....

Judge: Mr. Hutz, are you aware you're not wearing any pants?
Lionel Hutz
: Uh, your Honor, can I call for one of those bad trial thingys?

: You mean a mistrial?
Lionel Hutz: Yeah ... that's why you're the judge, and I am the law ... talkin' ... guy.

Well as a student at Mike Leach's alma mater, I have to say, there are some "Coach Fran" dumb students here. Contrary to popular belief (HA, yeah right), not everyone in law school is very bright. Just ask the guy across from me who doesn't know not to use an overturned case for his open memo...

What's so hard to understand about his comment? I guess it takes a smart Tech student to understand Mike Leach...sorry Longhorns. The message is simple. I'll translate.

If you eat ham and eggs for breakfast, two animals are involved...pig and chicken. In order to become that ham, a pig must sacrifice all it has (i.e. life) to join your breakfast plate. The chicken puts a little of itself into the breakfast by laying an egg, but in the end (or at least until time for a barbeque dinner), the chicken gets to go on with its life relatively unaffected. Coaches and teams sacrifice all they have in order to find success. Officials are involved, but if they blow the game, they still get to go on being officials. Clear now?
