New Lubbock, Texas phone book features Mike Leach on cover. Ha

Jan 26, 2010, 10:45 AM EDT

The new phone book’s here! The new phone book’s here! Let’s see who they put on the cover this ye … yipes. Awk-ward. The new Lubbock, Texas, phone book arrived on porches this morning, and imagine everyone’s surprise when a photo of former Texas Tech football coach Mike Leach looked up from the cover. Even that smallest Cub Scout there somehow sensed this photo shoot would soon be chock full of irony.


From the Dallas Morning News:

Mike Leach is getting in one last jab to each and every resident of Lubbock with a cover cameo on the latest edition of the AT&T Yellow Pages that will be hitting the doorsteps of Lubbock residents today. Don’t be surprised to see plenty of attorney listings in this edition, but a lacking of shed retailers.

And from SportsbyBrooks:

Only thing worse for Texas Tech administration would be to see Leach’s attorney’s kisser on the back cover. Oh God no …

Per the link directly above, I’m wondering why Smith & Liggett Attorneys at Law think it might be OK for you to hire a gorilla to handle your personal injury lawsuit. I suppose that when it comes to the law, they are the most competent of all the great apes. But that’s not saying much.
“Your honor, Mr. Coco would like to request a 15-minute recess to pet the kitten.”

    It is a wonder to me that the craze for investigative reporting has not included searching for the full truth of this dismissal. From the reported ties of the Governor to Craig James, Kent Hance, the regents, you get the idea. This is so much deeper than the surface reports. If Mike Leach ought to be fired, Craig james should be fired from espn, Adam should transfer from TT, the regents and administration should be fired as well as the athletic director.Washington is learning you just can’t cram stupidity down the people’s throats, maybe TT should learn the same for their behavior to the tax payers and fans. Why are they not held accountable?

    I live in Lubbock and am a Tech grad. I can’t wait to get my phone book. I think it’s awesome! The Texas Tech administration gets to see that and be reminded every day what a bunch of boneheads they are.

    Leach needs to quit monkeying around. Of course, James was a chimp for ratting him out like that. These people have gone bananas!!!
