Mike Leach can be ruthless at times, and Saturday was one of those instances.

Leach’s Mississippi State Bulldogs lost 31-28 to the Arkansas Razorbacks. The Bulldogs’ poor kicking game was a big reason for the defeat. Though they made all four of their extra points, Mississippi State went 0-for-3 on field goal attempts.

Starting kicker Brandon Ruiz missed two field goal attempts before being benched for Nolan McCord, who missed a 40-yard attempt to tie the game as time expired.

One of Ruiz’s misses was from 23 yards and was particularly egregious.

After the loss, Leach said in his postgame press conference that he was holding open kicker tryouts.

It’s hard to tell whether Leach is joking or serious, but we know he is not happy with his kicking game. His Bulldogs are now 5-4. By comparison, Arkansas’ Cam Little went 3/4 on field goals, and his team won.
