Alabama trolls Mike Leach, Mississippi State following coach's first career shutout loss
Mike Leach’s offenses have typically been known for putting up a lot of points. That hasn’t quite been the case this year for Mississippi State, including this past Saturday against Alabama.
The Crimson Tide blanked the Bulldogs, 41-0, handing Leach the first shutout loss of his head-coaching career. It was a dominant performance by Alabama, which held Mississippi State to 200 total yards and forced three turnovers.
After the Tide routed the Bulldogs, they had some fun with the result on Twitter. When Leach was at Texas Tech, he became known for a speech about pirates that he once gave. From then on, people have always associated him with pirates.
Hence why Alabama’s victory tweet came with this phrase: “Walk the blank.”
It was the Crimson Tide’s first shutout win of the season, and it improved them to 6-0. Alabama also kept up its own strong offensive play, as it’s scored at least 38 points in each of its victories in 2020.
This week, Alabama is on a bye. But it will look to pick up where it left off when it travels to LSU on Nov. 14 at 6 p.m. ET on CBS.
