Mike Leach: "It takes a whole week to beat somebody."

Mississippi State stunned No. 6 LSU 44-34 on Saturday, as you know. But the least stunned guy in the stadium on Saturday was the guy who orchestrated the SEC's biggest upset in quite some time -- Mike Leach.

Leach was his typical even-keeled self throughout the game and post-game. And, as the video here shows, his message after the game -- the highest-ranked road win in program history -- was to immediately start talking about... next week.

"It takes a whole week to beat somebody. It takes an entire week to beat somebody," he said. "We didn't just beat them today. We beat 'em all week long. Never forget that."

By the way, next week Leach and his No. 16-ranked Bulldogs play their home opener against Arkansas.
