    Missy state and / or Mike leach will never get to the cfp because you can’t take an ass to the Kentucky derby.

      Sooooooo, coach dingleberry is saying here, a team doesn’t win a game allll season, yet can win the biggest game of the year…he knows it’s 4:20 somewhere…

      A self serving comment by a multi million $ paid CFB coach. What a surprise. The only way he gets to the CFP is with a game day ticket in the stands.

    Good lord. Why don’t they let me in the finals of the mens 100m at the next Olympics? Maybe everyone else will blow both Achilles’ tendons out of the starting blocks and become incapacitated. I deserve a shot, right? Right?

    Mike isn’t even coaching one of the top 4 teams in the SEC West. He does, however, enjoy nothing so much as annoying the establishment coaching fraternity. This statement is simply a chance to do some off season conditioning before the heavy lifting of trying to upset one of his betters begins in earnest this fall.

  7. Look, if we’re going to take Leach’s analogy 100% literally, he’s talking about putting the top 20 CFB teams on the field all at the same time and seeing who can score the most points. And if I’m being honest, I kinda wanna see that.

      When I was in Jr. High, we played soccer with two teams of fifty kids each and six soccer balls. So kinda like that?

    Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!…

    I think it’s a perfect analogy for a different reason. Because no one gives a shit about any of those races leading up to yesterday.

    An expanded playoff in the long run probably diverts more money to the top of the heap and means less for conference also-rans like Miss St.

    Brilliant, Mike

    Hey Leach, you got to get to the sandbox before you can play in it

    Well, Hells Bells. By that logic they should let more horses in the race too.

    Wrong analogy. If that horse hadn’t won any races, it wouldn’t have advanced to the next rounds & the finals. Thanks for playing Leach.

    Of course Mike Leach would want a system where the best horse doesn’t win.
