BECAUSE GERONIMO WOULD RUN FOUR VERT

HE WOULD AND YOU KNOW IT

William Mancebo

While awaiting tonight's exciting EXCITING GET EXCITED FOR PUNTING AND ANGRY DEFENSE Poinsettia Bowl, let us point out that of course Mike Leach is going to be part of a book about Geronimo. This is an excerpt from Geronimo's super awesome wikipedia entry:

It was during this incident that the name Geronimo came about. This appellation stemmed from a battle in which, ignoring a deadly hail of bullets, he repeatedly attacked Mexican soldiers with a knife.

If Leach didn't admire Geronimo enough before the 2012 season, he has to double his admiration after reading that the chief was one of the few people to literally carry a knife into a gun fight and live. Leach tried something simliar with the Spike Factor-winning Wazzu offense, and came out alive, but with greatly different results.*

*More of a battle-spork, really.
