That’s right, you were sent 40 (ok, 36 but it looked like 40) letters of appreciation in one single day by the one and only Mike Leach! And he’s really into you, just look at that adorable face!

It’s the last day of January so it’s officially time to start thinking of V-Day. But let’s talk a little football first.

One of those ‘trendy’ new things that coaches all over college football are doing to get the maximum attention of their target prospect is blasting them with “pillow talk” content all at the same time. It seems to be working.

In this case, the recruit’s name, if you must know, is Reggie Long and he’s out of Whitehouse, TX. He’s a 2014 prospect and Leach & co. blasted Long with all those letters of recruitment in one day.

Long is a big Mike Leach fan (of course with the Texas Tech connection) and was wildly excited about all the attention, though he didn’t really get an invitation to the Prom that day, not one invite in 36 letters!? He did get a consolation prize though when he was asked to have a drink and some chicken at the Wazzu Junior Day event on Feb. 16, which is plenty close enough to Valentine’s day to make that an awkward dinner party, or perhaps not.

We’ll get more into Long’s story and stuff sometime in the future, but we digress! The question of the day is probably best asked for the Ladies:

Would you be in for a date with the Leachster if he sent you 40 love letters on Valentine’s Day? Or ever?

If “No” then what would it take?

He might be willing to throw in his big teddy bear… hmmm?
