Exiled in a land-lubbin' burg like Lubbock, bawdy Cap'n Mike Leach has always fancied the pirate's life, but not even the one-eyed, peg-legged, swinger of swords could set his Raiders asail in the depths that covered Jones Field roughly 48 hours ahead of Saturday's 6 p.m. kickoff between Texas Tech and equally high-flying SMU:
I've heard of a depth chart, but this is ridiculous.
Seriously, folks, a rep in Tech's football office told me the field has been pumped and the game's on as scheduled. The Cap'n is disappointed, no doubt. Cuz if ye scurvy dogs didn't think there'd be cannons, ya'd had another think comin', and a supper of iron and fire on its tail. Yarr.
