Texas Tech's competing quarterbacks--fighting for the starting spot just a few weeks shy of their opener--got real buccaneer with it after practice on Monday. Chris Todd and Ryan Rowland, both competing for the starting spot with Graham Harrell, got into it after practice to the tune of a broken nose for Rowland. (HT: The Wiz.) While Leach promptly had Todd keelhauled dismissed the fight as nothing, he did have this to say:
"If you get 130 priests together, there's going to be some battles."
While EDSBS was unaware of Mike Leach's recruiting priests, it wouldn't surprise us given Mike Leach's reputation for being unorthodox (and occasionally just plain bizarre.) It would also explain Texas Tech's very forgiving defense.
A broken nose? How naughty! Yarr.
