We thought this was a joke, but they're not joking anymore.

It must be a rough time to be in charge at Texas Tech. First, you have the controversy surrounding the ouster of Chancellor Robert Duncan, and now ex-Coach Mike Leach is back in the picture.

Coach Leach and his legal team believe he was truly wronged and not paid according to the terms of his contract (to the tune of about $2 million). 1340 The Fan reported that Leach's representatives said "there would be a constant reminder" of the Leach situation around the university this fall. Well, lo and behold, it was not a hollow threat, but a real thing.

As promised, the billboard started playing today with the tagline paycoachleach.com.  The site is hardcore in its findings and accusations.

This picture was snapped this morning on the corner of 19th and University right next to the IHOP.
