Mike Leach hammered on social media as Mississippi State falls to LSU
Mike Leach was the talk of the SEC in Week 1 of the 2020 season after Mississippi State defeated then-defending national champion LSU 44-34 in Baton Rouge. After losing to LSU Saturday in Starkville, Leach is taking heat on social media.
Fans are calling out Leach’s team for its too little, too late comeback against the Tigers. MSU trailed 28-10 at the 11:32 mark of the fourth quarter. The Bulldogs then scored the next two touchdowns, cutting the lead to 28-25 with a successful 2-point conversion. Leach’s time management on the late TD drive, however, forced MSU in a difficult onside kick situation. The Bulldogs were flagged for illegal touching on the kick, giving LSU the ball with 1:53 left. Leach used Mississippi State’s final timeout for an unsuccessful challenge of the illegal touching. LSU was able to run out the clock.
Here’s a sample of what’s being said about Leach:
Mike leach is an idiot. I know highschool coaches that would be much better than him

Mike leach should be fired for that challenge. Literally handed game to LSU by burning the timeout

Mike Leach just cost himself the game with a pointless challenge. It burned his last timeout, and now his team will not get the ball. Not sure why he thought that was getting overturned. I guess that was his only chance. IDK man.

mike leach buddy what are you doing

With a timeout, you have to make them at least try to get first down. Losing the timeout on a wasted challenge you don’t even have to do that.

Mike leach time management looking like Andy Reid in 2014
— Devon Pyle (@DevonPyle18) September 25, 2021
Mike Leach: Throws for 50 times and starts the fourth quarter down multiple scores.
Also Mike Leach: Better establish the running game with less than 3 minutes to go and no urgency.

Mike Leach seems to think time management is a liberal hoax, too
