Roundup: Leach thinks the end is near for humanity

Mike Leach predicted the extinction of mankind due to all this pesky technology running our lives and whatnot. Doesn’t sound like he’ll be opening up an OkCupid profile anytime soon. Also, The NFL said it was a mistake to penalize Kansas City Chiefs safety Husain Abdullah for kneeling down to pray after scoring a touchdown Monday night against New England. A devout Muslim, the former Washington State Cougar had a pick six of Tom Brady and was given a 15-yard penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct for going to the ground for a celebration. Here’s what Abdullah told Kansas City sports talk show host Danny Parkins after the game:
