    Leach is one of my favorite coaches if for no other reason than his attitude about the game.

          I'm old enough to remember when Oklahoma made the transition from the triple option offense to more of a traditionally ran offense.

          I want to say Cale Gundy was our QB and him being able to pass for over 2,000 yards in a season felt like a huge accomplishment.

          Along those same lines, it still amazes me that former OU TE Keith Jackson somehow gained All-American honors and was a high draft pick coming out of that wishbone offense.

            Head coaching job rankings by Athlon.

            Athlon Sports ranks all 130 head football coaching jobs in FBS, from 1 to 130. They consider facilities, support, location, etc. They have Tech at No. 36, which I think is fair.

            Comment: "Tech is an interesting program. It is in a remote location, but Lubbock isn't exactly a small town (population: 250,000). It's a big state school, but it's at best the third-best program in the state. Recruiting can be a challenge as well since Dallas is a 5-hour drive. Bottom line: There's a lot to like -- and a lot that makes this a tough job."

            Other rankings of note:

            4. Texas
            8. Oklahoma
            12. Aggy
            22. Oklahoma State
            33. West Virginia
            36. Texas Tech
            37. TCU
            42. Baylor
            48. Houston
            62. Washington State
            63. Iowa State
            64. Kansas State
            68. Kansas

              The first transition out of the wishbone was when Troy Aikman was QB, He was injured in the first year of his career there and Switzer had to fall back to the option because the remaining QBs on the squad were all option players. Jamail Holloway way tagged to be the starter and Aikman was assisted by Switzer to go to UCLA.

                Keith Jackson gained so much attention because of the length of his catches. His overall average was more than 20 yards.

                  That's actually higher than I would have thought we would have been ranked.

                    Yeah I remember that Aikman experiment. But as you mentioned it was a short-lived transition due to Aikman's broken leg. IIRC, he only played about 4 or 5 games. So I didn't consider that a true transition because they went right back to the wishbone and never fully committed to sticking with a more traditional offense until Switzer was run out of town a few years later.

                      Actually Switzer still lives in Norman.

                          I think it is about right. Tech is about a top 40 place. In some categories they are top 30, in others top 45, so it makes sense to me.
