    Good call. Not extending any coach to the maximum sends a terrible signal to recruits that we don't believe in him.

    agreed ... It also might help keep the coach from shopping himself but is an almost absolute must for recruiting
    OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA) - Ole Miss campus police ask students to behave at future baseball games following a recent incident.
    The university said students were reportedly throwing rocks at Georgia baseball players during last weekend's series.

    Also increases how much you have to pay him if things don't work out.

    We shouldn't keep a coach where this is a legitimate worry. Either we believe in a coach and show that by giving him the maximum extension, or we don't and we make a change.

    Why wouldn't we extend him? We showed pretty significant improvement from year 1 to year 2. Had some good wins over AU and AM. 2 bad calls away from being a 9 win team.

    Extend him? Sure. Give him a raise? No.

    In the era of transfer portal and NIL this means nothing anymore. A coach can be fired in the middle of contracts and players leave when they want. Stupid move if you ask me.

    Leach shopping? Does Key West have a football team? Ain't no one interested in him. Nothing to worry about.

    Sure

    If he has a good year this year he will get plenty of interest.

    Leach is at end of career. He got no real looks at WSU. Everyone knows he is a gemic scheme and he doesn't fit the culture today (he don't bother me but he does some).

    He can win 10 games this year and there will be little interest.

    This was warranted. He improved at a fairly decent rate last year. I still say we win 8 or 9 games this year with Egg Bowl win.

    Yep thats my opinion, you can have yours.

    Fact is who else wanted Leach when we hired him? Answer is nobody. He ain't done nothing at MSU to have people lined up. Hey I hope that changes but I think it will take more than one year to do that. If he has multiyears of success then I'm fine with people wanting him.

    Leach really wants to be here and win here. He isn't just collecting a check. I believe he can have success here if we can get players

    Leach is simply too eccentric for a lot of fan bases.

    He's not going to be at every MSU thing and be ra ra MSU like Coach O and Lane Kiffin are.
