Mike Leach details the issues facing his offense, how to better handle distractions
Mississippi State has had a season-long struggle on offense since the amazing start to the year against LSU. Coach Mike Leach explained on Wednesday on the SEC coaches media teleconference what has gone wrong for his Air Raid in his first year in Starkville.
“Biggest thing is distractions, not being able to work together in the spring, losing players because of the standard we have,” Leach said. “I think that you brace yourself for the ripple effect that it takes to play this week but it is constant… playing football is one of the most exciting things we can do, I think the players are excited about that… I just focus on coaching the guys and practice.”
This week against Georgia, it’s unclear which quarterback the Bulldogs will start between JT Daniels, Stetson Bennett or D’Wan Mathis. Leach was asked about them and if they’re planning to see one.
“They are kinda similar, one guy is gritty and tough, the other guy has a better arm, I think,” Leach said.
Mississippi State will meet Georgia at 7:30 p.m. ET in Athens, a game that will be televised on the SEC Network.
