    UCLA hopes the Rick keeps sucking it.

    Leach needs to stop his lawsuit and got to the pac-12.

    If you want to go REALLY far back, you could also include UNC's Butch Davis and tOSU's Jim Tressel as they were technically forced out this season, even though the season hadn't technically started.

    Hasn't Leach been rumored for the Arizona and New Mexico jobs?

    He's been rumored for every job, whether it's open or not. Fans covet him. Hell, I want him back in coaching and he ruined a few of our seasons when he was at Tech! :mad:

    The skeptic in me wonders if the scandal at PU isn't the reason Joe Pa never retired. Cover up conspiracy you know....
