The SEC returned to play over the weekend, and things are starting to feel a little bit normal….right?

-What a glorious sight it was to have more games, and more ranked teams playing. Sure, you had the drama in the Big 12 with Kansas State coming back to beat Oklahoma, and Texas having a miracle in the last few minutes to survive Texas Tech…but that was only part of it!

-How about the Pirate, Mike Leach, at Mississippi State? Stanford transfer QB KJ Costello threw for an SEC record 623 yards (!!) in his first game as a Bulldog, and made Bo Pelini’s defense at LSU look bad in a defeat. Also—Florida puts up a 50-burger on Ole Miss, but the Rebels offense looked solid..

-Also….are Miami Hurricanes good, or is Florida State THAT bad?

Twitter giveth, and Twitter taketh away: Mike Leach is in hot water already at Mississippi State / Shut Up Sipple (sponsored by Bagels and Joe)

-Leach is popular on Twitter because he’s unlike most coaches: he has a very unique personality, and that is present in his press conferences, and also in his tweets…mostly a bunch of funny memes

-However, last week he had a tweet that showed a wife knitting a ‘scarf’ for her husband—actually a noose—that was a joke in the COVID-19 pandemic about getting through it. A little dark, but funny to a lot of people. However, a player entered the transfer portal because of it, and now Mississippi State is ordering Leach to raise his “cultural awareness” of the state. Is it necessary or over the top?
