    Texas Tech and Wash St have been real superpowers without him right?

    Won what? He's never won a division in 18 years of coaching. His best two years resulted in a Cotton Bowl loss and an Alamo Bowl win

    Leach is a good coach with a ceiling. He won't make any of the top SEC West teams sweat, not that Mississippi State usually does that.

    Leach won the Apple Cup in his first year but was 0-6 against Petersen, never scoring more than 17 points in a game.

    Being surrounded by Bama, Georgia, Auburn, LSU, and even Arkansas all coached by people who care about crootin is a bit different than his situation at tech where he was the only d1 school for like 500 miles.

    And a lot less talent in that 500 miles than the 50 around him now.

    In between Price and Leach: 10-3, 5-6, 4-7, 6-6, 5-7, 2-11, 1-11, 2-10. They've been a terrible progam other than under Price and Leach. If the fanbase gives him time I'd bet he could win 7-9 games a year at Miss St which would be considered successful.
