Mississippi State football coach Mike Leach has passed away at 61 years-old after suffering a massive heart attack this past weekend. Reports stated that he suffered possible brain damage as a result of seizures. He was one of my favorite sports figures to post about. Mississippi State president Mark E. Keenum issued a heartfelt statement...
quote:

"Coach cast a tremendous shadow not just over Mississippi State University, but over the entire college football landscape. His innovative 'Air Raid' offense changed the game," Keenum said. "Mike's keen intellect and unvarnished candor made him one of the nation's true coaching legends. His passing brings great sadness to our university, to the Southeastern Conference, and to all who loved college football. I will miss Mike's profound curiosity, his honesty, and his wide-open approach to pursuing excellence in all things.
Leach's family also commented on his passing...
quote:

"Mike was a giving and attentive husband, father and grandfather," the Leach family said in a statement. "He was able to participate in organ donation at UMMC as a final act of charity. We are supported and uplifted by the outpouring of love and prayers from family, friends, Mississippi State University, the hospital staff, and football fans around the world. Thank you for sharing in the joy of our beloved husband and father's life."
R.I.P.

His feud with Craig James produced one of the funniest internet rumors I have ever heard. Top FIVE at least... definitely FIVE.

Wow, usually when someone passes that I only know it doesn't really hit emotionally. This one for some reason does a bit. RIP Pirate.
