WATCH: Mike Leach embarks on Halloween candy rant after Mississippi State wins over Vanderbilt
There is nothing that creates an opportunity for football coaches to show their personality just like their teams easily dealing with an opponent, which is precisely what happened on Saturday, for the Bulldogs of the Mississippi State in a resounding victory over the Vanderbilt Commodores 45-6. The comfortable victory gave head coach Mike Leach ample opportunity to discuss a topic he is very familiar with: candy.
A week before Halloween, the SEC Network show mentioned how Mike Leach has an utter loathing for sweet corn, which led to a post-game question that led Leach to embark on a passionate tangent. about her favorite candies.
âI mean, I completely hate sweet corn,â Leach said, before discussing her favorites. “The gelatin bears, for sure … Haribo’s. It must be Haribo’s. And then the other thing I like is when they had the Sprees in a box. Exceptional. You have to go to the dollar store to find it, but I do.
“And then the last one … there is always innovation in candy, although some time ago I found out that Europe has better candies than us overall. is because they have everything gum. But they have these Nerds Clusters, which is new … which is good! Nerds Clusters is good. And then if you go for chocolate, probably Almond Joy . “
While it’s highly likely that Leach is now past the trick-or-treat stage, it was just treats for his Bulldogs on Saturday. Quarterback Will Rogers had his career-best four touchdown passes against Vanderbilt, while the Mississippi State defense limited the Commodores to just 155 total yards and six points on offense. Mississippi State’s victory brought them to the right side of .500, improving them to 4-3 this season.
