Did You Notice Leach's Wrap?

After browsing some pictures snapped by fans at the Iowa State game this weekend, I got to wondering about this particular one taken by RevcoMan from

What was the wrap all about? Did he slap on a bunch of Icy Hot to cure a sore arm?

It turns out it was worse. Coach Leach fell off his bicycle last Friday and broke a bone in his arm.

He's a tough guy, waiting until Monday to take care of it.


Texas Tech Coach Leach Breaks Arm Falling From Bike

LUBBOCK, Texas -- Texas Tech's Mike Leach talks often about how players need to play through pain as the season wears on.

Now he'll have to walk his talk.

Leach said Monday he broke a bone in his right arm when he hit the pavement after falling from his bicycle on Friday.

Leach said he got a flat tire and tried to fill it with enough air to make it to his destination, but "it proceeded to run out of air. I took a routine turn, then went into a slide, so then it broke the arm."

Leach, who wore a wrap around his elbow area to his weekly gathering with the media Monday, had cuts and scratches on each palm and abrasions to his right hip and shoulder.

"It's just a mess," he said. "Went from a one-and-a-half week deal to six. It's a nuisance."
