This guy must really hate the U/W!! Gives him something to do while cheering for a coach who "Wins a TON of games". Pussycats have won 54.95% of games since leach took over, which is great if your a Coug.
Interesting way of dealing with seven straight losses....Doing the work
We all know the issues that happened back then, but James was never convicted of a crime or charged with anything, including any NCAA infractions that I recall.Should we list the James era issues too. But some how James made them pay more than any court would.
Oh yes he did!
AgreedStonefish: SPOT ON! James resigned over the ridiculous pac 12 punishment and lack of support. Gerberding had it in for James ever since Bush sr. came to town and asked Coach James out to dinner. He hired that USC SKANK who cared more about women's JV Badminton than the cash cow. I thought she was going to give neweisel a bj at his press conference!
