I was going to post that sound bite about California after I heard it listening to Bomani Jones' podcast yesterday. He's beena piece of crap for years. His rant didn't present a single counterpoint against letting athletes profit off of their likeness. Just old tired trumper tropes about California. What's he going to say when North Carolina passes a similar bill?

 He’s crazy enough that I could legit see his reason for taking the job is he’s trying to coach at schools with as many different shades of red* as possible


*maroon can be considered a shade of red, right?

That was my first thought, too. Honestly, it kind of seems almost like a lateral move for someone of his ilk. And while I can’t wait for the Lane v. Leach Egg Bowls and surrounding twitters, I think first and foremost I’d rather have Leach coaching the Kazzu li’l bro of the PNW rather than the Kazzu lil bro of Hickville Raciststate. Plus you KNOW Wazzu appreciates him more. I weep for Fatdamon, me, and every other #PXIIAD fan. It just got a lot less interesting.

His average record is 8-5, has never won a conference title, and has a system that’s out dated him.

It was a lazy and uninspired hire. Why would an sec school hire a coach barely treading water in the Pac 12? This would be like hiring Matt Campbell if he did the same crap for two decades. What does an 8-5 Pac 12 ceiling equal in the sec? Also they're going to hate that offense.

If you're hiring a coach of that ilk why wouldn't you go get Neil Brown?

He's been better than 8-5 three of the past five years.  I wouldn't call that his ceiling.

This was definitely a move up for him.  Plus, it gets him away from Kirk.

sports are entertainment, leach is entertaining, frank is entertaining, oscar is not.  also leach has been pretty steady.  oscar is about to follow up a big 12 champ season without even making the NIT.  also, oscar doesn't take any blame for anything.  hope that helps wacky.

Leach had Washington State 1 game away from making the CFP in 2018, if they beat Washington in the Apple Cup that year they were in.

Leach has won at crap programs Tech and Wazzou.  Taking out his first 3 seasons turning around each program, he has 8 or 9 wins in nine of twelve seasons.  Also, two seasons of 11 wins and one season of 6 wins (most recently). 

No idea if Leach will succeed in the SEC, probably not as few would in that division, but he is a good coach.

I think Wacky has a good point about Mike Leach being similar to oscar Weber when you look at their records. Both have a high floor (making bowl games/NCAA Tournament almost every year) and tend to make a run once every 5 years when the stars align.

Leach is much more entertaining than Bruceketball though, so he's got that going for him I guess.

Leach's offense will be baffling to the offensively conservative SEC.  I initially thought he was heading to a program that couldn't get traction in a conference with Alabama and LSU, but then remembered that Mississippi State was ranked #1 a few years ago.  My biggest concern is for Leach, and the lack of patience that Mississippi State has for their football coaches.  This is like their 3rd head coach hire in the past 5 years.

Exactly.  A Leach basketball equivalent would be in the tournament every year.
