    Now the MSU male fans can wear an eye-patch when they shake their cow bells while the women wear coconut bras. I like the fact that the state of Mississippi and the SECW have Leach and Kiffen to deal with.

    Might be a good place for Franks under Leach

    Is the SEC going more offence minded?

    How bad of a job is WSU that MSU poached their coach?

    I think it is already trending that way with LSU, UF, AL...

    In honor of college football philosopher king Mike Leach's return to the SEC, I thought it might be nice to share some of our favorite Mike Leachisms. A few of my favorites:

    He hates candy corn!
    "I think candy corn’s awful. You know, it’s like fruitcake. There’s a reason they only serve fruitcake once a year, because it’s awful. There’s a reason they only serve mint julep’s once a year, because they’re awful. Now, that does beg the question, ‘why they serve it at all?’ But anyway, that’s my opinion. You eat it by the handfuls, because that’s all that’s left, and you get sick."

    He agrees with CDM on balanced offenses!
    "There’s nothing balanced about the 50 percent run, 50 percent pass because that’s 50 percent stupid."

    And perhaps my favorite Mike Leach moment ever...

    That’s all of college football, now...

    I still think the SEC is the most pro-defensive conference of the power 5 conferences...

    Man, I'm stoked. The whole state is stoked I think. Kiffin and Leach may end up total busts, but at least things are going to be fun. Plus Lane and Mike are friendly with one another, and the Egg Bowl seriously needed to dial things back a notch. It went from delightfully over the top to just plain toxic back in the Mullen/Freeze years.

    Will be interesting to see how he deals with the boosters, wider fanbase, etc. Tweeting out bigfoot conspiracies an hour before a game where Miss St loses would likely turn the fanbase against him quickly. If they give him 4-5 yeas then I think he could win 8 or so games a year which at Miss St is enough to keep him employed for awhile.

    Why not? He's always coached in "out of the way" places and for a significant number of years. And he wins. This is going to be an absolutely dynamite addition and both Mississippis will be must watch television all year. This is going to make the West salty! I love Mike Leach. Google his interviews. They are hilarious! Kiffy, I don't like. But I will certainly be watching a whole lot more Ole Miss games because of him.

    This is gonna be great!
