It’s a dumb move by a smart coach in the wrong era

A college football coach can’t do what Mike Leach did to Adam James and get away with it.
Not if the player and his family don’t allow it.
Not in 2009.

Did Leach miss the announcement about the new millennium?
Leach picked on the wrong kid in the wrong decade.
Times have changed. Leach is lucky James didn’t record his stay in the dark room/shed/garage and put out a Blair Witch Project-type video on YouTube. It would be a huge hit.
The debate over the relative comforts of the room/shed/garage and just how long and how many times James was forced to stand in it are almost meaningless.
