The poor cleaning woman, she never saw it coming. Mike Leach’s rumored obsession with pirates has taken on a life of its own, and most seem to be getting a kick out of an FBS coach showing his looser, fun-loving side. Except the Texas Tech cleaning woman.

After winning three of their first four to start the season, there was cautious optimism that Paul Wulff might have actually turned things around in Pullman.
