Mike Leach had seen enough after Mississippi State's 24-3 lead evaporated and decided he was going to send a message. If you blow a three-touchdown on Leach's team, you're not sitting down. Tough, but fair.
And it seems to have worked, because after the Bulldogs ended up getting the game to overtime and eventually won 39-33. Sometimes you need a good, old-fashioned Football Guy move to get the boys fired up. It does seem like a bit much and Leach definitely would have been clowned for this if Mississippi State didn't find a way to come back and win, but all's well that ends well, I guess.
If this trend continues, though, the Bulldogs might not be sitting for very long next week ...
Yeah, probably gonna be a long day, fellas!
