Speaking of Sour Grapes

http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/news/story?id=4105406

Texas Tech coach Mike Leach, who saw his quarterback go undrafted and his star wide receiver slip down in the first round of the NFL draft, had plenty to say about both situations after the proceedings ended.

Texas Tech coach Mike Leach is rarely without a strong opinion.
Leach's record-setting quarterback, Graham Harrell, wasn't among the 256 players picked in the seven rounds of the NFL draft. Meanwhile, Texas A&M's Stephen McGee, who didn't start much of his senior season, went in the fourth round (the 101st pick) to the Dallas Cowboys.

"I'm happy for Stephen McGee," Leach told The Dallas Morning News. "The Dallas Cowboys like him more than his coaches at A&M did."

McGee had a strong showing in front of NFL scouts at the combine. Harrell struggled at the Senior Bowl.

Leach, however, said the NFL has a long track record of picking its quarterbacks poorly. "The truth of the matter is that the NFL drafts quarterbacks notoriously bad," said Leach, according to the Morning News. "That's indisputable. ..."

ESPN.com's Tim Griffin writes about all things Big 12 in his conference blog.

Harrell won't necessarily be out of work for long. His agent, Chad Speck, said he will participate in the Browns' rookie minicamp.

Meanwhile, Leach said that Cleveland Browns coach Eric Mangini is to blame for former Texas Tech wide receiver Michael Crabtree falling to the 10th pick in the first round. Reports out of Cleveland said that the Browns didn't like Crabtree's attitude when he visited the team prior to the draft.

"Michael Crabtree has been more successful as a receiver than that guy as a coach at this point," Leach said of Mangini, according to the Sacramento Bee. "Part of the reason is [Crabtree's] too shy to be like that."

Leach said Crabtree isn't a "diva."

"My definition of a diva is someone who's loud and self-absorbed," Leach told the Bee. "Michael Crabtree is the furthest thing from loud that I've seen. ... Let's see how all those non-divas do up in Cleveland this year."

The funniest part is Graham Harrell has worked out for the Browns and may or may not have a contract in place with them.

Guess the coach's words didn't ring too true to his star QB.

Quit running an offense that sets your kids up for failure at the next level.

Otherwise, look in the ****ing mirror, because you're the problem, not NFL decision makers.

I couldn't believe the dig at his own player...

If I was Stephen McGee...and I ever play and start on MNF...I'm making sure my hometown or high school gets the recognition, not Tech.

Pretty sure McGee did NOT play at Tech. FYI.

You think he should be more worried about running a minor league program for the NFL than running whatever system he thinks he can win the most games with?

McGee played for A&M. Leach coaches Texas Tech.

I thought his comments were pretty funny, and somewhat accurate.

Not at all.

But he shouldn't be surprised when NFL people look at his athletes like lepers because of the system HE chooses to run.

He's claiming the NFL is the problem. It's not. It's his system.
