Mike Leach is ready to get to work.

That was the message of his first team meeting at Mississippi State with his team assembled and eager to hear what their new coach has to offer the Bulldogs.

Leach comes to Starkville with a ton of fanfare and media hype but the reality is he’s elevated both Texas Tech and Washington State to heights those programs had not seen in modern college football history and likely won’t ever see again.

Now the hope in Starkville is that Leach can deliver those same results.

During his first team meeting, Leach challenged his Bulldogs to get ready to work.
