Mike Leach going to Mississippi State

Haven’t seen an article yet, but I saw a headline flash by on a television. I don’t think I’m sad to see him go.

Sure seems like a win for us. Guess we’ll have to see who they hire.

Pete Thamel has it, Brett McMurphy has it, Bruce Feldman has it. That’s definite. The pirate is sailing east.

Good, the SEC can have his “wit.” He’s an A-hole and I won’t miss him.

Never quite understood how they could out recruit us. Nothing wrong with Pullman but, it seems like the reasons some students might reject SLC aren’t necessarily going to be found there either.

Don’t know much about Starkville, but Pullman is in the middle of nowhere.

Lubbock to Pullman to Starkville - I don’t think locale is a big factor for Leach.

The consummate big (only?) fish in a small pond kind of guy.

^^ excellent ^^

Right. I think he likes to be places like that, where he can work under the radar, not be in a big city, and try to attract players who want to work in his system (most of whom never go on to success in the NFL because they are system players). His teams are fun to watch and they are all about him. that last part is the most important, it seems.

Because Utah is weird.

The comment may have referred to WSU landing QBs that we can’t land in Utah (and possibly receivers). While he was there, we probably failed for both positions every year (just guessing) but of course the obvious answer is: QBs/Receivers - you want to past 65 times per game, or 20?

I guess I mean that they seem to have aquired some in-state stars and also seem to have a competitive mojo with us.
I honestly can’t cite stats.
Just a vibe.

All about him. That’s what I think is important to Leach. He wants a locale where his antics are going to gain attention. He really seems to love getting all the press for being weird, and that wouldn’t work in a big market.
