Considering he never coached at schools with the built in recruiting advantages,59% is pretty good.

There should be a benchmark for wins if you're under the 60%. I'll suggest 165. If you have 165 wins as a head coach, you've been around long enough to be a hall of famer.

To be under 60% with 165 wins, you'd have to be a head coach for approximately 23 years. That's HOF worthy.

He coached at TT, WSU and MSU. If he doesn't get in based on a percentage of winning, that's a joke. He helped change the sport. Not only CFB but NFL also.

If State wins their bowl, give Leach the credit. He is still their HC

How is it ‘crazy’ Larry? Do you understand what that word means, or are your just blurting it out without any thought?

HOF can suck my big one. Mike Leach made up the extra .04 needed with his dignity, class, wit, and brilliant mind. He did not ever coach a team in my fan circle but I looked forward to hearing about him and was loving the fact he was now in the SEC!! This guy isgoing to be missed by us earthlings.

check the winning percentages of the programs he coached before and after he was there, then compare it to his winning percentage while at those programs

To be even remotely close to that benchmark with his only stops being Lubbock, Pullman and Starkville should be more than enough for a waiver

Lets figure up a algorithm that calculates the quality of the coach in part based on the quality of recruits and talent he had access too and contribution to the offense or defense system.

He deserves to be in just based on what he contributed to the game of football offensively. They can recognize him for that regardless of his winning percentage.
