Mike Leach: Color Arrrghnalyst

College Football, Kissed With Apocalypse

Frumped by

Hmmm, former Texas Tech coach Mike Leach.  So much comes to mind: Offensive genius. Cruel, draconian task master of Adam James. Lover of all things pirate. And now, forevermore, CBS College Football color analyst.

Yes, Mike Leach made his in-game analyst debut during CBS’ Saturday evening coverage of the N.C. State-Central Florida game down in Orlando.  A resident of Key West – what true pirate enthusiast could feel at home on the mainland, after all? – Leach didn’t have too far to go to get his commentating career off the mark. How far he may have gone to relax his nerves is another question entirely, however.

Just one game in, Leach already has a bit of a greatest hits compilation (many thanks to NCStateFootball). Whether it was the Under Armor button up – with tie – or his riveting imagery regarding a bizarro world in which baby seals become the clubbers (somehow, Leach’s fantastic baby seal metaphor didn’t make it into this video – will try to track it down), I must say, Mike Leach –  in-game college football color analyst – may be the best conception of Mike Leach to date.

But wait, there’s more!: CBS is covering N.C. State’s game against the East Carolina Pirates on October 16th, and guess who’s slated for color commentary duties. Seriously, if that doesn’t restore your faith in something – anything – then you might as well go ahead and end it all now. Yeah, I’m giving 3:1 odds that Leach shows up for the game in Greenville in full pirate garb. Any takers?

    Interesting. ECU will be running Leach’s offense. His old DC is now ECU’s HC, his old OC is ECU’s OC, it seems like the rest of his old staff is at ECU. Should be very interesting.

    Leach was terrible. He is as bad at being a commentator as he is at caring about defense. The pain to my ears is just subsiding, and it’s Wednesday! Have never heard a coach who hmmmms and hawwwws so much, it was ridiculously annoying. I will not turn off the next broadcast he’s on, he’s so bad.

  3. Dan Says:

    Obviously, I was torn between swearing to turn off the TV next time I see or pledging no to stay tuned to his next broadcast. Bottom line: Leach sucks at announcing and CBS made a huge mistake.
