    Most important thing his father said was that Leach did not reach out to his son.

    Leach is too busy in Key West sheltering during the outbreak. You would think he would at least be In Mississippi

    Exactly, I shouldn't have commented as I didn't read. No worries.

    But he’s a pirate, so he’s in the perfect place.

    I don’t think the concerns expressed here are as unfounded as simple differences in our senses of humor. Whether you agree or not, to some of us there is concern over any player POTENTIALLY using Leach’s clearly non-racist tweet as leverage to claim racism at MSU. I’ve retracted my initial assumption that he did this, but this is the point of concern, not simple off-color humor and who is or isn’t offended by it

    I agree that the real concern here should be that he might be using the claim of racism as a tool to get what he wants. And at best, that would be a very unethical thing for him to do.

    But many people here are calling him a snowflake and PC and saying he shouldn't be offended by it. So that does in fact, seem to be their concern. So my post is aimed toward them and asking why do they think they are the sole arbitrators of what should be considered offensive to everyone else?

    I won't name names, but some of the same people who are calling this kid a snowflake are the same ones who were deeply offended by the SuperBowl halftime show. The hypocrisy is crazy.

    If this kid actually was offended by the tweet (and I sort of think he was) it is only because he was either overtly taught things like that are offensive or he just learned it through his own life experiences. But it doesn't mean he is a bad person, a bad student or a bad teammate. He just has a different view than you or I do. I think he's wrong, but he's not bad.

    If he wasn't offended by it and he's just using it as a means to an end, then F' him.

    Funny - I honestly don’t even remember the halftime show at the super bowl. I always watch the game, and I don’t think I ever watch the stupid halftime show.

    You can never have enough linemen, on either side of the ball.

    I agree with the other poster that this is more of a business move than a personal one. One thing I'll point out here though, is that with Leach's style of offense, he better make sure he's stocked up on defense, because his O can score quick and put the D right back on the field.

    Also, on the other hand, against great defenses, of which he will face many every year in the SEC, his teams have gone 3 and out many times, putting his weak defenses in a terrible position. Either way he needs as many defensive playermakers as possible.

    Right. I can't recall ONE solid to elite collegiate defensive player that has made it in the NFL under a Mike Leach coached team

    You think Tim would use your off color joke as a reason to transfer? Throw his new coach under the bus? That's comical.

    I thought FSU had just abandoned actually having players on the field playing in games and had instead gone to computer simulations.

    Did he see fsu as a better opportunity or do we suspect staff passed?

    Didn’t someone post that his d line coach is now at FSU? If so that’s probably a big factor.
