Leach files for restraining order
LUBBOCK, Texas - The lawyer for Mike Leach says the suspended Texas Tech coach did nothing wrong in how he treated a player with a "mild" concussion, and Leach is seeking a court's help to allow him to coach in Saturday's Alamo Bowl. The motion for a temporary restraining order was filed Tuesday in Lubbock. An in-chambers hearing was set for this morning in the 99th District Court. University officials suspended Leach on Monday while the school investigates a complaint from receiver Adam James and his family. James is the son of former NFL player Craig James, now a television college football analyst for ESPN.UCLA 30, TEMPLE 21 WASHINGTON - Temple's first bowl game in 30 years was ruined by the UCLA Bruins. Akeem Ayers returned an interception 2 yards for a go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter and UCLA shut down Temple in the second half in the EagleBank Bowl at RFK Stadium. The Bruins (7-6) rallied from a 21-7 first-half deficit to finish with a winning record for the first time since 2006. That mini-slump by UCLA pales in comparison to the decades of futility endured by the Owls (9-4), whose only previous bowl appearances in school history were the inaugural Sugar Bowl in 1935 and the Garden State Bowl in 1979.
