Texas Tech's Mike Leach Knows How To Fling The F-Word Around

It's no secret football coaches curse, but now, thanks to the Texas Open Records Act, you get video proof of the artistry involved.

The website orangebloods.com filed an Open Records Act request for a video shot by a Texas Tech crew after the Red Raiders barely beat Baylor.

Then-coach Mike Leach is not happy. He never shouts, but he is eloquent in his deployment of the f-word, which is used approximately 5,934 times in the six-minute, 40-second video.

Leach retraces Tech's season, including an analysis that they lost to UH because they had gotten cocky by almost beating Texas.

At the end, he promises to switch roommate assignments around, because some people are only "pulling mediocrity" out of one another.
