Meanwhile, in Starkville

The Pirate has a, shall we say, unique way of motivating the troops.

Can’t wait to see what he has in store for Georgia.

    Miss State is the proverbial box of chocolates. Fuck all knows what we’re gonna get.

    • I’d be lying if I wasn’t a little concerned with how much success they had in 2020.

        They could take us down to the wire. We could blow them out. It could be close at half and then we break it wide open in the 3rd quarter.

        Mike Leach teams are, as a rule, entirely unpredictable.

          That’s what has me worried, especially after last week’s game.

            This was one of the three games that had me worried way back to start the season.

            Interestingly, all three came in a row: Tennessee, Miss State, and Kentucky.

            As the year went on, I felt better than Tennessee because of how they played against Pitt then FU then Bama. I have zero fear of Kentucky.

            This game, at Starkville, with those crazy cowbell fans, it doesn’t worry me, worry me, like, I feel confident we’ll win. I just don’t know how much they’re gonna make us work for it. Could be a lot. Could be a little. Who knows?

              We haven’t exactly lit it up in sec west stadiums in the smart era.

              This is the one I had circled preseason.

              Coming off two big wins and having to get locked back in going against something unique and different in a strange environ.

              If Carter shows up though…. Well they cant throw it from their asses.

                2018 LSU: Blowout loss
                2019 Auburn: Coleytastic win
                2020 Bama: Blowout-ish loss
                2021 Auburn: Blowout win

                Sample size is six games and most of them seem a million years ago, FWIW

          Hopefully, Kirby has had his off season chat with Chris Petersen and Jimmy Lake. They famously had no fear of the Pirate when they were at UDub and always shut him down. Leach never managed more than 17 versus their Huskies.

            As a coach who is obsessed with detail, I can’t imagine Kirby has not talked to them and/or at the very least gotten the game tape and reviewed it a couple of hundred times.


      • 2020 was a horseshit anomaly. Florida won the east, Bama won the title, Ohio State got to the Playoff after playing 6 games.

  4. If that’s your problem to focus on during a game, you’ve got much bigger problems in practice. That’s on Leach, not the players. He needs to be in the booth as an OC, not running a program as HC. No way do we lose to that clown show.


    • jcdawg83

      He’s running “The Mike Leach Show” not the Mississippi State football program. If Auburn wins that game he looks like a complete idiot for taking time to move chairs when he should have been paying attention to the game.

      • PERFECT analogy. He’s fallen in love with his own legend.

          He is comfortable saying this to the media because he says this kind of thing to the players all the time. Which means that they don’t pay any attention to it.
          I still think he got a raw deal in Texas Tech because they thought that they could be Texas.

        The Mississippi State Bulldogs proudly present the all-new Mike Leach show, Pirate’s Booty…with the Cowbell Orchestra and the Mike Leach Co-ed Dancers.

    Replace “dick” with “football guy” in the last sentence and it’d be spot on.

    Earlier in the year people were circling this game as a “trap” game for us but I have a hard time believing our staff and players lose to… that.

    How do you get away with the fat little girlfriend comments in 2022? If I was the father of a Miss St player’s girlfriend, the Pirate would have his ass thoroughly kicked. He’d need a chair for the next game — a wheelchair.

    Yep. Clown act. But we need to stop celebrating our “boogie man “ status and get ready to shut down Mississippi State and Kentucky. Munson says so.
