An attempt at an injunction is today's most exciting function and other links

By Michael Rothstein

Another day, another bit of craziness in the saga that is Mike Leach and Texas Tech. Yesterday, Leach's lawyers said they will file an injunction so he can coach his team in this week's Alamo Bowl.

The case will be heard in Lubbock, Texas, today at 11 a.m.

If you've forgotten why Leach has to do this, he was suspended after broadcaster Craig James - the father of wide receiver Adam James - alleged Leach mistreated his son.
